When is Asia not called Asia?
Countries located in the Middle East region that are also on the Asian continent are part of Asia but people simply refer to the region as the Middle East and exclude these countries when making reference to Asia. The vast majority of Russia is in Asia, but even when you are in the Asian portion of Russia, normally you wouldn't say you're in Asia. Asian countries like the Philippines and Indonesia are not physically on the Asian continent just like Britain is not on the European continent, are sometimes referred to as Pacific Islands rather than Asia. And then there is the Eurasian continent, Europe and Asia combined is actually one single continent, in this sense you would just say Eurasia to mean both Europe as well as Asia, such as "China is located in Eurasia."

The earth is divided into an imaginary id by lines of "latitude" and "longitude". Lines of latitude measue north and south, from 0 degrees (at the equator) to 90 degrees (at the earth's poles). Lines of longitude measue east and west, from 0 degrees to 180 degrees BUT there is no natural divider for… 0 degrees and 180 degrees like ther is with the equator. SO it was agreed by navigators that 0 degrees would be the line of longitude that runs through Greenwich England. Therefore when travelling from 0 degrees (in England) to the FAR EAST (close to 180 degrees east) you are in Asian waters. If you travel to the WEST (close to 150 degrees west) you are in the United States. The reason that these terms now apply to countries and lifestyles is because China and the US (for example) are the major countries at those latitudes.. Because it is on the far east.. I guess..
