Quick typing and good spelling a definite advantage

Yes, I got 74, but it wouldn't accept Korea (wanted North and South) and as it grabbed "Niger" I hadn't realised that it ignored the "ia" I put on the
end.  Mind you, I would *never* have got "Saint Vincent and the Grenadines"!  :-)

Interesting!

I got to 99.

Reminds me of the sitcom "Friends" where the characters
have a contest to see who can name the most states
(of the USA) in seven minutes...

Took me 10 minutes to spell Bosnia and Herzegovina it didn't understand
Scotland and Wales (probably means they don't exist as country's) but there
Hadrian built a wall to keep out the men in skirts. And you have to pay to
go over the bridge to Wales.

Me geography's crap and me spellin is worse..

Ever a problem at a police stop ?

"On your way home sir ?"
"Yes"
"And where might that be sir ?"
"Um......it's over that way I think (waves and points in general
direction that car's facing)"

I used to live near a church that has a large cross on top (as many do),
but this one lit up a nice blue colour at night.

It came in rather handy when giving directions (eg to taxi drivers) when
inebriated.  "See that blue light cross thing off over there..."

Until the buggers turned it off.
