Let's see how this goes. inspired by OB's recent thread how about an ongoing quiz thread.? Rules are straightforward:
  1. a question is posted
  2. absolutely no googling or other search engines as that ruins it - you cant cheat yourself
  3. whoever gets the question right posts the next question
I used to participate in something similar on a quiz machine forum in days when there was serious ££££ to be made from trawling round pubs and it ran for years.

I'll start:

Which are the only two countries in the world that are double landlocked (that is they are themselves completely bordered by other landlocked countries)?

I thought one was Kazakhstan, until I realised that had a border with Russia. I'm sure it is one of the 'stans though.
