We might do a Belgium version of this next, but there is a problem. According to the Quizmaster, all the countries beat Belgium, so the quiz would be too easy...

Hmm, is there a country with a more famous urinating statue? In its capital? I know: democratic countries which have taken longer to form an executive government after an election? There must be some of those, damned if I can think of one, though the UK did try to function without recently.

Lol, the source of cycling capital is ridiculous and biased. It's name speaks for it self "The 2019 Copenhagenize Index". The Dutch bike infrastructure is the best in the world and if this index was honest the top 20 would only be Dutch cities. It is better to ignore these kind of faulty investigations who are mainly made to get tourists to a certain place and since it is called Copenhagenize Index you know now why Copenhagen is number one.

Of the capital cities I have personally visited I found Stockholm to be the most annoyingly bike-friendly (and motorist hostile) of all of them.

I have been to both Copenhagen and Amsterdam, and I personally think that Copenhagen might actually be more bike-friendly

Amsterdam is not the whole Netherlands, maybe the rest of the country has way better infrastructure than Denmark, too soon to judge

Yeah, I'd have to say the answer is controversial and from a biased source.

That was not easy. The cheese took too many guesses! Then I remembered new zealand.

Some of these are quite surprising (or astounding). Like the densest road netwerk, it makes sense, but still only beaten by belgium and minute states. Also the GDP, only beaten by two. The density is sort of one, but it is a well known fact, so not so surprising anymore.

I didnt know china reaclaimed that much land from the sea, had no idea about that one.

PS thanx for accepting copenhagen for denmark :) (ofcourse I would ve tried denmark immediately afterwards, but I had typed copenhagen before I knew it, and it would ve cost me time otherwise)

Maybe a fun one to ask is tallest people, or is the Netherlands and nr 1. Hard to find a good source on that one though. Methodology differs an moment of measurent etc. I think I have seen many articles that lists them as nr 1 but also some that do not.

But well, with most of these things it is pick a source and stick with it. (often one study shows one thing and another something else, especially on things like how religious is a country, if the answers are selfreported, how they interpret "how important is religion to you" varies enormously..)

You'll never find a featured quiz on "tallest people" because the data is all garbage. Netherlands probably has the tallest people but we'll never know for sure. Apparently, there are tall people in parts of the Balkans as well.

That was my point, so much contradicting data and all different methods. But my other point was if you say according to "particular study" there won't be any contradiction. Sort of like greatest hits according to this or that music magazine.

and apparently, someone has just taken the challenge and created the quiz tallest people ;)

I think the question "Capital city with the lowest elevation" is slightly confusing as to whether you are looking for a country or a capital city.

Disagree. The quiz is looking for countries that rank higher, not cities. Also, Baku is accepted.

Yeah, much much tougher than the others. A lot of the questions have lots of potential answers which means if you are guessing, as I was quite often, you are snookered.

Amsterdam not being the most bike-friendly capital is the biggest joke of this quiz. In Amsterdam you have special bike roads where cars are guests. Watch this video for a full comparison of bike infrastructure between Copenhagen and Amsterdam.

They literally have the same thing in Copenhagen. It's not that uncommon and can also be found in Stockholm and Tallinn for example.
