Website of the Day: The Traveler IQ Challenge

There's a real reason shows like Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? and websites that test our vocabularies are so popular: We may be geeks, but we are forgetful geeks.

While we all learned world geography in grade school most of us take a few seconds to find even the most popular cities in the world on a map. Don't believe me? Check out the Traveler IQ Challenge, a site that tests your knowledge of major landmarks, cities, and (if you're ready for it) more obscure cities by timing how long it takes you to pinpoint them on a map. Might be time to pick up that atlas again.

To learn how to post your favorite websites to our Website of the Day group,

I know that this long list looks scary, but trust me, once you get the hang of it, it'll be a snap the second time around.

  9. Change channel to “Technology and Gadgets.”
  10. Fill in tag field with relevant tags.

I got to level 6. Much better than I thought I'd do. It's actually really useful game for learning more about geography since they tell you where each spot is after you guess.
