Finally acing the 200 biggest cities of the world quiz certainly helps with all the others. 15/15 .. the world one would be cool with a map, although it'd be a massive undertaking to make.

I don't think of it concise as I do this top 15 one. If I were to make anything of that it would be 30 largest, 45 largest, e.g. :)

I'm gonna be honest; I did way worse on this one compared to all of the other continents, which reminds me to touch up on my African, SE Asian, and Pakistani geography.
