I had a few limitations in selecting events. First, I wanted to avoid events that were regional. Second, I wanted to include sporting events only if they were international in nature. Third, I had to be able to fit the event into one of the two categories (people or countries). This is because there are a lot of events that happen in the US or UK that I could have included but ultimately, it's difficult to present them in a sound clip without totally giving away what they are. By separating them into 10 people and 10 countries, I can present sound clips that have definitive answers. Because, really, if I made you name the event itself, then you'd have to learn to spell Eyjafjallajökull.

Great stuff and an obvious 5 orbs.

The 20 clips are 9:22 in total length which pretty much screws you if you want to, you know, listen to them all through, or repeat any of them. More time, please.

@pete32782- Excellent suggestion. Unnecessary snark. Time is increased to 12 minutes.
Oct 10th, 2011 at 23:37 GMT
Yeah, my bad. Felt necessary after I replayed a couple clips and subsequently ran out of time before the last 3 even started.

No problem. You were absolutely right about the time!
