    Default Asian countries

    This might be a better test to compare European vs American knowledge (for the record, I am neither):

    Can you name the countries of Asia? - sporcle

    33/48

    Some of these I just went blank on, and others (generally the ones ending in 'stan') I knew the countries but couldn't spell them.
    ...so much smoke pouring out of each chromosome.

    As I said I did 47/48 on Asia.

    I could not spell Kyrgysatan.

    Europe: 23/47
    US States: 38/50
    Africa: 12/53
    Asia: 19/48
    South America: 2/12

    I didn't do anymore because I've gotten the idea... I really suck at geography.

    Europe: 47/47 by 7:24.

    Asia: 48/48 by 5:00.

    South America: 12/12 by 4:06.

    North America: 22/23, gave up by 5:22. Felt silly about the one I missed.

    Africa: 50/53, ran out of time. I forgot three of the islands!

    US state: 50/50 by 6:32, and the only reason it took that long is because their names have such screwed-up spellings.

    I have disqualified myself from the oceania quiz, because I happened to be looking at a map of it too recently for me to consider fair.

    So, that's all of them.

    EDIT: For the hell of it, did the largest countries test. Got 25/25 by 5:18.

    Did the Canadian provinces. Gave up by 2:00 when I had 11/13. Only screwed up as a matter of spelling on one, and the precise name of the other elluded me.
    Go to sleep, iguana.

    43/48 Asia (Missed Bahrain and couldn't spell some others)
    35/47 Europe (Forgot to list city-states and anything smaller than Belgium. I also couldn't remember the former soviet states for the life of me.)
    23/53 Africa (Never studied the continent much. )
    9/23 North America (Note to self: Caribbean countries are sovereign.)
    12/12 South America (Enough said)
    3/14 Australia (Those tiny islands... they exist?)

    Yeah... I need to work on it.

    PS: 50/50 US states. 13/13 for Canadian provinces.

    50/50 for the U.S. states. I can't list all fifty off the top of my head, though; I have to have a map. I was stuck at 49/50 for about five minutes. Maryland? Seriously?

    27/47 for Europe
    0/0 for Antarctica

    I'm not trying any more. I didn't pay attention in seventh-grade Geography.
