hm, this was tough considering I've mastered my own quiz on the same subject and still didn't get many of these... like, what about the Mayan Empire? and I think this is the first time I saw Venice mentioned as an empire, but, okay I guess.. :) I found the list on Wikipedia that it looks like you were using, and the weird thing is it's so different from another list also on Wikipedia that I used to make my quiz... though I notice that even on that list there have been some major changes since I made my own quiz. Guess it's hard to agree on some of these things like what exactly constitutes an empire, and which governments/dynasties should be grouped together under the same name, etc.

I was reluctant to put my list source on the quiz, but I used a convenient little list from howstuffworks. I don't always use Wikipedia ;).

Oh crap! You have a Longest lasting empires quiz too! That's weird, because I made sure to look up longest lasting empires to make sure that it was a new idea...

haha.. it happens. The search feature in the site is not the best. Sometimes I resort to using google to try and find quizzes on this site because google is actually better at finding quizzes on jetpunk than jetpunk is.

Anyway don't sweat it, as I pointed out our two quizzes are quite a bit different. I think it would be hard to come up with a definitive list that everyone could agree on.
