I was wondering that too but didn't find much on it. "The period from 141 to 10 B.C. saw an unusual amount of volcanic activity in Italy." But that would be contradictory. Maybe something happened in 142 B.C. that caused this?

I kept typing "Ulaanbaatar" and "Nur-Sultan" until I realized I had to type the country, not the coldest capital city :D

As an Iceland-ophile, I reject the premise of this quiz.
