Wikipedia also says there are 5 main islands of Japan. If you are using Wikipedia as the reference for Hawaii having 8 then I think you should use the same reference for Japan. Just saying.

Too many questions that are not familiar to a non American quizzer - or at least this one! Michael Jordan, innings in a baseball game, Bill of Rights, and what the heck is A.C.T??

Being a non-American, I don't know what the ACT is, but all the rest either I managed to guess (like the Bill of Rights) or I knew anyway (like Michael Jordan).

I mean I knew Jordan as a European, bc basketball is very popular here (NBA's latest MVPs have been from Europe) and 911 from movies, but had no idea about parades, trombones, innings, feet and ACT scores. All alien concepts to me.

I guess 50% of the people that took this quiz are american. Well or more but suck at math :p cause that one seems extremely easy when you are american and impossible when you are not (or at least spend some amount of time there) 911 is quite well known, it comes up in movies a lot, but the info nummer never does. So most if not all the guesses are from americans.

I knew of 911, but not the other number. Got lucky by trying a couple of round numbers.

Only a handful of country uses 911 as their emergency country. For example I live in Hong Kong and our emergency number is 999.

Great Quiz! However, we don't know how many wise men there were, and I counted five main Japanese islands.

10, did much better than I was expecting. Not sure how I got 64, I just thought there were 4 main islands of Japan so I did multiples of 4. For the movie one I knew the 2nd one had to be 7 but I guessed for 300
