Fifty States

Think you can names all fifty states in under ten minutes? Really? Test yourself here.

I did it with 5:15 left on the clock, with most of the last minute spent trying to figure out what one state I forgot. I'll name it in the comments, and I think you'll agree I should be allowed to forget it.

Consider this an open time trial. No cheating, no maps, no nothing. The clock begins when you click on it, so be prepared.

Go!

The last one that had me thinking hard was Arkansas. I mean, seriously. Arkansas?

The next-to-last one was America's wang, Florida.

Damn. I got em with 3:00 remaining. But I had 49 states after only 4 minutes. Took me 3 minutes to think of Missouri!

(I think maybe I'm still pissed about last season's NLCS.)

Sounds just like me -- a quick tour, and then wracking my brain for the missing one.

To quote Grandpa Simpson, "I'll be deep in the cold, cold ground before I recognize Missouri!"

I hit a mental block with Arizona. I got it, but it took fully 2 minutes to remember it. I must be blocking that state out of my mind for some reason...maybe somebody lives there I don't like...

Did it with 7:10 to spare.

This might explain why I didn't date much in high school.

Or college.

Or graduate school.

I got 45 of them in roughly geographic order (I learn visually) in about three minutes or so, and I went back and thought of four more: Idaho, Nevada, Delaware and West Virginia.

I actually had to look at a map to figure out Utah existed. I actually drove through Utah once, but it was at night.

5:46 remaining. Kentucky is the one that took me more than a minute to get.

You saw everything you needed to see.

I got it with only 37 seconds left. I ran out at about 45 states, then went through the NFL to get the rest. Colorado, Arizona, and Wisconsin were the last 3 for me.

Wow. Y'all are like, smart and such. I was only able to name 41.

Damn Delaware, Indiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Carolina,
Oklahoma, South Carolina, Utah, and Wyoming messed me up.
