Well, yeah...with that attitude. Learning something new is always entertaining, and I was surprised by some of the answers to this quiz. Now I will go do some research to find out why. Bringing attention to these problems may lead to some answers. I'm not saying Jetpunk is single-handedly going to stop any wars, but you shouldn't doubt the power of the Quizmaster! ;)

Not everything has to be positive, we're just testing our knowkedge. However, I agree that using the ISIS symbol on the thumbnail is kind of crossing a line.

Looking at the numbers, I wonder if there has ever been, in recorded history, a three-year span with so few conflict deaths. There is a good chance that we are living in the most peaceful epoch in all of human history. (Knocks on wood).

Reports of conflict and crime are at all-time highs - we simply have more access to information than ever in history. So, there is an observational bias that makes it seem worse than ever.

I find this very interesting, but I would also suggest that quiztakers consider that these numbers likely do not tell the entire story. We can only be as accurate as the Wikipedia-aggregated data is, and it's quite likely that there are a lot of unreported conflict deaths- first thoughts go to Mali, Myanmar, China, Philippines, and the like.

I am not sure how they derive the Mexico numbers. Even though it's a horrible situation, I wouldn't consider them deaths due to conflict. There is no active international or armed civil insurrection between avowed political entities looking to destroy/support regimes. I think it would be better more correct to call the the deaths criminal.

Gang warfare in Mexico isn't really gangbangers killing each other in drive-bys. It's more like private armies fighting each other and the government.

The inclusion of Mexico seems odd to me, too. Corrode has a point; the violence there between the drug cartels and the government is on a whole different level than most places. Even when the FBI went to war against the KKK and the Mafia it didn't really compare. But... it's still in my mind not the same thing as a civil war. These aren't separatists or invaders or sectarian factions attempting to overthrow the government. They are criminals. Extremely powerful well-armed criminals that the government in Mexico may not be competent enough to deal with effectively, but criminals nonetheless. Do they count shoot outs between drug dealers and cops as conflict deaths in other countries?

No, I don't wonder at all. It's because he is a racist, ignorant simpleton who doesn't understand or know anything and whose best attempt at pandering to nativist xenophobes in his own party is to offer up a ridiculous child's solution to a complex issue. I thought that much was clear.

Besides the reasons offered by Kalbahamut - from a logical and financial standpoint, when has building a wall ever been a permanent solution to any problem in history: The Great Wall, Hadrian's Wall, walled cities, Atlantic Wall, Maginot Line or the Berlin Wall (which became nothing more than a symbol for oppression and hate)? Ultimately none of them achieved the desired outcome. Is there a wall cycle where someone makes the same mistake of thinking it will be a cure all every century or so? I'm sincerely asking a group of intelligent people is the wall a good idea or is it treating a symptom and not the cause?

There have been walls in history that served a purpose effectively. But if the one that Trump talked about building on the border was supposed to be to stop an invasion by Mexican drug cartels that's a $70 billion solution to a problem that doesn't exist that wouldn't work anyway.

Why not consider making Multiplayer board games like tic tac toe connect 4 etc, at the home page can there be an option saying Online Quizzes, underneath can it say 'Multiplayer' in each jetpunk language. Also can there be more badges, like the European badge Asian badge African badge Oceanian Badge North American Badge South American Badge, and the United States badge the Soccer badge and lots of other sport badges. On the ranking charts can you make top 500.
