Hmmm. Anyone else find it interesting that they had maps ready to go with the exact countries that everyone was mentioning all labeled in Australia? How'd they do that?

Looks bogus to me....

Its not. ALOT of people have troubles locating states and capitals much less other countries.


BWA, alot of that is because alot of people rely on GPS navigation systems to tell them how to get where they want to go.

I know a lot of people don't know where countries are. But the fact that every country mentioned by the 'random people' was always labled as Australia on the map.

Funny,

Not sure if it was staged or not but it is sad if people really don't know. I don't remember Geography being thought during highschool (when I entered the Educational system here in the US). Is that during middle school?

Take this quiz... I kinda sucked got 62 out of 87

57 and I really don't know the middle east at all. Anything ending with a 'stan is a mystery to me, although I was suprised at how many I got right.

I got 69, and am lucky to get that high.

Those quizes are fun. 100% on the USA and the World quizes. 74/162 on Africa.

Nope. It was Australia. You can see Papau New Guinea above it and New Zealand below it on the map. (New Zealand should be a little more to the right, though.)
