Accept Meaning : Recieved
Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte doesn't really have much going for it other than a cabal of politicians and a crocodile infested lake, and neither are good incentives for human habitation.
Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan
Same goes for the americas, they are connected, but the Panama Canal divides them...
And does the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal (outside of Germany also known as Kiel-Canal) make the most northern part of Germany and the non-island-part of Denmark into an island?
I'm sure there are more examples, isn't there a canal through Scotland? (but Great Britain already is an island anyways...)
Maybe we should correct the continent-count and declare the new supercontinent of Eurasfrica...
Baku IS actually in Europe, so Azerbaijan should be in the Europe capitals quiz (since these quizzes are about capitals, not about the country itself).
As for Cyprus, it is an island, so we measure by the closest landmass, which is Turkey. Since we already decided that Turkey is in Asia, Cyprus is in Asia too.
Cyprus and Armenia don't have any territory in Europe, geographically they're completely in Asia. They're just in the same economic region as Europe along with Azerbaijan and Georgia.
I'd call it Burma, not Myanmar because the language and script the language uses. The people are called Burmese. Myanmar is just what the military government that wants you to call it.
EU, formally known as EEC I wonder if it was stilled called EEC people would be coming with the same argument. Maybe the u throws them of and subconsciously think it equates to Europe.
And ow yea, have you heard, the UK and norway are not in europe, they are not in the EU afterall, so how could they be..
B) This is a bit long, but I shouldn't complain.
Just like you can call Panama City Panama.
It's like having Egypt in Asia because of Sinai.
There are quizzes that mention that Istanbul straddles both continents and that Siberia is Asian, but in general some arbitrary decisions need to be made for consistency, especially for continental vaguenesses. Heck, there are all sorts of debates over just the number and names of continents.
(and San Juan too, ;) )
Colombo WAS the capital until the 80s
Kotte is so hard to spell. I have a world map colombo is the capital
And I'm done! That was an easy quiz,
