Being Filipino has its small advantages... like this quiz.
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 15:19 GMT
The Philippines just want to be special.
Comment below threshold:

Might we also just call this quiz "name Spanish speaking countries?"
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 15:40 GMT
Who else got more "no longer using" than actual questions right?
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 16:28 GMT
I thought of trying Philippines, and then talked myself out of it.
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 16:54 GMT
I am just so smart. I knew all of those countries that are no longer using the peso. 0_o
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 17:19 GMT
I got 8 using, 9 'no longer using'. I'm glad they didn't deduct a point for every wrong answer.
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 18:28 GMT
It would be fun (and educational!) if the bonus answers said things like "replaced by
" or "replaced by
" instead of just "no longer using."
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 18:30 GMT
There's at least 12 "No longer using" answers. Which is probably all, since I guessed all former Spanish and Portuguese colonies, plus 3 Iberian countries.
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 18:47 GMT
I can't believe I missed it because of the Philippines. I guessed every country in South America (Brazil, French Guiana, and Guyana weren't on there cause they weren't Spanish.) Every Central American country, Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Cuba, but forgot Philippines. I feel dumb.
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 19:08 GMT
7/8 correct, 12 bonuses...
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 19:09 GMT
So I guessed basically every Spanish-speaking country in Central and South America.... who knew there was another one on the other side of the globe?
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 20:07 GMT
Guys they speak Tagalog in the Philippines...
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 21:20 GMT
I only knew the Philippines used Pesos because my uncle lives there and has a family and everything, so I have to occasionally take interest in these things. No way would I have kown that otherwise
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 21:25 GMT
I missed the Philippines... which is ridiculous because I KNOW that they use the Peso there. I just got stuck on Latin America.. even tried Spain out of desperation even though I know they a) use the Euro and b) their currency was the Peseta before 2002. haha.
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 21:58 GMT
My brain (no longer using)
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 22:12 GMT
Guinea-Bissau came up as a bonus somehow without me typing it... I think Equatorial Guinea triggered it?
Oct 23rd, 2012 at 22:48 GMT
7 correct, 10 no longer using.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 00:46 GMT
Why was flyingplatypus1 rated down for that? They do!
Oct 24th, 2012 at 01:40 GMT
Is there a quiz for countries that no longer use the peso as their currency? I'm sure I'd do really well on that one!
Oct 24th, 2012 at 12:02 GMT
When I started the quiz, I immediately typed Mexico and Philippines. They were the most obvious to me but I see I was in the minority in my way of thinking.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 13:00 GMT
I must admit, Philippines threw me a curveball.
Oct 24th, 2012 at 13:10 GMT
In addition to my previous comment (which seems to be tested true), I noticed that when I actually type Guinea Bissau, nothing happens. I guess we have some cross triggers.
Oct 25th, 2012 at 19:48 GMT
Every time, Phillipines. EVERY TIME.
Oct 26th, 2012 at 18:09 GMT
Holy ****. Philippines*.
Nov 16th, 2012 at 04:04 GMT
5/8 correct + 7 bonuses. Totally didn't expect the Philippines to be there.
Nov 20th, 2012 at 16:24 GMT
Yes, people in the Philippines speak Tagalog, English, Cebuano, Ilocano, and a bunch of other languages and dialects today, but the official language for most of the historical record (about 300 years) was Spanish . Mexico (under Spanish rule) didn't even have Spanish as their official language for as long as the Philippines did.

I tried Equatorial Guinea before Philippines.
Dec 14th, 2012 at 14:04 GMT
I forgot Mexico but remembered Philippines :o
