Wasn't sure this should go in Technology, as it could happen in real life, too.
Let's say you meet someone on Facebook or other media, and they say they are from Country A. You're not sure where Country A is, but you do know that in the not-too-dim past, there was a great disaster there; say, an earthquake.
This is just to reassure me that it's probably best to say something like "I've heard of Country A; it's down by Countries B and C, isn't it?" rather than "Oh, where the big earthquake was". After all, you don't know if they lost someone in said quake, especially if Country A is very small.
I think I've inadvertently made this mistake before
but I'm quickly trying to think of better questions.
