there is no corollation between phonic sounds and characters, Jerry928. therefore, there is no spelling of "C".

Was Burma, now Myanmar? At least either should count (though this quiz has to lead with a letter). But why the late change? Myanmar will soon enough be a chapter best forgotten.

Both type-ins will work as always. As of May 20th, we made a site-wide change from Burma to Myanmar. At some point, we have to acknowledge that the government of Myanmar is here to stay. On JetPunk we try to see the world the way it is, not the way we wish it would be.

Myanmar is already slowly transitioning back to a non-authoritative, democracy thanks to Aung San Suu Kyi and it shows no signs of wanting to change back to Burma. Besides, Myanmar isn't some made-up word that the military randomly thought of to show how powerful they are. Myanmar and Burma are two different ways of saying the same word, and the British used Burma because it was easier to say and remember.

How come more people got Yemen, Argentina, Canada, South Africa, Spain, Venezuela, Ukraine, Kenya, South Korea, Colombia, Poland, Iraq, and Uganda than Tanzania? Since they're in order it doesn't make much sense.
