I'm pretty solid on most every country. I've got maybe half or two thirds of the world's capitals. Major (and some minor) regions, rivers, biospheres, etc. In the US, all 50 states and their capitals.

I think I remember a good amount of it. Geography was one of my majors in college.

No, it’s a saying my grandfather would say.
Fair to middling describes something that is average or only slightly above average. The term is an American phrase, used as early as the 1820s. The term fair to middling originally referred to gradations of quality in cotton, sheep and other farm goods. Such goods may be designated into categories such as fine, good, fair, middling and poor. By the 1860s the phrase fair to middling evolved into common speech to mean something average or slightly above average.

Right, I have heard fair to middling, but I had never heard Midland so I had to yank your chain a little bit.
