Ooh, very fun. Damn Honolulu, I kept thinking that that far east of Mexico City sounded like the Ocean, didn't think of Hawaii. 13/18, not bad for not knowing where any of the smaller, less mentioned in movies and TV US cities are

Got them all, started guessing random big cities before I even looked at the distance and knocked out about 12; the other six I had to think and refine my guess. Edmonton was the hardest, I was like 'dang no one lives in the middle of Canada.'

I went to Google maps and did directions on this. And there is an actual way from Mexico City to Honolulu that requires you to go Kayaking through the Pacific Ocean (Starting from Seattle)!!!!! And last year I searched 4 Johannesburg to Cairo and said that it could not calculate directions. And this year there is a way!!!!! (U make an S through Africa!!!!!)

and, like several people here, I got many of the answers by accident when typing in big cities. But I wasn't doing it on purpose. Like I would guess Tehran for Baghdad but Tehran was also on the list... I got everything eventually with about 4 minutes left but it wasn't that easy, even for a geography expert.

I would like to agree, but it's not that hard to multiply by 1,6 (or even 1,5) to have a good estimation of the distance in kms...

This quiz has 18 questions with 2 distances each. This means that in order to get all the distances in km you have to calculate x*1.6 36 times. And most of the distances are quite odd numbers, which are not so easy to calculate in your head: 934, 3784, 1547 etc.
For me it's a bit weird that even 2-3 years after the first people asked for the measurements in km nothing has changed.

100% correct! and I wasn't just typing in large city names. used distance as clues to narrow down to logical choices. but only had 40 seconds left due to misspelling of buenos aires.

I would disagree Frindle! I got 100% with 3:31 left. yes I admit I did type Baghdad for another city so got that one on a "guess" all others I got because I know my world map so had very good sense of what city would be that distance.

great idea, thanks....only suggestion is to format it so you have to answer a specific clue rather than be allowed to just type in a list of cities at will....then we'll see how many bleat "so easy"..thanks again

Well that was definitely one of the hardest - but most intriguing - quizzes I've done here. I was tempted to use a map but resisted, hence my score of 10! Would love doing more of these. But please!! In response to other quizzers, it's not just the US that uses miles. I'm in the UK and wouldn't even try to do this in km.

To all the miles/km people: JetPunk serves as a place to test your knowledge and (hopefully) expand it. This could be one of those quizzes that gives you an idea of the concept of miles. Even though most of the world goes by km (like me, as a Dutchman), it is never a waste of time to grasp the concept of miles, inches and so forth. Should you not want to learn about the imperial system, then you can always create a similar quiz in km, for the Americans and British to try :)
