    You've got 8 minutes. How many European countries can you name?
    http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/europe

    10 minutes to name as many African countries as possible.
    http://www.sporcle.com/games/g/africa

    I got 38/47 on Europe, but only 37/54 on Africa. Sporcle is a great site, if you've never heard of it, to pass some time. They have quizes on just about ever topic.

    Wow, that was a little harder than I thought. I got 42 out of 47 on Europe.
    I remembered all but 3 of them, but had a real time with some of the spelling!
    The map helped.

    Africa was much harder for me. I only got 45.

    They give you 5 minutes on the South American countries.... I thought it would be easy. The spelling caused me a few problems.. I got 11/12, forgetting Suriname (no way I'd remember it).

    I knew there was a reason I memorised the "Countries of the World" song from Animaniacs one productive day when I was at university.
