We just thought we’d take a short break out of all our stimulating diversions to talk about something we think is really important: the current political situation in Egypt. For many people, Egypt brings to mind historical feats and massive pyramids, but in more modern times, Egypt has had as much turmoil as any country in the middle east. It certainly made us here at Sporcle, despite being a quiz and trivia based site, realize how little we knew about the country beyond just the facts of our quizzes.
In the past, we’ve published a couple of quizzes on Sporcle about Egypt, one as it stands today and another about its ancient mythology. We’re glad to see that the people of Egypt were able to receive the change they asked for, and if it helped a few us around the world see beyond our preconceptions, and look at the day-to-day problems of people in a foreign land, that can only be a good thing.
Have a great weekend everybody!
