Geography Quiz

You East Coast guys have an advantage, all those states are so tiny. I can never figure out where they go. I think I was 76% accurate at 225 seconds. My dad was 94% accurate but he lives for this stuff and was born in Georgia.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: Geography Quiz

i'm actually shocked at what I got, 84% 30 miles 451 seconds....so i'm a little slow, slow and steady wins the race right?

Re: Geography Quiz

I tried to do it fast just for fun....but minor mouse errors keep you from getting a decent score...168 secs, but only 74%...

Re: Geography Quiz

It's randomized so if you get the coastal states first you have an advantage.... luck of the draw. Try it again, it won't be in the same order as the first time.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: Geography Quiz

86%, 30 mile ave error, 363sec

Would have been a bit higher but mouse control sadly lacking, so dropped one or two slightly out of position.
Got all the States there or there abouts in correct location.

BTW I'm a Limey.
