50 state challenge

Ever see that episode of Friends when Ross bet he could name all 50 states without studying or looking at a map? I’ve always wanted to do that, so I’m going to try it here. I’ve not studied, looked at a map, or googled it. Here we go:

  1. Florida
  2. Georgia
  3. South Carolina
  4. North Carolina
  5. Virginia
  6. Maryland
  7. Delaware
  8. Pennsylvania
  9. New York
  10. Rhode Island
  11. Massachusetts
  12. Connecticut
  13. Vermont
  14. New Hampshire
  15. Maine
  16. Ohio
  17. Indiana
  18. Kentucky
  19. Tennessee
  20. Alabama
  21. Mississippi
  22. Louisiana
  23. Arkansas
  24. Missouri
  25. Iowa
  26. Wisconsin
  27. North Dakota
  28. South Dakota
  29. Nebraska
  30. Kansas
  31. Oklahoma
  32. Texas
  33. New Mexico
  34. Arizona
  35. Colorado
  36. Utah
  37. Wyoming
  38. Montana
  39. Idaho
  40. Washington
  41. Oregon
  42. Nevada
  43. California
  44. Hawaii
  45. Alaska

Well crap. Turns out there’s only 45 states. Who did I forget? Dang! I really thought I could do it.

UPDATE: Okay, I forgot West Virginia, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and New Jersey. How the heck did I forget them? Ugh.

UPDATE 2: Now if you want to make this a spiritual challenge, try Kevin’s challenge!

    Oh no thanks. Sounds pre-schoolish.

  • I’m with Karin. I remember all 50 because of the song. Plus, it’s really cool when you get to the “N” states: Nebraska, Nevadaaaaaa … New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico (clap clap) New York…
