Brain Exercise: 50 States in 10 Minutes

Ironic Sans is photographer David Friedman's entertaining blog. David (as he refers to himself) first attracted notice with his pre-pixilated clothes, hilarious tee shirts with "pre-pixilated" logos suitable for TV (no accidental advertising).

Now David has up a post about a game he likes to play with his friends, in which he tries to remember and write down the names of all 50 U.S. states in 10 minutes. One of his readers designed this terrific online version. If you have 10 minutes to spare, click on it and give it a try!

I got 38 on my first try. Is that good or lame?

Update: I got 39 on my second try. That's exhausting!

The next jump in the process would be to try the state capitals.

Now THAT would be trivia, since I'd guess most of us don't know most of the state capitals in the first place. But every schoolchild in Americans knows all fifty states, which makes it a fun (and grueling) exercise in recall.
