    Here's a link to a map that's interactive. Click on your home county or city, and it'll show where the majority of people who out went to.

    I performed much more poorly at this map than I expected. It'll give you a city, and you see how close to the actual location you can pin it. You can sign in as a visitor, then play others or play alone.

    I'd love to know what cause the "Lisa" and "Jennifer" epidemics in the mid 60's and 70's.

    google:
    But what brought Jennifer to Number 1? Much credit for this goes to Hollywood again, via a bestselling novel. Mass audiences were sobbing to the tragic tale of Jennifer Cavilleri and Oliver Barrett IV in first the Erich Segal novel and then the Ali McGraw-Ryan O’Neal film of Love Story, released in 1970, the year—yes—that Jennifer hit Number One on the Social Security list.

    At this point in time we see successful grown-up survivors of that epidemic headlining everywhere—Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennifer Garner, Jennifer Connelly, Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Capriati, and current Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence, born at the tail end of the meteor, in 1990.

    oh, that's kind of fun. I got a few easy ones like Montreal and Brisbane (I spent a semester there) and then some I'd never even heard of. A lot harder to randomly place a city in Russia than in Iraq.

    attempt 1 - average points 441.1, avg kms off 1786.2. (Russia! not knowing African geography at all!)

    I've been wasting my time on that site for quite a while. Gauging by the number of guests on there right now, it looks like quite a few of you are doing the same thing.

    Far and away my best round, but I've yet to play anyone.
