Countries of the World

Earlier this year I discovered this quiz.

http://www.jetpunk.com/quizzes/how-many-countries-can-you-name.php

Basically, you get twelve minutes to type in as many countries as you can think of.  I had always thought I was good at geography (A* for GCSE, aren’t I clever?) but this is really quite hard.  It turns out that I can’t spell, type fast enough or even remember countries that I have actually been to.  I am such a doofus.

It revealed some surprises – Greenland is not a country in its own right. Neither is Bermuda.

This is a bit of a time suck.  If you have things you need to get on with, keep well away from it.
