Quiz: 25 Cities of the USA. I buggered up some of New England. I always do that. And while I'd heard of "Great Falls," I had no idea what state it was in. Final score: 81% in 1:25. (Link courtesy of Kel.)

Addendum: Ooh, he has a bunch more! I just tried the Australia and New Zealand version... and gave up after the first three. I know nothing about New Zealand geography.

Whoo hoo! I scored 100% in 48.7seconds. I guess it does help that I teach 5th grade (and social studies is heavy on the states, cities, and other notable locations)

Wait, how can you screw up New England? There was only one New England city on there.

I scored 100 in under 50 seconds. But I have to confess that I wouldn't have known the difference between Dallas and Houston before living down here. Apparently, they're WORLDS different, but to me it's all just one big scary Texas.

I can never get the Northern cities of Aus correct. Haven't spent any time up there. But NZ was a breeze! :)

I'm a Midwesterner, Nora. New England begins as soon as you get past Ohio, to me. :)

woohoo way to make me feel good 100% in 46.7 seconds. I'm going to try the USA one, I expect that I won't do as well....

93% in 1:06. I clicked on Atlantic City instead of Philly. Oops!

93% for the US, 44% for Au/NZ. Oh well.. I was doing all right until I got to NW Australia. I tried a few more times but never could remember the one just south of Auckland!
