Singapore has a tropical climate, so it's temperatures do not change much throughout the year and day. Countries with temperate climates are more likely to exceed 37˚C during the year.

April is the hottest month of the year in Singapore, followed by May. This is due to light winds and strong sunshine during those months. The highest recorded temperature is 41.0 °C (105.8 °F) on 17 April 2019 at Tiong Bahru.

So many Americans think they live in a terrible, no good country because they have never been anywhere else.

Spend some time in the Third World and you will quickly realize how good you have it. Then, head over to a jobs website in Eastern Europe, take a look at the starting salaries, and praise the stars that you were born in the United States.

If there is one thing that Americans lack, it is gratitude.

According to Wikipedia, recent data suggests that just under 50% (47.1% as of 2012) identify as Christian, orthodox or otherwise. So they don't qualify as a majority apparently.

Maybe, you can consider Cyprus as an Asian country geographically, and a European country culturally and politically. And by the way, the EU membership should not be the main reason to determine whether a country is part of Europe or not. Switzerland, for example, is not a member of the EU.

Glaciers in Africa - the Rwenzori Mountains straddle the border of Uganda and the DR Congo - and the glaciers are on both sides of the border. In fact, Thymann's 2012 expedition to map the Rwenzori glaciers determined that most of the retreat of the glaciers was on the east (Uganda) side - the Mt Stanley glaciers on the DRC side were still intact. DRC should be on the list.

Russia is a christain country and is in europe and asia, so it should count?
+1
Level 43
Dec 2, 2021
I think it's arguable, but not because of its location, but rather the percentage and the definition of majority. Does a religion has to be believed by more than half of the population to be declared majority, or does it just need to be the largest religion in the country to be called as such? Depending on what polls you find, less than half of the population of Russia believe in Christianity (around 40%, I think), but it is still the largest religion there. Some of the other polls do put the percentage of Christian Russians at around 70% though. But then, Christianity prevails in the European part of Russia, not in its Asian part.
