The other day Meg pointed to this little game where you try to name all the American states in under 10 minutes. I went 45 for 50, which I think is fairly respectable for a Canadian. I’d be a little worried if I knew all fifty.
Much trickier, however, is naming all 53 African nations. I got just 30. The job is all the more difficult because those countries change names on a fairly regular basis. I’d never even heard of a couple of the countries I missed. I was, for example, entirely unaware that there was an island nation between Madagascar and mainland Africa.
How did you fair? I’d like to try Europe and Asia as well.
