The mountains themselves are very tall; the tallest are almost 10,000 feet from base to height. They just have a disadvantage compared to others in this quiz because their bases are at or near sea level.

It might help you exclude some countries. For example, if you know that no mountain in the Alps has a height of more than 5000m, you wouldn't try countries like France or Italy. I guess that's why you get the heights in the first place.

It just doesn't make any difference. It's filling up space in the hints column. NOBODY here is visualizing what 29,000 feet looks like and saying "oh YEAH... of course Nepal. If you had said 10,000 meters I would have had a completely different picture in my head." If it's helpful at all it might simply be in comparing the relative heights of the countries and to that end using any standardized unit of measurement would work just fine. You could measure in inches, leagues, miles or parsecs and still see the same relative difference.

No, but we are not just here to win points and that's why it was fun in the first place to have the heights given here. If you are used to metric datas, that's just easier to consider what you read here if it's in meters. That's all.

I disagree that it's any easier at all. I can visualize 2 meters. I can visualize 6 feet. When you extend that to the thousands of feet or thousands of meters, the unit you are using becomes irrelevant.

I have difficulty on those quizzes that use kilometers when guessing closest cities, so I can see how this makes a difference for those who don't use feet for measuring height. Our medical industry already uses metric, I don't know why the rest of the country doesn't switch. Calculations are much easier. This is just my humble opinion, and I have no delusions it will ever happen - at least in my lifetime.

Feb 17, 2017
Sorry not buying it at all. The reason km and miles between cities makes a difference is because we're used to looking at maps and visually converting distances of inches or centimeters into miles or kilometers. *and* even if that weren't true, it *still* doesn't matter when what you are asking for is the highest 20 countries in the world. *How* high they are in a specific unit is irrelevant! They're still the highest. People are just whining to whine.

and for anyone out there who really has memorized the exact height in meters for every peak in the world (nobody commenting here I'd bet money)... then given their awesome head for numbers it should be quite simple to look at the height in feet, do a little bit of math, and figure out the lowest peak here is roughly 1/3 lower than the peak of Everest. If you know how high Everest is, then it's pretty simply to calculate and figure out the bottom threshold. If you don't know exactly how high Everest is, then, as stated before, the heights are irrelevant and wouldn't help you anyway.
