I finished with 1:07 left. I could have got about 1:20 or so but I couldn't spell Connecticut for a bit.

Which were you missing?

Connecticut. And Wisconsin I was typing when time ran out. I was blanking on Wisconsin. Then again when you give me a time limit that I can see I usually forget more stuff.

Finished with 2:04 left! Would have been faster but I blanked out on Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. I heeded previous warnings and typed Connecticut in first. =D

I was surprised that the average score was only 37. I finished all 50 with 1:23 to spare, and only because I'm not an incredibly fast typist.

I got 37/50 on this test, I got stuck on the spelling on Massachusetts though, it took me like a minute to get.

Not knowing all the states doesn't bother me though seeing as how I am not quite from America, and I know a lot of other useful things :D

Yeah, you did misspell Massechusetts. Haha. I don't really care since you're not from America.

This quiz and every other quiz on that site is telling me that being a doctor is making me dumber. Only today do I realise that the last time I even looked at a map of the US was actually in Grade 4.

And the last time I looked at a map of the world... that would have been in high school too.

And the last time I looked at a periodic table was in high school.

Time to hit the atlas!
