    Being American is no advantage to me since it's been a long time since I was in school!:biggrin:

    I suppose I could do it but it would take a long time and I'd need pencil and paper.:blink:

    30 seconds. Lol but I had to memorize them in alphabetical order when I was a kid, and for some reason they stuck.

    I'm embarrassed to say that I did it with only 2:38 seconds left. I blame it on my stumbling over how to spell Mississippi and Massachusetts.

    The last two I had to think of were Mississippi and Colorado.. hehe..

    What I did was just try to think of my mental "map" of the United States and I had to think really hard.. haha.. work on the Southeast and then the Northeast, etc... Not sure what strategies you all used!!

    And boy, the people who can do it in 30 seconds or less... Wow!!! Good job! =D
