Okay the scores:

Contestants:          Right: 2  Wrong: 4
LadyM  2
Leng    1
sgore   1

My question today is... where would you find Kakadu National Park?

Wow, these are really good questions, my guess is Alaska, because Kakadu sounds Alaskan

Which island has more land area, New Guinea or Borneo?

New Guinea

Alright, if that's just trivia then I change my question. I put it in because I thought geography was the study of land and the people who live there or something.

Anyway, here's my new question: Name one Indian kingdom (I mean in the country of India, not Native Americans.)

Sultanate of Delhi, Mughal Empire, Vajayanagar, Ceylon, do any of those count?

So, how did I do this time?

More questions!!!

a plane crashes right on the canadian american border, yet at no time did it ever fly over or even near Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine.

How is this possible? (this one is fairly easy but it's what i came up with at the moment...)
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

what is the total topographic surface area of earth?
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

I don't understand what your question is really asking.

I think I do.

Let's say there's a mountain. The mountain has a slope, and more surface area than the land underneath, right? What is the total surface area of the earth, including the slopes of mountains and hills and valleys.

But, I'm not sure whether he means underwater land, or the surface of the water, or if he's even counting water at all.

Spore countdowns: USA Europe

They flew by Alaska.

Rio Grande

What is the name of the micronation in the North Atlantic that is roughly 550 square meters in size?

Sealand! That place is sooo funny, if any of you don't know about it, look it up.

what is the total topographic surface area of earth?

I'm assuming you mean the whole Earth, including the bottom of the oceans, approx 197,000,000 mi2

So, how did I do this time?

More questions!!!

yes, that is what I'm asking, and it's solid ground, so the bottom of the ocean counts.
