Can you find me an authorative source that states that sri lanka is not an island? Cause all I keep finding is that it is an island nation, which is seperated from india. (And that it was centuries ago that that landbridge was passable by foot. I am not sure if tides were taken into account, but you would think there would ve been mentions of it. Maybe if people have passed it, they didnt mind wading a bit?)

Hope it helps :)
Costa Rica, Guatemala, USA, Brazil, Peru, Sweden, Syria, Senegal, Gabon, Niger Congo, Algeria, Sudan, Somalia, Malawi, South Africa, Ghana, Liberia, South Korea, China, Russia, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Austria, Italy, France, Spain, UK, Romania, Serbia, Greece, Haiti. And last one left that doesn't get tagged before, Uzbekistan.
USA, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Haiti does NA
Brazil and Peru do South America (SA can also mean south africa, dont want confusion)
After the americas, I do russia, china, india, malaysia, indonesia, thailand or vietnam, and then north/south korea (either one works cuz south korea is not covered by russia or china).
I then do turkey, saudi arabia, and turkmenistan, which covers the whole middle east apart from israel and lebanon. I always do lebanon by itself at some point (it's generally last for me).
For europe, i do spain, france, germany, uk, ukraine, and liechtenstein and monaco by themselves. Italy covers vatican and san marino as well, and i do serbia and greece to clear out the remaining few, and sweden by itself or to cover norway if it hasnt been covered.
For africa, I do Algeria, chad, congo (as typing just 'congo' covers both DRC and Republic of the Congo, and so all those borders)
See next comment
South africa covers all the southern countries, and Malawi sticks out so i have to do that seperate.
Egypt has to be done seperately, and will give israel as well.
After all that, you may be stuck wondering why you have one country left if you forgot one of the tiny ones (Brunei, East Timor, Liechtenstein, Monaco, or Lebanon).
Thats how i mainly do it, and my fastest time is 44 seconds (ive gotten 44 about 3 times, but never beaten it :( )
Forgot to mention equatorial guinea, but its much faster to cover that using cameroon or gabon.
might not make people happy but I think this calls for a reset, cause people will get the badge without effort.
I was nearly to forgot liechtenstein
USA + guatemala + costa rica + haiti does whole North America
russia china india indonesia thailand iran southkorea sweden germany france spain italy romania hungary austria greece bosnia serbia uk ALL YOU NEED ENJOY
I had a 156/157 score 4 seconds before the end. I was not able to make out which country I had not typed. I paused the quiz and started thinking... I started thinking of really small countries. Suddenly I remembered I had not typed neither of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I knew it was Liechtnstein but I only had 1 second left! I got to another tab, typed the word Liechtenstein, copied it and when I resumed my quiz, I immediately pressed Control+V to paste the word... and it worked! I got a 157/157!
Got it with planning and 5 secs left. Probbaly much faster ways but I go Americas - Africa - Europe - Asia
Asia - north korea, china, india, russia, uzbekistan, iran, saudi arabia, syria, laos, malaysia, indonesia
South America - brazil, peru
North America - guatemala, canada, costa rica, haiti
Africa - senegalm guinea, burkina faso, algeria, chad, egypt, ethiopia, congo, zambia, south africa, gabon
Europe - (russia), sweden, uk, ukraine, greece, serbia, austria, italy, germany, france, spain
Senegal, Togo, Liberia, Libya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Cameroon, Zambia, South Africa.
I am pretty proud...
There's bound to be a faster one, has anyone found it?
With this I got it in 38 seconds.
not in this order but I think i got it by typing these countries:
germany finland russia china india laos indonesia brunei gabon gambia luxembourg serbia greece turkey saudi arabia mali malawi south africa vatican monaco brazil peru honduras mexico panama haiti guinea romania albania serbia austria sanmarino lebanon
USA Brazil Peru Guatemala CostaRica UK France Spain Italy Germany Russia Sweden ROK India Indonesia Laos Brunei Iraq UAE Oman Guinea Libya Togo Senegal Syria SouthAfrica Cameroon DC!R Austria Ethiopia Malawi Serbia Romania FYROM Iran Tajistan [sic] (207 keystrokes).
Here ! signifies pressing the left key to get DRC at the same time as getting DR for the first time.
I was surprised that Qatar borders the UAE - where does this happen? It also surprises me that even though PRC for China is only 3 letters, there is no optimal solution that uses it.
Hope this helped,
If you cannot finish it, that's your problem, 90 seconds is a lot of time.
