If you know all the capitals of all countries recognised by jetpunk, it's quite an easy starter. Lots of jetpunk quizzers know this stuff.

Same. Even though it's pretty accurate, I was hoping it wouldn't be accepted. I'd rather not get the point than have it refered to as being made from mud.

I think "Greenwich" should be considered for the Prime Meridian. There are even multiple prime meridians on Earth, not just the GMT one.
