Good quiz. Anything that helps jetpunkers learn more about the Third World has to be good.

Obama was born in the Kenyan embassy in Honolulu, so he was born in both Kenya and the United States.

Lions aren't things or inanimate objects, it looks really weird to me. I was thinking along the lines of earthquake, flood etc so the answer being a living being instead of a thing or a concept surprised me.

It would already look better if it was phrased as "what were they killed by"

The key words in the question are "Tsavo river" anyway. If you heard about the lions before that should ring a bell. If you haven't you simply didn't know the answer and it's okay to not know every answer in every quiz.

It's always fun to take a quiz like this, read up on a story about Tsavo bridge and realize that 'The Ghost and the Darkness' with Val Kilmer was based on that story.
