I'm going to ask you a bunch of questions. There will be many correct answers for each question. Your job is to tell me a correct answer, but the trick is you want to think of the answer the other guys aren't thinking of. That is, your job is to give me the least popular correct answer for each question. DO NOT GOOGLE SHIT. You may not do any research, searching, interviewing, or use any other sources except the soft matter between your ears. If you happen to incidentally run across information that will help you with an answer, that's fine.
Correct responses will be scored as one point for each person who responded with that answer (including yourself). Incorrect answers will be scored as the sheep score (the most popular correct answer) multiplied by two. Low score wins. Ties will be broken by number of singletons, then by order of entry.

As an added layer of strategy, and/or if you just don't know ANY of the answers for a question, you may choose one question to drop, and you will receive a score of zero for that question. You may only drop one question. Please indicate your drop by typing DROP as your response to the question.

DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS IN THE THREAD.

Example:
1. Austria
2. Boobs
3. Roquentin
4. DROP
5. Anal
etc.


Entry deadline is 11:59PM ET on Wednesday July 16th, at which point I will start revealing the answers and scores in the thread on http://cngoons.com. Submit your answers with this form


Okay, submissions are obviously now closed. By request, in addition to posting running tallies of who guessed what and what the score is, I've been asked to post the potential answers to each question in this post, presumably so you can all try to pretend you got something right. e: will finish this later.

You did have an addition in question form that occupied nations had to be independent before that. Baltic states were annexed by USSR in 1940, those territories conquered by nazis in 1941. Thus I protest against them being counted right.

And Austria was annexed before World War 2 begun.

Yeah I'm gona be a bitch like that.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Occupied_Europe

This was the source used. Basically, anything that wasn't a dependent element of an unconquered nation (i.e. Jersey) or listed as an SSR went to a correct answer.

And the Baltics declared independence shortly before the war began: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estonia#Declaration_of_independence :P

I'm afraid you are correct about Austria, though, so I'll make the necessary adjustments in scoring there.

You linked the First World War era declaration of independence of my own nation. It lasted untill 1940, when Estonia was renamed Estonian SSR and incorporated into the Soviet Union. Next year the war with the fascists begun.

I know the map of Occupied Europe is impressive, but you did put the limitation of "independent" on the question yourself.

Quite true. I had thought they were just that, but given what you've mentioned it seems I was wrong and will need to make a few corrections.
