That's the fastest I could come up with. Dunno if you can go under 35
The race was more fun, but I'd probably still be mad about missing the little stuff that doesn't show up on the map well.
typed in right as clock ticked to 1:30
I noticed DPRK is not accepted for North Korea (Stands for Democratic People's Republic of Korea).
In some other quizzes DPRK works, not sure if it should here, just a query?
A couple notes and corrections:
- Sri Lanka does not border India.
-Add Bahrain. Saudi Arabia borders Bahrain on Passport Island.
-Add Denmark/Canada border.
Like would have to be the top 20 countries with most borders. I mean the time and math needed would be crazy.
edit 1: 125 now
edit 2: NO I WAS SO CLOSE I GOT 154 😭
edit 3: FINALLY 157 WITH 18 SECONDS LEFT FINALLY THAT BORDER BADGE IS IN MY COLLECTION
Optimal solution by fewest keystrokes AND fewest word count (35 Words || 207 Characters):
USA Guatemala CostaRica Brazil Peru DC!R* SouthAfrica Malawi** Ethiopia Cameroon Togo Guinea Senegal Libya SaudiArabia Syria Iran UK France Spain Italy Austria Denmark*** Sweden^ Romania Serbia FYROM India Laos Indonesia Brunei ROK Russia Tajistan [sic]
* ! signifies using the left arrow key to type R in the middle of D_C to also get DRC as well as DR at once
** Interchangeable with Zambia
*** or Germany
^ or Norway
(Quick note: TWM03 had made the conclusion that an optimal solution using PRC for China didn't exist; I now agree, but would welcome anyone who proves the claim wrong)
i think its one of the shortest
But there's only 156 answers total.
Also a curiosity: why isn't the Canada-Denmark border on Hans island considered?
Countries having many borders or short names: China, Russia, Laos, India, Iran, Serbia, Greece, Libya, Mali, Niger, Chad, Ethiopia, DRC, Peru, Brazil.
Remaning countries: Uzbekistan, Sweden, Romania, Guinea, Togo, Cameroon, Zambia, Guatemala, Costa Rica.
