    I actually did manage 195 countries after several tries...that's what comes from hanging around International Studies majors. And yes Perun is quite right, Sporcle is a gigantic waste of time, which is why I believe it's been all the rage the past months in college. :)

    Why is it a waste if time ? it's a great way to practice our written English.  :smartarse:

    Ah, the way they said that meant it was a good thing, Rotam.

    At the age of 40, I finally have a clue where all the 50 US states are located. Never learned it before (only knew about 15 to 20 or so), but since a while we have a good app on the iPad, and last week, after about an hour, I got the 100% score. Fun to do as well. Might try the game in this topic soon.

    Congrats. My biggest success with states so far is that I read the list and none of the names sounded unfamiliar. :p I wanted to check it because 50 sounded like much more than I could name off the top of my head. No clue about the specific location of majority of them.

    I can free-draw the USA AND Europe. Not Africa though.

    I know where all the states are located but pinpointing the East coast is an impossible task for me. A lot of smaller states very close to each other.

    I cannot name all the states off the top of my head. Not without a map, at least. But give me a US map without words (with borders though!), name a state (small ones included), and I can point at its location.
    Here: http://www.sporcle.com/games/Matt/find_the_states
    Score: 100% (50/50). Timer: 4:45. So it took 2 minutes and 15 seconds.

    I can do Europe as well, but not the other continents. I'd need some (re-)practice first.
    And I got them in 2.16.
    (In this game you write the state, and then the state appears on the map)

    I did fantastically well at Antarctica. All correct in about 1 second.
