I'm not compelled to even attempt this quiz. I lived in Michigan for a year before I realized the Upper Peninsula wasn't a part of Canada. I thought California was directly under Washington State and Oregon was to the east of Idaho. I thought that New Jersey was directly underneath Vermont.

Soooo....basically, if I can't figure out what is where in the country I live in, I'm screwed when it comes to figuring out where stuff is in the world.
