I don't know why, but randomly I put Rhode Island. I had like two seconds left and my brain could only think "Hey, Rhode Island sound like the shortest and best state to do!" I mean seriously dude I still had Iowa left and I put gosh darn Rhode Island? The human brain can be wacky sometimes. Anyways, to whomever is reading this have a fantastic rest of your day, or go to bed as soon as you can.

I've made a system that allows me to get 37 states. Omitted Mississippi, Conneticut, North and South Dakota, North and South Carolina, Louisiana, New Jersey, New Hampshire, pennsylvania, West Virginia, Massechusetts. Focusing on every other state. Might add New Jersey, Mississippi, and New Hampshire to get an even 40.

Shortcuts and tips in alphabetical presentation:

1. Connecticut (spell it with 'connect' and 'icut' in mind)

2. Illinois - ilinois

3. Louisiana - luisiana

4. Minnesota - minesota

5. Mississippi - misisipi

6. Missouri - misuri

7. New Hampshire - nh

8. New Jersey - nj

9. Pennsylvania - pensylvania

10. Tennesee - tenesee

Finally, it will help to practice alphabetically. A systematic attack aids muscle memory.

Please do not ACTUALLY omit letters from state names for the sole purpose of doing well on this quiz. NH and NJ are helpful, though, but weird that they are accepted at all.

That is because an official JetPunk type in for New York (city), is NYC, and the city shares the same name with the state.

It's definitely possible to get all 50. It is really, really helpful to know the states in alphabetical order prior to taking the quiz, which I did. There are several U.S. state songs (the one I used was called "Fifty States that Rhyme") on YouTube. If you listen to one of them and get it stuck in your head, it makes the quiz much easier to complete in a specific, fixed order. It took me a while to get past 44 states, but I finally got all 50. Using some of the U.S. state type-ins can definitely be a massive time saver -- NH for New Hampshire and NJ for New Jersey. You can also - albeit sneakily -- type NYC to fill in New York, as this is a standard type-in on JetPunk quizzes.
