Not sure where we landed with Burma or Myanmar, but I've long been in the habit of the former being accepted on every jetpunk quiz.

We landed on Myanmar as official, with Burma being accepted. Seeing how in this case it's looking specifically for answers having to do with the "spelling," Burma doesn't make sense, since the answer that appears would be Myanmar... which obviously has more than 5 letters.

I entered Burma, also....it should be accepted. “The People’s Republic of China” is official, and that has 25 letters.

Agree, you are technically correct. Just like the grocery store signs "15 items or LESS" -- which is incorrect.

I changed it to fewer because it sounds better, but less isn't incorrect:

Oooo, Quizmaster, I gotta disagree with your interpretation. "Less" is acceptable due to common usage only.

When we talk about Asia, we're talking about continents. What continent do Oman and Yemen lie in? The Middle East can't be considered one; it's just a region. Therefore they are in Asia.

It's a kind of auto-suggestion: while trying to remember "small" sizes (few letters), you forget the "big" ones (huge countries) ;)
