I SHEEPed the Cuban Missile Crisis because I didn't know what you were looking for. There are so many things that came to mind as political fall out and repercussions that the idea that there were only 4 threw me and I used my drop and SOS elsewhere.

5. Six treaties have been necessary to developing the European Union to its current state. Name one. BONUS: Name the date of that treaty.

King Brandon
alyster

Treaty of Lisbon - 3
Levistus
MYSTERYSTRANGER
Lusitan


Treaty of Paris - 2
Chaoshawk
Optimistic


SINGLETONS:
Maastricht Treaty - Zombie Lanae


A number of people went with one of the special answers. DylanCarter and Kill DROP'ed; Criminally Stylish went with SHEEP for 4 points; and JoshuaR, VL, Goldie and rabonnobar went with some fantastically strategic SOSes.


BONUSes: alyster, Levistus and MYSTERYSTRANGER were all correct and receive -1 to their scores.


WRONG: 
European Community - emphix (the European Community is a thing, but it was ambiguous if this was a treaty name or the name of the community itself)
the treaty that ended the 30 years war, 1666 - Hereno
League of Nations - jeff744
European Economic Council - Albionate

I went from 19 to 35 somehow between question 4 and 5. I demand an investigation until my points are fixed.

don't worry, some people seem to have also lost like twenty points. checking them now and rescoring. doing it by hand and watching a movie....which may not be an ideal situation, really. anyway, fixing.

wow, you totally beat me, but that does, indeed, look like what i'm getting. fortunately, helping me figure out where the errors were is helped by my having not saved recently. ugh. thanks, though! that'll save me quite a bit of time.

7. Select a group and name the number of countries which are full members. Include the letter of your selection in your answer. // a. NAFTA (3) / b. EU (28) / c. Shanghai Cooperation Organization (6) / d. Commonwealth of Independent States (9)  / e. NATO (28) / f. African Union (54)


SHEEP: a. 3 - 10

Hereno
Goldie
rabonnobar
jeff744
Albionate
DylanCarter


c. 6 - 2
Baltus
Chaoshawk


e. 28 - 2
Gym
King Brandon


No singletons this round. This question was apparently a bit more difficult than intended and given the SHEEP size the incorrect answers will be painful to the scoring.


MYSTERY STRANGER DROP'd for zero points and Lusitan went with an SOS that turned out to be zero points, too.


WRONG:
b. 26 Optimistic
b. 27 VL

WRONG: (I did this based on whether your descriptive answer could be understood by me to be one of the correct answers.)

9. Select an IATA code below and submit the proper name of that airport (i.e. JFK, not New York City Airport) and the letter of the code. // a. CPT (a. Cape Town International Airport) / b. FPO (Grand Bahama International Airport) / c. HAV (Jose Marti International Airport) / d. ACA (General Juan N. Alvarez International Airport) / e. MLB (Melbourne International Airport) / f. EWR (Newark Liberty International Airport) / g. AEP (Aeroparque Jorge Newbery) / h. BSB (Brasilia-Presidente Juscelino Kubitschek International Airport) / i. SHA (Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport) / j. MAA (Chennai International Airport) / k. TLS (Toulouse Blagnac Airport) / l. ADJ (Amman Civil Airport)


NO SHEEP, EXACTLY. Everyone was either wrong, a singleton, or used SHEEP or DROP as an answer. I counted the singletons as Co-SHEEP for the purposes of scoring.


SINGLETONS:
c. Jose Marti International Airport - MYSTERYPERSON
e. Melbourne International Airport - JoshuaR
f. Newark Liberty International Airport - rabonnobar
j. Chennai International Airport - Zombie Lanae


jeff744, DylanCarter and Optimistic SHEEP'd for one point and Lusitan, Baltus, Goldie and Albionate DROP'd.


WRONG: (These lacked the detailed part needed, ex: Newark LIBERTY, not just Newark)
i. SHA (Shanghai Airport) - Criminally Stylish
i. Shanhai - alyster
k. Toulouse - VL
major league baseball - Hereno
i. Shanghai International Airport - emphix
f. Newark International Airport - Kill
F. EWR is Newark airport in Newark, NJ/ - Gym
