Gunshot still doesn't work. I'd go so far as to argue that "firing squad" is an embellishment. Not that I think that guy deserved freedom, but being taken out back and shot by a soldier (or maybe two, depending on the account), and then shot be several others after passing away is not "execution by firing squad."

Also, the fertility rate question has some problems. Check out any of these sources: Statista, World Population Review, World Bank, Eurostat, Statistic Times, even the CIA World factbook that is quoted in another comment has Japan lower than Romania (https://www.cia.gov/the-world-factbook/field/total-fertility-rate/country-comparison) as of the time of this comment (January 24 2021). Seeing as how the quiz is featured now, and this has been pointed out several times already as an inaccuracy, this should be addressed.

I tried a few variants on "shot" for Ceaucescu, quite certain that was right before giving up. In retrospect, firing squad does seem obvious, but I do feel "shot" should be accepted.

I tried Nadia right away hoping it might be accepted since that's the name we heard for weeks after the Olympics - they even changed the name of the Young and the Restless music to Nadia's Theme. It took me several tries before I finally got a spelling that was accepted for her surname. (I'm not complaining about all the coverage she received, I'm just making a case for the first name to be accepted here.) I'm so glad I was able to see her performance - she was perfection and deserved her scores..

Birth rates are often in 'children per woman', which would make the Vatican more balanced, although a quick search reveals there are 32 women with Vatican citizenship

There are women in the Vatican who are married to men who work there. Being devout Catholics, it is likely they have a very high fertility rate.

Fertility rate is the amount of children a woman, at birth, is expected to produce over her lifetime. No women are born in the Vatican. The Vatican's only maternity hospital is in Rome.

Why do you always have to write comments about the women of the countries you visited, Kal? They're not a tourist attraction (at least, they shouldn't be).
+2
Level 83

What difference does it make to you? Why are you offended by humans being attracted to other humans? Literally THE most natural, normal thing in the world. The entire reason that all of us exist and the one thing that our DNA has evolved toward reinforcing over billions of years. Seriously what could have left you so traumatized that you think this is something offensive or unseemly? And, while I am a nomad, not a tourist, there's also absolutely nothing wrong with going somewhere with the aim of meeting women (or men). For whatever reason you desire. Do you only travel to uninhabited places? What dreary, boring, anti-social holidays you must have. For me, I move around and travel for culture (created by people), food (made by people), history (left behind by people), museums (curated by people), and relationships both platonic and intimate (also with people). Sometimes for nature. But mostly I stick to populated areas, because I like interacting with the locals

@kalbahamut it can come across like that's the only thing you have to say about a country - nothing about the culture, history, food, atmosphere or people, only how physically attractive the women are.

while i understand that might not be your intention, after reading quite a few of these comments on country quizzes someone could get the impression you're overgeneralising or objectifying half the population of an entire country and making that your one verdict on the entire nation.

It only comes across that way to people who are themselves so perverse that they hyper-focus on this one thing. I notice this often. It doesn't matter how much or how often one mentions the other things. Whether it's the only thing you mention, or one among 100 things, 1) there's still nothing wrong with mentioning it, and 2) regardless, people will react negatively when you do, often ignoring everything else you said to express (ostensibly) their disgust and moral outrage, and (implicitly) their own internalized trauma at having their own nature shamed and stigmatized from birth onward.

The original comment is not overgeneralizing. Read it. It's not even a generalization. It's a statement of fact. An observation. If I say Paris is home to many of the best restaurants in France, this is not a generalization. It doesn't mean you can't find bad restaurants in Paris. I'm also not objectifying anyone or rendering verdicts on nations. You're using moralist clichés that don't apply.

I checked wikipedia "List of Sovereign States and Dependent Territories by Birth Rate" article. It lists 3 different authorities for national birthrates. Omitting dependent territories, and looking only at sovereign countries, according to the World Bank 2016 rankings, Romania is 18th lowest; according to OECD (2011), it is 11th; according to CIA World Factbook 2016, it is 16th. What is your source to claim only 4 countries have a lower birthrate? Among those listed in all 3 of the above ranked with lower birthrate than Romania are Taiwan, Japan, Italy, Serbia, Greece, Bosnia and Germany. Both the WB and CIA (2016), omitting OECD (which is older - 2011), the following countries are added: Monaco, South Korea, San Marino, Andorra, Croatia, Bulgaria and Singapore. It seems to me your accepted list is much too short. Perhaps you have a more recent list of rankings?

The birthrate question should allow Japan as an answer.

CIA Factbook (2021) puts Romania at 217/227, with the latter number being the lowest. That said, some of the entities in this list are not technically "countries." If we include only countries, then we get:

-Romania

-Japan (which is actually the most famous for low

birthrates)

-Bosnia and Herzegovina

-Singapore

-South Korea

-Taiwan (and I personally do feel very strongly that Taiwan is a country)

Thanks for the quiz!
