I tried football, rugby, volleyball, handball, dodgeball, baseball, cricket, badminton, tennis, table tennis, shooting, hunting, archery, riding, croquet, hockey and ice hockey for the most popular sport (but basketball never crossed my mind). I tried Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, atheist, irreligious for the Christian question (but didn't get pagan). I tried eagle, hawk, falcon, condor, peregrine, pigeon, dove, parrot, parakeet, partridge, robin, owl, ostrich, emu and macaw but forgot about stork.

Love it. Wonder how many countries fit some combination of the answers you tried. E.g. football, Muslim, falcon = UAE. Could get quite exotic, much more than Lithuania is at least!

White storks are famous, like White egrets. There are over 400 species of owl, so forgive me if I've missed it, but I don't think there's a White owl. There are owls that are white, such as the Snowy owl, but it's not called White owl.

A White parakeet might be an albino?

The Alcohol question should say "per capita". I don't think a couple million lithuanians outdrink 145 million russians or 350 USAans, for instance :D

The Easter Granny. Classic.

The other thing that I've learnt is that basketball is popular somewhere outside North America. Who knew? (Apart from the 73% of people taking this quiz, obviously)

Score improved from 16/20 to 18/20 on this second time taking the quiz. (First time was probably over a year ago). However, such does not give me 5 stars. Ah well!

Interesting country. Lithuanian-Americans were very prominent (disproportionately so) in the establishment of physical culture in the USA in the mid-century. Walter Zagurski, the first editor of Strength and Health, which was, for at least a few decades, probably the most prominent physical culture magazine published in the USA, and AAU Mr. Americas Jules (Bacanskas) Bacon (1943) and Alan (Albert Steponitis) Stephan (1946), all, collectively, bear testament to this.

The dissolution of the huge Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and the retracted status of Lithuania from its glory when it was a Grand Duchy, trailing down to its apparent persecution by bigger powers over the last century or two, is a very intriguing and concerning one.

After all, Lithuania shared with Poland a great tradition of religious tolerance, perhaps most notably the protections of Jewish people going back to the 14th Century under Casimir the Great, which saw that area be probably the #1 haven in the world for Jews for centuries.

I should also add that the near extinction of the close-by Livonian culture and Language adds to the gravity of the diminished identity of the peoples of that area of the world. (Then again, fishermen have always had a very tough time of it.)

For me, the "animal attraction" for Lithuania is not really there, despite its uniquely attractive and striking appearance, beckon, and bouquet. But it is a mystifyingly intriguing area, perched on the Eastern edge of the Baltic Sea, and it does cast a cool spell of its own.

Mostly, to me, it is an interesting country that can best be likened to a very nice-looking family that commands respect and one with whom I would be honored to be acquainted.
