I got it in 19 seconds but only because I typoed Michigan and continued on with Erie before realizing the first one didn't take. Had to erase 'em and start the two over.

yellow box doesn't make sense for a "name all the..." quiz. it only works when you have clues or some way of identifying which one is which.

knowledge is not dependant on typing speed, there are plenty of sites on the web for people to speed-type. Jet punk quizzes are about knowledge and learning. it is pathetic to see all the people that base their abilities on how fast they can type.

Did anyone else find it jarring when the blue turned green, and not the yellow. Yes, I know it's obvious why, just very different from other map quizzes.

There is a tiny area that never turns green.

That tiny blue area is Lake St. Clair, not one of (or part of one of) the great lakes.

I finished with 0:54, only because I'm a slow typist. It's a shame that actually challenging quizzes are being snubbed from the front page by these extremely easy 5-second quizzes.

I hate these tiny American-centric quizzes. Because so many people get 100%, you can get 0 points for only missing one, which is pretty good for a non-American (or non-Canadian in this case).

I'm hoping that you meant 'American' as 'North American', since all but one of these lakes is partly in Canada.

Jetpunk is an American website, so some US (or North American) bias is to be expected, I think.

The pleasure of JetPunk is finding out how much you know, and learning things you didn't. If you're so obsessed with what score you wind up with, just cheat. Problem/angst solved.

Being an Aussie and thus having pretty well nothing to do with the lakes, my guiding light is remembering the lyrics to "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot. Pleased to say that it worked!

I usually do this quiz by the order in which the glaciers receded and in accordance to which minerals supported life concurrent to the sediments which can be found in striation on each lake bed indicicative to the resulting fossils found in modern day archiological discoveries. . . . Naw, I'm just chewing your gum. I paid attention in geography and spat it back out. Big pat on the back for me. Nerds, the lot of youse.
