Geography genius–not!

[NOTE: I'm not sure why this post has so much blank space in it. It has something to do with the text I copied to display the results. I can't seem to fix it, so just scroll down a bit.]

I got this from Callimachus. I’m not usually all that great on geography, but maybe blogging and reading so much in order to blog has helped (or maybe the test isn’t that all-fired difficult after all).

At any rate, I’m not as good as Mr.-Done-With-Mirrors-Smarty-Pants. But I did pretty well.

Geography Genius

You scored 91% knowledge, and 0% confusion

Excellent! This is the highest score. You are very knowledgeable about the world. You didn’t answer any (or many) of the questions with seriously incorrect answers. Great work. You are now ready to write your own Geography Knowledge test. Don’t forget to vote on this test!

Test is found here.

    Hi #NAME#. Just found your site via shoes. Although I was looking for shoes I was glad i came upon your site. Thanks for the read!

  2. KRM Says:

    84%!!!! But compared to some of you, I suck :-(

  3. Jen Says:

    I scored 97% which was better than 80% of my age group. How do you find out which ones you missed?

  4. Ymarsakar Says:

    I think you can guess and still get 50%.

  5. Van der Leun Says:

    Suspiciously enough, I scored:

    “You scored 91% knowledge, and 0% confusion “


    Perhaps this means I can go to work for the Neo Test Taking Service.

    I got 100% on the geography quiz, but I obviously still haven’t learned to proofread my posts before posting (note the capitalization error and the spelling of “certain”) doh!

  7. eddie t Says:

    Just wanted to brag, i took that geography test and scored 100%! A few of those questions were ones that I was NOT AT ALL cetain about , like which of those former soviet republics Tashkent is now in. Whew!

    I’m a little surprised.

    Well, I didn’t do as well as expected, but I’m not a complete dunce about geology.

    Good Job
    You scored 64% knowledge, and 18% confusion

    Could be worse.

  10. Lugnut Says:

    Okay then, I’ll post my score.

    70% knowledge, 6% confusion.

  11. Alex Says:

    I got a 94/0. Either we’re all really good at geography or only people who scored well want to post their scores and tell people about it… Also, 74, my 94 outscored 73% of my (significantly younger) age group, which lends credence to your boomer theory.

  12. camojack Says:

    Very Smart
    You scored 88% knowledge, and 6% confusion
    You are very smart. You know a lot of details about the world. You have probably traveled a bit and were paying attention along the way. Also, you didn’t choose any (or many) seriously incorrect answers. Great job on that part.

    All true…being a genius (on da ‘Net) does have some advantages.

  13. Joan Says:

    I got “very smart”, but I can’t remember the percentages because I was looking at the HTML code for neo.

    Neo: I think if you remove the “cellpadding=20″ part of the first line, or change 20 to something like 2 or 3, the big white space will go away. It’s worth a try, if you care.

  14. 74 Says:

    WITHOUT referring to anything but my rusty brain, I pulled a 94 / 0. Interestingly, I only outscored 66% of my age group. Since I am approximately n-n’s age, I have a hunch that one the whole, us leading-edge baby boomers do much better than the younger set. :-)

  15. Ymarsakar Says:

    Google Earth Rocks. With that program I can now get access to satellite quality maps, giving me a bird’s eye view of the Gaza Strip.

    Very enlightening. Given how everything on Israel’s borders are green, well ordered plots, and everywhere else is either desert or tenements.


    Then there is Iraq, it is so useful to have a zoomable map to look at all these cities, streets, and popular battle sites.

  16. Ymarsakar Says:

    You scored 70% knowledge, and 6% confusion
    Well done. You have a good basic knowledge about the world. You still need a bit of study, but nice work. Also, you didn’t choose any obviously wrong answers. Great job on that part. Don’t forget to vote on this test!

    My test tracked 2 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:
    You scored higher than 15% on knowledge
    free online dating free online dating
    You scored higher than 49% on confusion

    Aww, I didn’t master Confusion. I thought I had gotten that stracked.

    I got 88%, which earned the same comment as neo-neocon’s score earned, but only beat 25% of those my sex and age. What’s up with that? I’ve always thought I was smarter than the average bear. My guess is that most dropped out before the end when they saw how hard it was. It was hard!

    Dude, I scored 100%. Neener neener. :D

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
