    I'm quite good at geography...I know all of the countries and most capitals, not including central africa, and parts of eastern europe. Those are a bit too confusing/changing for me.

    On that Welsh flag, does that dragon have a penis coming out of its mouth?

    I used to know geography better than I do now. Most of Asia, Africa, and South America hasn't changed much, but Europe...bleh. Since the USSR has broken up, I haven't bothered to learn all the new borders.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    um, if you're being serious, you need to re-check your sources...

    That's nothing, did you also know the interesting demographic and environmental history of Kazakhstan?

    Heh, I can name any country one wishes to point to (I have slightly more difficulty with capitals, especially the one in Burkina Faso), except in Polynesia, Micronesia, and the Lesser Antilles. Its also a fairly useless skill as far as employment opportunities are concerned, so the major reason many Americans don't know geography is the same as the major reason we usually don't speak more than one language; its a pain in the ass (if one is not interested in it for its own sake), and we don't have to.

    That's an interesting question. I think you may be able to resolve it yourself, however, with recourse to a little prior knowledge.

    Are dragons known for exhaling:

    1) Penises?
    or
    2) Fire?

    Tricky one, I know. But I think you should be able to get there eventually

    Sometimes penises can feel like they're on fire. Maybe the Welsh flag is a social commentary.
