I know all the US States on the map of USA, I can name them all in relation to their position to each other, yet when it came to alphabetical I didn't have enough time to finish, trying to work out the alphabetical order especially in the M's and the N's, only got 1 point for my trouble.

Aug 29, 2017
When I was young many older people referred to the country as "Old Mexico". I'm guessing that started when New Mexico became a state. I said something to my grandmother once about Mexico and she asked, "Which one, new or old?"

When did they come up with this fifty-nifty song? I never heard of it. My son, who is 18, says he never heard of it either.

It’s funny, but I grew up in New Jersey, and I don’t have any recollection of having to memorize all the states. I do remember though, very clearly, having to memorize all the counties in New Jersey! 😅

Well, Uncle Joe has a little weird grasp on reality, so it actually really seems more likely that DC will become the 51 at the moment. Or at least, I haven't heard him speaking about how the Puertoricans deserve a representation.

I find Arkansas is the most forgettable state. I don't even notice it when I look at the map.

Level 59
May 1, 2023
No, it’s definitely either Delaware or South Carolina.
+1
Level 50
Sep 15, 2023
South Carolina I don't think is very easy to forget about. Delaware is more likely, but becomes easier to remember because of its extremely awkward geometric boundary with Maryland.

Well, I got them all with 33 seconds remaining... and I have NEVER learned a song for this! Haha kinda proud of myself (for those who did learn the song, congrats on finding the one place you'll ever need to know the states in alphabetical order instead of by where they are 😉 😄 ).
