Geography (from Greek γεωγραφία, geographia, literally "earth description") is a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of Earth. The first person to use the word "γεωγραφία" was Eratosthenes (276–194 BC). Geography is an all-encompassing discipline that seeks an understanding of the Earth and its human and natural complexities—not merely where objects are, but how they have changed and come to be.

These were some tough questions asked during the final rounds of this year's National Geographic geography bee along with the answers. The farthest I ever got when I was in the bee was the preliminary rounds of the state level in both the 7th and 8th grades.

Confluences of rivers and oceans around the world ; a great geography lesson; some of the different color boundaries make it seem as if they're a real-life map

This is the first half of a project that a guy from Sweden started last year which involves getting a video of a person from every country around the world saying their name and where they are from in their native language. It shows how small and connected our world is becoming. He is looking for more videos from missing countries for the project through this year with a few more already added to his collection
