sri lanka? singapore? cape verde? ireland? UK?
Jan 9th, 2010 at 08:59 GMT
Ireland and the UK both share a land border- read the instructions!!!
Jan 9th, 2010 at 09:09 GMT
Hi funkytim. I really really LOVE this quiz. And you are TOTALLY right, the uk and ireland dont count as they share a land border. People should read your instructions. I know I did. Do you want to go for a drink sometime?...
Jan 9th, 2010 at 09:49 GMT
Thanks for your nice comments xin chao, I realise I made a couple of mistakes when I first put the quiz up but some of them weren't very supportive! I'd love to go for a drink sometime but first- if you were a island nation, which didn't share a land border, then which one would you be and why? Tam biet!!
Jan 9th, 2010 at 10:03 GMT
well funkytim, I think that if I were an island nation without land borders, I would have to be Tuvalu because I'm very hot, a bit mysterious and definitely a little taste of paradise. And you?... cam on!
Jan 9th, 2010 at 10:24 GMT
Well, I would be St Kitts and Nevis because although I may sound a little boring, you shouldn't judge a book by its cover- dig a bit deeper and you'll find a tropical jungle waiting to be explored and tamed.

Cuba is missing, Australia is not considered an island, but a continent.
Comment below threshold:

ok I didn't read the instructions re UK & Ireland sorry, have now though and Haiti has a land border with Dominican Republic NOT Cuba
Jan 9th, 2010 at 11:24 GMT
OK I've put Cuba in but East Timor has land borders with Indonesia. Australia is a country, and it has no land borders.

Nice quiz but the numbers aren't correct...
Jan 9th, 2010 at 13:57 GMT
A few things. 1) All the countries you've called South America (i.e. the Caribbean) are normally considered North America. South of Panama (the South American landmass) is South America, everything North is North America. 2) In your answers, you should always put the country's common name in full - i.e. Saint, not St. 3) Half the time, 5 minutes would be ample. 4) I'm pretty sure this quiz has already been done and published. However, it's always good to see people making new quizzes so don't be discouraged.
Jan 9th, 2010 at 13:59 GMT
Oh and why is Cuba 22a? And the numbers from Cape Verde down are messed up.
Jan 9th, 2010 at 14:56 GMT
Nice idea. As has been said, everything that you've listed as "South America" is actually North America; South America's countries all have at least one land border.
Jan 9th, 2010 at 20:32 GMT
Er, a nice quiz but you have no chance of it being published as there is already one exactly the same: http://www.sporcle.com/games/islandnations.php the only difference being that one has Cyprus as a bonus answer. Sorry.

Cuba should be not on there. It has a land border with the USA at Guantanamo Bay.
Jan 10th, 2010 at 06:00 GMT
I was thrilled to see that somebody had courageously taken it upon themselves to challenge the Sporcle powers that be and their pedantic disciples by creating such an utterly second rate quiz. It is a masterpiece of incompetence, a comedy of errors, if you will. Accurately reflects the zeitgeists that brought about the arbritary and disputable borders that we quibble over today. Well done.

Thanks for all your helpful comments. To answer the concerns you have raised- the numbers are out of order because I needed to add in a country and to reorder them would take a considerable amount of time, hence 22a. I am a lazy and idle person. However, I have seen the error of my ways and have decided to remove the numbering to stop any confusion arising. Cuba has no land border with the USA. The USA leases Guantanamo Bay from Cuba under the 1903 Cuban-American treaty. While the USA maintains de facto sovereignty, Cuba retains ultimate sovereignty over the area. I have changed South America to North America. I was wrong, and I'm sorry. I have also changed the quiz's name to help clarify what countries are accepted. I hope this helps. I have changed it to 5 minutes. I underestimated the intelligence of sporcle users. However, all these changes are pointless- this quiz has already been created. That's the last time I spend an hour of my life contributing something to the community that has given me so much.
