mhwitt said...

Mongolia, aka "Outer Mongolia". No doubt.
Moldova... about 85% sure here.
Malawi... 95% sure.
Macedonia... 98% sure.
Mauritania. 50% sure. I always get Mali and Mauritania backwards.

And among the many learned, witty, and smolderingly attractive contestents today, the ones going home with the MQXLV Exclaimation Point are Calico, Karin, DrSchnell, Chance, and mhwitt!

It's the 5th E.P. for mhwitt, the 6th for Karin, and the 7th for our erudite Cat. Chance and DrSchnell stay tied on the all-time leaderboard at 16 E.P.s apiece.

@Morgan: Tell your Global Studies teacher that it's time to raise the bar! Tell him that you need more knowledge to run with the Quiz, so you'd appreciate a quicker pace. Suggest that the class add an evening session for "daily doubles." Organize the class to agitate for Saturday classes.

@Karma: No. Moldova was a province of the '70s.

@Chance: Theme? Oh, that! Total coincidence.

@mhwitt: Not always you don't.


Thanks to all and sundry for taking the Quiz! And here's a shout-out to you lurkers, too! You guys are awesome!
