Yes, well traveling South from Detroit puts you in Canada, too. What's your point? Anyone who puts Canada being South of the USA is silly or has a hard time spelling M-e-x-i-c-o.

Trek222 is correct. There are many places in Uruguay where you could travel straight west and end up in Brazil. The same technicalities apply in most of the other answers too. For example, if you travel straight south from Detroit, USA, you'll end up in Canada.

@Kquilikquiit if you have the grasp of geographical knowledge, to complete this with ease (as did I), I really don't think it can be made much more difficult. Add more questions, and take some time off the clock, maybe. But that's something Sporcle usually does. The quizzes here are generally a tad more forgiving for the less hardcore quizzers, and rightfully so.

That was one of the two I missed as well, along with Brunei. But even missing only two and scoring 92% and beating the average score, I still only beat 36.5% of the test takers. I'm not good at math, but I'm surprised that scoring above average still only gives me 36.5%.

They should add "when multi countries are in the same direction, name the one with the longest border with the country." or else... • In El Ceniso, north of the city is Mexico. • In Detroit, south of the city is Canada. • In Corredores, north of the canton is Panama • In Qesm as Saloum, south of the place is Libya. • In Damascus, north of the city is Lebanon. +1 this if you want to see more.
