So I kinda sorta cheated. (But, yeah, naming all 50 states in thirty seconds is my favorite lame party trick that impresses people for some reason. Unless they went to my elementary school.)


I've got the same thing with the Presidents in order from an elementary school song. As for this thing, I forgot Minnesota of all places.

    Blarrrrgeh.

Yep, ol' Nevada got me too.

I remember parts of "50 Nifty United States", so that helped a lot.

Nope.

The last two that had stumped me were Maryland and Delaware. Damn Mid-Atlantic region...the one place I've never actually been in the US.

Getting the provinces is easy. Spelling them is hard.

Like a lot of people, I got through 48 in about 4 minutes, then had trouble figuring out what two I'd missed (Wisconsin and Maine, as it turns out). Finally got the last one with 3:12 left.

Oliver, the District of Columbia is not a state.

OFB, is that the same "Turkey In The Straw" song that the Animaniacs do, with the state capitals? Because 20 years ago would have been pre-Animaniacs, of course.

Inspired stuff.

Speaking of Jeopardy and state capitals, this was an interesting Final J! this week: What is the largest city (in terms of population) in the US with no team in the NFL, NBA, NHL, or MLB? (Yes, it's a state capital.)


Answer Below: Highlight text to read

Austin, Texas. I got it, but no one on the show did!

Is this worth starting a new thread? Name all 192 UN member states in 10 minutes.

I got 80 but I got a phone call in the middle of it.

I got 99, and there were 3 (2 Congolese nations, Bosnia-Herzegovinia, Suriname) I missed due to spelling/naming convention issues.

Got 'em all with 47 seconds remaining; Kansas and Iowa tripped me up for the longest time.

Does anybody here have thier ISP through a satalite company? I recently moved out into the country and have no cable available. I have Direct TV and dial up now. Dial up is painfully slow, and I was looking into the Satalite Internet through DirecTV.
