Someone sent me this quiz, try it out! Give your brain a jumpstart...
I named 75 countries. The timer starts as soon as the page completes loading, so be ready you only have 5 minutes!

I am an idiot! That was hard!

The timer right there in your face is scary. I was only able to name 14! How embarassing! I almost forgot to name the US and that's where I live!

Thanks for the link, it was fun.

Now I have to go practice naming countries!

I only got 44!

I thought "piece of cake"....yeah, right... icon_redface.gif

All of a sudden I would go blank and I couldn't stop staring at the timer! I would start to panic and then couldn't think of ANY!

Fun!

I got to 50 and the time ran out. 5 minutes seems like a lot...until you're actually doing this! LOL I hardly even named any African or Asian countries yet. Fun though! icon_biggrin.gif

haha, glad to know you guys enjoyed it.

i didn't even realize my hands were shaking until after the 5 minutes was up!

i wonder why our minds go blank when we're pancking, anyone know the scientific explanation to that?

Okay, I used to be a geography whiz! In high school I could name every country in the world and place it on the map! I only named 69 on this little quiz... icon_cry.gif

I'm blaming it on the timer! icon_evil.gif

It was fun though, TFS!

I can't access the quiz, work has put a block on it!! icon_mad.gif

I'm gonna give it a go when I get home. I don't think I'll get anywhere near 75 though, that's pretty good!!!
