    I almost got one right. I knew the US has 3,000 miles wide so I multiplied it by 4.5 then divided by two and added 1000 and I got and got 7,750 miles so I was pretty darn close

    The diameter of the earth in miles can't be right. From California to New York, for example, reads 2,789 miles. And we haven't even reached europe, asia, and around to Hawaii.... oh I'm sorry, I'm using a flat earth map.

    So apparently you're an idiot if you don't know the diameter of the earth, but it's completely fine to not even have a rough idea of what the conversion from km to miles is. Oke

  • Avro Arrow
    Avro Arrow Před 8 měsíci

    I didn't get the first one, I got Madagascar, but...
    Diameter of the Earth.... in miles? I'd lose because I know that it's about 12,750km but there's no way I'm good enough at math to do the conversion in time. LOL

    the largest island within the indian ocean is Australia. I there is despute whether Australia is an island or whatever but Australia is a country and an island as well. But Australia is also on the pacific and the souther ocean so maybe you meaned entirely within the Indian ocean so entirely within the indian ocean Madagascar would be the correct asnwer as you said.

    I got the first two questions, but I didn't know the last one because here in Brazil we use km rather than miles, but I knew that was something like 12.000 km.

    The real lesson to take away from this, is that Americans need to scrap the conversion factor they are adding to SI units and just start using those units.
