GeoGuessr

3 Jun

My latest internet time-waster is GeoGuessr, a real-life version of “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?”. Basically, you’re given a view from Google Earth and then supposed to guess where the heck you are. The closer you are, the more points you get. It’s oddly fascinating. Of course, I’m the sort of person who obsessively pin-points the exact spot using the powers of the internet. It’s pretty easy if you’ve got city street signs or large monuments in your view. Rural highways are killer, though. It’s a cool way to see other parts of the world without the hassle of international flights. I recommend killing a few minutes on it.
