The one about cities ending in W is a great question. Suddenly have to think about cities in a new way. Tricky, but not impossible.

I agree, good question, I got 3 but didn't think of Moscow, so obvious once you know.
Level 64
Jan 17, 2017
I didn't read it correctly and thougth they had to start with W... So of course I only got Warsaw.

I disagree. Questions about spelling are trivial and based on arbitrary distinctions. And yes, I know it's a trivia site, but having knowledge of geography and understanding of the world is useful; knowing what cities share a common ending letter is not. And the distinction is arbitrary when you consider that 3/4 of them come from cities that pronounce letters differently than the English "w."

I would have thought that Kraków had a larger population? Or do you mean by area?

Crud. You are correct. I added Krakow. I also added the caveat (by metro area) so that I wouldn't have to add Wroclaw as well.

I only got Warsaw out of the cities that end in W... because I read it 'cities that start with W'. That sort of thing happens when you really need sleep but decide to come to JetPunk instead.

Missed Glasgow too, but was convinced Britanny was correct; I never realised until the answers were revealed it has two Ts and one N!

Cracow should be accepted as well

I love how some sources are set on Mount Elbrus as the tallest mountain in Europe yet others say it's Mount Blanc which I got taught in school. Very marginal.
Level 68
Dec 10, 2017
we learned that in English speaking countries Mount Elbrus is usually considered to be the highest peak while in many others, my country (Czech Republic) included, we tend to think of Mont Blanc as the tallest mountain. But on this site it is always Elbrus..
Level 60

I was also taught Mont Blanc. (Make sense, since I am from Czechia too). But Elbrus is most definitely the correct answer. I guess growing up in the former eastern bloc in the 90's, the social climate wasn't too keen on recognising Russia as part of Europe.

Realised 'Suomi' was one of the Scandinavian countries with 10 seconds left, typed as fast as I could and managed to guess the first two and get halfway through the last one... which of course turned out to be the right answer. Darn you Jetpunk!

What do random skiers have to do with geography?

They were not random. The skiers were specifically selected,

Whenever I see "What does ____ have to do with geography?" it usually looks like code for "I have no sense of culture."

Because they're places in Switzerland, not skiers.

Cool quiz ! I fidnt get glasgow and basel, felt pretty silly not thinking of glasgow. But oddly i wasnt the only one, at all...! I wonder why people failed to think of it. Maybe focussing on eastern europe?
Level 60
Aug 28, 2021
Yeah, I missed Glasgow as well. I thought: "the other three are from eastern Europe, so the fourth is probably some tiny place in Poland I never heard of." Given the percentage, I can't be the only one.

Fun quiz! Must say I was a bit disappointed that I tried Ski and it wasn't accepted. Didn't think I'd have to write Skiing so I thought maybe I just don't know what makes those cities famous.

Hey! Slightly nitpicky, but would you consider changing the Cologne question to "what German city gave its name to a type of fragrance", rather than "shares its name"? I feel that, as formulated, the question implies either a coincidence, or an unknown precedence, whereas it is in fact very clear that the fragrance (invented in Cologne in 1701), was named after the town, which has existed since Roman times. I feel that, worded like this, the question would prompt more people to learn about the origins of "Kölnisch Wasser", which some might find interesting. Many thanks!

why wouldn't the option "caucasians" be accepted?

Cause that is incorrect...

Maybe change the "what sea.." to "what part of the mediterranean sea..."

Maybe you would want to consider rephrasing the Magyar question? They came from Asian steppes, so present day Russia, Kazakhstant or whatever. Maybe something like "which country did they settled in?" might be a better way to put it?

But hey, noone argued about it yet, so the question is probably fine as it is. I'm honestly surprised noone did, given how nitpicky we can be. :-D

Level 39

There's a mistake in this quiz. What country do Magyars come from? Answer: Mongolia (or Russia, Kazakhstan could be accepted too)

Hungars definitely don't come from Europe even though they are keen to spread the myth. They settled in Central Europe relatively recently from human evolution standpoint (1100 yrs ago) and been occupying central European territories till 1920 when Treaty of Trianon served the justice.

Google: "A member of a people who originated in the Urals and migrated westward to settle in what is now Hungary in the 9th century AD."

The Urals don't stretch all the way to Mongolia, so that's incorrect. Also, the question isn't asking about the ethnic origins of Magyars; it's asking about who "Magyars" are. Most Hungarians belong to the "Magyar" ethnic group, so you can say modern "Magyars" come from Hungary. You can be as nitpicky as you want but it's obvious what the answer to that question is.
