Fiji Water's not from Ohio. Their advertising slogan was, "The label says Fiji because it's not bottled in Cleveland." Cleveland wasn't happy about that and compared their tap water with Fiji water and discovered that Fiji water contained arsenic, (within FDA limits) but Cleveland's tap water contained none.

madagascar is the most obvious one to me. Then a tie between egypt and south africa. next would be morocco and dont know what I would ve choosen as 5th. But for the quiz I indeed guessed niger cause that seemed statistically probably (twice the chance because of nigeria and I think people (with a limitied amount of knowledge about africa) would type nigeria before congo, which obviously also has double the chance). Anyway no guesses needed.

I DID need em for asia.... I reallly couldnt think of what could be above japan... Other had no misses either, besides trying samoa on oceania (after having micronesia fiji and new guinea, but didnt think of new zealand and australia yet)

A bit confusing as I thought there are only 3 countries in north America. I assume the central Americans were lumped in with the north.

Central America is part of North America, as are all the nations in the Caribbean. "Central America" is not a continent.

it is not indeed, but I think we also used to learn at school north south and central america separately (though I dont believe we were ever told central america was its own continent).

I was about to correct you and say that it is spelled "Columbia" only to google it and find out that the opposite is true! Columbia is the incorrect but widely used spelling of the South American country in the United States. Who knew?
+1
level 48
May 24, 2017
I've never heard that. "Columbia" was the general term used in the U.S. for the new lands opened up to European settlement by Columbus's voyage. So, for example, the song "Hail, Columbia" was a very popular U.S. patriotic song, and kind of an unofficial anthem for the country for over a hundred years. Colombia has always been Colombia.

qcumber, the name of the country is definitely colOmbia anything else is just people spelling it wrong. There are places in the US that áre called columbia which might confuse some people. But that does not change the correct name or spelling of the country colombia.

@ala02 if they use colombia they are mistaken, because in american english it is still colombia, no country by the name of columbia exists.

Surely because of foreign languages? For example in french, we say "Iran" too but "Irak" instead of "Iraq". It could explain the % difference.
