Me too, with 2:30 remaining. I don't usually boast like this but this time it feels quite an achievement, especially with Guinea-Bissau

Cool quiz, I wanted to suggest a quiz.You could do a countries of the world quiz spelled backwards. I think it would be a fun challenge for me and most other users.

I have no idea what you could have been seeing, even trying to see thing which could fall under the "sick" category.

Now you got me checking all the pics. Doesn't Egypt - or River Nile rather - look like a silhuette of a chimp? I can easily see her eye (a lake area?) and mouth (starting just above Abu Simbel). The bend of Nile (north of Luxor) looks like a protruding nostril or something else extra. ;) BTW. If you ever get a chance to go on a Nile cruise, go, GO! It it the most amazing experience.. felt like a four-day time travel.. <3

yea I can see it, you know there is a word for seeing faces in things, pareidolia (did have to look up the exact word though, not one easy to remember..). Basically meaning (seeing) an imagine besides/on top of the actual depicted one (para idol)

If you get bored google pareidolia and check images :) some are amazing others very funny

For the penultimate picture, I believe China and India both take up a higher percentage of the image than Nepal.

I mean, Nepal is centered directly and the middle so it becomes very obvious. And they didn't show the whole country of India or China as well.

Well, those aren't the rules. The rule is which country takes up a greater percentage of the image.

Yes, and Nepal takes up the greatest percentage of the four countries you can see in the picture.

Level 67
Mar 15, 2019
Nope! I was curious and bored at work, so I did a quick superposition of the borders over the image and some rough calculations, and I've got Nepal taking up roughly 38% of the image, China taking up about 36%, India about 25%, and Bangladesh has the remaining >1%.

That's what you get with satellite images, you will always get the countries they border in the picture aswell (besides island countries). Only if a country were the exact shape as the picture this wouldnt occur ( apart from zooming in so much you dont see borders at all, but that makes it too hard to guess in most cases)
