Good quiz, quite tricky but I only missed Brunei.

Are you sure Mexico is accurate there? I feel like that line would hit Alaska. (I didn't do any actual research on this, just looking at a map and visualizing a straight line between Japan and Philippines)

Perhaps I should have been clearer in terms of what the question means. If you kept on travelling at 46 degrees (and kept on slowly changing direction while moved to maintain the 46 angle) you wouldn't reach Mexico. However if you left KL at a bearing of 46 degrees and kept on walking in a straight line, you would stop travelling at 46 degrees but you end up in Mexico. The quiz is based on the initial bearing rather than your continuous direction

Is that the same as a great circle? And the same as the line that comes when you measure distance on Google Maps?

Please add the word 'you' between 'would' and 'reach' in the description.
