Skye without doubt one of the most mystical Islands you could ever visit. Amazing

I looked up pictures to see what you meant, and WOW. Made me all nostalgic for the time I was in Ireland. The Aran Islands have a similar "mystical" feel about them, as Skye indeed looks like it would have. They were my favorite part of my visit, of all Ireland, and that's saying something.

Lyon is not the second biggest city of France, it's Marseille. (Marseille's population is almost twice of Lyon's.) Plus a 2008 Brasilia study, shows that the longest river is not the Nile (6852 km) but the Amazon (6992 km). The quizz is nice nonetheless. :)

The Brazilian are not objective on that matter, thus the results are dubious imo. As for Lyon, it is the third city proper, but the second urban area.

I would agree... if the whole point was not to find terms for the concept that were four letters long and started and ended with the appropriate letters.

That was simply embarrassing. City of the Iliad in Turkey and all I can think of is Ilium or Iconium. I will now beat myself senseless with a copy of Homer.

There is no such thing as an emir in the UAE. They are called sheikhs, presidents, vice-presidents, but not emir. That's informal and can only be applied to other countries such as Qatar.
