C'mon people...the Romans? Ugh. Geographic ignorance is rampant in America.
I'm sort of fascinated by people's lack of geographic awareness. Given how interconnected global events have become, you would think people would be more interested and aware of how geography shapes culture, and politics, and economics, and a host of other aspects of our modern life.

Here's a fun little map quiz for you that I found online today. Just 15 countries for you to find where they belong on the map. My challenge: time yourself and see how long it takes you to figure out which one is which. If you're feeling really brave, comment on this post with your time to match all 15 countries.
What do you think? Am I blowing this out of proportion? Or is this a real shortcoming for 21st Century citizens?
