Geography quiz!!
« on: July 12, 2007, 05:58:04 am »

Any geography geeks out there? There must be! This site lets you locate countries/states on a map and scores you. I got 132 pts for USA! Helps having an American girlfriend. I ALMOST got all of Europe except I screwed up on Serbia dagnabbit.

Russia was a bit trickier…

I used to be a geo geek in high school, but I've forgotten where many of the countries
are now. Alas. (Atlas?)

I have a fond memory of geo class in school when a girl asked, "Is Asia in Russia?"
Ah, fun times.

I used to be good at this too. There have been a lot of changes in the world since my high school days though (like the Balkans for example).

Oh, well...at least I can still ace the USA quiz.  Cheesy

I'm from Canada, and we only have 13 regions. It was pretty easy to pass the test.

149/150 on US (I switched Vermont and New Hampshire)
112/117 on Europe (Yugoslav fragments nailed me, and I mixed up Molvania... I mean Moldova... with Ukraine)
37/39 on Canada (PEI, and I figured the NW territories would be in the NW. Go figure.)
95/96 on Asia (I thought Tajikistan was Uzbekistan)

The asia quiz is broken. I answered Singapore correctly and it said I was wrong, TWICE.
Really, they should have set aside the entire interior of those little circles as belonging to the encircled state. Oh well.

94/96 for Asia (screwed up the central Asian countries)

But get this:
158/162 for Africa!
I challenge anyone to beat that

Shocked Impressif [sic]. Africa is a really despairing one.

And indeed, the stans in Asia and former Yugoslavia in Europe were troublemakers. Tongue

I managed to get a perfect score for USA on the sixth attempt (up from 89/150...).
Now I actually get the states joke in the Simpsons trailer. Cheesy

150/150 USA
36/39 Canada

$%&@$%&%#@* @$^@!##&$@%$#!%#@

Thanks for ruining my perfect score for an entitre continent, Prince Edward Island. I did not know that little floating turd even existed. Outside of North America, I do not trust my geography at all. Maybe I should try memorizing South and Central America so I can say I know half the planet really well.
