Are you insinuating there's a lot of tits in Texas?


There is at least one. And when there is one tit, you are likely to find another just like it.

I first used it when the African Football championships were on. Was getting confused between Mali and Malawi, amongst others. ;) Also learned where all the Stans actually are.

For a bit more of an international flavour you could try this one.

This thread jogged my memory of this and I played it for the first time in ages.
I got 150,222 points, was able to drop the pins within and average of 228 km of the city mentioned. (Not bad a on a laptop) screen, and placed the pins within an average of 4.2 secs.

Quiz over. You scored 24 out of 150.
Your score is 16%.

98,793
avg 885 km, 7.68 sec

I didn't think I'd do that "good". Not bad for no college education and never having been outside of the eastern US except to stick my beak into southeastern Canada a little ways, in the same region I live now.
I got to within 32 kms of Moscow, but the rest of the Russian cities destroyed my average. :dopey:
The only US questions I got were Dallas and Houston, and zero Canadian or UK questions. Otherwise I'd have done a lot better. :snooty: :lol:

Maybe a "close, but no cigar" similar task is for a USian to do the European Capitals quiz.
Funny funny fun fun. I don't remember what my first score was now, but today on the third try I'm up to 75%. Even though I can't pronounce some of them. :teef: I have northern and western Europe down pat, but I struggle mightily with eastern and southern Europe. I'll get there. I'm working through the countries of the world first. Isn't Oceania hard... :shock:
I still got 64% on my first try. Guessed by the process of elimination on many of my right answers. I doubt I'll do any better on the second try.

Yeah Oceania is tough. Try the African capitals for a further test of your pronunciation skills. :o

I'll graduate to that soon enough. When I consistently get 90% or more of the world's countries. (not counting Oceania :lol: )
