NB: Today's quiz was shamelessly stolen from everywhere and has being doing the rounds of the net - mistakes intact - for years.

However, I will award one EXTRA point to anyone who spots the (glaring) error that keeps being copied and pasted along with it.

Answer: The Canary Islands are in the Atlantic, not the Pacific!

Here you are, proof, via Google Maps.

Sheesh, does one really have to live here to know that? With all the maps and information online these days, you would think people's geography would be improving, wouldn't you? Obviously not!
