Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?
The 8 countries that border Turkey: Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan (with Azerbaijan’s exclave of Nakhchivan), Iran, Iraq, Syria, Greece, and Bulgaria.
Of those, Greece extends the furthest west, and Iran the furthest east. (Prior to the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the U.S.S.R would have been the “east” half of this correct response.)
