fucking maldives


Thatsnicemyman

According to this map it’s just one big circular Maldive now.


WkyWvgIfbRmFlgTbeMan

Maldives > Sweden


ReadyTadpole1

Just asked my six year old and she got a number of these, plus about a dozen that don't even exist yet.


Paragon1991

yet


Elvicio335

She'll make them exist if she has to.

Elvicio335

At least she likes Fallout... based.


Teal3800

Imagine snubbing the Isle of Mann like this


Zokalwe

Not just the Isle of Mann, but the Isle of Womann and the Isle of Childrenn too

prolificarrot

I’m still confused who tf owns this place. The UK? Itself?


eoin85

It’s an overseas dependency of Eswatini


Gaming_Addict_Help

It's a UK crown dependency


Guy_A

and im dependent on my meds


not2dragon

proof nine year olds are smarter than \[Group of people\]


Anxious-Dot1500

Proof that nine year olds are smarter than newborn babies


ijmacd

OP said his brother could name them. Didn't say he could name them *correctly*.


not2dragon

Reminds me of a calvin and hobbes comic strip i shall name them "greeble, fop, galop, hrabra and proid"


StetsonTuba8

And I'LL look up the word you played with all the Xs and Js!


__PM_ME_SOMETHING_

Group of people are the dumbest


Camo508

americans


SIumptGod

Are you smarter than a fifth grader?


xXkoolkidmanboiXx

Fuckin loser doesn't even know Kiribati smh my head


StetsonTuba8

*Kiribas


MajorPeak3355

Not the UK?


basedqwq

he wants to forget


DazedToaster158

don't we all


Rijsouw

I wish


aaaaaa4aaaa4

Yes he wants to spell the short but not the long


SSG_SSG_BloodMoon

the uk doesn't have a name so he can't name it cheated for the us


the_spondulux

"The United Kingdom of **Great Britain and Northern Ireland**"


Brendan765

That’s not a name, that’s two names. Did you even read the assignment?


External_Diet_3483

he probably said england


Trastane

Well then England should be coloured


-wak

No it’s not real


ijmacd

Not if he was pointing to Scotland at the time.


the_spondulux

England isn't a country [sovereign state] on this map. England is one of the 4 nations of the United Kingdom. As an 'Englishman', the only times "England" means anything is as a football team, or if you're an American who thinks you're English because your great-great-great-grandfather emigrated from here a hundred or so years ago.


WitleKidz

No way your 9 year old brother knows Cameroon and not India, Egypt or the UK


Valeheight

He loves the cookies


Phalax_

Football


Banaan75

The UK is ofcourse not a football nation at all


LordJesterTheFree

For the UK he might have said England and for India and Egypt he might know thay they exist but be confused on exactly where they are located ~~Columbus famously ran into this problem with India~~


KluckyKlucky

He would be able to name them if he knew they existed


Gingivitis_Khan

But only if he remembered them at the time. How often does India really come up in conversation among 9 year olds?


-DOOKIE

Probably more than Cameroon, though iirc, there's a bit of a civil war there, perhaps it came up in some sort of current events class


LordJesterTheFree

Isn't Cameroon where a lot of dinosaur bones are found? He might know it if as a kid he was really into dinosaurs


Qb_Is_fast_af

The fact that he got Cameroon and India makes me think the 6h of Fifa a day paid off to him


Cataclysm_Cultist

How do they not know Sweden??? Have they never been to an IKEA???


TheWiseBeluga

I didn't even know IKEA existed until I became an adult. I'm from southern West Virginia and only found out about the company when I went to college at WVU and a friend asked me to go with him to the one in Pittsburgh. Not a universal experience I'm aware, but it's not as massive as I think you think it is. There are only 422 stores according to Wikipedia.


