    So after we saw a tumblr post of an Aussie trying to name the 50 states of the US, a few of us decided it would be fun to try it ourselves.

    Karu trying to name all 50 states (spoiler'd because it's a LONG log)

    [21:05] <%Rex> http://24.media.tumblr.com/5600829df2c14cb1fb12bde5e1c662f4/tumblr_mvdkh4QXi51qm7oolo1_1280.jpg
    [21:06] <Shiny> XD
    [21:07] <%Rex> Is THIS one Maryland?
    [21:07] <Shiny> XDD
    [21:07] <Shiny> at least they got Texas, Alaska, and Hawaii
    [21:07] <Shiny> oh and Washington
    [21:07] <MrRMA> Those are the popular ones.
    [21:07] <Shiny> oh and Florida aka yeah that thing
    [21:08] <Karu> xD
    [21:08] <%Rex> They got California after a few guesses.
    [21:08] <Shiny> trues
    [21:08] <%Rex> I love how everything in the South East is Virginia except for Florida and somehow Virginia itself.
    [21:08] <Shiny> that's just so perfect XD
    [21:09] * Karu is curious how one of those would end up if he tried it.
    [21:09] <Shiny> XD
    [21:09] <P_M> Try it and post it
    [21:09] <Shiny> "i found out last week that you guys had 2 washingtons so im gonna guess this is washington 2"
    [21:09] <P_M> No cheating now~
    [21:09] <Shiny> ^
    [21:09] <Karu> xD
    [21:09] <Rain> Someone defiled a pumpkin with a pony.
    [21:09] <Karu> What, I gotta do it?
    [21:09] <%Rex> Also their assertion that the US and Australia are "about the same size" is apparently off by a factor of 2 million square kilometers.
    [21:09] <Shiny> yes Karu-nii
    [21:09] <Shiny> :'D
    [21:10] <Karu> Well someone get me the image so I can't cheat, then xD
    [21:10] <MrRMA> You set yourself up for it, Karu. Now you gotta pay up!
    [21:10] <Shiny> one sec Karu-nii~
    [21:10] <%Rex> http://0.tqn.com/d/geography/1/0/9/H/usa3.jpg
    [21:10] <Karu> I will, I will.
    [21:10] <Karu> Danke!
    [21:10] <Karu> Oh I'm fucked...
    [21:10] <Shiny> wait that doesn't include two of them
    [21:10] <Shiny> http://www.freeusandworldmaps.com/images/USPrintable/USA52BlankBWPrint.jpg
    [21:11] * Shiny pats Karu XD
    [21:11] <%Rex> Also I've no room to talk because I've forgotten which ones which in several places.
    [21:11] <Shiny> I know which one's my state!
    [21:11] <Shiny> ♥
    [21:11] <MrRMA> You know, this just reminded me...I for one, geographically don't know shit about my own countries middle region...
    [21:11] <Karu> I know NOTHING
    [21:11] <Karu> Actually
    [21:11] <Karu> Wait
    [21:11] <Karu> Wait
    [21:11] <Karu> Alaska
    [21:11] <Shiny> I barely remember the east coast for some reason
    [21:11] <Shiny> ... HAHAHAHA
    [21:11] <%Rex> I know a lot of the borders.
    [21:11] * P_M can name them all >:)
    [21:11] <Shiny> I can NAME them~
    [21:12] <Shiny> but like identifying will take a while
    [21:12] <%Rex> But as we move towards the centers I forget which one is which.
    [21:12] <Shiny> I probably can identify them
    [21:12] <MrRMA> I have to know the East Coast, for, well, fairly obvious reasons.
    [21:12] <Shiny> I remember almost everything in the middle
    [21:12] <Shiny> I really don't remember east coast all that well
    [21:12] <P_M> I can identify them all too
    [21:12] <MrRMA> Just call the top part New England and you've got several down at once!
    [21:12] <%Rex> East coast is easily enough.
    [21:12] <Karu> Yeah for you
    [21:13] <Shiny> XD
    [21:13] <Shiny> oh I can do this
    [21:13] * %Rex tries this himself to see how hard he fails at remembering some of the interior states.

    [21:19] <Shiny> which ones?
    [21:19] <%Rex> 3/48!
    [21:19] <P_M> But it's a city not a state so... XD
    [21:19] <%Rex> Since the map lacks Alaska and Hawaii.
    [21:19] <P_M> *3/50
    [21:19] <P_M> Oh
    [21:19] <Shiny> unless he's using the map I linked?

    [21:21] <P_M> I'll give you another hint. Myrtle Beach is in one of the Souths
    [21:21] <Rain> I want to witness this Download Fest thing for myself, it sounds great.
    [21:21] <%Rex> We also have... four News I think?
    [21:21] <Shiny> I think so?
    [21:21] <MrRMA> Just don't count the region that has New in the name
    [21:22] <Shiny> XDDD
    [21:22] <MrRMA> Also, yes, I currently reside in one of the "New" states, ironically one of the oldest ones.
    [21:22] <Karu> FUCK XD
    [21:22] <Karu> I put it in the wrong place then
    [21:22] <Shiny> XDD
    [21:23] <MrRMA> Oh lord, where did you think we were?
    [21:23] <Karu> ...

    Here's mine.

    I got 33 right.
    Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Michigan, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Hawaii, Alaska.
    I got 8 off by one state
    New Mexico, Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Kentucky, Iowa, Ohio, Indiana.
    And the remaining 9 I had no idea about. Mostly the square ones in the middle.
    Hilariously I had no idea where Colorado is and I've even been there! >=O
    I don't honestly think that's bad for someone who isn't American and has never formally studied the geography of the United States. I probably did better than I would with a map of the United Kingdom and counties, though to be fair that's because they keep changing. I know where major towns and cities are a lot better than I know where our administrative divisions are!

    If you want to use the same base as mine, it's here.
  3. Here's a game for this. You don't have to remember the placement, but you have to know the names, and how to spell them. Oh, and it's timed; you have 5 minutes. Try if you wish, and good luck!


    As I'm American, I got all of them, in the time of 2:06.
  4. I think the remembrance of places was harder than the names, as I pretty much got those down straight away

    (Not bothering with this. About the only states I can place are Texas and Florida, and while I sporadically remember names, I have no clues which block of the Unidentified States of America is which. XD)

  11. Not sure how everyone is doing this, no one is providing a link to where this quiz is only to results.
    Though it is probably better that I do not because since I am American and was made something of an expert by my high school junior year US History Class it might be considered a cheap shot.
    The class had a weekly and monthly ritual of state capital quizzes; five every Friday and all 50 once a month. At first I had struggled but then my bestie gave me a recording of 'Wakko's America' from The Animaniacs. Memorized that sucker and never got a single one wrong again.
