On the Short Bus

Can you pass third grade? Nebraska and Kansas, as well as New Mexico and Arizona work to keep me in the third grade. Shouldn't I get extra credit for getting Wyoming right?

Vermont and New Hampshire are the two that I sometimes have to stop and think about for a moment. But I can see where Wyoming and Colorado would give people trouble as well. Were you unable to complete that test in the time allotted?

I wasn't (apparently) but some of those states are really friggin' tiny! It was hard to get the arrow in the right spot! I think the test was bias to begin with because you couldn't even click on a state without placing it right off...

I got a 48/48 in the time allotted and still failed. So much for the third grade, where's the high school sociology test?

Yeah, I didn't even know there was a time limit when I noticed it go red while I was mulling over those last four states. Since I had like ten seconds left, I just dropped it down, but apparently 50/50 odds aren't good enough for me since I got each set wrong.

Better versions (i.e. ones you pay for) have blocks in the Atlantic to drop the names off into so that you don't feel like you're playing 'Operation' while trying to label Rhode Island.

There's a similar thing online elsewhere, for Asia, Europe, the US, Africa, South America, all that good stuff.

Better yet, you can choose your degree of difficulty (show political borders for you to look for an outline, or not, just know where Croatia is, for example).
