This is true, but the UN headquarters is in New York and the EU is, for all intents and purposes, headquartered in Brussels.

I'm sorry - did I miss the part where your opinion trumps the EU treaties? Why is everyone okay with South Africa having three capitals, but not with the EU doing the same?

That would be true if Geneva was either the legislative or the judiciary capital of the UN, but it isn't, so, no.

I'm not sure exactly what the analogy is for Manila... San Juan is the capital of Puerto Rico, but Luzon is not a political entity, so that's the wrong analogy. San Juan is the largest city on the island of Puerto Rico, but Manila is not the largest on Luzon (Quezon City is). Perhaps you're resting on "San Juan is the largest metro area on the island of Puerto Rico."

It's the logical answer. You could say that it's the largest urban areas on each island, if that makes you happy.

For nearly a century the Mediterranean city of El Azizia in northern Libya has held the official title for having been the hottest place on Earth ever recorded. But the world record was taken away on Thursday after an investigation by the World Meteorological Organisation found the measurement was probably bungled by someone who misread a thermometer. In striking out the Libyan record – after 90 years to the day – the title of the hottest ever place on Earth passes to Death Valley in California, where the temperature reached 56.7C in 1913, the WMO said.

The answer New Zealand seems wrong. The analogy was Yankee (resident of the US) to America (a continent or two) so for Kiwi (resident of NZ) the answer is difficult but Oceania would surely be closer?
