Really enjoyed the cluing on this quiz. Twice the tallest building was nicely phrased; One of the seven continents is a nice way to prevent arguments about Eurasia, etc. One I had the hardest time with was the line from Richard 2... couldn't come up with a name starting with E for Great Britain. < / fail>

I'm somewhat disturbed that more people get "Evergreen Terrace" and "Endor" than get "England"....

The England one is a weird clue. Sounded like a trick question, so of course I missed one of the most obvious ones. Not hard to believe.

Not really a trick. It's a famous Shakespeare quote from Richard II.

Silly Shakespeare didn't know that England wasn't an island but shared an island with Wales and Scotland.

But it's still an island though, even if shared.

England is ON an island, but the island itself is Great Britain. Just like how New Guinea is an island, but Papua New Guinea is a country (thankfully the geography quizzes are very forgiving of that one though).

I had no idea what the clue meant. However, I didn't get "Evergeen Terrace" or "Endor", either :(

I must be tired. I thought on the tall building question you were asking for some type of measurement equal to twice the height of the tallest building in NYC. I totally blanked out on any word beginning with an e connected to height. It's time for bed. (But I would have gotten it if you'd asked, "Once the tallest building in NYC," or something of that nature.)

I just took the quiz again and did the same thing, wondering what could be twice the height of the tallest building in NYC. And I'm not tired, so it's just a glitch in my brain. I was confused by the Shakespeare quote, too. That's not a glitch, that's just ignorance of Shakespeare.

Everest is not a mountain. The mountains there are Himalayas. I already mentioned this in many quizzes.

Then you've been a dork in many quizzes. We obviously don't parse words well enough for you.

Everest is a mountain (hence it being called Mount Everest). The Himalayas are the mountain RANGE, but Everest is a mountain. By definition a mountain is: "a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak." So yes, Everest is a mountain, and it is in the Mahalangur section of Himalayan mountain range.

Erebor - the Lonely Mountain in Middle-Earth. The hobbit Bilbo Baggins and Thorin's company travelled there to reclaim the treasure stolen by Smaug. I know this as I live in Middle-Earth.
