    If that's the case, then the Aegean would be an educated guess.

    The Homer part is correct. Wrong sea, though.

    50. Where is the "Wine Dark Sea," and who originally called it that?
    Ooo ooh! I get a chance to play. It's the Med. Homerian, no?

    It only asked for the country, so I'll accept that. I did giggle at naming a swimming pool after him.

    [quote="mcgato"]Since gh seems to be mostly offline, and there are only a few questions left, I'm taking the liberty of continuing this quiz forward.

    49. What nation's prime minister went for a swim in the ocean on Dec. 17, 1967, and was never seen again - an event residents of this black-humored nation sometimes refer to as "the swim that needed no towel"?
