Missed Samar (guessed Cebu, Leyte, and every other island I could think of...), Charice (never heard of her), and Tarsier (I think I tried spelling it "Tarsir")

I was going to recommend this quiz to be featured but looks like QM beat me to it. Maybe my Saudi Arabia Quiz would be suitable, too?

Except for their location. In the Atlantic and eastern Pacific Oceans they are hurricanes, in the Indian Ocean they are cyclones, but in the western Pacific they are typhoons. Tornadoes are a completely different critter.

@ander that is not definitive. In Australia (western Pacific) they are called cyclones and we get them quite regularly.

That's like saying it's not water because someone is drinking a glass of the same stuff in Kyrgyzstan. Then we have to call it something different just to be "right" to whoever arbitrarily made up a silly rule for everyone else.

I'm a little disappointed that you chose to add people like Imelda Marcos and Manny Pacquiao in the quiz over someone like Agapito Flores or other people who actually made the world a better place.
