It's actually not completely uninteresting, because not everyone counts continents the same way. In much of Europe, for instance, we consider North and South America to form a single continent: America.

level 65
Dec 14, 2015
I believe it was a sarcastic comment... Being a proud European myself I have never come across counting two Americas as one continent
+1
level 69
Dec 14, 2015
I have heard of that, and there's also a distinction between North, Central, and South America. But I think North and South are used most often (and make most sense).
+2
level 44
Dec 14, 2015
Which country are you from? I've never heard of that, we call them The Americas sometimes, but I've never heard The Americas be called a continent itself.

level 65
Aug 23, 2016
I'm not being sarcastic. In both France and Germany, America is considered to be one continent made up of two parts. I'm pretty sure that's also the case in Italy, and several other, if not most, European countries.

level 60
Apr 29, 2017
What? This makes no sense. North and South America are barely even connected. If any traditional continents should be considered as one, it is Asia and Europe.
+2
level 43
Apr 29, 2017
Agreed with @jd2001wizard that North and South America are barely connected. By that logic Africa and the Middle East are joined by Sinai in Egypt, so therefore Africa and Asia are one continent. In fact Europe is also joined to Asia, so in fact it is all one continent. It's ridiculous.

level 67
Jan 25, 2018
The original definition of continent (from greek ἤπειρος), was as much about historical ties, geopolitics and cultural background than geography. For instance, most classical Greek authors included Egypt in Asia (with Africa starting in the actual Libya). From this perspective, it makes sense to consider America a single continent, and that's why it is taught that way in many European countries.
+2
level 67
Jan 25, 2018
Of course, if you want to restrict the definition to geography, then America has to be separated in two continents. But still in this case any definition has to be arbitrary, since there's no geographical argument that justifies making Europe a continent and not India.

well, Europeans shouldn't have any problem differentiating north and south, right?
+2
level 69
Jan 13, 2016
No, they just sometimes think of America as one whole continent, and I don't know, maybe it's not just Europeans. The most common way is to count North and South separately and therefore, this quiz is right to do so, but there is no naturally objective method. I don't want to start one of those silly arguments between Americans and Europeans or Anglo-Saxons and the rest of the world or whatever... Just to proof that dunkinggandalf was not (completely) joking.
+1

Oh, ok. I visited my cousins in England and they say North and South America, so I wasn't really sure. I heard in Colombia it's taught dunkingandalf's way.

Just to be clear: I'm not criticising the quiz, or saying it's wrong or should be changed. I just thought some people might be interested to know that continents are not counted the same way everywhere.
+1
level 57
Sep 3, 2016
No, people actually do learn them that way. I've always thought that was kind of strange, because North and South America are two very distinct landmasses despite being connected by Central America, while Europe and Asia aren't considered the same continent anywhere despite not really being separate landmasses.

They should remove the comments feature so people can stop complaining and criticising and slagging other people off. Quizzes are meant to be fun, whether they're easy or difficult.

I agree with The New Potato, the comments section is often brilliant. And if the comments section was removed then where would Jetpunk be now? There would be no funny stuff and no-one would know each other and it would make Jetpunk just another quiz website with good quizzes but just a dull, machine-like feel about it. Nothing needs to be changed. The site is perfect as it is.

I don't say that it is bad. But points should reflect not only how well you do on a quiz, but how tough the quiz is as well. It gets a bit ridiculous to give 5 points, which you usually have to work hard to earn, on a quiz like this one where everyone is being basically gifted the full 5.

So if we go by the definition of a continent being a large, continuous, discrete masses of land, ideally separated by expanses of water, there are only 3 continents: America, Afro-Eurasia and Oceania. America being North and South america combined. Antarctica is technically an archipelago covered in a giant sheet of semi-permanent ice. Africa, Europe and Asia are one landmass and then there's Oceania, the continent of misfit islands.
