Where the crap "just keep(s) coming, like the punishing fists of a well-conditioned boxer when the bellman has fallen asleep." -- Quote stolen from Mickey
I cannot beat you. I only got five African countries which, I'm sure, hurt me against your score. I will say that my sixth grade social studies teacher would be proud. I remembered Oman is over by the ocean and got an extra point.
Yeesh, I only got 90. That's embarrassing. Some I knew but didn't get them because I was spelling them wrong, like Turkmenistan (not Turkministan.)
In the future (because you will need this knowledge one day in order to convince a serial killer to spare your live), keep in mind that the people who live in Turkmenistan are called Turkmen. I'm assuming if you just had one of them he'd be called a Turkman.The weird thing is that for almost all of the stans, you call the people just the part of the word before the stan* (Uzbeks, Tajiks, Turkmen, Kyrgyzs, Kazakhs), but if you do that with Pakistan, it's an ethnic slur, at least in England. You're not supposed to call somone from Pakistan a Paki.*Actually, this is only true for the ethnic group the country is named after. For example, you can be Kazakhstani and not be a Kazakh. I looked this up to make sure I wasn't talking out of my ass.
You're still talking out your ass, because none of that has anything to do with the quiz. You're just spouting off random information.So are you biznatches coming to my party?
Yes it does. Knowing that the people are called Turkmen makes it easy to spell Turkmenistan.
Sheesh. My brain went into shutdown mode after the first seven or eight minutes, meaning I only got 79. Boo, me.
Dang! So close. 118. You have bested me.(Initially, I typed that as "basted" rather than "bested." I don't want you to baste me.)
