I really wish they kept statistics so we could award most forgetable state.
Comment with which ones you forgot.
Seems like there are a few states that are forgettable.
I like the every county in England challenge.

Took me 5 minutes to remember Nebraska. And I live in Kansas.
Also forgot about PEI, Saskatchewan and Yukon.
Bonus quiz: 13/13
As another challenge try all the countries in the European Union.
How did you do with the EU one?
omg after doing the quiz, and then reading your replies i feel dumb.
i am not smarter than a fifth grader!
You forgot:Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Indiana, Iowa,
Maine, Minnesota, New Jersey, Vermont, West Virginia,
hahah! okay i have lived in cali my whole life, and im sorta west coast centric, but I forgot florida! omg - i was surprised that i forgot Indiana - where the heck is Indiana?
It's like Illinois, but with Indianapolis instead of Chicago.
And I'm going to go ahead and say New Jersey is the most forgettable state.

Got all 50 states in 5 mins, but I almost forgot michigan.
Got all the states with several minutes to spare (spelled them right, too!).
I got all but four of the EU countries, and incorrectly guessed a few which are just candidates (Bosnia) or have applied and withdrawn (Norway).
Couldn't get your quizzes to work in my Camino, but doubt I would have remembered more than half the Canadian provinces.
I take that back about the web script quizzes -- I just wasn't spelling things correctly, so it wasn't doing anything. (Usually when my browser doesn't respond to a entry box or button, I assume it's some Apple/Camino conflict with the webpage.)
I got 9/15 of the Soviet Republics, but I couldn't spell Kazakhstan.
That's funny. my manager was trying to list all 50 states during a slow night on Tuesday.
I named all Canadian provinces and territories in only 1 minute and 44 second! and that includes time to read the instructions, because I didn't even know what was coming when I clicked on the link. yay for me!
There's something with your soviet republics quiz. I've got them all, but won't accept Armenia and Kazakhstan. I know I'm spelling them right.
I'm not even waiting for the clock to run out. I know I'm right.
Oops. Yeah, I got distracted after I made that one, so yeah. You totally caught the errors there.

Malta! Pshaw, that hardly counts.
Wyoming, Michigan, and Alabama. Ask me tomorrow and I'll tell you different.
Couldn't spell Nunavut for the life of me, but you only need 12 for some reason. They have a neat syllabary
Yeah, Nunavut's a toughy.
And the bug's been fixed.
Seems like Wyoming and New Jersey are the most forgettable states so far.

My favourite countries quiz is to name 10 countries with four letters in their (English) names. Can you do up that?
Just need a list of them.
