7 American landmarks. I refuse to believe that 41% of the world's most famous landmarks are in the US. A bit more variation wouldn't do any harm, especially for us non-Americans.

A bit Ameri-centric even for Americans. I have been known to read a book or flip through a National Geographic from time to time. But I've never seen that bleeping Arch.

This quiz is not titled "Most Famous World Landmarks"; it's just Landmarks Picture Quiz. All of these are landmarks, & the Quizmaster happened to select these for the first iteration of the quiz. I love geography & other places & cultures more than most Americans, but in this case I see no reason to complain.

I have to agree that there was an excess of American ones on here. I got them all (I'm Canadian) except Mt. Fuji, all I could think of was Mauna Kea (I have a photo of it on my wall) and the shape is pretty similar. As for changing some of the American ones, how about Angkor Wat, Acropolis, Brandenburg Gate, Uluru, Easter Island, Niagara Falls (partly american, probably more world-known than the STL arch), The Louvre, CN Tower, Lake Louise, Arc de Triomphe, St. Basil's Cathedral. Just to name a few.

Yeah. In New Zealand our famous landmarks include the Skytower in Auckland, the Beehive (Parliament) in Wellington, a giant gumboot in Taihape, a giant kiwifruit in Te Puke, a giant carrot in Ohakune, a giant L&P bottle in Paeroa, and a giant trout in Gore. I might create a quiz for the big landmarks of NZ..

I think his point was that an abundance of US landmarks would be more appropriate to measure in tons (2000 pounds), rather than in tonnes (1000 kilograms).

Yeah it's easy. The Gateway Arch is only known to Americans and people who do Jetpunk quizzes, so it's not really a problem. Mount Fuji is the only natural landmark here - that's not important but thought i'd mention it.

Also, a general question if anyone can answer it. What's the French equivalent of "landmark"? I looked it up on Google Translate, but I'm not sure it's correct. Would love to translate this series to French!

Point de repère is the correct translation. You could have also used an online French/English dictionary (I used Larousse). Not only that but I asked someone who speaks fluent French, and she could confirm the that is right.

"Point de repère" doesn't sound that good. It's better not to make a literal translation."Lieux célèbres" or "Lieux remarquables" would be better, imo.

I am so fed up with all the comments complaining that certain quizzes are too America-centric. If I were on a British quiz site and a preponderance of the answers were about the UK it would never even occur to me to complain that the site was too British biased. Don't these people realize that when they are on JetPunk they are visiting the US?? If you don't like it here, create your own site! Besides, President Trump will probably curtail foreign access to all American web sites anyway.

I know other people have said this already, but 7/17 in the US is mad... Other countries have much more impressive monuments and landmarks than the St Louis Arch or the Washington Memorial, they could be repalced with the CN tower, Petronas towers, Westminster Palace (and Big Ben), St Peter's Basilica, St Basil's Cathedral, Ankor Wat etc All of these seem much more deserving of being in one of these quizzes.

Yes, but when someone goes to St. Louis they say, "We went to the Arch," not, "We toured the Jefferson Expansion Memorial today." Either way it's probably code for, "We went to the Casino Queen."

What bumpkin said, but, also, like it or not, Africans simply haven't built very much of note. It says a lot when you consider that, even though Ethiopia likes to brag about never being colonized and the Italians only occupied the capital for a couple years in the 1930s... still... walk around Addis Ababa today and you'll see most of the stuff there was built by Italians. And they still call the downtown area the piazza.

You could add in the stele of Aksum, the stone hewn churches of Lalibela, a few famous mosques in Morocco and Mali... but in the end there is precious little to pick from.
