Geography quiz

As a geography geek, I had to take this quiz, which J posted at her blog.

I made it to level 11, but didn't score enough to get to 12, the final level. This earned me a 121 IQ. I'd do it again but I do have alife to lead.

I failed at level 6, what a shame...
The time factor made me nervous for sure, but I think I must be exploring the world map more closely in the future...
*shakes head*

I've definitely got some holes in my knowledge as well, like most of Africa apparently. Oh, and all of Australia that isn't Melbourne or Sydney.

There are a couple things that are rather unfair. Every time it gives you a Pacific island you are in big trouble because the map is so small you can't see any of them. If I could have had any landmarks at all, I might have done better out there.

boooo this got me in trouble at work!! i only have a travel IQ of 100. :( my biggest problems were putting cities on the wrong sides of eg Australia and Canada (7,000 mile differences!!).

but now everyone in my office is playing. so. you can think of yourself as a very influential person.

that was hard! i got level 6 or 7. the time part and the lack of detail on the map was what made it difficult.

I only got to 6 - I couldn't find certain places and took time to look- the islands paca mentioned, for instance- BUT - my own fault- I put a couple of things in the right country but on the wrong side of it. That was me and only me.

I'm glad I was able to bring a publishing house to its knees, moonbat.

Yeah, I agree, it's hard. I later tried the world pictures one and that thing ate my for lunch. I'm actually supposed to recognize the Somali Civil Warm monument?
