When listing all the 50 US States, which are the one/s you always or mostly forget?

Mine are Wyoming or Iowa.

I can't remember.

Anything in the middle

by Anonymousreply 3Last Thursday at 1:07 PM

Iowa, yes,. And often Arkansas (but not Kansas). Sometimes Nebraska.

It's some of the state capitols I can't remember anymore. I don't have any problem remembering the states.

You mean like Frankfort, KY, and Pierre, SD?

Puerto Rico

Yes, r6, the ones that have a city(cities) that are more well known and you think they're the capitol and they're not. I always remember Pierre and Bismarck, but can't always remember which Dakota gets which.

You also have trouble remembering that a CAPITOL is a building. A CAPITAL is a city.

It's kind of hard to forget a state...

Perhaps this will help.

All of them ??

by Anonymousreply 13Last Thursday at 1:32 PM

None of them, as I successfully made it through elementary school.

by Anonymousreply 14Last Thursday at 1:33 PM

I knew the states and capitals in second grade.

by Anonymousreply 15Last Thursday at 1:37 PM

r15 - me, too.

by Anonymousreply 16Last Thursday at 1:42 PM

No one needs to know every state except for California and her future territories like Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Colorado....etc...etc

OK, without looking it up, who can name the last FIVE states admitted to the Union?

by Anonymousreply 18Last Thursday at 1:52 PM

Hawaii, Alaska, New Mexico, Arizona and Oklahoma (off top of my head)

by Anonymousreply 19Last Thursday at 1:53 PM

Nebraska. I just never, ever think about that state. Ever. I don't even ever see news items from that Nebraska, come to think of it.

by Anonymousreply 20Last Thursday at 1:55 PM

The only five states I haven't visited are: MT, ID, ND, SD, and NE.

by Anonymousreply 21Last Thursday at 1:56 PM

SD, NE, KS and KY for me.

by Anonymousreply 22Last Thursday at 1:58 PM

I can only do three, r18.

by Anonymousreply 23Last Thursday at 2:01 PM

I forget none, I learned all fifty states when I was in grade school and can pick them out on a map without names or borders. I also knew all the countries of the world then, but there have been so many additions and names changes since I would struggle with some in Africa and the former Soviet Union. I can also name all the provinces of Canada and states of Australia.

by Anonymousreply 24Last Thursday at 2:02 PM

I have trouble with the Pacific Island countries (Vanuatu, etc), R24.

But can you name everyone of your grade school teachers...including their first names?

by Anonymousreply 27Last Thursday at 2:06 PM

^ every space one

by Anonymousreply 28Last Thursday at 2:07 PM

I couldn't name a single grade school teacher, I only remember things that are important to me.

by Anonymousreply 29Last Thursday at 2:08 PM

First names? Not all of them, but most I think.

by Anonymousreply 30Last Thursday at 2:12 PM

Some of us are old enough to remember countries on the map like the Belgian Congo, French Equatorial Africa, Ceylon, Rhodesia, Malaya, Tanganyika, British Guiana, etc.

by Anonymousreply 31Last Thursday at 2:12 PM

I've managed to meet folks from more obscure African countries like Burkina Faso (I almost wrote Upper Volta), Chad, Congo-Brazzaville and Sierra Leone.

Upon meeting a fellow from Djibouti, I mentioned: "Ah! Terretoire des Afars et Isas!" He replied proudly the HE was an Afar!

by Anonymousreply 32Last Thursday at 2:23 PM

I don't even know what NE stands for...what fucking state is that?

by Anonymousreply 33Last Thursday at 2:49 PM

If you know geography, it’s pretty easy to picture the map and just list them off as you consider each one’s location. There’s no reason for forgetting one.

That’s easy, because there have been only five states added in the 20th century.

by Anonymousreply 39Last Thursday at 2:57 PM

Okay R1 to R39 - fess up: How often do you actually makes lists of all 50 states.

Without resorting to cut and paste from Wikipedia.


by Anonymousreply 40Last Thursday at 2:58 PM

[quote] How often do you actually makes lists of all 50 states.

As many times as I am asked to.

by Anonymousreply 41Last Thursday at 3:04 PM

Did you know that more states (6) were added during President Benjamin Harrison’s single term than under any other president?

by Anonymousreply 42Last Thursday at 3:06 PM

[quote] But can you name everyone of your grade school teachers...including their first names?

It would be kind of odd to even know their first names as a kid.

by Anonymousreply 43Last Thursday at 3:06 PM

Bahaahaha! No, R36. I am not also R33. That's a great reason for me not to visit NE, and also a great way to remember it, R38.

by Anonymousreply 44Last Thursday at 3:14 PM

I knew their names as a kid. First and third grades I know their last names, but not first. Otherwise: 2) Helen 4) Grace 5) Ben 6) Katherine 7) Harold 8) Ed.

North Dakota

by Anonymousreply 46Last Thursday at 3:34 PM


by Anonymousreply 47Last Thursday at 3:48 PM

I can reduce the number to 33 if that helps.

Here are 17 states that count for fuck all and would not be much missed*: Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin, Wyoming.

*Not counting states that I dislike and would never want to visit like Texas and Florida, but which have some importance.
