@Steampunkbride:  A friend posted this on Facebook, and I loved it.  Sure, there’s a lot of them that have the states wrong, but a few that are very well completed!  I know I wouldn’t be able to do the same with a map of Great Britain.

Thanks for the Happy Thanksgiving!  🙂

I’d say there are plenty of Americans who would probably do ten times worse trying to fill out a map of the US. I’m also willing to bet a lot of us can’t fill out a map of Europe or even GB alone! LOL I know I can’t. I had to take a map test in my college history class a while back just like this. I got almost all of the states, but the midwest region just all looks alike!

Most of those people probably did better than the average American would- sad to say.

@beetee123:  I was just about to say that I’m sure not many of us could do half as well as these people did when filling out of a map of Europe. I would be terrible at it, I fully admit that!

However, I’m a good little American that knows there are 50 states (not 52, or 49, seriously… so many don’t know) and I’d be able to fill out the US map. Bahaha. This was too funny.

@Steampunkbride:  I remember second grade when we had to complete the map…You couldn’t go to recess until it was 100% correct.

To be fair the east coast is pretty hard and I wouldn’t be able to make a map of anywhere overseas!

@Steampunkbride:  Haha! I thoroughly laughed at the one where the West was practically all Utah and the East was all New Hampshire, and the middle was “no fucking clue”. That was great.

I think my favorite is the one who labled Alaska as Hawaii. It’s just so very not right.

@LiliKitty:  Is that a thing? I didn’t realize people didn’t know how many states are in the USA…Our flag should kind of make that easy!
