A previous version of this quiz had a mistake. Newton didn't observe a falling apple in Cambridge. It happened about 50 miles away. The question has been replaced.

Versailles is not a city, it's a palace in Paris. So you really have two questions to which the answer is Paris.

Paris's tentacles reach out to Versailles, and you can absolutely drive from one to the other without seeing countryside. But it is technically a separate city.

*accurate according to mainstream Muslim tradition. There's some research that is fairly compelling that Muhammad never visited Mecca or Medina, and was actually from Petra. There are even some scholars who doubt the man existed at all, though they are in the extreme minority.

100,000 civilians dead in Tokyo, another 140,000 in Hiroshima, and and another 225,000 in Nagasaki. Incredible. When I was in Japan, the people were so welcoming, and they had a such an objective view of the war, their behavior in it, and the role the Americans played. I did not get the slightest sense of bad blood. Most of them went out of their way to tell me how much they love Americans. Pretty remarkable.

I think the quiz instructions are missing a word (it says "in which of these events took place").

I need someone to make a hardcore version of this, just to call it "Room where it happened". Yes, I'll see myself out.
