I also doubt that countries of Oceania or the Caribbean would appear on this quiz - no matter what the cutoff.
That is like, when someone says; "I counted all the girls in the room, besides the girls with coats on" And then you claim that the girls with coats on suddenly arent girls anymore?!? Just because he mentioned he didnt count the GIRLS with coats on (or ISLANDS with a size smaller than 10km2)
I am counting all the dogs, but not the dogs with spots. "OMG he is saying that dogs with spots arent dogs !!!!!"
totally makes no sense...
when someone says "islands smaller than 10km2 are excluded" and you accuse them of saying that those arent islands, something goes very wrong in your logic.
In an amusement park when it says girls shorter than 1.20m arent allowed in this ride. Would you complain to the owner of the park and accuse him of claiming that girls under 1.20m arent girls? sounds preposterous right?
(PS I changed it to girls instead of kids, because well it is not universally agreed upon what ages you are considered a kid)
I could add, my country has about 45 (more like 55 if you count the ones that used to be islands but are now connected with dams for instances)
I guess for me it might be that they dont totally feel part of western europe ( as much as the others) but also not really part of eastern europe. I have no other explanation. It keeps happening time and time again.
