    Never judge a book by the cover.
    I didn't do well either, but that's not something that I would do normally.

    It would also be interisting to see if all these people had accents? I suppose it's an assumption that the people in the photos might speak English.

    Heck, I'm a mutt. I would like to see a quiz where one had to pick out what a person’s ancestry is.

    Does it really matter?

    7--average. I knew I couldn't tell them apart, despite having many friends who are Korean and Chinese. Don't know to many people who are Japanese, though.

    I met a guy who said he could tell apart Indians from Pakistanis, even if they're wearing american clothes. What an idiot, they are the same ethnicity and were the same country until fifty years ago. Can't tell something apart when there's no difference, I always say.

    if you read the posts below the game on the main page, you'll have another good laugh. especially if you imagine the voice of a wise and humble, soft-spoken Asian-woman speaking these immutable truths...Like Wing for example.

    I got a 4. I'm "hopeless". At least I can tell the difference between their writing(can't read it though).

    8. If they were talking and I could see them physically (acting, walking, doing anything) I'd get more. :)

    How about doing a European All Looks The Same test? Or All World ...? Or All Blacks Look The Same? An American Black is easy to recognize e.g. from Asian and European blacks. But .. now that there are 3rd generation blacks everywhere, put casual 3 alternatives.. This black is from Sweden, Argentina or Spain? Portugal, USA, Brazil? Is this white guy from Ireland, Sweden, Russia? Finland, Falkland/Malvinas, Estonia?

    Let me tell something embarassing. I was once in a supermarket, somewhere in Finland. A woman asked me something where to find a product. I didn't think she looked anything different from the local folks (ok, dark hair but taht's not uncommon even there). She later told she was Chinese. I thought she was Finnish. That's pretty bad, huh? :eek:

    Hmmm. I got an 11! I see a lot of Koreans just about every day, but that's about it. I'm sure it was just luck...what if you put Michael Jackson in a white or black line-up?

    Not as good as I though I would be...

    Well, I got all the Japanese people right (thankfully, given I live in Tokyo).

    Only got 13 overall...it was difficult with the mugshots pulling faces. Still, I would have liked to score higher.

    How about a test with straight and gay people...that would be interesting...
