  1. Almost four minutes to say "Waaah, this word doesn't have a clearly defined definition applicable to all possible edge cases!"

  2. Continent isn't a true geographical division; it's a cultural definition. Any competent dictionary will clarify that.

    It isn't Brazil which prevents you from walking (or driving) from the far north of North America to the far south of South America. It's the Darien Gap, a region of tropical rain forest in N. Columbia, and S. Panama. It's the only gap in the Pan-American Highway.
