Same concept, different theme. All the SQL statements below are clues to the English spelling of countries.

Can you get them all?

As always, put your answers in the comments!

select *
from   german_affirmative
join   cooking_vessel;

select *
from   nuts
where  anaphylaxis = 'sexually transmitted';

select *
from   olde_english_the
join   males;

select *
from   elements
where  atomic_number = 47;

select *
from   programming_languages
where  able_to = 'influence PL/SQL';

select *
from   places
where  H2O = 'frozen';

  1. Hi Chris,

    thanks for coming up with a new and hard riddle. I really like it.
    My guesses:

    1) Japan
    2) Brazil (?)
    3) Yemen
    4) Argentina
    5) Canada (liked that one!)
    6) Iceland

    “Brazil” is really just a guess because of Brazil Nuts being angiosperms.

    Best regards,
    Salek
