I was stumped by the Celtic Nations, until I realised that I'd already typed in Scotland and Wales, and that these are not nations by the usual Jetpunk rules. So I was able to get them all in the end. What they are are distinct regions which have (or had - Cornish and Manx are dead) a distinct Celtic language.

Nov 21, 2014
They are not sovereign states, but then again, neither are Scotland, Wales, the isle of Man (really? you objected to the other two but not this one??). By that logic, the only "celtic nation" would be Ireland.
+2
level 67
Nov 21, 2014
They are nations and members of the Celtic League; they are not independent countries. They're tied by having Celtic languages and cultures (Breton is closer to Welsh than it is to French).

Breton and Welsh are very similar and so is Cornish; I am Welsh and can read and understand Breton and Cornish.

Surely the CN Tower in Toronto should be added to the 'tallest buildings' section?
+1
level 73
Nov 21, 2014
depends on how you define building. It was the world's tallest free-standing structure when it was completed, but usually not counted on lists of tallest buildings.
+1
level 65
Feb 5, 2016
I guessed CN tower as well. The definitions for tallest building always seemed to be a bit unclear to me. is it not a building because there are no lower floors? it's basically just an elevator all the way up to the the observation area and the restaurant and all that stuff. that's the only thing I can think of that would create a distinction
+1
level 73
Sep 21, 2017
From Wikipedia: "only buildings with continuously occupiable floors are included, thus non-building structures, including towers, are not included."

The main reason for this distinction, I think, is that if you include all structures then, for a long time, the tallest "building" in the world would have been various radio masts and towers. Though the Burj Khalifa is now currently taller than any of them. Going back into history there are many other structures that were at one time the world's tallest but yet are not always considered buildings. You've got various cathedrals, the Eiffel Tower, the Washington Monument, and the great pyramids of Giza.

Ashamed I only got 2 capitals starting with R. Forgot about all the European ones. Duh! -- Also for Wall Trade Center, I tried both Freedom Tower (okay, I see, different building), but why not Wall Street 1 as an acceptable answer or just "Wall Street" ?
+1
level 67
Nov 21, 2014
Because 1 WTC was not on Wall Street, and neither is the Freedom Tower. The WTC site was bounded by the Vesey, Church, Liberty and West streets (the latter being the West Side Highway). Wall Street is four blocks away, which is a big distance in Manhattan.

Nov 21, 2014
Why would anyone feel the need to say that? The question isn't what the top 6 tallest buildings in the world are, it's what were the last 6 buildings in history to hold the title of "world's tallest." If we were talking about the current tallest then only the Burj Khalifa and Taipei 101 would make the list. (if including buildings that have been destroyed and counting spires as part of the height of the building, then Taipei 101 would be off and the old WTC would be on)

Why is the Tokyo Skytree not on this list? I thought it was the 2nd largest standing skyscraper? It's certainly taller than 5/6 buildings on this list... Guess we need a more clearly defined criteria here if you aren't going to accept it...

It's buildings that have (fairly) recently been the world's tallest. Not necessarily the tallest 6 in the world currently. Plus the Skytree is a tower, not a building

+1
level 59
Sep 26, 2017
They had significant Celtic populations before Roman conquests and "all" Brittany Celts are descendants of Celts from ~Galicia (DNA-evidence has proved these peoples emigrated around 5000BC, prior to Celts also spreading around western continental Europe, and even central Europe). However, even though a lot of the Celtic culture has survived in Galicia (and Asturia), the Celtic language has not.

But that's not one of the answers. One World Trade Center (or Freedom Tower) is the building that was built to replace the World Trade Center. The latter was at one point the tallest building in the world, while the former was not.
+1
level 73
Jun 4, 2018
The original World Trade Center was a complex consisting of seven buildings, including the twin towers which were 1 WTC and 2 WTC, and they were the tallest buildings in the world at the time. There was never a single building called "The World Trade Center", only the complex. I tried Tower 1 and I can understand it not being accepted, but 1 WTC should be. The new building is named the same thing as the original north tower which was destroyed. The answer given in the quiz isn't really correct without a number before it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Trade_Center_(1973%E2%80%932001)

Please accept "Twin Towers" for the World Trade Center clue. New Yorkers exclusively referred to the buildings by that term. "World Trade Center" is the term for the entire building complex (which I believe had seven buildings). The North and South Tower were by far the most notable buildings of the Trade Center, so some people think they were the World Trade Center itself, but that's not correct. They were just part of it.

The quiz is correct. The Northern Territory is not a state of Australia. It is a territory (hence the name). It's Administration has certain powers but they fall well short of the law-making powers enjoyed by the states. From Wikipedia: "Under the Australian Constitution, the Commonwealth has full legislative power, if it chooses to exercise it, over the Northern Territory, and has devolved self-government to the Territory. The Northern Territory legislature does not have the legislative independence of the Australian states but has power in all matters not in conflict with the Constitution and applicable Commonwealth laws, but subject to a Commonwealth veto."
