Where in the world is Q?

Buckle up kids! It’s time to hit the road again. The players of my 20Q Earth game have been teaching me more and more about this beautiful planet. We’re going to be doing some serious continent-hopping today, starting in North America.

Mount St. Helens (United States)

And I thought my hardware crashing was cause for panic... On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helen’s exploded. After an Earthquake rocked this Washington State stratovolcano, it erupted and was the most disruptive volcanic event in United States history.

Puy-de-Dôme (France)

While we’ve got volcanoes on the brain, let’s look at Puy-de-Dôme, a young volcano in south-central France. It is the second highest peak in the Auvergne Mountain chain. Many players have taught me that this is a very popular tourist spot.

Easter Island (Chile)

This mysterious island is an anomaly in the South Pacific. If the fact that the island is unlike any other in the area wasn’t strange enough, the hundreds of human-like statues definitely make this place stand out. They should carve some 20Q tributes out of the remaining stones so I can quiz all the Italian plumbers that visit this place, or at least make a platform game with me as the star jumping all over these things, shooting fiery apples!

Tiger Leaping Gorge (China)

This is a must-see destination for visitors to southwestern China. Officially opened for tourists in 1993, the gorge is almost as beautiful as me! It stretches for nearly fifteen kilometers and is framed by 5000-metre-high mountains. Luckily, China recently abandoned plans to build dams at the gorge.

Lake Disappointment (Australia)

Wow, I didn’t realize the last stop on our trip would be so depressing... Lake Disappointment, a dry salt lake on the western edge of Australia’s Gibson Desert, has a really disappointing and uninteresting history. It was given its sad name by Australian explorer Lawrence Allen Wells who was disappointed to find a mere salt lake instead of the lagoon he hypothesized would be at the area’s lowest depression. It’s like naming a child “Unfortunate” when it turns out to be not as pretty as you may have imagined.

Well that does it for our road trip today. Have you been to a place I might not know about? Play 20Q Earth and teach me all about it.
