Posted By on Fri, Nov 22, 2013 at 11:51 AM

Do you think you could draw a fairly accurate map of the United States? Could you get all 50 states in there without looking them up? Turns out a lot of us Americans are geographically challenged, which is a polite way of saying they couldn't find Nebraska if you stuck a cornhusk up ... where the sun don't shine. And Idaho? Huh? And the Great Lakes, well they're just a problem.

Buzzfeed has an entertaining collection of various Americans' attempts to draw a map of the U.S.
