never rat on your friends, and always keep your mouth shut

A question

First, fill out the survey.

Next, how much respect should you lose for someone if they totally tank a world-flags/geography quiz limited to Europe and North America and some Asia? Like even 5-10 current-events prompts don't get them to guess the country or capital?

We played as a group, and the people who were having some difficulty even started being blown away by the total inability of two of the players. Like, "I don't know if we can still be friends." But since I know that this sort of stuff was my bread and butter as a kid, I can't gauge how much of this stuff is actually common knowledge among a certain type of person.

The friday options would obviously have to be in the evening, right?

Yeah, Friday wouldn't be the draft. Just checking to see if people can make it Friday so we can really commit on Saturday. No Andy Martin style IN/OUTs.

Also, yes, it's okay to not like people if they are dumb at basic geography. You have to draw the line somewhere.

just not at spelling; the line is never drawn at spelling
