One common complaint waged against Americans is that they don”t know the geography of Europe. Most Americans even have a hard time locating multiple European countries on a map at one time. While this may be true, someone decided to give Europeans a test of their own. Many of the countries in Europe are roughly the size of some US states, so this test was given to Europeans to see if they could label our states…

Apparently, everyone is comfortable with identifying California, Texas and Florida…but the rest of the states? not so much. You”re not too savvy yourself, Europeans. (Although, to be fair, there are 50 states and…28 countries in the European Union? Maybe? …eh, I need a map.)
