Hee hee. There's a country called "U R GAY"
 
2006-09-15 07:44:10 AM
50%.

I thought China had annexed Taiwan already.

For that matter, those tiny Island nations are really hard to see/get a handle of with the mouse. Hell, I had trouble clicking on Cuba. I couldn't even see Barbados. Clicked St. Kitts/Nevis instead.

I wonder how well Europeans would do on US states/Canadian provinces. I know they own us on the global geography, on average.
 
2006-09-15 07:45:05 AM
50% and I got East Timor correct!
 
2006-09-15 07:46:44 AM
I picked Seycelles out of my ass and still only scored 20%
 
2006-09-15 07:47:52 AM
50%

World Capitals is ridiculous.
 
2006-09-15 07:50:27 AM
Austria was Hungary, took a bit of Turkey, dipped it in Greece and fried it in Japan.
 
2006-09-15 07:50:37 AM
60% - And I'm a frikin Canadian, perhaps it's too early; OR perhaps I just don't givve a fark about back-water shiate-holes in central Africa!
 
2006-09-15 07:50:43 AM
I like Sheppard's Software Geography Games better, I usually get 90% or more on the African ones.

/I got 80% or more in this game, don't know much about the small islands at all
 
2006-09-15 07:50:50 AM
You had sea shells in your ass?
 
2006-09-15 07:51:46 AM
90%, working in the travel trade does have advantages.
 
2006-09-15 07:52:17 AM
40%

I'm like, angry at countries. There's like, too many of them.
 
2006-09-15 07:52:50 AM

2006-09-15 07:55:37 AM
90% 1st try messed up Rwanda/Burundi and 100% second try. Not a geography masters student.
 
2006-09-15 07:56:02 AM
100 percent.

But then, I guessed on Suriname and Liberia and got em right. And one of my questions was where the United States, Iran, Taiwan and Saudi Arabia was...so easy.
 
2006-09-15 07:59:22 AM
Holy See? It's called the Vatican, dammit!
 
2006-09-15 08:00:06 AM
70% and well ahead of the curve.
 
2006-09-15 08:03:14 AM
Whew! There's a lot of countries to "protect from terrorists" here. Hopefully, this quiz will get easier and easier.
Question 1: Where is America?
Question 2: Where is America?
Question 3: Where is America?
 
2006-09-15 08:05:19 AM
70%. I mistook Lebanon for Israel. Ooops.
 
2006-09-15 08:07:14 AM
I got a D in freshman geography in high school. It was after lunch, and I always got stoned during lunch.

I got the highest score achieved on the geography test taken by 695 kids in senior government class.

No less than ten teachers came to stare at the freak (me) after the win.

/Knew where Yemen was on the map
//Also Checkoslovakia
///Have no idea about the layout of post '90 Europe
////It's Kampuchea biatch! (well, not really....)
////I wanna cookie
 
2006-09-15 08:07:59 AM
Okay:

world 1: 30%
world 2: 30%
world 3: 40%
capitals: 50%
europe: 50% -- I'm German ;-(

I think one should get extra credit for chosing a country that shares a border with the correct country...
 
2006-09-15 08:10:22 AM
peachy92: Took it 3 times. I got 80%, 90%, and 80% Small little nations like Samoa and Benin got to me.

2006-09-15 08:15:18 AM
Geezus... it told me to find Congo, I picked Democratic Republic of Congo. I'm such an IDIOT. GOD.
 
rp.
2006-09-15 08:15:54 AM
80%, 70%, and 90%. Each time I got one wrong, I was clicking on a country that bordered it.
 
2006-09-15 08:20:48 AM
Stupid quiz. Where is Congo? I clicked on Congo, huge mf country where I was born, and it said, "no, sorry, that is Congo Democratic Republic of," and then highlighted "Congo, Brazaville".

"Where is Guinea", wow... there are at least four countries called Guinea. They meant Guinea Conakry, but if they can't get their MF quiz right, I'm not going to play.

Stupid quiz. Stupid graphics. Waste of time.
 
2006-09-15 08:23:58 AM
What a stupid quiz. Who cares where some obscure African country that probably won't exist in 10 years is? Jesus.


Well, who cares where some obscure American state is?

/cares a little
//yeah, Africa kills me too
///too embarrassed to reveal my score
 
rp.
2006-09-15 08:24:06 AM
I got 100% on Asia. Then the quiz went back in time and made sure I never lost my virginity.
 
2006-09-15 08:27:29 AM
I needed help from moose and squirrel when I got to the Eastern European countries.
Ur a peeing? HA HA HA. I kill me!
 
2006-09-15 08:28:38 AM
1st try 60, 2nd try 70, 3rd try 80.

/// Got the Marshall Islands yay!
 
2006-09-15 08:30:44 AM
Snake939 and ites

MAJOR DITTO on the Congo. I knew the one that used to be called the Congo and the one that used to be called Zaire. Knew they'd changed something but wasn't sure.

MAJOR TRICK QUESTION.
 
2006-09-15 08:31:23 AM
30%
so, so sad...

but at least i know where the Djiboutians are now.
 
2006-09-15 08:31:41 AM
I'm taking a geography class online right now. Unfortunately it has nothing to do with naming and locating the countries. :o(. But my book does have a map in it. Guess I won't cheat......
 
2006-09-15 08:35:11 AM

Damn!! who the hell knows where Armenia is?
 
2006-09-15 08:40:21 AM
Ok, WTF is Armenia doing on the Europe part of the quiz, and since when did they get there own country? I thought the Turks were still ruling them with an Iron Fist.
 
2006-09-15 08:42:38 AM
woo hoo 10%. Where is this "Canada" anyway?
 
2006-09-15 08:42:39 AM

2006-09-15 08:45:36 AM
90% (YOU farkin' find Vanuatu)
90% (Guessed right on both Grenada and St. Vincent & the Grenadines before I choked on Marshall Islands. Too many damn sticks pointing into the water.)
100% (of course, one of them was "Where is the United States of America?" LOL.)

/why yes, I am a geography nerd
 
2006-09-15 08:46:32 AM
The capitals game is very entertaining... who comes up with these names?
 
2006-09-15 08:47:05 AM
According to wikipedia there are 243 entities considered to be countries: 202 sovereign states and 36 inhabited dependent territories.

That's a lot to memorize.

That's just not even funny.
 
2006-09-15 08:47:52 AM
Fark I'm addicted to this now. I need to get to class.
 
2006-09-15 08:48:27 AM
I already knew that my geography is abysmal so my results were not a particularly great shock. 10% the first time, and that's only because it asked me where the USA is.

/Good thing I'm not an American, or I wouldn't even have been able to do that. ;)
 
2006-09-15 08:49:41 AM
Ha! The page just crashed!!

Congratulations fellow farkers.


\and farkettes
 
2006-09-15 08:50:08 AM
