All around the world statues crumble for me

Today, I tested my geography and felt sorely lacking in my knowledge of the countries of the world. Fifteen minutes, and I could only name 77 of 195 (~40%). When my time was up there were several "duh" countries I missed, but I was pretty maxed out. Here's how I failed:

So, without looking at a map, what countries did I miss that you know? Did you fair any better in 15 minutes? Take the quiz here.

I did worse! I only got 71 right. I missed France (I coulda sworn I'd typed it in multiple times) and didn't know how to spell "Papua" in Papua New Guinea. So in my book I got 73. I stared at Nepal on the map for a good long while, knowing I would hate myself when the name came to my mind after the game. Oh well. Fun!

93--I spent too much time trying to spell Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kyrgyzstan (dang that silent z!). I really sucked at Africa.

I am quickly becoming addicted. I might just use this to practice ALL the time.

I've now worked my way up to 115. Africa and the Middle East are stilling hiding 80 more for me to either learn or remember spelling!

Definitely, maybe, probaby related posts:
