I got 58

You need to get a job.

What's that?

Does this entail leaving this spot? HERETIC!

Should be "how many can you spell"

Also bogus that you can't put "USA" or "England" that wasted several moments as I was thinking "what the heck? I'm pretty sure the USA is a country? Did I miss some recent announcment?"

It's "united states" and "united kingdom"

I got 84.

But I missed a lot of time trying to spell them correctly. Also if you repeat one you have to take the time to erase it.

43, but I didn't use the site. Just put 5 mins on a timer and started listing them off. Made me realize that I don't know the names of many African, South American, or Asian countries.

I got 58 but I kept misspelling Kazakhstan so I think I should get 59 like the OP because there is no correct spelling for it.
Things that are so interesting:

I got 76.

I spelled French Guiana "French Guinea."
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

shoot, you take spelling off the table and it become a lot easier. My problem wasn't nameing them so much as spelling them.

Nevermind, that post is satire. Thank God. I was looking for one that's almost as shocking though.

According to the judges on that infamous Ms. America video, only in in five can find America on a world map.

That seems to be inaccurate though.

National Geographic says that 11% can't find the United States.

That's still 1 in 10 people. Making us certifiably retarded.

Even if you knew all 200 or so countries by heart, you would run out of time trying to spell them all.
