  1. Lots of islands and small countries with seacoasts… plus Algeria, which isn’t small. Countries whose capitals disappear if sea levels rise more than X meters?

    • I’m not sure whether to say this is correct or not. It’s really close if it isn’t.

      Oooohhh… What the heck-il-diddile-do. I was thinking “Countries whose capitals have an elevation of sea level.”

      • I wouldn’t have given it to me. Amsterdam, at below sea level, would be on any list built from my guess (unless X is within the engineering capabilities of the Dutch). Wikipedia has conflicting data for Washington, DC: the list of capital cities by altitude puts Washington at two meters; the Wikipedia article for the District puts a portion of it at sea level.

        Still, I’ll take credit for a good guess, made before I looked at any resources besides memory.

  2. True confessions: I posted your trivia question on my FB page. So if you see it floating there, that could be the explanation.

    If you want credit linked here, speak soon and it shall be so.
