I don't think that knowing exactly where Malawi is is actually something you should be proud of.

33%

About a third of my misses were off by one country. About a third were roughly the right size, shape, and position (coastal, etc.) but 3 countries off. And about a third were WTF.

This would have been a lot easier had the country been removed from the map once it was already identified.

True story: in my 9th grade world geography class we had to label every country by continent throughout the year in the class on quizzes. But we were able to drop our lowest score. So I made the decision that it would be easier to remember the Asian countries than the african countries, so I didn't bother to even try and turned in a blank answer key. I made a 100 in the class.








Final score: 18% correct

Same for me except I had 49%.

The slave coast ones and the landlocked south-central ones are the toughest. The former because they are hard to keep straight, the latter because they are wtf no white person knows this.

I did make a couple of embarrassing mistakes, like confusing Kenya with Tanzania and Ethiopia with Somalia.

Not really.

How few of them would actually identify Canada? That’s what’s so bothersome.

I know where Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Somalia, Ethiopia, Sudan, Chad, Niger and Nigeria are in the north, as well as South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, and Madagascar in the south. I'm sure I could figure out a few more (e.g. Cote D'Ivoire), but might miss some if I were under the gun by one or two spots. I can't be bothered to care enough either way. What would that give me ... ~20% or so?


You know where sudan is but not south sudan?

This guy I know has tiny hands. As small as a 10 year old's hands. Freakish.

Something's up with him, because he was diagnosed with MS in his 40's.

I think they mostly steal each others'. The chief export from the country seems to be taxi drivers.
