WHY SHOULD A TOURIST RESORT 250 MILES FROM MARMARA SEA BE ACCEPTED? THEY'RE NOT THE SAME PLACE. DO YOU WANT MEDINA AS AN ACCEPTED ANSWER FOR MECCA? Maybe I'm being too harsh here. Sorry.

Madagascar should no doubt be accepted. In fact it's more right than Maldives because Maldives is a group of islands rather than one island nation.

The word should be "historic", not "historical". Splitting linguistic hairs, I know, but the meanings are indeed different.

I don't care if New Guinea belongs in Asia, Australia or Oceania or if Cyprus is part of Asia or Europe, but the Mariana Trench certainly isn't in Asia.

The Mariana trench is right next to Asia. It's on the edge of the Philippine sea! Are you saying we consider the Mariana trench to be in North America?

The Mariana Trench is in Oceania. Just because Oceania borders Asia does not make it part of Asia. Europe also border Asia; does that make Europe part of Asia?

I mean, that's a not the same thing because the border between "Europe" and "Asia," while theoretically geographical, is actually kind of made up. Eurasia is one big landmass. And also, he is questioning which continent one place is on instead of whether one whole continent is on another continent. It's more like debating whether Yekaterinburg is an Asia or Europe (although admittedly that's not a great comparison either.)

Actually, it's not so much a 'Club', and simply an informal conglomeration or free association, as it were, of like-minded and possibly similarly interested persons and/or individuals.
