Two things for a Tuesday.

1. "Women don't want to solve their problems. They just want them validated." Discuss.

2. See how many UN member states you can name in ten minutes here. As you type them in — spelling counts — they get checked off. No cheating! (Click here to see how I did; please only do so after you give it a go. Feel free to post your score, too.)

Out of 192 countries, I nailed 131 and left 61. The ones I left (three of which I've set foot in before):

Angola, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brunei, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Comoros, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Fiji, Ghana, Grenada, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Iceland, Jamaica, Kiribati, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Madagascar, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Monaco, Nauru, Netherlands, Paraguay, Philippines, Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, Sao Tome and Principe, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, The Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Vanuatu.

To clarify your first point, I argue that when initially dealing with a problem and discussing/venting it with a male, she wants her problem validated first rather than have the man try to start fixing the problem right away. Either she can then fix it herself, or she will ask for help.

ECB.

On the day that Scooter Libby is found guilty of being a giant prick, all you can talk about is chicks? Man, get your head in the game!

p.s. How could you forget Vanuatu? They've got cannibals!

1. I think this is a pretty dumb generalization :)

1. Jason Law doesn't want to change his retarded assumptions. He just wants them confirmed.

If you'd read the comments, Imran, you'd have seen that my original paraphrasing was off a bit, and was corrected by its (female) author.

Speaking to the amended quote, however, I think there's a good deal of validity in it.
