I can't think of anything challenging, so I'll throw in this quickie...

Is that the one with the Comoro Dragon (that giant monitor lizard) - I have seen it too many times for my liking on Discovery
I think it is somewhere near IndonesiaAdios Pep

Just checked a map. If Comoro is what we spell Comore then they're in the Indian Ocean, close to East Africa and Madagascar.
If not, I don't know.

Ohhhh, arrived too late! Yes, I agree....I think it's near Madagascar too. Although I can't imagine many people know a great deal about the place other than its location.Flonkkkk.

I was dumb enough to confuse it with Komodo island and Komodo dragons which are indeed in Indonesia

OK I'll throw out another easy one:
What is the oldest continually occupied Euopean-established city in the US?Those who believe in telekinetics raise my hand.

Not sure I understand the Q, but I'll guess Boston.“If everything's under control, you're going too slow.” Mario Andretti

It is not Boston. This is not a complicated question. The US as all of us know was explored by several European countries, Spain, England, Portugal, France, and I'm probably leaving someone out.
These countries had settlements. I'm looking for the one that is the oldest and continually occupied into the present. Does that clear things up?
The reason I say European-established is because
Acoma Pueblo or "Sky City" in New Mexico has been continually occupied since roughly 1,000 CE
But it is not a city in the sense that we usually consider.
It was, and is more of a community.

And handlers brought two species of wildlife—a southern ground hornbill from southern Africa and a red-ruffed lemur from an island near Madagascar—onstage before habitat questions were asked

I only consider 2 motorsports "sports" and in rally mainly gravel or snow only.
Actually Motor Division ----which was bikes and chainsaws and lawnmowers in 1976 was 3% of company sales.
they made about 6500 bikes in '76
And "Vappe" ("vapenfabrik" ) was around 49 largest Swedish Company in terms of turnover,
So motorsports was part of a household products company (sewing machines, stoves, waffel irons, etc) that also made bikes.
And I lived there for around 7 years--quite a while.
So you got the bike, what's the name of the TOWN
