Can't because "Somali" already appears on the quiz.

Well, you could have had a question like:

Western 1/3 of Somalia is known as......Somali_____.

Btw it's a friendly and safe place. I had a great camel pizza there.

From what I hear it's pretty much independent from Somalia too.

I tried literally every number between 1-100. Was raging because I thought the quiz was broken. Man am I an idiot

Ha, I definitely started doing that too. Once I reached 30, I thought for a second and the correct answer dawned on me.

May 14, 2020
I did one through 100, once I hit 30 I was surprised, but sure I hadn't missed any so kept going. When I reached 100 I thought, em maybe I missed 1? oww wait... haha. Not raging but laughing, I fell for it.

I did 1 through 100, then tried 0.
Level 72
Sep 12, 2020
Lol. While it only took me 1 and then 0, I can understand why you did what you did.

I misread it as '% who are muslim'.

I started at 100.

Yeah, I was down at 50% when I read the question again.. :p

There's another quiz about countries with highest percentage of Muslims, and I believed to remember Somalia having >99%. So here, I tried 0% first thing. :)

i saw another of these quizzes do that so i figured these questions are 0 or 100 and it's obviously gonna be 0

I was thinking "...Oh, man, it's probably piracy, but that sounds dumb." Then I gave up. No, piracy isn't stupid, but I sure am🤦

Good quiz. Only missed Land of Punt.

The state department's recommendations before traveling to Somalia are wild: draft a will, appoint a family member to be the point of contact with hostage takers, establish a proof-of-life protocol so your family knows how to confirm you're actually alive if you're taken hostage, leave a DNA sample with your medical provider in case they need to identify your body, draft a plan with loved ones regarding care of children and pets. Sounds like a good time.

You could add that Mo Farah was born in Somalia. You could include Siad Barre on the quiz as well, and/or al-Shabaab.
Level 65
Sep 30, 2020
Yeah, missing al-Shaabab or anything related to the civil war and waves of terrorism is definitely relevant

Zero is not a number but a place holder
Level 83

It's a number.

first sentence on wikipedia "0 (zero) is a number representing an empty quantity."

I like this quiz - but no one knows where Punt was. Archaeology’s best guess is that it could be anywhere around the southern Red Sea area (Although some place it much further afield) and not necessarily Somalia.

imo terrorism should also be accepted for piracy since its pretty prevalent there
