There are 50 European countries and 50 states in America. Seems pretty fair. I tried looking up how many provinces there are in Europe, but I'm guessing its pretty high.


Yeah but the thing is that there is no point for a non-American to learn all 50 states. I took a quiz just now and I could only name 25 (well I couldn't spell Massachusetts so 26). Now, I know the rest of the states in the sense that when mentioned I remember but it's not information of any use to me from an international standpoint.

They're not countries, their names aren't on globes. Therefore unfair. (I'm mostly just pissed that nobody seems to know where The Netherlands is, though I suppose I should be glad because this means they'll never see the attack coming.)


The true test is naming African or Asian countries.

wait - you aren't in euro-disney? i know you are euro-disney, i saw "in bruges"!

i think that englishman pretty well nailed it (except for utterly misplacing new york). i'm kinda sad we don't have anyone here to properly go off the handle at "west spain".

I'm so going to call Belgium Euro-Disney from now on.

I can't really point and laugh at these things, since I know about 3 states, but also very little east of Poland.

Topography was one of my favourite subjects in primary school, and at one stage I knew all the African capitals and major cities, but my mind doesn't seem to retain any information I don't use regularly... :-/

That is pretty amazing. The skin really sells it. They've managed to make it look like it isn't made of a silicon rubber sheet, or a hard plastic, like most CGI people. I wonder how long that takes. Do they draw every little hair on his neck, or is there software that kind of... clone stamps it on?
