Fast Facts about Countries!

Looking for that fast fact about a country for school? Check out geognos.com. For instance, I just learned there are 1,084,748 people living in Cyprus, that they speak French, Swahili, and Kirundi in Burundi, that 42.4% of the people in Thailand work in the agricultural industry, and that there are only 34,000 cellular phone users in Micronesia. Plus, it's got neat lists like the 'Top 20 debtor Nations' (U.S. is #1, of course) and "Where the highest mountains in the world are'. Great for school projects.
