    Default Diversion: States Puzzle

    Here's an online puzzle to see if you know where all the states go.

    I had an average error of 127 miles the first time, not knowing what to expect from the program, and really messing up on Arkansaw and Idaho. On the second try I did much better, 24 miles average error.

    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    Sheesh!

    I had an average error of 4 miles, then I dropped Ohio, and couldn't find it. 39 perfect out of 41!

    I didn't get to finish! LOL!

    Smile Cute Game

    I did in the 20's the first time and tried again and got down to an 8 . I guess I can live with that.

    I got 92%, 21 435 seconds. How do you find OK without any other states around it! Sheesh.

    I guess the states come up in random order. Mine came up pretty good - a lot of coastal states which were easy to place.

    Are we bored, or what? LOL!

    Well, that was fun! It's been a long time since I thought about the relative position of our states! 88% and 25 miles for me - first time - I think I can improve on that! Dave's son said "Ha, Ha, isn't that a children's game?" Ooops - maybe he will try it!

    Thumbs up Fun

    That was fun, neat site. 90% 25 miles in 292 sec. Not bad for hardly ever out of the New England area.
