Wasn't This A Failed NBC Reality Show Once?

So this game is awesome. If you have me friended on Facebook, you've already seen this, but I have a quiz for you and it has nothing to do with Sporcle this time.

The game is called GeoGuessr. You are dropped in a random location on Google Street. You are permitted to walk around to get a better gauge of your location, but no zooming out of street view. You are provided with a world map, and your task is to pinpoint, on that map, where exactly you've been dropped. The closer you get, the more points you score. One game lasts five rounds.

Nothing is technically stopping you from using Google in another tab to assist you, but it wouldn't be sporting, now, would it?

If you top 15,000 points, you did all right; if you top 20,000, you kicked butt.
