Posted:so ... everyone is playing the word game and the either/or game and so on and so on . i thought that maybe we could try the geography game ...

this is how it works , you post the name of a town or some place of well knowen geographical location ,

for example , killimanjaro ...... answer : tanzania

it doesnt have to be a capital or anything just a town/place that you could commonly find on a map . then the next person posts the country of that town and for bonus (if you can) post the state or province of the town/place biggrin

i know my geography isnt that good so lets see what happens ... wink

here goes , ill start .... with an easy one ... southern most point of africa ?

have fun ... i hope this game becomes as popular as the others cool


i like breaking the Law frown , of Gravity wink !

Posted:i'll wager it's some alaskan island or penninsula. no idea what any alaskan island or penninsula is called, so maybe my answer is not valid

i could look it up on google and find the exact answer but that's less fun.

just in case it's right i'll post the next question. if i'm wrong then scrap this ubbrollsmile

what's the 2nd highest mountain in the world?

Posted:Okay, i know you aren't going to believe this but greenland is actually wrong.
Despite the fact that it looks FREAKIN HUGE on a map, it actually isn't that big. It all has to do with the distortion of converting a spherical object on to a two demensional square.

The largest Island in the world is Borneo which is shared by indonesia, malaysia and someone else.

so, that leaves me with the question.........

What is the third largest ocean on earth.
