    4:30 remaining. It took 2-3 minutes to remember Maryland and Massachusetts. Before that, Washington & Oregon stumped me briefly.

    I started off trying to do the map thing, starting in New England, which I feared would be the toughest, but then I started just doing it by college conferences (now, which states are in the SEC? the ACC? the Big 10 & Big 12?)

    Finally I resorted to thinking alphabetically. At work, we use state checklists that I look at frequently and I finally realized the "M" category seemed a bit low.

    Great link - I'm going to email it to torture some family.

    I forgot New Jersey -- which is pretty bad, considering my father was born outside of Newark.

    I got 49 States in about 4 Minutes and spent 4 Minutes typing in multiple spellings of Massachusetts until I finally hit on the right combination of letters.
    They should allow abreviations. I haven't actually spelled these out in 40+ years.

    At least I know how to spell it now.

    I can't type that fast.

    did it in 3:10. Geographically is the way to go. define regions and picture the map.

    Technique: always pair it with Viriginia. When naming states that is. As soon as you say/type Virginia, say or type West Viriginia.

    I did it in 2:80 and would have been faster if I could type with fewer spelling errors. I actually did it without singing the afore mentioned song. I started in NE where all the small states are and then just moved from N to S and back up again like I was using a paintbrush to paint the states on the map. The only area where it gets a little tricky is for the Northwest Ordinance States and Mississippi-Alabama, because they line up better horizontally than vertically.

    Hey we did the same thing. I finally got nebraska and then maryland with 1:30 to go. I tried to remember the song but it wasn't too helpful.

    Never let facts get in the way of a good rant.
