Do you know your states?

Take this interactive geography quiz (thanks, Nate!) and see how easily you can kick my ass.

(Geography: not my strong suit. I had 88 percent accuracy with an average error of 27 miles. And I know of at least two of you who will probably ace this.)

94%, error 12 miles. Of course, the first state I got was KENTUCKY!!! Crap.

92 percent, error 8 miles.

Drove myself nuts getting all those New England states to fit; pity the fool who draws Kansas on the first try.

We play this geography game all the time: http://www.geosense.net/

Just click visit instead of sign in and try your hand at the U.S. map. I've whittled away several hours playing Geosense instead of, say, doing work.

92%, 26 miles... but I shot myself in the foot by getting cocky and dropping Maryland in below Virginia rather than above, even though I knew perfectly well where it was. D'oh!

Kansas on the first try? I'd relish the opportunity! I just got Tennessee on my first try. Ugh.

But I fared better: 96 percent with a three-mile average error.

96 percent, average error 3 miles. Bad shuffle, and I had to place Iowa and Tennessee blind. I'm sure I'll ace it next time!

Oh, Nick! I thought for sure you'd ace it. (But it's no surprise you did that well.)

96 percent, avg. error 3 miles ... I got Iowa early on, dammit. And Mom didn't think geography would be a worthwhile college major. -- EMorse, TCE

92 percent, 8 miles. Not bad, considering the East Coast might as well be the moon. (For me, I mean.)
