I Asked 20 Friends to Draw San Francisco From Memory
A few months ago, one of my co-workers asked our other co-workers to draw a map of the United States. I don't want to spoil anything for you, but ohmygod, people are TERRIBLE at geography. I mean, see for yourself. Anyway, never one to turn down an opportunity to humiliate people (what? I humiliate myself daily.), I decided I would give my friends and colleagues an outline of San Francisco and ask them to fill in the neighborhoods purely from memory. On the honor system.
The results are both informative (people know SF better than I'd expect/are maybe just massive cheaters) and hilarious (apparently the only reason anyone goes to Potrero is to go to The Ramp). See the results for yourself:
