I feel that every time a quiz has the word "America" or any of its characteristics, the comments get spammed with how "everyone" hates the country. Don't hate on us because we are large, highly populated, and have a great economy. And if you are really that jealous of the country then why don't you just pack up your bags and move here?

It's an inferiority complex which manifests outwardly as a superiority complex. The guy complaining in the comments above is clearly suffering from this. The frequency and nature of the complaints leave only one plausible explanation.

How is yogurt related to Greece? It was invented in Central Asia (or perhaps the Middle East or India), its name comes from Turkish and until the 20th century, it was popular in the entire Ottoman Empire and elsewhere, not just Greece. Or is there an English proverb or phrase or such about Greek yogurt? For example, I hadn't heard of Greek yogurt until just now.

Good grief - a basic quiz and people can't get the concept: there are three clues for each country and they are to be taken together. No one is saying that beer, for example, is purely and solely a German thing.

Tierra del Fuego is a province from argentina. It should have been something like ''Magallanes and Antartica Chilena'', which it is really from Chile. Please, correct it.

Tierra del Fuego is an archipelago where half of the biggest island is owned by Argentina (that's the province you're talking about) and the rest is owned by Chile.

Tierra Del Fuego is a part of Argrntina, not Chile. Argentina actually fits more clues in that question than Chile.
+1
level 67
Aug 9, 2018
Tierra del Fuego is split between Chile and Argentina, with most of it being in Chile. So two of the clues (Tierra del Fuego and Andes) could be either Chile or Argentina, but Easter Island locks it down as only Chile.

To Cyanidecarrot: The USA's ultimate downfall will be because it keeps sticking its nose into other countries' affairs and routinely gets stabbed in the back as thanks. If we adhered to the Monroe Doctrine we would not have this problem. Let all of those who so gleefully criticize the USA at the slightest provocation (such as on these quiz sites), fend for themselves, and let us mind our own business for once.

The Monroe Doctrine was implemented at a time when the world was more fractured. International relations are more complicated now, and countries are inextricably linked. If the economy of Europe tanks, it will affect the US. The US brands its intervention as "humanitarian aid" because it's good PR, but most of its intervention has a practical purpose. Becoming a hermit state in the 21st century is not beneficial.
