DDD (11/29) - Test your geography skills

Here's a fun way to enhance your geography skills as well as represent your country or state. GeographyOlympics.com has entertained over 300,000 people from 179 countries since it launched two years ago. Here's how it works: Pick the country you represent. If you reside in the United States, you also indicate which state you live in. You are given 200 seconds and the names of 10 countries. Your mission: match each country name with the correct country on a map of the world in the given time frame. Sounds easy, but it's not! My best score so far is only a measly 5 out of 10, which is only just above average. In fact, I brought the US and Pennsylvania average down by a little bit; the site calculates with country and states really know their geography.
The site has recently received much world press, so you may experience some errors due to the high server demand. Click this post title and give it a try!
