here’s a great quiz on mental floss with ten quick questions. all you have to do is decide if the name is a discontinued ben & jerry’s ice cream flavor, or a band found on myspace. i only got 50%!!
ok, i consider myself a bit of an amature geography buff. nothing big-time — but i like maps. so, i was surprised by how poorly i did on this altered states quiz. 10 of the 50 u.s. states are shown, without orientation, and altered in their direction (but otherwise unaltered). i only got 70%, which kinda ticked me off. the ones i got wrong brought a total “duh! of course!” response when revealed.