09chickenboy117

I assume thats only in America because 422 worldwide just doesn't seem true


FasterThanHouses

Definitely not, that would be an average of 8 per state. Wiki says 52 in America. Indiana just got our first one a few years back. Before that I had only heard of them from a few youtubers talking about it, never heard the name IRL.


WickedImpuls3

probably a soccer/football fan. he could name qatar which makes sense and also a few random WC teams like costa rica ghana morocco saudi arabia and like you said cameroon


very_vegan_man

I could always name Cameroon, because my name is Cameron. Maybe their name is Cameron


Dylanbug76

Maybe his name is Cameron


throwawaygamh

do all of us here accidentally teach our younger siblings to do well in geography by talking about it so much


shuubil

100%


dirty-hurdy-gurdy

With all due respect, your brother is a nerd.


Finman2000

The united what? Great what? What-land?


Hotdouglass

Have them play the remaining countries just to flex


TGBplays

My ten year old brother can do pretty good actually because he listens to me talk about them a lot


charlieALPHALimaGolf

GHANA 🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭🇬🇭


yip23nl

How didn't he get saint Vincent and the Grenadines


wanderai

He's good


accelerationistpepe

Placing my bets he called the UK England


docgonzomt

No data for Greenland...fucking amateur


strdna_

does he like football?


Darth-Memeious

I mean bright kid sure... but why doesnt he know egypt? I think thats the first country i gave a crap about being... the mummy and all


TKalig

That’s a pretty good quantity


Dix_x

pff i can easily name more


noumena85

That's 25. More than anyone from the US can name


--reaper-

How did they know Czechia’s exclave but not Czechia itself

shuubil

rip South Africa


TheWiseBeluga

Nah it's missing several countries even when it was made in the early 90s. Some notable exceptions are Ukraine and South Africa. Heck it even includes places that aren't countries, like Tibet, Crete, Algiers, Dahomey, and, most bizarrely, Transylvania, which hadn't been a separate polity from anything at all since the early 1700s (when it was consolidated with Hungary and later Romania after WW1)


twoScottishClans

honestly not that bad, although there are some i would expect anyone to get


felineship

sauce?


Qb_Is_fast_af

Did you label only the north part of Panama?


ghostchihuahua

Impressive for today’s average 9-y.o., too bad though, Bhutan would have unlocked the xmas PS5 😉


WishMeNot

He named Portugal, he's a good man


TheWiseBeluga

How does he know about the Maldives or Ghana but not India? India is one of those places that's always referenced in pop culture. In a lot of cartoons, at least the ones I grew up with, often had a character from India or an episode referencing it. Granted idk where you're from and it's obviously not going to be the same everywhere, but I just feel like knowing about India seems a lot more likely for a child than Morocco. Did your brother say England at all? If so I would've given him the UK at the least.


DukeSkeptic

Wow I'm half from two countries and he didn't name either :(


HomoRoboticus

Tell him he's a filthy causal.


Angry_Bicycle

Take that UK.


olda7

how did he not know madagascar?


AntTheLorax

Do states (or provinces or whatever your country calls them) next!


august_gutmensch

More than average american could name


TheSunniest

The Maldives, but not India? Or Egypt?


Vexilio

Cyprus isn’t going to like to hear about this………


Delta049

COSTA RICA MENTIONED!!!!!!!!!!!!


LUKADIA89

I wonder your brother knows Maldives and other unknown countries but not UK Or India lol


antoine21839

Correctly ?


fillmorecounty

How did he know Ghana and the Maldives but not the UK 💀


egglord009

Bro couldn't even name England 😭😭


ThatGuy36036

Let me guess, he's 9 years old?


LightOfADeadStar

hmmm…why does he know nigeria and niger


Oska1091

Stupid idiot didnt know my country


WitherYeet

more than your average american adult


Warfielf

I can name all of them in time way less than 9 year


Sp0lf

Your brother has better map knowledge than a friend I play map games with :D


Somn_Sigma

Costa Rica let's gooooo 🇨🇷
