I was asleep, osso, but now I am awake and heading for the door.

But not before posting this image...

Who can ever forget Mobutu Sese Seko and his trademark leopardskin?

Those were the days.

How 'bout South America? I know South America.

Never looked at maps of Africa enough for the names to stick with the shapes. I know the region, but I don't always know the shape, or the rivers.

That's not possible. I looked on the chart and it said a score of 75 indicates brain death.

I know you are alive, k.

I would assume, since you are the geography king, Francis, that you aced the test?

Good show, old boy.

I am not surprised at your success, set. You seem like a man who can tell the difference between Belize and Burkina Faso.

Maybe i should try again.

You've done enough for one day. Take a rest.

But thanks for reviving this thread. I am going to refresh my memory.

OK, i saw a link for Central America down below the world map.

I got 37 out of 42--damned Guatamala and Honduras screwed me up--but i did get Belize right (that's a no brainer).

Off to do the Caribbean Islands.
