    Missed two out of 19, which equals 89% correct. Mixed up Yemen and Oman (inexcusable) and Bahrain and Qatar (will give self a pass on this one).

    Thumb up +3

    That’s really good MfM. I got 4 wrong for a score of 79%.

    I mixed up Jordan and Syria. That’s embarrassing to admit.

    Boo :-(

    I got half way through before I realized it wasn’t keeping score because of my cookie settings. Still showed the correct answers though. Missed 2 or 3, the little ones.
    Fun.

    Hit 18 out of 19. I missed the damn flag, arguably one of the easiest ones! Hmmm, for not liking the place much, I sure seen to know a lot about it. Thanks Islamists, thanks a lot. I was a “guest” of the Saudi government in February of ’91 during a little dust-up known as Gulf War I or Dessert Storm. I recall our servicewomen had to cover their heads with scarves and cover their arms when traveling outside of their tents in order not to offend our “hosts”. And no bibles were allowed off post either. If it weren’t for their oil…

    19 of 19.

    Sorry phil, but the flag of Lebanon should be easy. The Cedars of Lebanon and all. I almost choked on Yemen and Oman until I remembered that it’s YOU around the horn; Yemen, Oman, United Arab Emirates.
