Update. I made some major changes to this quiz to make it less U.S. centric.

Not sure why I had previously given 4 stars to these quizzes (changed to 5 now), but it might have been because of this.

So many questions about forgettable non-superpowers. Needs more questions about USA. USA is the lifeblood of the new world.

Too Suriname-centric. Suriname makes up less than 0.06% of the population of the Americas, and yet almost 5% of questions are about it. I'm so sick of this site's Suriname bias. There's a world outisde Suriname, y'know.

Ah yes, the 1904 Olympics, considered to be one of the worst Olympics ever.

"The slapdash nature of the Games was summed up by the marathon, held on a 90-degree late August day. Only 14 of 32 runners finished, with the winner originally thought to be Fred Lorz of New York. There was one problem: He had stopped running after nine miles and hitched a ride in a car. When the car broke down, Lorz felt better and jogged into the stadium well ahead of his competitors. He was about to accept the gold medal, when it was learned Thomas Hicks, another American, was the real winner. Hicks was no angel, having received shots of strychnine and brandy from his trainers to keep from collapsing."

They hadn't really mastered doping back then. Hicks was so drugged up by the end of the race he had to be carried by his trainers across the finish line. Babe Ruth's performance enhancing drugs of choice were cigars, beer, and hot dogs.

Sounds like typical St. Louis shenanigans to me. But you have to remember they were also running a World's Fair that year so they were spread pretty thin. :)

The lake question is missleading, the lake superior is the largest by area but not by volume!

but not necessarily the world's biggest....Lake Baikal is the world's deepest freshwater lake with the most volume, containing 22–23% of the world's fresh surface water. With 23,615.39 km3 (5,670 cu mi) of fresh water,[1] it contains slightly more water than the North American Great Lakes. the question needs to be more specific, leave out the word "world", or specify by area, not volume
