    Default Name all of the States

    Thought it would be fun to quiz ourselves and see how fast we can do it It is easier because it shows a map and puts the names in when you get it right. You DO have to spell them correctly though.

    Fastest one gets bragging rights

    Well I did it!! And yes, I totally cheated!! I started and suddenly my brain completely fogged over and I couldn't remember them. On a good day I'm pretty sure I would at least have gotten half on my own.

    Now the provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, PEI, Yukon Territory, Nunavut and North West Territory (had to look that one up, ugg, I suck!).

    I used to be able to name them all in less than 2 min. My memory appears to be sadly depleated though.

    I don't think I could name all 50 states if my life depended on it. Is that weird?? I can do all the provinces, territories and their capitals

    ETA: I could name 26! No cheating.

    I don't think it's weird. How many Americans can name all of the provinces, territories and their capitols? I mean, except for me.

    Some of those interior ones are very tricky. They always mess me up! And all the little ones in the east? Why do you need so many states USA? 10/13 is a much better #!
