Can you find Bobo-Dioulasso, Tabriz, and Longyearbyen on a map in 60 seconds or less?

Yeah, me neither.

How about some easier ones, like Honolulu, Baghdad, and Mumbai?

In honor of Santa and his eight marvelously fit, geographically savvy reindeer who were pulling that sleigh long before MapQuest and Google Earth, I'd like to share with you my newest "Hang on, Griffin, I'll change your diaper in a minute" distraction: Globetrotter XL, a dangerously addictive, frequently humbling free online geography game. I haven't made it past level seven yet!

Good luck and bon voyage.
