Recommend changing the second Oceania answer to be consistent with the Capitals of the World quiz. Almost missed it due to that.

Amsterdam and Paris are exactly the same distance from the States. It'll make sense with a globe - Mercator projection on most standard maps really distorts the closest straight-line distance, and the shortest straight-line distance here appears on Mercator-projected maps as an upward-sweeping arc.
