Well, I'm kinda proud of myself, I got 370,081
travel IQ 112.
But Spiegel, you just kick ass!
I find that I know the general location of most of the hard countries. Europe was actually harder for me than it should have been because it was so small - try picking out Austria in a hurry! I didn't get an Italy-heavy set, though, I think it only had Rome and Milan. Of course with places I've never heard of in India and China, I end up just picking the middle and crossing my fingers.
I saw some clip of Carrie Underwood, an American Idol contestant, appearing on Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader. I think the question was where in Europe is Budapest, and she said she thought Europe was a country. Then she said she knew that wherever Budapest is they speak French. Then she said France isn't a country. If I were her I wouldn't open my mouth unless I was singing. It was painfully embarrassing to watch and hard to imagine such ignorance.

Well that's funny, I got an the IQ of 112 which I think was down to learning South American countries in geography and my knowledge of European football, that helps me nail down places like Montenegro, Andorra and Slovakia. Capa Verde and the Battle of Trafalgar threw me off by about 2000 miles. They should do away with the countries when asking for landmarks like the leaning tower of pisa, since you can't go far wrong clicking anywhere in Italy.
Oh boy... now I REALLY feel sheepish about my geographically challenged status! Holy Cow, this child isn't even 2 years old yet!!!
Stepford Pod caught on live television malfunctioning, stringing random words together as memory chip fries out.
"Recently polls have shown a fifth of Americans can't locate the U.S. on a world map. Why do you think this is?"
Miss Teen South Carolina 2007: "I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because some people out there in our nation don't have maps and I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and uh the Iraq everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the US, or should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future...." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQdhMSEqhfg
