Earlier today, my dad (Dope Ass Dad?) (that's still d-a-d) (but it's cooler than just d-a-d, so I'll give him "Dope Ass Dad") (whattya think, DAD?) sent me a link to a simple US geography test. (Um, third grade level.) And I have to admit, I failed the first time I took it and then I felt really stupid, but then I did a little bit of studying (I've always been bad at geography) (if we were standing in Hollywood and you asked me to point in the direction of Santa Monica and then in the direction of Pasadena, I could probably do it, but I'm not making any promises, you know?) and I took the test again and I did markedly better, and then the third time I aced it.
So, if you want to either feel really stupid or just a little bit smart (and I say "just a little," because if you ace it all you've really proven is that you have a third grader's knowledge of US geography) (so it's not like passing this test is passing the MENSA test), then take this test. Be ready before you clink! As soon as you hit "play," the timer starts counting down and you only have about 60 seconds to complete the test!
Let me know how you do. (Oh, and in the interest of full disclosure, the first time I took the test, I got a really bad score--something like 20 out of 48--but I blame some of that on the fact that I didn't realize how quick the timer was counting down and so I wasn't exactly rushing and I simply ran out of time.) (Whereas the second time I took the test I got 35, and then the third time I took the test I got a solid 48 out of 48, and then I just took it again several hours later to make sure I'd retained the information and I got 48 out of 48 again, so, you know, thank god.)
CLINK ME WHEN YOU'RE READY TO PLAY
Shit, this is the first new thing I've done in forfuckingever.
New Thing #128: I learned the geography of the United States of America.
