The London one almost got me, because I wanted it to be White Hart Lane. Arguably more important than the answer anyway. #COYS

I don't think the Gold Coast is any more a region of West Africa than the Slave Coast or the Grain Coast. An archaic European name, but no more, I think.

Africa itself is an archaic European name, so therefore we may not call Africa Africa any more, do you understand?

Could change it to Australia which would be my first guess for a place known as the Gold Coast.

Did this quiz exist before without any part of the answers filled in? I think I remember taking it.

Did anyone else find it mildly disconcerting that the color was in English for every answer except one?

Maybe you know it as Schwarzwald ?

That's how my mind went. Do I know a black forest? I do know a Schwarzwald (which in my head instantly translates to black forest. So I "say" the one word but think the other). Things get weird when you think in 3 languages at once haha.

It's a great place to visit, very picturesque, with good skiing and hiking, and beautiful lakes. Also, I'm not a fan of chocolate cakes, but Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (black forest cake) is to die for!

Thank you, Betty Crocker, for giving me Gold Coast. I received a recipe card library for a wedding gift in the 1970s, and the first recipe I tried was Gold Coast stew from the international section. It was awful, and it became a family joke that has continued for over 43 years, - for example, "Kids, if you don't behave, your mom will make you eat Gold Coast stew." (I think I should have skipped the part that said to blend 3/4 c. peanut butter with a can of tomato paste. The chili powder and nutmeg didn't really help, either.)

Ethiopia to Khartoum? Why not Sudan?

Possibly because there are other rivers which flow from Ethiopia to Sudan, like the Dinder and Tekeze. The confluence of the Blue and White Nile rivers is at Khartoum.

I walked down to that edge and dipped my sneaker in the water, hoping to get the left side dyed white and the right side blue. It didn't happen.

The north american questions had me a bit stumped. Hadn't heard of some of them. Live and learn!

I agree, this quiz is quite US-centric. The American answers are much more obscure than the rest for anyone living elsewhere.

I breezed through that quiz in seconds, all happy and self-assured, until the very last question, which absolutely stumped me. Very nice!

For the Gold Coast one, i think more people know about the city of Gold Coast in Australia than Africa, or you could maybe just mention it.

That got tough toward the end. Got the first 15, then missed 5 of the last 7. Good quiz, though.

Would've been nice to have more foreign words for colours, just off the top of my head: Mont Blanc, Côte d'Azur, Montenegro, Amarillo.

the red square should be removed because it's just a mistranslation, the correct translation is the beautiful square
