Welcome to The blog of whall

Come on in and stay a while… laugh a little. Maybe even think. Read more...

Hi, This is Wayne. This is my site, my stuff, my blog, blahblahblah. The site itself is powered by WordPress and the Scary Little theme. I thought it was cool, and I still do.

I got this in email yesterday and decided that I’m one of the stupidest people on the planet since I keep getting the countries wrong.

As you can see, I’ve been able to choose Egypt and that’s about it.  So that’s one hint you get.  That will make you 2.5% smarter than me from the outset.

One of the nice things about this little “Select-a-country” tool is that it’s a learning tool, not a contest or game.  There’s no score; there’s no time limit.  You don’t have to vote anyone else off your island and you don’t have to create back-stabbing alliances and put down your opponents.

This would be cool to have for EVERY geography.

  • United States
  • Counties within a state (or parishes in Louisiana)
  • European Countries
  • Asian Countries
  • South African Drug Areas
  • Amsterdam Hot Zones
  • Canadian Beer Stops
And lo, the people did comment thus:

    I did WAY better than I thought. Yay, me! It’s so weird, though- I thought UAE was right next to Yemen… Just bizarre… Plus, once you get Sudan, Chad is fairly easy, etc.
    Still- I am pretty pathetic, overall!

    The Mac has a really cool game like this called “World of Where” that can teach you the countries from all the continents… as well as capitols and other stuff. Very cool. And very necessary considering there are school kids who can’t find Texas on a map.

    The reason you didn’t get a lot of them right is because these countries are just generally called “People Who Hate Us” for simplicity’s sake. (Sometimes alternated with “Those Crazies Over There”). The fact that they’re individual countries is just a sidebar. 🙂

Want to comment?

Hey, we all want to share our voice. And I particularly love comments, especially if you took the time to read my blog entry. I'll take the time to read your comment, I swear! But due to spammers, robots, and the fact that I want my blog to be PG rated, I need to approve the comments. This should be same day, but please don't get mad if it takes me a while to approve the comment.
