Has someone checked the population densities?[edit]

(>.<)The population density for Russia is incorrect. It should be 8.3 given the numbers included in the table. This would also bring it into agreement with the global geography entry which lists a population density for Russia of 8.3. I haven't had a chance to check the other numbers, someone probably ought to.


Europe-Asia boundary?[edit]

The boundary between Asia and Europe may be indistinct, but is there consensus that the Ural Mountains and the Ural River form a boundary? If so, then that would place Anatolia and Iran, etc. in Europe. Therefore, some southern boundary, such as the Caucasus Mountains is needed to keep those regions in Asia. This discussion of boundary should be more about geography and less about history, as are the other boundary discussions. User:HopsonRoad 21:23, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

The boundaries are arbitrarily determined by consensus, but yes, almost ubiquitously the Ural Mountains and Ural River are included in the boundary. The southern boundary is generally considered to be the crest of the Caucasus, although Encyclopaedia Britannica places it further north, at the Kuma–Manych Depression.

Then Goergia should also be named as a country in Asia. Why it is not in the list? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.114.33.101 (talk) 04:16, 18 July 2016 (UTC)

I appreciate your update, CMD. I feel that it would help the article to clarify that (with references, of course). Cheers, User:HopsonRoad 01:16, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

Asaland[edit]

In the Aesir-Vanir War Asia or Asaland is mentioned: 'Snorri states that Odinn led a great army from Asia ("Asaland") to attack the people of "Vanaland". Asia may have been the homeland of all Indo-European tribes. The Scandinavian Aesir may correspond to the Indian Asuras and Asia may have derived her name from The Aesir-Asuras. 10Guillot (talk) 15:51, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Please put the role of Pakistan and fast emerging best performing stock exchange of Pakistan in this article. The role of Pakistan in stabilising the whole of the world by protectng from and fighting against terrorism. Pakistani Noble laureates.[edit]

It is unfair not to mention the intellect and Noble laureates from Pakistan. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.91.132.95 (talk) 08:09, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
