I find it interesting that somehow the australians (taking this quiz) overlook/seem to have forgotten that the other states all have cardinal directions in them. Seeing the results the reason should be immediately clear why it is the case. But somehow they overlook it.

Very funny/interesting. Like how people don't hear the train anymore when they live right next to the tracks. Or don''t see the mess in their house anymore because they have gotten used to it. overlooking what is ríght there! I find this very interesting material.

Reminds me of that effect where people miss a guy in a gorilla suit when focussed on another task. This has nothing to do directly with the scenario here, but is also an interesting psychological phenomena :)

TLDR> Interesting how people can get so used to things, they fail to see the obvious. Sorry for the big post :)

Do the directions help that much? South Australia is hardly the southernmost state, nor is the Northern Territory the most northerly. Also that explanation only works if people are just pretty much guessing randomly and have no knowledge of Australia. Regardless of the lack of any clues in the name, I'm guessing people would be more likely to get California in a US states quiz than any other, or Ontario on a Canadian provinces quiz. If one had even the most cursory knowledge of Australian states and territories, one would expect NSW and Victoria to be easy to get.

Also, if you are just trying to go by direction hints you'd think New South Wales is either South Australia or Victoria

I am at a loss as to why so many jetpunkers get their knickers in a twist over the time allotted. What earthly difference does it make if there is time over when you finish a quiz?.......... move on to another quiz. But to spend time whingeing about having time left on the clock is ridiculous. Remember ..... you are not being charged for time remaining.

Well, they need to do something with that left over time, so they fill it with whine. Ow wait, the time stops when you ace it, actually in the case it stops when ou 100% mess it up too ( or partially) so they actually don't have leftover time.

Yea, I guess they just like being difficult or something.

Traveling in a fried-out Kombi

On a hippie trail, heads full of zombie

Met a strange lady, she made me nervous

She took me in and made me breakfast

And she said...

Do you come from a land down under?

Where women glow and men plunder.

Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?

You better run, you better take cover

Buying bread from a man in Brussels

6'4" and full of muscles

I said "do ya speak-a my language?"

He just smiled and gave me a Vegemite sandwich

And he said...

I come from a land down under

Where beer does flow, and men chunder

Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder

You better run, you better take cover

Lyin' in a den in Bombay

A slack-jaw, and not much to say

I said to the man "Are you trying to tempt me?

Because I come form the land of plenty."

And he said...

Do you come from a land down under?

Where women glow and men plunder.

Can't you hear, can't you hear the thunder?

You better run, you better take cover
