This is probably one of my favorite quizzes on the site, although I would suggest expanding it to maybe 10-15 answers. I can't think of too many right now, but maybe add something about kalbahamut.

Hilarious and familiar quiz. You could add "Turkey is not in Asia" and "Russia is not in Asia". You could also add "Taiwan is not a country". And something about how a certain fellow always gets credit for inventing the lightbulb.

Russia claims to be a Eurasian country, in Russian schools they are taught that Europe and Asia are a single continent, I believe it is for stability reasons to prevent the Eastern oblasts from becoming more unruly.

You forgot a period in the last question! Fix it now or realize you're WRONG! This quiz was WAYYY to easy! I haven't been born yet and I typed in ALL the answers AND source code for this page (and the rest of JetPunk) in just 0.0000000001 seconds, which can be seen when you do Control U.

(I don't mean this all, I'm just joking around. :))

U.S. residents are only 4% of the world population, but 25% of the questions on the quiz are about the U.S! Way too U.S.-centric!!

Some suggestions to add on:

Colombo is the capital of Sri Lanka, not Sri Jaruyigsdjvnbejpura Kotte!

"Germany" didn't exist in [year before 1990].

It's Côte d'Ivoire, not Ivory Coast.

Australia is an island!

Russia is in Asia!

“Australia is an island”, definitely missing here :)

Also:

“Istanbul is in Europe, not Asia/in Asia, not Europe”

“It says in the headline, ‘biggest cities’, but the quiz is about metro population”

I’d argue some of these arguments aren’t good enough. You don’t see these nearly as much as Cyprus, and I’d rather they’re too similar to be added in addition.

So you're going to include a question about Trump but not any other world leaders? This quiz is WAY too US-centric.

...wait, what do you mean the Quizmaster is from the US and knows the most about his own country? Personally I think it's a bit America-centric that he wasn't born someplace else.

And also asking to accept the really obscure alternative to a name everyone knows, just so you can show off how much you know. "Please accept 'Leslie Lynch King' as a type-in for Gerald Ford."
