    Default Senator Al Franken draws map of U.S.

    (Pretty impressive, I couldn't do it, nor something like 90 percent of Americans lol)

    That was pretty cool. Now I must challenge myself...and then find myself lacking.

    I'm not proud of this at all.. but I thought Oregon was near Florida up until I was 12 or 13. I'm pretty sure I couldn't do this if my LIFE depended on it. *hides in corner*

    I could do Nebraska and probably the states surrounding it because they are big and kind of square, and I was born in NE.

    How the fuck do remember the shapes of the teeny tiny states in the East. Isn't Rhode Island like smaller than L.A. or something?

    WOW! I am impressed.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    New England is easy. It's the midwest where I'd get fucked up. The best part of this is that it's not a rough sketch but actually looks really good. Al gets better all teh time.

    I can draw the outlines of the US, Brazil, and Europe almost perfectly (a few other countries as well), but there's no way in hell I'm able to draw all states (nor European countries, aside from islands)... I can place and locate in all cases aforementioned, but not outline them. That's INSANE!!! I LOVE that in a geeky way.

    I've seen Al do this on SNL. He's an impressive man.

    I can draw Wyoming almost as good as Colorado, but I'm still practicing.

    Yup. He graduated cum laude.

    Also, since he left off Alaska & Hawaii, senators of those states contacted him about it, so here's an updated map:
