Man 9/10...I totally would have gotten Athens if the distance was in miles rather than kilometers.

It is not that hard to work out, 5/8 of a mile is a km. 50 miles = 80 kilometres etc.

it does look that way, because the complaint is so patently ridiculous. It mirrors and parodies other similar complaints made by Europeans about quizzes in miles, which were equally ridiculous, though apparently made earnestly.

WolfCam: It's also why Malta and Gozo were so strategically important since centuries. In between two continents AND a mandatory path for anybody who wants to sail between Western and Eastern Mediterranean Sea.

I think Malta ought to get bonus points for being completely surrounded by water. Easier to get to Warsaw than Malta. Also some of these places are very connected to the outside world by air routes, others less so.

Just pedantic, so it makes no real difference, but it's "farthest" from any country's capital.

yea, and so should New Ork ...

I am not one of those that think the spelling needs to be 100 percent, and that everything else is false and therefor never should be accepted or you would not learn anything. But this makes a totally different word. Now if you were to ask for Rejkjavik or Reykjavic to be accepted, that I would understand, because it sounds the same and some countries prefer to use c's and others k's and some y's and other j's.

Well, really, only Reykjavik is actually remote. The others are actually pretty close together, speaking as a Canadian. Makes you think though.

Moscow is fairly remote, but yeah, people outside of North America and Australia tend to have a very different concept of "far"
