I would have never guessed it either, but I remember seeing it on a "Most Prizes per capita " quiz.

Was surprised Liberia had two until I realised it was the one prize shared between two Liberians. I guess the source gives you countries with most laureates rather than most prizes.

It's so easy to look things up if you're really interested. I did. There is no doubt about the attribution to St. Lucia. That's all I'm gonna say.

I looked it up - Sir W. Arthur Lewis won for economics in 1979 - his influence was in economic development and expansion of university education in the Caribbean. Sir Derek Walcott won for literature in 1992. He wrote an epic poem about his travels.

Just a minor thing, but the headline for North America is cut in two, while all other headlines are only once the continents name.

Things are right in my editor but still the box is separated in live and in preview so I am not understanding the problem.See QM may fix this.

Funny one, can't help being curious though, about why people guess Saint Lucia more than Liberia...

Africa has more than twice as many countries than North America. So when you start guessing random countries for each continent, you'll get around to St. Lucia more quickly. That would be my guess. (Or, there's an unusually high number of people from St. Lucia on Jetpunk.)
