Hubris related to the whole first comment thing led to my downfall: couldn't spell Elbrus for the life of me.

@CoolDood It is both the kangaroo and emu on their coat of arms. The question says one of Australia's national animals...so yes, you are partially right.

Regards the logic, It's not specifically that they can't walk backwards, it's more the "always moving forward" part that is the basis of the logic. Also, we're the only country in the world who eats our national animal. Nom nom.

In school we learned that Mt Blanc was the highest mountain of Europe. Checking the map I am still not convinced it's Elbrus (which I never heard of before). Anyway I can accept "Mt Blanc" really doesn't fit as an answer in this quiz.

THERE'S A HUGE MISTAKE HERE!! IT SAYS: EUROPE'S TALLEST MOUNTAIN, ANSWER "ELBRUS". THAT IS WRONG; ELBRUS IS LOCATED IN ASIA, WHILST THE ACTUAL TALLEST EUROPEAN MOUNTAIN IS MONT BLANC. SHAME ON YOU JETPUNK!

Yes, and while we're at it, can we also discuss whether to call it Burma/Myanmar, if Cyprus is in Europe or Asia, if the Hague is accepted as capital for the Netherlands, and if Wales is a country or not? Because those things have definitely never been addressed on jetpunk before, and I, for one, would really like to see them argued about in multiple comment threads til the dead horse is like, REALLY dead.

The Hague (or, properly, Den Haag) is the legislative capital of the Netherlands. Like South Africa, the Netherlands has more than one capital.

ehm no... the netherlands only has one capital... just because others cant remember that, that doesnt change the facts.. and it is comments like the above that perpetuate this confusion.

Where do you draw the boundary between Europe and Asia? Normally the Caucasus Mountain watershed is the boundary in that portion of the world. Elbrus is clearly on the European side of the Caucusus divide.

Talking about a world cup but not specifying the sport is a little confusing and not all countries in the EU use the Euro. It would also be helpful for us lazy people if you accepted "Eiffel" for the Paris question.
+2
Level 59
Mar 17, 2019
How is not specifying the sport confusing? I'm not aware of any other world cups that happened in 1966, but then my sporting knowledge is rather limited, but if there was then I can't imagine there was an overwhelming number with champions beginning with "E". Besides, football is the most popular sport in the world, and the fifa world cup is very well known, so that would be the most logical assumption to make. If that question confused you, I think that would be cause for concern, in all honesty

The clue "tallest" mountain is misleading, that is Mauna Kea. "Highest" mountain would be everest

Six months later... Eder is 177 km long, how is that a major river? If you know about Eder, you surely must know about Elbe.

...and if you want to take it there, Echaz, Eder, Eider, Elbe, Elde, Else, Elz (Neckar), Elz (Rhine), Elzbach, Ems, Emscher, Ennepe, Enz, Enz (Prüm) and Erft should be all the rivers in Germany starting with the letter "E".

Only 25% got Elbrus? I understand there may be some confusion since it depends on where you consider the Asia-Europe border to be, but I would have thought at least 55% would get that.

While Amsterdam is generally accepted as the capital of the Netherlands, its legislature meets in Den Haag (The Hague), which makes Den Haag the seat of the government of the Netherlands. It is, therefore, not incorrect to say that the Netherlands has two capitals. Unlike Bolivia (Sucre/LaPaz) and South Africa (Capetown/Bloemfontein), the Netherlands doesn't publicize its two capitals, that doesn't mean that they don't exist.
