Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

I had a little advantage of giving map quizzes to my students so I had to know Africa/Europe/South America. SE Asia was rough for me as are all those small bull**** islands in the carribean. And I forgot plenty of LOL ones and I can't spell.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

I used the sporcle geography quizzes to learn all of the countries some time ago. Pretty sure I can still get at least 200 cold. Let's find out!

edit: There are 195, which bodes poorly for my proposition. I thought it was like 210.

Some other fun geography ones:
- What are the most populous countries of the world as projected in 2050?
- What countries have the most airports?

easier to get places by air because of the terrain.

Why do all the large countries have so many airports as well? It bottles my mind.

I still think the coolest sporcle is guys that have started a game with Shaq. Just some ridiculously obscure names on that list.
