If the only reason you think Azerbaijan is in Europe is because it was part of the USSR before, then you will be misled due to outdated information. The current boundary has changed since then and is now along the Northern border of Azerbaijan, which means the country is in Asia. Here's another image to help clarify [LINK]. Azerbaijan is the dark blue intercontinental state, but clearly shown to be in Asia. Here's another article [LINK]. If you still don't trust Wikipedia, here's the CIA website for you. [LINK].
If you want to convince me or anyone else that Azerbaijan is in Europe, you have to do a better job than "It was in the USSR before".
So geographically speaking parts of Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and Kazakhstan are as European as Iceland. He isn't as wrong as you guys all make him out to be.
Azerbaijan is east of Georgia.
Actually I guess there's France, too, technically. And Spain sort of. Many others if you include overseas territories.
<>ALL borders are devised by men, some decisions were made easy by the presence of water (or in some cases, mountainranges *cough*caucasus*cough), but even that was not always a definitive border (newfoundland isnt, currently, its own country for example).
I dont get why people trip over this border and act like it isnt real or counts and they dont act the same way about country or state borders. Like those are projected from heaven by a laserbeam..
Also the reason people consider country and state/province boundaries to be so much more exact is that people feel they matter more. Like it's an organized international dispute rather than random people mostly not from those places arguing over them on the internet. It probably doesn't matter so much to those countries what continent they're in, just what organizations they're in.
This whole debate is quite sill because continents are subjective and could move depending on what it is you do. If you monitor earthquakes, for example, you'd probably use geological tectonic plates to view them, then just ditch that and use countries when announcing that to the public.
what I'm really saying is that
So yeah, that's my poorly worded argument
Eurasia is correct, the Sinai peninsula is in Egypt but is still transcontinental.
Who would have thought there were so many!!!
Considering there are 196 countries though, this actually isn't a lot. There's a reason I didn't make a "Countries with M" quiz. :P
Great quiz. Missed Venezuela!! Don't know how! And the Bosnia one.. Only because I never put the last part when I do the World quiz, it always just accepts Bosnia.
I'm sure I couldn't even get any on my colors ones, though. I just looked up most of those. xD

were to just re-map the world and put "Europe" where it rightfully belongs, in Asia? (or make Asia part of Europe; I don't care which,
as it puts an end to these interminable arguments).
also water is wet
Federated States of Micronezia
America is not a continent.
"Americas" is a collective term for North and South America.
