How upsetting. I was happy to see it on the quiz, as nobody ever gets it.

Taking this quiz four years later, I got all except Oahu. Hawaii crossed my mind, but I was like "nah, there's no island that looks like that there".

The giveaway for me with Oahu is the notch in the bottom with the 2 "fangs". That's Pearl Harbor.

I live in New York and i missed Long Island .-.

Well you know what they say...New Yorkers only care about themselves (or at least those of us in the city)

'okay. There are many successful narcissists in the world.

About 9 don't come from New York.

I've been to two of these islands (Puerto Rico and Vancouver) and i couldn't even identify them!

Yeah; sometimes, because if we haven't ever been there, then it might not be so high. But once we go there, our images of it, and their outlines, are completely erased, and we get a new view. So...sometimes, for purposes of identification, they're better left off.

Accept Formosa for Taiwan? Or is that too outdated?

Oh! Missed luzon and oahu. Funny thing, I knew they were from philippines and hawaii - but I didn't get specifically the names. Not bad, though, for a new eleven years old person.

Can we accept Kalimantan for Borneo?

Level 58
Mar 20, 2019
Kalimantan is not the name of the whole island, only for the part that is Indonesia. Otherwise you might as well accept Sabah, Brunei and Sarawak as well (none of which are the name of the whole island).

Hey Quizmaster, where did you find the images? I'm planning to do something similar.

I like the fact that Long island is actually a long island.
