this an sporcle have wasted lots of my time.  i've been able to name all 345 college basketball teams, the top 100 and 200 us cities and top 1000 (a little lenient there, take the quiz and find out).  the top 100 metro ares, the top 100 media markets, all the damn presidents and so on.  fucking addictive.

But I bet you can't name the top 100 grossing movies of all time, so what you're really telling me is that you don't know jack  ;D

I've been working on the Capitals Quiz.

http://www.jetpunk.com/quizzes/name-world-capitals.php

It's tough. Like, quite tough. I'm up to 142, which is really good in my mind, but I've only progressed that far from the 100 or 110 that I knew on my first try. So it's not much improvement.

I suggest all yall have some learning the name of a capital city in a country you've barely heard of.

I'm up to 191. I feel really compelled to visit Ougadougou, Burkina Faso, just so I know first hand that it's not totally a made up name.

Wow nice! I was up to something around 155 or 157 but then I kind of drifted away. I'd love to finish learning them all.

no.  but if i had the inclination.  i just completed a quiz on all the nba starters for the 2012 season.  i haven't watched an nba game in quite a few years.  i still follow it, but still.  i really need to do the countries and capitals more since apparently i have so much free time
