    #12 – the most hotel rooms of any city in any country in the world. Are there cities that aren't in countries?

  • mckee14

    I live in Switzerland, and not only can you also ride in the front of a taxi, but also you can easily add salt and pepper to your meals without offending the chef. Sometimes I feel like people just state anything in the internet without even trying to check some facts.

    #9 "weigh"

  • KAA

    How about Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Vatican, San Marino, Monaco, and all the tiny island countries in the Caribbean and the Pacific?

    Also, it's acceptable in most of the countries to ride in the front seat of a taxi. It's a fact though that it's also acceptable in Australia, but a crappy fact. Like "there are cars in Norway", or "People live in houses in Belgium".

    And I'm not even going to start on the Falkland Islands fact…

    Your facts are bad, and you should feel bad.
