Hard to make out any actual city in the Cape Town photo. Fortunately the mountain is recognisable.

I presume that's the whole point, since it's by far the most recognizable land mark of the city.

How in the world is a random photo of pandas supposed to point to a particular city? I got it, but just by randomly guessing Chinese cities starting with C.

Chengdu is home to the Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. A third of all captive pandas live there.

That one totally stumped me. There must be better, or easier to manage, "C" clues than that. Cairns, Cairo, or Cologne if you want cities. Chesapeake Bay, Cape Cod, Carpathian/Cascade Mountains, a Caldera or Cordillera if you want a really tricky one.

I'm with samiamco; didn't know why Chengdu specifically meant pandas. I do now, and given it's at 28%, it's tricky yes, but nowhere near impossible

People dont need to do anything..

But I dont mind if it is a tricky one, as long as the clue is sensible and I find that is is in this case even if I didnt know it. Better than generic photos of stuff ( usually city views) which could be anywhere in theory with nothing discernable on it. Like just a bunch of skyscraper (all non specific, as the gurkin in london for instance, or the empire state building those are well recognisable an not just another millionth skyscraper..)

Yeah. Chitzen Itza is such a common spelling that Wikipedia even has a re-direct from there to Chichen Itza. Would be nice to accept the alternative spelling :)

Yay! Way to represent Canada! We got in with a whole two questions! :-D I like the Chengdu question. It's tough because people don't generally know much about China, but it's very fair, with Chengdu being the panda capital of the world.

It's a city-->Pandas = China-->Just start naming Chinese cities that start with 'C'. I can almost guarantee the correct answer will be either the first or second one you try.

Don't know any cities in China that start with 'C'? Then you probably shouldn't expect to get 100% on a world geography quiz.

Ah, Justin Trudeau. As someone from Canada I've noticed there seems to be a popular myth in other countries that he's a good prime minister but I assure you he's not and is more concerned with photoshoots half the time. He's steals tax dollars for his personal vacations and for his kids nannies, does little for job creation, funds demonstrations against pipelines which in turn hurts our economy, told a women to say "peoplekind" instead of mankind, and advised against sexual assault against women before it was discovered that he himself sexually assaulted a woman. He paid millions to a convicted terrorist, discriminates against religious groups who are against LGBTQ and abortion yet funds a Muslim anti Israeli hate group, calls himself a feminist when femenist groups have accused him of being an imposter, buys votes through over immigration and the resulting welfare increase is draining us, and he's burying us in debt. Honestly he's probably even more disliked in Canada than Trump.

I didn't say Trump wasn't disliked in Canada, just that Trudeau is disliked even more here. Sure Trump's tariffs affect us among other things but Trudeau obviously has a much more significant impact on the country.

I actually think Heliopixie's comment is perfect. There's no debate possible with single-minded people like you. Better save the more-than-two-word-comments for something else.

TheCrusher, single minded and people like me? Why because I have a different view than you do? If so that would make you a bigot, otherwise explain your point or you have no credibility either. Your comment is arrogant and ignorant. These aren't just things that I made up, they're on the news. Perhaps you like Trudeau and are intolerant of those who think otherwise.

A lot of people are not satisfied with his politics but come on, Trudeau is not even close to being a quarter as hated as Trump is. Almost every single person I know loathes Trump with a passion, while they are mostly annoyed or at worst, somewhat angry, at Trudeau. And I say this as a fellow Canadian.

If you look at people's comments on various news stories about Trudeau you'll see that usually the majority of comments are against him. He screws up constantly.

All too true, though I fear too many folks in Canada don't dislike "Trudes" as much as you say. I fear that too many have been taken in, and joined his cult of personality, based on hollow charisma and "good looks." Say what you will about his father, but at least Pierre Trudeau was a real leader, even if us Westerners have some negative thoughts about him. Can you imagine if the FLQ Crisis happened today? JT would probably start crying and ask everyone to hold hands while he molly-coddled the terrorists and blamed society for their criminal acts. Sorry for the rant, haha.

Ya he's weak and actually I would disagree if you look at various polls, it's been all over the news that he's lost an immense amount of support from when he was elected. I was worried about that at first too but Quebec is so unsatisisfied with him that the conservative party won a seat there they haven't won in over 50 years and even a lot of people in Ontario are sick of him too.

Quite the rant. He's not more disliked than Trump. In fact he's probably more popular than the Conservative leader, Scheer. Yes he 's a hypocrite and I would never vote for him but for many Canadians he's better than the alternative.

Jul 8, 2018
I got them both. :P Probably helped that I've been to Christiania but it's fairly famous, I think my anarchist intersectional feminist friend told me about it before I went there; meanwhile I've never been to mainland China but knew about Chengdu's connection to the giant panda. Just because you don't know something doesn't mean it's impossible to know. Though it's refreshing for once to see these complaints aimed at some place other than the United States.

I think most people just started naming cities with a c. And copenhagen is one of the more known ones, as for the other ones, it is clear a china one is needed, so if you know a few chinese cities you do not even need to know the connection of the specific city with pandas.

lol just realized I got "Christiania" for the wrong reason. I remembered that one of the Scandinavian capitals was formerly called "Christiania," and since Copenhagen is the only one that starts with 'C,' that's what I guessed. But nope! It's Oslo.

level 68
Jul 9, 2018
That's what I was thinking too - some connection with Scandinavia. But that would have been spelled 'Kristiania' anyway, and since Oslo doesn't start with a 'C', I thought it must be the other big city in Scandinavia.
