I only got 120...I used Animaniacs. They really should give you more than five minutes. Oh, and there`s only 196 countries! 270? I don`t think so.

`erm why are people moaning about the UK, England isn`t a country`

Actually England is a country, along with Scotland, while Wales is a principality and Northern Ireland is a province. However, the UK is a `country`, under another definition.

The problem is that the quiz is inconsistent. You COULD consider all those other places to be countries, like Guernsey (which is actually a crown dependency) etc, but that would mean you`d really also have to accept England, Scotland, Wales and NI.

Tobago is NOT a separate country. It`s Part of Trinidad & Tobago. A lot of the "countries" listed aren`t countries at all.

This quiz sucks.

How are the US Virgin Islands a country? They`re called the "US" Virgin Islands for a reason!?!?

Other than that, 27. My brain always freezes up on these types of things and besides, I`m a terrible speller.

I got 44. If given a map I know I could name twice that in the least, but, you know how it is :)

A minute and a half into it I got that kind of brain-block feeling and I couldn`t think of anything.

I`m content with missing all of the piss-ass islets Britain left scattered across the world, the tiny unspellable-under-pressure European countries, and the tiny countries all over Africa,

but it`s depressing when you see at the end that you forgot a few big ones like Poland, Afghanistan, Iraq, Argentina, and The Netherlands.

Stupid.

Wales, Scotland weren`t on there. Neither was The Gambia. Also, it accepted United States instead of United States of America.

"They`re obviously using a wide definition of country"

They`re using a wide definition of country and England, Scotland and Wales Still don`t get classed as countries?

This is ridiculous. It tells you there`s 300-odd countries, and yet a huge number of those are not even countries. And if you`re going to count them as countries, then why the hell will you accept "United Kingdom" but not "Great Britain" or even "England", "Northern Ireland", "Scotland" and "Wales" which are still defined as countries.

Pile of poo written by retards.

Most of them *are* countries by some definition of country. There are constant debates about what being a "country" entails.

Taiwan is recognised by 23 UN members as a country.
Wastern Sahara by over 40.

You could call either of those countries if you wanted to.

You could call England a country, or not.
You could call Abu Dhabi a country (it once was, prior to the formation of the UAE).

etc.

They`re obviously using a wide definition of country, like wikipedia does on their "list of countries". 1/10 of them is disputed in some way shape or form.

39 in total. Pretty good for a 14 year old.
But really, why is South Africa a country, when North isn`t. Is this actually true, am I actually that dumb? That would be a sad day for me. :(

I got 71, but I didn`t `forget` the others as it says - I just didn`t have time to type them all in, heh.

And indeed you`re right gigglygiggle, none of those are countries, as far as I`m aware.

Also `Liechtenstein` is spelt like that, for those of you who didn`t know.

I got 88 in 5 minutes, but not enough time.

I can`t do it geographically so it gets pretty hard. I did it via the animaniacs song. ;) (The animaniacs song has some mistakes, for example Abu Dhabi is not a country, it`s an Emirate in the United Arab Emirates.
