The crush of stuff I alluded to earlier in the week has arrived, so I’m calling in sick today. However, I have a fabulous time-waster for you today: Geo Guesser, in which you are served a random Google Maps street view from somewhere in the world, and asked to figure out where you are. I played two rounds, scored 11,000 and 9,000 points respectively, and am really hoping no one does this as an iPad app, because then I’ll get nothing done.
But you geography nerds will enjoy. My tips: Street signs. License plates. Flags. Cars. Pavement quality. Your gut. This is what will carry you along.
I’ll be back Monday.
