@blacklab you dont know on which geography quiz? I see the same damn question and answer ( by different people) on every.single.geography quiz... It get's tiresome, both the question and the answer.

weirdly enough almost more than the infinite debates about cyprus. I guess they are somewhat entertaining.

Nothing about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester,_New_Hampshire

In fact, I think the nearest football team is the New England Patriots.

Well, to be fair, football(or soccer as you say) is estimated to have a global following of 4 billion(that's what worldatlas.com says) while baseball has(according to a different source) about 500 million fans worldwide and basketball has around 400 million .

First, improve your vocabulary so you're not using words that aren't words. Second, learn something about the rest of the world so you can score better on quizzes instead of just complaining about them.

Man, the non-US questions are always like "complete the name of this continent: _ceania" and the US questions are always like "what is the seventeenth smallest town in Wyoming".

Answer stats show that this is well-calibrated for most JetPunk users, so I can't complain, but I'm complaining anyway.
