The Spanish infamously also sacked Rome but didn't take the city for themselves.
Like when someone says there was an camel in my frontyard, you can call bullshit (seems like an odd claim but it actually happened a few houses away from me, they were kept on a field nearby belonging to the circus that was there)...they decided to go for a stroll and were eating his garden that was 3 years ago. I remember the same thing happened or or 2 years before/after with another animal I think, but cant find any info besides the camel incident)
Or when you say, I ve been to 160 countries, or when you say I can eat 5 pizzas in 15 minutes.
This quiz however uses the urban area or agglomeration according to citypopulation.de Each country defines this differently though. So it is hard to properly compare.
