I know about Europe thanks to Diplomacy from StarCraft (It only had boundaries and capitol city)

I also have used the word Juggernaut outside of Diplomacy - Halo 2 online ;D

Guilty on many of the above. And there's more:

When you've lost all ability to read actual body language. You ask a person you suspect of lying to your face to put it in an email so you can tell...

When your wife wants a holiday in Switzerland and isn't satisfied with "you just can't"...

When you become so confident of your persuasive powers that you confuse the "Orders" and "Messages" buttons...

When you read WWI history and can't help thinking "That might be so, but it's not how it turned out in Spitfire Invitational"...

When you find yourself teaching your 2 year-old that the four seasons are "Fall, Winter, Spring and Build"...

Your knowledge of European geography often conflicts with that of your coworkers'. (No one knows where Galicia or Livonia are, yet they insist Ireland is a real place.)


definitely this one, I used to work with a polish bloke to whom i said

"but if you're from Warsaw that means you're Russian, doesn't it?"

he didn't talk to me after that.

When you get frustrated in history class because of how stupid all the leaders were: "but with an allied France and Russia, England should definitely have worked with Germany!"

He would have, but Germany stabbed France first and basically took all his home centers except for Mar.

Wrong war. In the first, France just lost Bur. Heck, germany even bounced in Belgium and no one bothered to take Hol.
