This used to be a barroom bet. I learned to do it by picturing a map of the lower 48, transiting from New England and going East to West. Its not difficult (especially when drinks were at stake)

Darn W's. I had 6 minutes left to get the last two. Wisconsin came to me a few minutes later. Washington? Who goes there?

@Rockhead,
not only do you have to type, they have to spelled correctly. I had fun with a couple...

I got 49 quickly and could not think of the 50th. Kept working rows of states in my head. I missed Hawaii.

@Victor Murphy,
That was frustrating. I named all but one state in five minutes and then sat here for another 5 trying to figure out which one I'd forgotten. I even knew what part of the country it was in. Nebraska, grrr.

You forgot:Arkansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Nebraska,

I didn't forget them. I couldn't spell FRIGGING Tennessee and that cost me about two minutes!!!

Love this.

That was fun. It frustrated me till I just started working through the alphabet. That made it a lot easier for me.

@littlek,
I had a hard time spelling Massachusetts - but I mulled good 2 minutes on
the very last state and couldn't get it. When it showed up - I hit my forehead!
