My favourite site right now.
 
Sporcle.com: mentally stimulating diversions

They've got all kinds of mind games here ranging in various topics from geography to history to sports to pop culture.

Stuff like....

Name the NBA's #1 draft picks for the past 30 years.

or

Name all 50 States in the USA.

or

Name all the movies that Adam Sandler has acted in.


Nice way to increase your knowledge.

Dark Knight 06-12-2009 12:08 AM

Dark Knight 06-12-2009 12:42 AM

logicz 06-12-2009 04:24 AM

My geography is awesome now because of this site.

I've been working on getting the "Countries of the World"... my best so far is 185/195.

Claudius 06-12-2009 11:10 AM

I just did that one TO, I got to 192 and I gave up with 3 minutes to go.

On the all stars one I got Redd, Boozer, Arenas, Mo Williams, Robinson and Ceballos. Couldn't think of the other ones.

The one that really got me was listing the US Presidents. I completely forgot the ones between Andrew Jackson and Lincoln and Grant and McKinley. Plus I forgot who replaced Wilson when he died in office. :sigh:

INSIDER 06-12-2009 12:16 PM

its funny how much you think you know, then all of a sudden the time starts winding down and you realize you cant think under the pressure.
who would believe that the NBA team quiz i missed 2 teams.... and for the life of me, when i saw 17 seconds left, i drew a blank... damn grizzlies and nuggets!!!
hahahahaha love it!

Claudius 06-12-2009 12:34 PM

It is the damn countdown clock.......makes you nervous.

Tommy2Tymes 06-12-2009 12:53 PM

30/30 on the teams quiz, 12/13 unlikely allstars, god damn nick van exel

Lol... glad that you're enjoying it.

My buddy (who's a high school history/geog/politics teacher) showed it to me so I figured that your tastes would run pretty similar.

Have you tried the Periodic Table? Holy crap that's hard! Especially if you haven't looked at Chem. since Grade 11 lol.

TORaptor4Ever 06-12-2009 01:24 PM

NBA's 50 greatest players is also a pretty cool one to do.

And Claudius... try the "Great" quiz... that one would be up your alley too.

bjjs 06-12-2009 01:48 PM

Top 25 metro areas in canada is a good one. Most can probably get 22,23. All 25 is tough.

Windex 06-12-2009 02:27 PM

sports ones are easy


this is hard
Can you name the television networks from their shows? - sporcle

Claudius 06-12-2009 02:46 PM

I did that one (TO2988) I got it pretty easily.

I'll try the Great quiz now.

I looked at the periodic table one and decided to pass.
