    (Original post by BuzzyB73)
    Interesting to know. Does that mean I still get a point?

    Amber Room (And Kaliningrad is still part of Russia...)
    But it's a separate part of Russia bordering separate countries that do not border the main part of Russia. So for the purpose of examining borders of a single country, it is redundant here. Please return to your seat.

    Yantarnaya Komnata
    Edit: Jantarova Komnata in my language. = Amber chamber
    Sorry, going to be savage and refuse this as a winning answer too, still giving half a point since it's correct. But you did edit.

    For once a punctual answers post!:yay:

    I've been savage with some refusals above, but I've been too lenient so far.:security:

    1. Frogs are the biggest group of amphibians. Not toads or any other species.
    2. Melania Trump was born in Slovenia in 1970. Both names for it to count I'm afraid.
    3. Meta-carpals are in the hands. Carpals are in the wrists and the meta means "outside of".
    4. Jayne and Christopher are the first names of ice-skating duo Torvill and Dean.
    5. The green ball in snooker is worth 3 points.
    6. Sri Lanka used to be known as Ceylon
    7. The first public steam railway in the world ran between Stockton and Darlington
    8. With 14, China is the country with the most borders. Some clarification over Russia is above.#
    9. The Amber Room mysteriously disappeared from St Petersburg during WWII and the contents was moved to Germany, last seen in 1945.
    10. The stamp introduced on May 6, 1840 was the Penny Black


    Next quiz should be at the respectable hour of 8pm


    Thanks again for playing along.

    I edited after to provide the English translation but the Russian name was in the original post.
    Edit: It's only a 0,5 point, not that I particularly care of. Just saying.
