Not one to complain nor sympathize with the U.S.- or Anglo-centric complainers, but Drake is a little less important in the early circumnavigators club. William Adams was a far more fascinating early Briton in the Far East.

Damn baseball questions, getting between me and a perfect score.

Aug 26, 2018
Snap. I got 29 pretty much straight off, but baseball is a near complete unknown in Britain, in fact in most countries outside North America, so my chances of knowing that (pretty obscure) answer were approximately nil. I do hate baseball questions in these quizzes. I appreciate this is an American site but it is a sport hat has no profile outside of North America so a baseball question basically equals the majority or non North Americans not getting it. It does get monotonous the regularity with which it happens

Notice how many people you see here complaining about the Camp Nou question?

But compare that to Americans. It‘s an established fact that they don‘t know anything about the rest of the world, so they will fail at half of the questions here.

It's about 3-1, North America versus the rest of the native English speaking world, so not "most" are outside North America.

That was long the correct spelling, i.e., the one that matches the way everyone's gonna pronounce it anyway. It was the spelling in 1950, still should be.
