With all of the Geography quizzes on this site, i'm REALLY surprised to see Jutland bringing up the rear.

Jean is french for John (they come from Johannes). Jacques is french for James (they both come from Jacomus I think). Jack and Jacques are what we call "false friends".

But it accepts things like "Junea" for Juneau and "Jekyl" for Jekyl, so Janice is reasonable.

It would be quite concerning if it didn't accept "Jekyl" for Jekyl.

Again, giving in to idiocy. Janis Joplin is not Janice Joplin, any more than Kuala Lumpur is Kuala Lampur (which, by the way,,this quiz does not accept).

By this logic, Janet Joplin should be accepted, too.

Idiocy, really? Janis and Janice sound exactly the same. Lumpur and Lampur don't. Give the man a break...

what crusher said, if it is a logical spelling and it sounds nearly exactly the same ( your examples do not come close) it is reasonable to accept. Unless it is words you see written al over the place. In which case you can be more firm and expect a better spelling.

For example, ingland might sound like england.. but should not be accepted because it is a word you come across written very often.

So 47% know Jeb at the time of my comment. Will this rise over the next year?

Are we part of a cunning research project to see if a brand / politician's recognition is changing over time?

According to general consensus (most of the world), capital of Israel should be West Jerusalem, not Jerusalem.

Israel identifies its capital as Jerusalem. Regardless of international recognition, legality, or morality, I am quite sure you could figure out the answer and complete this quiz.

I spent a little too long thinking that the 'Marley and Bolt' clue was talking about the dogs from Marley & Me and Bolt. I still got it though because, as we all know, all dogs go to Jamaica. :)

I tried so many spellings of Jekyll. Jeckel, Jecal, Jeckal, Jeckle. Then tried them all again with Doctor in front. Arggg.

With how lenient the site is with certain country names (cough cough "Portagel"), you'd think we could get a bit of a break on Jekyll with a heckin' y double l like that ever comes up anywhere else. I mean sure, it's super famous, but also I've heard/said it about a thousand times more frequently than read/written it.

Also it is not, like, clearly more famous than Portugal.

Me too! Jeckel, Jeckell, Jekel, Jeckell, Jecel, etc &c et al... English jetpunk allows so many more misspellings than the French quizzes, it's really frustrating it doesn't accept any of these...
