One of my favourites, geography seems to be a basic element of quizzes.

I know this sounds like I'm being pedantic... but the outback is not a region of Australia. Not in the same way that all these others are anyway. There's no borders or anything to 'the outback' is basically just a vague notion.

Still it is like saying the jungle. All the others are based on geographical areas, not a trait (little population/forestation)

“The jungle” isn’t automatically synonymous with any particular country, whereas “The Outback” is always associated with Australia and is never applied to any similar environment in another country.

But this quiz is about regions, not environments. The outback may not be a technical region, but it's also not a region in any other sense of the word. "Outback" is little more than an Australian term for "wilderness", and wilderness is not a region of anywhere.

Of course. It has a tall wall built by the Wet Pampas people to keep the rains on their side. It's a very tall wall.

I love this site, but my only minor complaint is that when I take a recently-updated quiz (like this one, apparently) that's still listed with 8,000 quiz takers, my scoring is somehow based only on the people who have taken it since the update. Thus, a score of 19/21 is only good enough for the 25th percentile of quiz takers, because the sample size seems to be 16 (very knowledgeable) people instead of 8,000.

This becomes less of a problem if you just get them all right :) It is an interesting point though, as more people take the quiz, your score could move up (or down) the percentile, but I assume you don't get more points for it, or have them taken away.

Not nearly as bad as when your score gets completely wiped out when they rewrite a quiz.

Agree, and apparently a LOT of quizzes have been reset lately. It seems every time I log on my score is lower than the day before. I don't think I'll ever reach level 73.

Got 'em all with 1:34 left. Lesson #1 is move on to the next clue IMMEDIATELY if you don't know the answer so you have time left to take some educated guesses on the ones you don't know. I was absolutely certain on only about sixteen of these clues.
