The earth is really top-heavy. There are no more of these large cities farther South than 38.00o degrees. ........ Athens is 38.00o degrees North, yet look at all the cities of over a 1,000,000 North of Athens.

That's because to the south of 38.00S is predominantly ocean, whereas to the north of 38.00N is mainly land.

The fact that the last two World Cups were held in Brazil and South Africa helped me a lot here.

I got all of them except Santos. I've been to Santos! I didn't realize it had more than a million people... So pissed, lol

It doesn't, actually. The quiz uses urban area population, not city proper population. If we don't count the surrounding cities, Santos has circa 420,000 people only.

Unless you're from Australia or East Asia, there's no real reason to travel to New Zealand.

There are plenty of reasons to visit NZ, regardless of where you're from. Having travelled to every inhabited continent but Africa, I think I have a fair if not exhaustive idea of what the world has to offer, and I can honestly say New Zealand is one of my favourite countries. There really aren’t many places as consistently beautiful anywhere. Plus all its varied beauty is wonderfully concentrated – pristine temperate rainforest, explosive geysers, alpine lakes fed by glaciers and epic expanses of sandy beach are often right next to each other. And that’s to say nothing of its vineyards, cheeses and other delicious produce, charming towns and fascinating Maori history and culture.

Florianopolis? The quiz rules do say urban area population...

The source jetpunk tends to use (citypopulation.de) usually goes by urban aglomeration populations. So even though FLORIPA has more than 1 million people on its metropolitan area, the source caps only the population inside the island, because it's separated from the rest by oceanic water.
