All 50 states, in seven minutes -- four of which I needed to figure out Ohio and West Virginia.

Got 49 in under five minutes. Took me an entire minute to remember Washington.

Glad to be able to type and spell.

growing up across the border from detroit, i was well versed in u.s. geography, the same could not be said for some americans i knew

there's no way i could get all fifty states in 10 minutes, but i'm pretty sure i could get them all, most of my american friends couldn't name one province (and there's only ten, not including the 2 territories), including the one right across the border from them

I got 49 in 7 minutes..and nothing came to me in the last 3 minutes.

However, one such geography triv site does this same test but gives you all the state's outlines and colors in the ones you name. That is a big help.

<big dope slap> Indiana is the one I missed.

@Ragman,
I concentrated on remember all those "I" states ragman, because they're easy to get mixed up.

I always have trouble remembering all the new england states, which was stupid this time because I just drove though some of them a couple of week ago.

(btw, I got some way cool pictures of Stephen Kings house in Bangor, played with the colors to make it really spooky looking)

Montana and Colorado? 2 of those square(ish) states I tend to forget about. Weird again because I'd like to visit them.

I should go back and take that test now, I took it right before bed.

50 states with 06:57 left.

Verbally, I could do it in 15 seconds ... and alphabetically.

One of my hidden talents.

I had 48 in under seven minutes. Then I forgot Nevada and Rhode Island. Never did recover from that.
