    I got 23/25 also. Fucked up the top 10 largest cities (I knew it was a toss up between Vegas and Phoenix) and the number of capitals that begin with S or C (I forgot Salt Lake City for the S's)

    22 of 25. Every question I missed was from the Eastern time zone, which seemed to be featured in this quiz. I got lucky guessing the highway that went down the east coast.

    20 out of 25. I stink at geography. Always have. Is my computer particularly slow or does that site run very slowly?

    The letters 'S' and 'C' are the most common letters that begin state capitals. How many capitals begin with each of these letters?

    What is the only US state with two panhandles?

    VT/NH state outline.

    22/25. It could have been 10/25 and I still wouldn't have had thoughts of suicide, since it's geography.

    But anyway, WV????? It's shaped like a nugget of shit. Where's the panhandle.

    It was painfully slow for me, but I attributed it to using a netbook on hotel wifi.

    I thought it was because everytime you answered a question, the page essentially reloaded meaning all the ads, pictures, tweets, comments, facebook information also had to reload.

    Yeah, that was bad. It also didn't help that every question required two page loads. The site should have been designed to give you the answer to the previous question and the next question on the same page... or better yet have all the questions on one page.

    Pffft. 14. My worst subject. A couple I got wrong that shouldn't have.

    Stupid east coast questions.

    Hell, I didn't know any other states other than Florida had a panhandle.

    "How many US state capitals are named for US presidents? "
    "The letters 'S' and 'C' are the most common letters that begin state capitals. How many capitals begin with each of these letters? "

    These I just guessed...poorly.

    "With an estimated 7,705 people living there in 2009, what is the least populous state capital? "
    I thought it was Juneau, I have no shame in this one.

    "Which state capital is pictured here? "
    I clicked the wrong fucking button.

    "Which lake is pictured on this map? "
    Total brain fart. I knew that.

    "Which southern US state is pictured here?"
    I always get Alabama and Mississippi mixed up.

    "Which major American city is pictured here?"
    I had this down to Chicago and LA...I guessed wrong.

    "Which American river is seen here?"
    Another brain fart. Completely out thought myself, I knew that.

    If you think of the two states like faces and the little dip is the neck, Alabama faces the Atlantic.

    Think of it in British terms, the city of Jefferson. It makes some sense.

    I just had a lucky guess for that. I can probably name 20 of them anymore.

    The way I remember Mississippi/Alabama is by saying "MA."

    I remember it by thinking Alabama has to be the worst place in the country. It's crowded between a bunch of similar looking deep south states, and at least Mississippi is next to those lunatics in Texas. And their claim to infamy is being the most racist state. Stereotype or not, infamy or not, it's better than a claim to nothing.

    It doesn't make sense it's called Jefferson City.


    Wait, this quiz doesn't count against my grade?
