We’ve had some heavy stuff on the blog lately, and there’s more coming tomorrow, so let’s take a little break from serious content today.
A friend posted a link to the Washington Post’s subway identification quiz and said someone should do it for airports. So I did.
If you’re reading this via email, then I’m guessing you’re going to need to click through to the post to take the quiz. This one looks at the silhouettes of the terminals at 12 domestic US airports. If you like this, I’ll look to do an international one as well.
Good luck! Leave a note in the comments if you like this kind of thing.
