Personally I have a specific order I type them in, that way I know I'm not forgetting anything (all the micro European nations together, pairing countries with the same letter, etc.) and after a lot of repetition my time just gets faster and faster.

After going to look up a video why that part of South Africa is sometimes grey and pops up with France, I didn't expect to find the geopolitical craziness that is the world.

I always thought UN decided on the 196ish countries, but seems a ton of people don't like to acknowledge others existence. Some for very bad reasons others for historical reasons, but yeah, I recommend it on YT, def helped me understand a ton of these small countries and why they exist, like Gambia, Lesotho, and Eswatini.

@ooftownroad yeah

it took me 2 days to learn the countries, but that was with a 123 country head start. I already knew 94 flags when I started learning them. Been practicing for a month, and I only know 26 capitals, 126 flags, and a few languages.

Also turns out that there are over 1,000 tribes in Papua New Guinea, and most of them have their own language!

Just a note for Quizmaster that the factoid #766 is no longer correct. In certain areas of the state of Oregon, consumers are now permitted to pump their own gas. These are places in remote parts of eastern Oregon. I was surprised the last time I was there, and asked the attendant about this. She said that the law had been changed a few years ago.

Yo, I can literally type in Russia, Lithuania, U.S.A., and Mexico in like, 10 seconds. But I still miss about 5-30 countries with this speed. 😕
