U.S. Score: 94% 46/50
average error--6 miles
Europe Score (level 3): 98% 44/45
average error--11 miles

I'm a map fanatic. I've been fiendishly fond of maps since childhood, European maps in particular, for some reason since I'm from the U.S. I screwed up on four states; then in Europe I botched with Malta. I'm going to try the harder European one.

I used to be as well. I was never very artistic so at daycare, we'd get these posterboards to paint and I would always copy mapes freehand from the encyclopedia. I can't draw on my own, but it's scary how well I can copy-to-scale!

america: 92%, average of 15 miles, 261 seconds...i didn't know it was timing me... i attribute that to the fact that it started with missouri and iowa

europe: you don't even want to know. but they started me with andorra and FYROM, two countries i didn't even know existed


edit: that was europe leve 3 (62%)...i got a 72% on level 4

70%, with an average error of 70 miles.

Clearly I need to study my Eastern seaboard more.

And actually, it's a little unfair, I accidentally let go of Texas and Alaska before sticking them exactly and it docked me.

Man, it's too sensitive. So I clicked on the *border* of Serbia instead of the middle. 35/44 on Europe...

This is more useful than my Geography class.

98% with an avg. error of 9 miles on U.S.A.

I guess that A.P. Geography class is paying off

Then I dropped Oklahoma when the cat jumped on my keyboard and my mouse dropped it But really, am a state fanatic and I would never miss any on a test.
Same thing happened to me...I got Nebraska first and I know where Nebraska is but not EXACTLY! I dropped Alabama like a centimeter over the already-placed Mississippi and they said it was wrong.

88%, 34 miles! That was fun in a nightmares-of-7th-grade-geography-quizzes sort of way...

FYROM is (Former Yugoslav Republic Of) Macedonia, if that makes things any clearer.
