A silly geography meme

This is one of the better geography quizes I've seen online. It checks to see if you can recall the names of areas by simply seeing an unmarked map.

The hardest parts about Asia are 1) remembering how everything is spelled 2) noticing that they want you to name special administrative districts of the PRC 3) notice that they want you to name the palestinian territories 4) pick up on the political commentary of making you type Taiwan 5) finding all the tiny countries in Asia on map.

I can name 53 Asian countries in 4m 9s

Tonight we had a delicious potluck to which many awesome friends came. On the RPG front, Jim is starting a Star Wars campaign, John a short term D&D lvl 12, and my long campaign is about to start. Should be good times all around.

We also decided to start a Taboo league, which will keep statistics of everyone's Taboo-playing skills. Individuals will have a lifetime Taboo average of accurate guesses garnered as readers. We will also attempt to keep track of mis-speaks and guesses of other people's clues. A good spreadsheet is in order.

1. Grab the nearest book.

D&D Players Handbook v. 3.5

2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

The text:

"This column tells how long it takes to put the armor on in a hurry. The armor check penalty and armor bonus for hastily donned armor are each 1 point worse than normal. For example, if Tordek donned his scale mail hastily, it would take him 1 minute (10 rounds), the armor would provide only a +3 bonus to his AC (instead of +4), and his armor check penalty would be -5 (instead of -4)."
