Confederate Flag Spotted in GeoGuesser Game Doesn’t Narrow Down Anything


BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Local gamer Brandon Farley was unable to narrow his location down further than the United States in a game of GeoGuessr after spotting a Confederate Flag on the back of a pickup truck, according to close sources.

“Usually spotting a regional flag like that is incredibly helpful in GeoGuessr, but once you already know you’re in the U.S., you can see a Confederate flag literally anywhere,” Farley explained. “I live in upstate New York and I see them all the time. I see people who I know who have literally never left New York in their entire lives who feel a ‘connection to the South.’ Spotting a racist person in the United States simply doesn’t cross a single state off the list of possibilities.”

According to those familiar with the situation, Farley struggled with various potential identifying features of the location he had landed on in GeoGuessr.

“Maybe if this game existed like 40 years ago, it would be more playable in the U.S., but you can’t even use storefronts anymore. There’s like five kinds of stores and six kinds that exist in this country and they’re all over the place. Like, oh cool, a McDonalds, that sure helps me out,” Farley complained. “I know I’m not in a city because I just see long stretches of highway through grassy areas, but again, that can be literally anywhere. Maybe it would be easier if I saw a fucking train or something, but our country decided that we’re too cool for those!”

At press time, Farley submitted an answer and learned that the location he was trying to figure out was in southern England.
