Al Franken draws the USA

Now right off the bat, I want to point out that having Al Franken’s video on here is not in any way an endorsement or political statement or anything. I think he is running for Congress, but I couldn’t even tell you which side he’s on. The reason Al Franken makes it on the blog today is because in this video, which you can find below, he draws a near-perfect map of the USA from memory, in about 3 minutes. I had to share it with you!
This seriously blows my mind! Especially because after I watched this video I tried myself, and drew the USA from memory as best I could. Let me tell you that it took me a LOT more than 3 minutes! I had mistakes in mine too, for example my placement of Arkansas. (Whoops!) Below the video, you can find my attempt at drawing the map, which was a mess and ended up needing a second piece of paper cause I drew the eastern half of the country too big… :)

your map looks more fun than his!
but (not criticizing) you forgot the Upper Penninsula of Michigan! Maybe it floated away up into Canada…
