Nice quiz. I had to guess a few countries to figure out where the Ligurian and Salton Seas are. Learned my new thing for the day.

The Salton Sea's story is remarkable - about 100 years it didn't exist. It then became one of the largest ever man-made mistakes when a canal breach ran out of control, for two years pouring water into what had previously been the Salton Sink.

it's drying up again, and those who remain are living deep in poverty in abandoned buildings or in tiny, and shrinking, communities with bad health. They actually kind of need the Salton Sea to continue to exist.

Thanks for mentioning me! Good choice of seas! I kenw about Ligurian Sea (being Italian) but had never heard of Salton Sea. Got them all except Solomon islands! I was curious about Monaco-Ligurian Sea because I would have thought that Ligurian Sea continues on part of the French coastline so I'll point out that while the English version of Wikipedia gives the Italy-France border as the limit point, the Italian page (http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mar_Ligure) mentions that according to 'Italian Navy' (not sure this is the right translation) the limits are larger than the ones according to Internation Organizations. Thanks again!

even if it stops on the border of the two countries, it would still be 0 miles from france.

Different seas appear in each version. (Judging by the relative scores, I've done the tough ones).
