in reply to poll ideas quest 2013

How many continents have you visited?

  • 0
  • 1
  • 2
  • 3
  • 4
  • 5
  • 6
  • 7

And on a more philosophical note:

How many continents are there?

  • 7 (Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, N America, S America)
  • 6 (Africa, Antarctica, Australia, Eurasia, N America, S America)
  • 5 (Afro-Eurasia, Antarctica, Australia, N America, S America)
  • 4 (Afro-Eurasia, America, Antarctica, Australia)

    How many continents are there?

    I have often seen and heard mention of Oceania for a great number of the Pacific islands, often also including a few of the bigger ones.

    Also Greenland as part of neither Americas nor Europe, but not too often.

    And if Eurasafrica should be 3 continents with that massive land border between Asia and Europe, the "Indian subcontinent" should also be raised to be a full continent.

    I am looking forward to what you make of it :-)

    Cheers, Sören

    No option to have Santa have his own continent? Why opt-in Antarctica as a seperate continent, but not the North Pole?

    /me visited 2 (Europe: many countries and N-America: US and Canada). I sometimes experience the U.K. as not being part of Europe, but that is OT for this quest.

      Santa already has his own continent: N-America (the home of Coca-Cola and friends ;)

      Because the North Pole is just a big icecube. The Antarctic has land: lots of it; more than Australia; more than Europe.

    What about asking the number of countries rather than continents? There might be less doubt about what is (or was at the time of the visit) a country.

      There are many more countries than continents ;) What would the options be if the topic was countries?

        What would the options be if the topic was countries?

        about ...

        • none
        • 2**-1
        • 2**0
        • 2**1
        • 2**2
        • 2**3
        • 2**4
        • 2**5
        • 2**6
        • 2**7
        • 2**8
        ...or more.

        Depending on the definition of a country, there are in between 270 and 300 and some more on this planet. Actually visiting all of them may be hard to do.

        Cheers, Sören
