Well, it is CNN after all. They don't even know how old the earth is. (actually no one does)


No comment.

As to the quiz, I got 4 out of 10.

Oh brother, where did you go to
school. We know almost exactly
how old it is, give or take a few
million years.

That's hilarious, you get your information from a five year olds question. Like you, they will believe almost anything.

I think you are our winner. I got the first 5 and missed the last 5, but in retrospect the brightest city I should have known. I was only able to guess the US national park by logic (it had to be near an urban center).

How old is the Earth?
How many people live on Earth?
Where is the largest active volcano on the planet?
Which US national park was the most popular in 2018?
Which country hosts most of the world's biological diversity?

Which city appears the brightest from space?
What official name did the United Nations give to April 22?
What was the first mammal known to have gone extinct due to "human-induced" climate change?
Who founded Earth Day?
What is the largest organism on Earth?

I overthought this one. Was going to say Vegas, but then figured that NYC at several times the size must be brighter. Cloud cover, or lack of it, may help.

CNN fake poll! They don't even know or probably just don't want to say the largest organism in the world is President Trumps giant brain.

You believe in an invisible god, and dismiss people who say they are trans? Really?

I tried to find something you might
understand. I should have looked
for something even simpler.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.
