I'm not bitching, really i'm not. I enjoyed this clever WP no end, well done. I was amazed, given the subject matter, just how many times "America" managed to get mentioned though. The heavy bias to all matters concerned with "'America" is my excuse for being happy to finish in the top twenty.

All the continents are fairly represented in this one. 6 were in 3 each and 1 was in only 2. Just luck of the draw.

America, America, America, America! Sorry cloggs! Couldn't help myself. I got a few of them too.

Really enjoyed this one.

Enjoyed it. I had 6 continents and learned some interesting facts.

I'm really enjoying these off-the-wall puzzles.

I knew we had covered this subject before, but just not in the same way.

There are two Americas and I had each one once. (Sorry, Dave, Palestine is not a continent yet. )

Kudos to Amazing Anne's 11. This lady is unreal and has my admiration almost daily.

I pulled a couple of confirming letters for Lamizell-type problems. Otherwise, I still would have been 2nd.

See, Leslie, your handle is now part of a phrase.

My bitching has made me famous. How appropriate.

In other news: "Megacities" was just mean.

Well I just enjoyed it a lot...and my only bitch was that on my first puzzle where the answer was South America I assumed it would be North America for Clevercloggsian reasons. See you get to make an adjective too!

I had all continents. Only 2 of the five had the word America in it. Geography not my strongest subject, but the math clues were great.

Ok, kids a little combinatorics time.

You have seven continents. Pick any two. Such as North and South America, although this argument follows for any pair you pick.

Each puzzle represented two continents. There are 21 (7 * 6 / 2) distinct pairs of continents that could be used in a particular puzzle. And there are 10 (5 * 4 / 2) pairs that do not contain at least one America. Which means 11, or over half the puzzles that could be written would have at least one America.

So seeing 3 puzzles with an America should not surprise you. Or 3 with one from any pair you like. 2 is also a typical result. But 4 or 1 aren't outlandish either.

Kaufman should write a combinatorics theme puzzle, What an explanation. Impressive!!
