It's not a speed typing challenge. This quiz is to show how well you know the countries in Southeast Asia and a timer doesn't reveal this.

I think that shortening the time wouldn't really make a difference that much. I mean, everything is already over 90%, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks that's a bit much.

Jiaozira: agreed. Geography nerds are going to kill it every time on Jetpunk regardless :) It's nice to give slow typists and us meditative folks time to gather our wits :P

If you are lucky enough to type quickly, then when you complete the quiz the quiz is over and shows the time you have left. What benefit would it be to have less time? ..... surely there are people that for one reason or another cannot type so quickly. Maybe some quick typists just want to stop disadvantaged people from having enough time to finish the quiz........ pretty selfish I think.

But now that Southeast Asia has fallen into sea, how do we draw the border between the Indian and Pacific oceans? Or do we give up altogether and decide that Australia is a continent in the middle of the Indo-Pacific ocean?

Unfortunately to science committee's budget has collapsed due to corruption and scientists do not have adequate funds to determine this anymore. That's why it's up to you to bring these countries back.

Fun and easy. Never realized (until I zoomed-in) that both Brunei and Timor Leste had such an "accidental" border shape for such small countries (i.e. Timore Leste composed of 2 distinct and non contiguous piece of territories within Indonesia). Cheers!

East Timor is often categorized as being part of the continent Australia or Oceania, not Asia. Also, Myanmar is usually categorized as South Asia.

Not really... at least according to this Wikipedia article. Myanmar is also an ASEAN member. Myanmar and Timor-Leste are culturally and politically tied to Southeast Asia and are almost always considered Southeast Asian countries. Timor-Leste's situation is a little unique, especially its relation with Indonesia, but that doesn't mean it is in Oceania.

No I didn't mean politically but rather relating to continental shelves and biogeography. The continent of Australia (and by extension the larger Oceania as well) is often said to encompass the island of Timor (and hence East Timor), and also some (other) Indonesian islands such as Lombok and even Sulawesi (and of course New Guinea). Look up Lydekker, Weber and Wallace lines as well as plate tectonics and continental shelf maps. Here are some nice ones to look at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indo-Australian_Plate#/media/File:Tectonic_plates_boundaries_detailed-en.svg and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia_(continent)#/media/File:Australia_New_Guinea_continent.jpg (Yes, Timor is questionable, but it is often categorized as being part of the Australian plate).

As for Myanmar, some scholars include it in South Asia and some in Southeast Asia. Just as some include Afghanistan in South Asia, some in Central Asia and some even in the Middle East (or, in the loose term Greater Middle East). None of these are clearly defined or agreed upon.

What you said is right also. I'm no expert in this, only on Jetpunk East Timor is grouped into Asia. As for Myanmar it is usually Southeast Asia based on culture, history and politics. I do think it is somewhat arbitrary which region we put these countries in, so I get why it might be better from a geological viewpoint. However I generally follow Jetpunk standards.

I'm all for following standards (unless those standards are in clear violation of my values, which is not the case here..). But historically (colonial such) Myanmar should belong in the British India grouping, as it was a British colony together with the other South Asian countries for about a century. Politics, well, I would say a military junta is always its own beast (and I would not say it bears that much resemblance to the political landscape of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia or Vietnam). The general area is so culturally diverse and interlaced you can't really say where South Asia ends and South East Asia begins. Linguistically the Burmese belong in neither grouping, but rather in the Sino-Tibetan family. Myanmar of course shares the spiritual teachings of Theravada Buddhism with Thailand, Cambodia and Laos (and the related Mahayana Buddhism in Vietnam), but Buddhism is originally from India, and on both sides of this Buddhist area there are lots of Sunni Muslims.

Nope, the timor island is geographically part of asia. why people here will not try to search/research first before they comment about something.

May I just say that Cambodia looks very nice if it's just alone? Nice shape, almost like it's an "expansion pack" for the mainland.
