Seventh graders are stupid. Of course, in all fairness, if you would of asked me after graduating from college to name all the countries in Africa, I probably would have failed too. But if I would have known the test was coming, then I would have studied... probably...

In their defense, I always felt that Africa was the hardest continent you could draw in the final round of "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?"

I loved that show!

oh yeah! i completely agree! but didn't it just piss you off when the people couldn't even get the united states??? i always thought south america was pretty flippin easy as well. i mean, it's only 12 countries...come on, people!

on a related note, how about the computer game "where in the ... is carmen sandiego?" i think we had "world," "united states," and "time" at home, which was a real blast, actually. but i remember playing it in tug first with mrs. heslinga...oh, the good old days.

yeah, Africa in the final round would suck! a close second would have been eastern Europe, with all it's -vokias, and -anias. so confusing.

I kinda miss good ole Mrs. H!! somtimes I still dream of mind-benders and wake up in a cold sweat. . .

I loved the computer games!! I wish I had an updated version to play now... Then I could study even less that I do now.
