    Do you know your geography?

    Well? Do you know your cities from around the world.

    I played for 15-20 mins and scored:
    259,375
    Level 9
    IQ 100

    OK, who got closest at any one time. Manchester UK, 24km. I guess that's not too surprising since I'm British!

    My eyes hurt after a while. I just can't make a mouse be that accurate.

    7KM, I forgot what it was. Probably was Dubai, UAE. Even that, it wasn't really accurate, I clicked the spot which I perceived was Singapore but it was 100km away.

    93? This thing is rigged.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.
