I was racking my brain on the casino. As a computer programmer, I have done Monte Carlo simluations, but I couldn't think of the term. Then I remembered a verse from "Secrets Every Smart Traveler Should Know," a musical that I was in in college: "Well, good evening to you all. I'm the fellow people call the high-stakes gambler in the ship's casino. I have gambled everywhere. Yes, you name it, I've been there. Las Vegas, Tahoe, Monte Carlo, Reno." And I got it.

Fun quiz!

I knew that the Antarctic volcano and the tallest European mountain had similar names, and I managed the latter but just couldn't come up with the former. So close. On the plus side, I accidentally got the answer to one of the other questions while trying to guess the Antarctic one.

Also, thanks for the lenient spelling on the Indonesian volcano. I transposed a couple letters but lucky for me it was still accepted.

"Cascade volcano" is a bit US centric, I thought it's a type of volcano at first.

"Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain in the world, measuring 10,211 m (33,500 ft) in height" (wikipedia). Doesn't this invite for a more exciting question? ;-)

Would be interesting if you could mention Air New Zealand Flight 901 in the Mount Erebus question?

For example: Most active volcano in Antarctica and the sight of a major plane crash in 1979?

Great idea for a quiz, but it has a few issues.

1) A few more type ins for the likes of Monserrat and Mont Saint -Michel would be nice. Also, some consistency on whether we need to type the “M” word every time. I got Ararat without it, but not Thor.

2) That is very American centric. Virtually half the second column are questions on America.

Those of us non Americans on here are hardly going to know where two of your presidents where born. Can you tell me where any British PM, was born? Or a French/German President!?

Ditto some of the tallest mountains in various states, and to be fair, in San Marino etc. Too obscure.

Ohh and you could add Table Mountain in South Africa, it’s very well known.

Even considering how many quiz-takers aren't American, I am flat out shocked only 18% of users got Mount Elbert. Fewer people got it than people that got Mount Washington, Mount Rainier, Mauna Loa, and Mount Whitney. That is appalling.

It’s definitely not nearly as famous as any of the others. I’m American and before looking it up I couldn’t tell what state it was in.

Well it should be better known is my point, after all it's taller than all of the ones I mentioned except Mount Whitney. Plus phonetically it's *somewhat* similar to Elbrus.
