Cool quiz but I was steaming right along... got 58 correct with almost no guessing and then I ran out of time right around the tallest building/mountains part.

I also got Mr. "Kaching" (appropriate name, never heard of him) when I was trying to type in Libya.

Finally, there are so many great schools in the USA, how did you determine that MIT was #1? I often see Harvard, Yale, Princeton or Stanford ranked above MIT. Occasionally others, too. And Oxford is frequently ranked higher than Cambridge. I was confused about that category because Cape Town came up, then Sao Paulo when I was still on other categories, so I thought you were looking for cities not University names. I then got Cambridge because I was guessing Cambridge, Massachusetts. Wasted some time guessing New Haven, Boston, Palo Alto, and then ran out of time.

I think if you know all or a large majority of the answers right off the top of your head like I do then you ought to at least be able to get to the end of the quiz without running out of time... I would increase the time limit by somwhere to the tune of 50-100%

Well I got the universities from the QS Rankings. Will something like 10 minutes should be enough?

Just so you know, Bill Gates is currently edging out Carlos Slim for richest North American. Otherwise, great quiz!

Hey, relessness. Where did you find data for your "Most Common Language by Native Speakers" column for each continent? We're making a quiz on the top five for each continent, and hopefully you're source has those listed as well :)

Hi! Sorry I have no idea? I genuinely can't find it. But there might have been a chance I worked it out myself somehow, but seriously can't remember. If I remember/find the source, I'll comment on one of your quizzes with the link

Think this quiz broke somewhere along the way
