As a U.S. citizen, I learned all 50 states their capitals. I remember getting a perfect grade on my geography test. Now at the age of 56, I doubt I can remember them all let alone the capitals.

As an American, I think a more impressive feat would be to try and name all the countries in Africa.

I think I could maybe get 10, but I think some of the ones I think I know aren't countries anymore.



You should try this interactive quiz on the middle east, it made me realise how appaling my geography was but I got there in the end.

I scored an 82% on that one.

I will admit I started it over. I initially thought the little red circles were a multiple choice. Once I figured out they weren't, I started over and did much better. I kept wondering why they were in the wrong places.

I was working my way through the European country one, but my computer was lagging out on the drag and drop. I missed Sweden because it froze out on me.

Then it froze on me just as I was lining up Croatia.

That one was easy because you just had to line up coast lines and rivers and the borders of previous countries like a puzzle.

I'll have to take another shot at it with Chrome.

It is a bit of a giveaway with some of the coastal ones yes but it is the ex soviet ones that get a little tricky.

I got 87% on the ME. As for the States, pretty easy. We study those up here too. Well, we used to.

We had a social studies teacher who took us around the world and our tests and grades were determined by studying and naming the major nations and rivers of most of the continents. I remember doing Europe, South America, and Africa. I'm sure we also did the Middle East and Asia, but I don't recall those tests specifically like I do the others.

American here, I could probably get most of them, as I can visualize them on a map.
And, unlike a certain US weatherman, I can find Hawaii on a map.

I'd be hard pressed to name most of the countries in Africa....most have changed names since I was in school.
Europe would be much easier, save the countries new since the USSR ceased to exist.
Asia would be fairly easy, as well, I think.

I wonder how the map reading skills are amongst ATSers around the world.

ehhh... I got 3 wrong in Europe. Damned former Soviet Bloc countries in the Balkans threw me off and I'm embarrassed to say I totally forgot the existence of San Marino. I got 2 wrong in the ME but really it was only 1 because the damned dot wqas so small for Qatar I somehow missed clicking the correct spot. I'm trying to find the interactive Africa map I used to pull out for my kids. That one is hard.

I'll be honest and say "barely any". I know Hawaii is one, simply because I always got that wrong when I was younger. Texas because that's really all we hear about. Washington and California. Illinois!!! I know that one because I used to believe that Chicago was the state.

Yes, all of them.

I can also name all the counties in the British Isles and all the cantons in Switzerland.

Don't ask me anything about US politics.
