I think that Finland should still have the Viipuri area and Karelia that it lost to the Soviets cos the way it was done so was so unfair

I think Finland should have access to the arctic sea as well (and the nickel mines?) in the north. If the US is going to go through on its long term plans of incorporating ukraine and georgia into the NATO and splitting up Russia into parts, Finland should seize the opportunity and regain some lost territories.

Sep 16, 2017
That's because Burma changed its name officially to the Republic of the Union of Myanmar in 1989, which was after thousands of people were killed in the suppression of a popular uprising. Or, in shorter terms, it's the same country.

These are some of my favorites. I wish you had them all. Perhaps in time you will. We're now up to 80 countries, only 116 more to go. Sporcle actually has a quiz with all the shapes on it, but it is very difficult to find, and the definition accuracy is not as good as here.

I did the same, then had a flash of insight. I pictured Ecuador in my mind and then realized that one of the islands to the left has one of the distinctive shapes of the Galapagos. Hard to notice if you're not looking for it.

Should have gotten the first and third though. D'oh! .. 1st one just couldn't place, and the 3rd I think I would have gotten except it looked like an island. Should have seen that pointy tip on the bottom left... that kind of gives away that it's a peninsula. Doesn't look like coastline. But I didn't look closely enough.
