Fifty States in Ten Minutes

Can you name all 50 states without consulting a map? I admit I consulted the map in my head as I did this quiz from Ironic Sans. You have ten minutes from page load to type in all 50 states. Yes, spelling counts. I did it in just over four minutes. It would have been much faster except I skipped Nevada and had to search my mental map for it. Link -via Metafilter

Funny to see myself forget (for a minute) Pennsylvania, given that I live in New York State, about 70 miles from PA. Michigan was the last state I recalled, which is odder still since I was born and raised about 20 miles from its border. Nebraska was very late in the game but didn't stump me because of Internet "fill out your state" forms: for New York I need to hit the N key 6 times to get to this state, so I knew I was missing an N state when there were only 4 in front of New York on my "done" list. Lucked out and finished with 2:20 to go. Fun! Now to test my kids...
