I can’t remember, was the first female prime minister of the UK Margaret Thatcher or Jane Austen?

I spent too long working out how to spell Kyrgyzstan (which I still got wrong)

OK I'm gonna do it again right now because posting an old score is probably cheating.

The Guineas, Gabons, Ghanas and Gambias always kill me!

Sporcle I always flounder at around 125. There are always loads I know too, just my rotten memory. I get different ones wrong each time(!)

94% 😎 Got the Roman Emperor one wrong and the one about the first computer.

BUT there were some lucky guesses in there (the code Hammurabi anyone) and @ZenGiraffe's above post made me suspect of a couple of the 'All of the Above''s. I'd have probably got the one about rivers wrong if it weren't for that.

I am useless with countries. I always have to sing that song from Animaniacs but then get lost at the second verse, and it is getting increasingly outdated now anyway.
