    I, too, have a map and I did become a 2nd Lieutenant after I made Staff Sergeant. No fair changing the playing field... you initially has said "North America" and now you want to change it to "North American Continent."

    At any rate, in my world here is a list of the countries that the World Atlas says are in North America:

    S.N. Sovereign states
    1 Antigua and Barbuda
    2 Bahamas
    3 Barbados
    4 Belize
    5 Canada
    6 Costa Rica
    7 Cuba
    8 Dominica
    9 Dominican Republic
    10 El Salvador
    11 Grenada
    12 Guatemala
    13 Haiti
    14 Honduras
    15 Jamaica
    16 Mexico
    17 Nicaragua
    18 Panama
    19 Saint Kitts and Nevis
    20 Saint Lucia
    21 Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
    22 Trinidad and Tobago
    23 United States
    hmmm, and what world atlas might that be? is it too late to get your money back?..... your atlas must've left Greenland off just to make me happy.....oh wait a minute, Greenland's in Denmark, I had forgotten that...why, that's prob'ly why they left the Virgin Islands off your list too.....mac

    Just so I'm clear on this - where does the isthmus start and stop in Central America? At a man-made (or should I say, man-defined) border of a country?
    Where does the continent of South America begin?
    Is Central America it's own continent, then?
    After all, we're talking about the CONTINENT of North America, right?
    well, i was but, i'm not clear at all to what Ludwig's talkin' 'bout. he may be a little cozy with ole Jose or Mr. Beam right about now.....mac

    Yes, I only listed sovereign countries, which Greenland is not. You don't like links but the map is at: http://www.mapsofworld.com/north-america/

    No, central America is NOT it's own continent. it's an isthmus that connects the 2 continents of North and South America...kapich?..... if you really want to know, Central America starts with Guatamala and Belize on the North (or East) and ends with Panama on the South (or West).....mac
    Well, I've read and was taught that the isthmus is actually Panama.
