This happened ages ago, but a recent TV advert made me find it out again.
Last February I was playing around with Google image labeller – it pits you against a random partner from around the world.
I was pitted against an american and asked to identify an outline which was obviously the former Soviet Union and a few other countries alongside it. I recall tagging it USSR, Asia and Soviet Union.
My partner? – Europe, Atlas… and to cap it all America is Better.
… obviously not at Geography, thinking that is Europe …
