    ^You're lucky. The ones I met didn't even know there were other countries.

    The hours spent trying to prove a few Americans that Lithuania actually exists... Oh the nostalgia.

    I remember going to a middle school in Florida with my ex (she was doing a teaching fellowship there at the time), and being introduced to the kids as being from Britain. The teachers then asked the class of 13 year olds if anyone knew where it actually was and if they could find it on the large map of the world that was conveniently hanging on the wall at the front of the classroom. The bright kid of the class was persuaded to accept the challenge. With some prompting and guidance, he eventually settled on the southern part of Finland with some confidence

    It sounds a bit like trying to explain the distinction between Wales, Britain and England. I invoke St Jude for support and guidance every time I have to embark on this one. They never seem to end up much the wiser

    England and Wales are legally one jurisdiction. Scotland and Northern Ireland are distinct, but England and Wales are joined. So my country of birth is, technically "England and Wales"

    It's why the "England" cricket team includes Welshmen.

    I've found that being an American with an extensive knowledge of geography is very frustrating and embarrassing. I actually knew Kazakhstan before Borat.

    Aww man!... I was hoping that maybe there would have been a Geography challenge, but instead it's just jargon.
    ... They say that knowledge is free, and to truly acquire wisdom always comes with a price... Well then,... That will be $10, please!
