Lately I've spent a lot of time over at Sporcle. It's a fun way to test and enhance your knowledge - do you know the countries of South America? The Capitals of Europe? All the NFL teams? How about Pokemon characters or Tom Hanks movies? Can you name all the sports at this year's Olympics or the instruments of an orchestra? It's really addictive.

I hate you Ulf... REALLY hate you. You have stolen a lot of hours from me...

Please put them on a x-mass card and send them back to me.

Interesting! Thanks.

I tried Countries of the World and got 104 of the 195 countries before the time was up.

Seems to make one really addictive. I'm definitely not going there .
