I want to call shenanigans on question #4. Washington D.C. is not a state, but I guess the way the question is asked disqualifies DC as a possible answer. I still feel like I just got Rick Rosnered. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rick_Rosner
Slalom? Super G? I'm an Estonian.
I just knew somebody would point out that Washington DC is not a state. You're all just so Public Radioey.
Washington DC is more of state of mind. At the moment, a deranged state.
The first question is also geographically confusing, especially given the answer.
My late father-in-law described Washington as "12 square miles surrounded by reality."
And it's Finland, for the win!
I managed six questions, purely by chance. I was at the BB King show; I saw a report on the whale thing just this morning; I don't want to be a wiener winner; and the rest were luck.

Norway! In with 10!
I also got a 10 - Norway! The T Paw question stumped me; hard to keep track of that one these days.
In like Finn. 7 out of 15 with no hints--hints are cheating when it's multiple choice! Yes I had a couple lucky guesses. Usually I'd get around 10 but I've been watching too much curling lately and not paying enough attention to the world.
10 with no hints.
A perfect 10! Oh wait, 10 wasn't perfect.
For the quiz, I am proud to call myself a (German-Irish, Spanish-Speaking American) Norwegian! But I was just "happy to compete," even if I didn't win the gold.
¡Once de los quince!
