Y'all are a bunch of wankers!

192 member countries of the UN in 10 minutes

I was nowhere close (although I need to do it again, I got 80-some countries in 5 minutes and then I was called away before I could finish it).

Do you have one where I can generate useless opinions about random situations? That I can do.

That one is hard. I only got 78 of them the first time.

It was tough. I got 110 the first time. Apparently I'm pretty bad with small island nations, Africa, the middle east, and central asia.

I did 95 but that's only because I can't spell (htf do you spell Azerbaijan - oh, that's how). I didn't even get to Africa and barely touched Asia.

Who knew Bahamas or Aruba were not countries.

I got one by accident. Typing in D.R. it matched 6 letters into the first word.

Are there two Samoas then? It says one is a member of the UN, but the Samoa I know is an american territory.

Isn't it stupid that the European Republic gets like 20 some votes at the UN?

Isn't it stupid, NAFTA, NATO, ASEAN, ANZUS, OAS, African Union, etc., get more than one vote at the UN?

if India and China can be one country, sub-Saharan Africa should be one too.

There should be only two seats at the UN: For and Against.

Those who are For will move to Forland. Those who are Against will be relocated to Againstistan.

Alright, I finally did the whole ten minutes and I had 74 countries left.  I would have had a couple more but there were some spelling issues (like, it would have taken "the bahamas" but it didn't take just "bahamas").  Not too bad.

is my ability to remember long song lyrics what makes me a "hardcore CoT geek"?
