    National Geogprahic's Geo Bee, Take the Quiz, How good are you?

    Here's the website link:

    National Geogprahic's Geo Bee's website

    and I think this is a link for the apps of it (sorry, I'm a bit of a dinosaur on this stuff):

    National Geogprahic's Geo Bee's apps

    and than you can discuss it here too, using this thread.

    http://www.nationalgeographic.com/geobee/quiz/today/
    That's probably what you ment
    Can't get on the quiz of today for some reason, but yesterdays works fine for me:
    http://www.nationalgeographic.com/ge...uiz/yesterday/

    Those are absolutely not the kind of questions im good at answering at, lot of weird details.

    -5400 in yesterday's quiz (apprentice mode)
    -8930 in two days ago quiz (apprentice mode)

    Latter one was surprisingly much more easy... weird kind of difficulty changes, one question about a specific indian teritory in the US (I have absolutely no idea about US geography, ffs), one question whether Afghanistan shares a border with France... lul
    Most likely a quiz made for US Americans.

    Wow you are seriously good :&
    What's killing me is the high ratio of very specific US or general American questions, I'm really bad with their topography.

    well sometimes it's nothing more than luck (as if anyone knew which american states boarder Sasketchewan...) in contrast to that, the yellowstone question killed me xD others are quite easy in political terms though, like who was a member of OPEC or who has the biggest oil output now.

    Re: National Geogprahic's Geo Bee, Take the Quiz, How good are you?

    I just gave the website link, as I figured people might want to read about it first, and then they could find the button for taking the quiz on there

    I was thinking about giving the link directly to the quiz too, but decided that people could find it from the website, meh

    as to why today's quiz doesn't work, no idea, lol

    ------------------------------------------------------

    ya, it is a national (U.S.) geo bee, and not a world one, but damn, if you've seen the televised shows of it (and those questions have been world questions, not U.S. geography questions), those U.S. kids are damn smart... unlike me, lol... meh...

    (I'm not surprised if the quizes are tailored for U.S. people; I myself have been too afriad to even look at the quizes yet, lol, as I've been watching the shows of it, and those questions are damn hard... I knew a few of them generally, lol, but that's it)

    and they all got "big aspirations":

    I want to work at CERN (super collider), and make anti-matter usable to solve energy and pollutation/radiation awaste from the world.

    i want to be secretary of state and create world peace

    etc.. etc... etc...

    I wonder if it's genius/genetics, or merely strict intense learning at very early age, or both....

    8855 at the one which start with the oil question.

    But for a site abot geography, how it is possible to answer guadelup or reunion when they ask the country you are from. Those are not countries ! They are French :-)
