93



When time ran out, the site told me I forgot 177 countries. I didn't forget them, I just couldn't TYPE any faster! I was also tripped up by the fact that I didn't realize I was supposed to leave off "the". Still, not bad, I guess!

And yes, thank you, Animaniacs, from the bottom of my heart. :}

So this is the "Number of countries you could type in correctly in 5 minutes" quiz?

Incidentally, I recently wrote down all the countries I could think of without looking. I got about 170, but I didn't count the minutes.

When I try this quiz, I'll start with the short ones.

I got 111. Maybe I'm just a faster typist.

I got 100, and would have had more if I hadn't wasted precious time trying to figure out why the hell it wouldn't accept England, Scotland, and Wales as countries. Turns out it wants "United Kingdom." Grrrrr. On the bright side, I bet not too many people got Azerbaijan or Uzbekistan, so I feel nice and smug. Too bad I couldn't remember how to spell Kyrgyzstan in time.

Sheesh, even Wikipedia says England, Scotland and Wales (and possibly Northern Ireland) are countries. Specifically, they are constituent countries of the sovereign island country of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Things have gotten complicated over there. But even the British Prime Minister's website calls 'em countries!

"Even Wikipedia"?
Wikipedia claims that Orange County, California, and Michigan's Upper peninsula are countries.
