I thought it was gonna be easy. You can't look at any maps etc. I thought I used to have this states song I learned in elementary school but I couldn't remember it. I got 48 out of 50. It's harder than you think.

Eh; I'll just look at a map the next time I have the urge to mention all fifty states.

I spent 3 minutes trying to figure out how "Connecticut" was spelled. Otherwise, extremely easy. Just think of the map.

I got about 44 of them and then I cheated my butt off. Even cheating it was difficult. Somehow I missed Kansas and Oklahoma - I input them with about 40 seconds remaining.

46/50

I mispelled: Connecticut, Pennsylvania but I knew these...

I missed these: Utah, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi

Not bad for a foreigner (sp?)... I guess... heh!

I flew through it except for Wisconsin. I did get it, but it took forever to figure out the state I was missing. I have no idea why I would forget Wisconsin.

Had 49 with about 2 min left, kept thinking over and over visualizing the country in my head. I couldn't get the last one. Delaware.

Took me to 3:19 to get Colorado, stinking Donkeys!!

I missed Delaware. Had 2 minute left too. Spelling was a major obstacle.

But it was harder than I thought it would be.

6:32, took me two minutes to get the very last one.

I looked over the states and noticed I left out Nebraska.

With the help of my brilliant 14 year, we did it in 7 minutes. Took us 3 minutes to get Idaho. Even knowing the old joke!

14 year old:
Hi, I'm the brilliant 14 year-old! Still, I guess 7 minutes isn't something to be too proud of... At least we did it though. :D

I remembered the song from a 4th grade stage production we put on for parents.

I just remember I had 48 of them with like 3:30 left and I couldnt think of the last two.


Did anyone try to think of sports teams and divisions to help them out? Thats what I did on some of them. haha

That was surprisingly challenging. I made it in just over 5 minutes. I couldn't conceive of Vermont or Maryland for the life of me.

If you want to waste more time....trying putting the names with the state.

That timer was fast. I was matching them up as fast as I could with no errors and ended up using 3/4 of the clock.

Granted, this was the second time around, but I did it this time in under three minutes.

Got'em all in two minutes. Didn't have any problems with the last few, since I just moved from the NE to the south and out to the West in order.

Arizona and conneticut

rattled off the colonies on my fingers to 13, guess I thought I'd put conneticut in already. I missed arizona on the western states - I started on the four corners states and didn't get all 4 before jumping to some others.

5:27, but I spent about a minute and a half stalled at 48.

Alaska and Hawaii. I was only picturing the contiguous 48.

Had 49 with about 2 min left, kept thinking over and over visualizing the country in my head. I couldn't get the last one. Delaware.

Delaware appears to be the stumper.

I got it (for #50) with 1:14 left.

Woo-hoo!

LOL! You have a Kansas State logo, live in Arkansas, both of which border Missouri and Oklahoma! And you're on a board that is mostly Missourians! How could you miss those two? Sorry, no offense, but that's just too funny!

I got them all in 2 minutes 14 seconds. I would have cracked 2 minutes, but I typoed the hell out of oklahoma and took a while to figure out that i was missing the first "a".

Some of you may remember the 50 states that rhyme song in grade school. I was forced to memorise that song in 2nd grade and now, about 20 years later, I still remember it. To me this was just a typing contest, rattling them out on the keyboard in alphabetical order.

It's embarrassing that people can't name all 50 states. It's UN-AMERICAN.

Same here. I got 49 with about 4 minutes to spare and never could figure out Delaware. I knew I was missing a New England state and still couldn't get it.

I got all 50 with 1:09 to spare. I would have done it with about 4 minutes left, but I could not figure out what states I was missing.

I was visually going over the map in my mind. I was missing Hawaii and Alaska. I felt dumb when I figured it out.
