I missed five states, but apparently spelling makes a difference in this quiz because I didnt spell Massachusetts correctly. I missed Alaska, Hawaii, Delaware, Virginia, and Mass.

True, typing fast does make a difference as well. Fun though even if you miss a few states.

I did it and had 07:46 left!
Would have been better, but I couldn't spell conn.

(I learned that silly little song when I was in the first grade and haven't forgotten it-guess it did come in handy!)

Omg- that is amazing! It took me 3 tries to get them all. Vermont, massachusetts, nevada, and oklahoma were hard for me to remember, in general.
