Lake Como is where George Clooney spends much of his time. Also, remember it because it is almost spelled the same way as the present and former governors of New York: Cuomo.

I must admit I tried it, but then realised, ow yea wasnt there a theme here.... ah yes, europe. (easy to forget when most of the answers would be the same regardless of the quiztitle. But well, once chad isnt accepted, it should really ring a bell (ok tried CAR too hahah, was faster than trying to remember did I typ it correctly,could the be another reason why chad wasnt accepted. But after typing CAR I was, like ow yea)

Usually, or something similar. On almost all of these themed quizzes I ve seen atleast one comment, "ow I forgot it was capitals/had to start with" etc. Forgetting it during a quiz is one thing, but leaving an angry comment about it is just silly.

Especially the complaints for letter quizzes about something with starting another letter not being accepted. The slip between just countries/capitals europe or worldwide is easily made (but again, if you don't realizing during or after a quiz, you should really make a habit out of checking your comment before posting (people should anyway) "Is this a silly comment? could there be anything in here that is obviously incorrect or totally ungrounded. Am I being fair?"

This goes for all comments, also what quite a few people seem to have difficulties with "Am I being rude, is my tone appropriate?"

But in this case it makes a totally different sound, it would make it kernobyl or sernobyl, so I get why it wouldnt be accepted.

The mountains that are commonly accepted as the division between Europe and Asia are the Urals (googling it gives the Urals as the result). I believe the Caucausus clue could be different, such as "Mountain range after which a branch of the human race is named". Enjoyable quiz nonethless, perhaps others don't agree with my remark but that's fine.

Both the Urals and the Caucasus separate Europe and Asia.

By the way, Google "instant answers" are a trainwreck of misinformation.

I think you should change the wording on the Chernobyl question, since Chernobyl was the name of the nuclear plant, whereas Pripyat was the name of the city. Really good quiz otherwise!

Pripyat is closer to the nuclear plant, but the plant was named for the also nearby Chernobyl city, which is also a ghost town after the disaster.

Technically, yes, but Chernobyl is hardly a ghost city. More like a ghost town or village. So still, the wording is... off

I wouldn't have thought Cork was south west Ireland given that it's on the east coast. I get that it is quite a way west of the most easterly point of Ireland but even then if you look at an east west continuim is pretty central

East coast what?? They aren't talking about Dublin or something. It is clearly on the south coast (and yes, west of the center but not sure adding west to it is necessary). County Wexford is on the southeast corner, anything above that is eastcoast, anything to the left is southcoast.

Would you say Dublin is on the northcoast then?? And Galway on the south?

Boggled how you can think Cork is in the east of Ireland

Maybe this makes it easier for you if you cut ireland into 4 quarters, so 2 straight lines through the center, Cork is definitely in the southwest part.

(And not something crazy like northeast unless you stand on your head.). I am trying to think if there is any other city you might be confused with, but really can't come up with anything.

I don't think he was confusing it with anything, he just did't count Wexford for division between east and south coast but rather continued the east coast all the way down to around Skibbereen an only divided between east and west coast. It is wrong, but at least there is a logic in there.

Accepted for what question? Landlocked country (not a country, an exclave), subdivision of Switzerland (not what "subdivision" means) or italian lake (not a lake, it's a city)?
