How many US States border Mexico? (or something similar)

Correct answer was marked as 5 - did the USA recently add more states that I am not aware of?

Edit: Just thought - maybe I missed the word GULF in that question?

I just made a quiz question and inadvertently clicked the wrong answer. How can I correct this? The Capital of Saskatchewan is Regina, not Saskatoon.

To this date i have found numerous IDENTICAL or near identical quiz questions with different answers. For example:

"Who was the first Roman emperor: Gaius Octavius Augustus"

"Who was the first Roman emperor: Augustus Caesar"

"Who was the first Roman Emperor: Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus"

"Who was the first Roman Emperor: Augustus"

These are the most recent i have came upon. I would like to ask the question evaluaters to check preexisting questions, so that they will not allow identical questions to be posed.

It makes answering near impossible, if one is not particulary well versed in the particular disciple of knowladge.

With thanks:

What is the maximum length an ounce of gold can be stretched into a wire?
I'm sure that i've seen this posted before, but cant find it.
Surely
Can someone please explain it to me?

Sounds so much like how long is a piece of string?

And I am slightly dubious to find the given answer is a nice round 50m.

I found this posted on the world gold council page, and seemingly repeated on others with no basis of proof, "One ounce of gold can be stretched to a length of 50 miles; the resulting wire would be just five microns wide." But that says nothing about it being the maximum length. And if that is true then, a wire 1 micron wide would be 5 times longer......................etc.
And nowhere on the net that I have found is there anything to say what the longest thread ever made from an ounce of gold is.

*Modified*
Also just found this..........................................."How long can you stretch an ounce of gold?

of gold we can obtain a wire (0,000 005 in diameter) long of 62 miles.
Though again you will note that this is theoretical.

If you walk DUE south pole and take a LEFT once you arrive which direction will you be facing?

The answer marked correct is "North" so I assume that the question should read "If you walk due south to the south pole and take a left ...".

What is a perceptron?

a sci-fi robot
a diagnostic machine
a part of a computer hardware
a type of neural network

per·cep·tron
/pərˈsepträn/
Noun
A computer model or computerized machine devised to represent or simulate the ability of the brain to recognize and discriminate.

The Perceptron is a single layer neural network whose weights and biases could be trained to produce a correct target vector when presented ...

With these definitions available and the available answers, seems kind of ambiguous, either that or my perceptron is wrong

"The Incredible Hulk's alter ego is who?"

Dr. Bruce Banner is correctly given as the correct answer. Dr. David Banner, however, is another option listed. and while, most often (e.g., in the comic) Dr. Banner is named Bruce, his name was changed to David for the television series. therefore, this is a second correct answer and should be removed.

park is marked as correct, but as a slang term, it means to go out to a remote area to make out - which would seem to require a gathering of at least two people.
