Just discovered on Reddit, this looks like fun and could be quite the time waster.

I got 3 that were good. 2 miles out on King's Cross, spot on with the Golden Gate bridge, and got another a few miles away.

There's a trick to the monuments one. Don't zoom in too closely just on the capital it will give you the monument within 5 miles. Either that or I am magic.

I've had a request to post this:

Bet you can't guess who the request was from.

That has the polar bear at about 720 meters - can't be right surely..

Looking it up here, maximum dive depth is given as around 14 meters.

Polar bear is at 18-28 metres, depending whether you're going from head or feet?

Was 8 for 10 on just England. The only ones I got wrong were Glasgow and Cardiff. I'd actually guessed at Cardiff, but wrote it off because it isn't in England. I should have guessed Glasgow as I spent a lot of time there in the late 90s.

The perks of extensive travel for work back in the day.
