75. That was tougher than I thought it would be due to the time limit. With a couple more minutes I'm pretty sure I would have broken 100.

I got 87. It was getting to be more of a typing and spelling exercise since I was thinking JUST fast enough to not have any giant pauses. I'm certain we did this a loooooong time ago (maybe even on the old ezboard) and I'll say now what I said then - being in the Model UN certainly helps. ;-)

Either this doesn't work with my browser or there's some weird method for entering the names that I didn't get--probably the former. So I never entered anything, but I typed 91 names. I'm pretty sure they're all real countries but I may have had spelling errors and I don't know how the program responds to variants--for example, I had typed "Great Britain" and I saw "United Kingdom" on the list, so I don't know if I would have gotten credit for that or had to waste time retyping or what.

Yeah, I really hated the input model. And spelling definitely counts. I had all of South America typed in before I noticed that my misspelling of Uruguay was blocking the input. It also seemed that things like leading white space or an extra blank between multi-word names will fail. I spent more of the 5 minutes fighting with the UI than coming up with countries.

We did have something similar not that long ago. This thread (The W) from Spring 2007 began with a link to a "Name All Fifty States" challenge, but Post #27 (by JayJayDean) introduced a link to a challenge to name all 192 U.N. member states in ten minutes.

81, not bad, although when I look at the list I can't believe some that I missed....

Typing exercise and spelling in some cases that slowed me down..

Only 57. Very frustrated. I forgot Poland. I feel just like John Kerry.

76. I'm not a good typist, but I am still mad at hell at myself for not doing better. Geography is what I studied the most in school.

I'm assuming he hosted the show yesterday (Wednesday), making it three consecutive shows, plus the guest appearance on PTI Monday afternoon. Is he the new host of the show? I'm watching it today, and he's doing a pretty damn good job, I think.
