There’s a website with a little game, challenging you to name all 50 states. I sight read maps for a living. I just wanted to race the clock.
A little under four minutes later, I was finished. I clicked on the results to see how others had done. That”s when I got a real shock.
Below you will find the most forgotten (or perhaps mispelled¹) U.S. States, as well as how your score stacks up against everyone else who took this quiz.
Texas was the most recognized state. 98.4% of the respondents picked it out correctly. Then came California, Washington and New York.
I looked for Connecticut. Zip.
But it was there! We are the very last entry on the list – number 50!
Connecticut was identified (and correctly spelled) by only 77% of those playing. We were right below the difficultly spelled Massachew… Massatu… You know, the state to the north of us.
We were even outdone by Mississippi. Oh, the humanity.
¹ – They misspelled misspelled!
