    There's Youtube account I follow of a guy who basically live streams himself playing it *ahem* :eyes: and he'll sometimes cheat in an attempt to get a perfect score. I find it fascinating. :D

    (but yes, it's cheating :kim:)

    Oh well. Who knew there was a HACKNEY in DERBYSHIRE? I wonder what the bins are like.

    The second one is a bit easier, it's plonked me right outside the Salvation Army Braintree. :D

    I cheated...

    I realized it was a small town in Africa and I knew I’d never be able to guess correctly. It was in rural South Africa

    I didn’t want to pay for the local ones. But I’m probably going to now that I’m into it

    Honestly, I've got QUITE GOOD as knowing roughly where I am, and then deducing it further by looking for the language on signs and general stuff like that. I was FOOLED by an Italian restaurant in Albania last night though. :evil:

    I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some, uh, people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future. For our children.
