In Czech, something like "Hmm, you've discovered America!" is a sarcastic reaction when you're talking to Captain Obvious, who's just made a huge "discovery" =) Could it be the same in Danish?

The same figure of speech is in Turkish, with a little adaptation, underlining the sarcasm: "discovering America all over again." When someone presents a cliché as a brilliant new idea, the other person says "There is no need to discover America all over again". :)

You and your friend are blindfolded and put in front of a map. You need to pinpoint a location. You say to your friend 'you find Europe, I find America'. Whoever pinpoints his or her location first wins a prize.

An interviewer asked the Beatles how they found America. I think it was John Lennon who said, "We turned left at Iceland."

I am very confused, is this the country or both the continents? I wrote "I find the united states" and it was marked as wrong.

I don't understand when countries are capitalised. In 'min kæreste er fra frankrig' it wasn't, but in this one I was marked wrong for not capitalising amerika...
