47/48. I don't remember having to use a mouse to try and drag-and-drop onto tiny state icons in the third grade. How the hell am I supposed to hit Delaware on the first try this early in the morning? |l

Well, I'm a Brit and I never went to 3rd grade, so that was pretty tough.
18/48 (some of them were pure guesses)

48/48. missed a few of those small new england states but corrected them.

48 out of 48, but I have no idea about the midwest or the south states.
Yeah, same here... 48/48 but had I not been able to try again on several it would have been much lower, probably 40/48 or so. :P

45/48. :-p If I only had a few more seconds! Haha. where anger is big and fueled by hydrogen

I didn't recognize Ohio or Illinois. I was just staring at them going, "I didn't know there were states there!!"

48/48, just a few years ago I actually knew all the capitals too. Plus in 6th grade I was the school Geography bee champ, so it woulda been sad if I had screwed up.
I was pretty disappointed when I got to high school and they stopped doing Geography bees. Hara
I see your geography bee champ and raise you a city geography bee champ, ha!
And I only got about 30 right

Well, my county and town are kinda small,(40,000 pop now, and I was in 6th grade 8-9 years ago) so after school we just took a written test to go to state. I was just proud that I beat all the 7th and 8th graders.
It was kinda funny, a friend my age and one a year younger then us held up 1st-3rd for the next 3 years. We kinda had a lock on it.
Btw thinking of old times reminds me of a cool little board game called Solar Quest, have any of you guys ever played it? Sorta like Monopoly except with the Solar System and your little rocket ship has fuel. Hara

my biggest problem was not matching the states, but accidentally picking up the wrong state from the list
for example I was going for utah, clicked utah, drug it to utah.. clicked it there.. and wrong! had texas on my mouse
that happened far too often

If you like doing these check out this site.
My scores were...
148/150 on US, should have been 149/150 cause @#%$ Delware is hard to click on, accidently hit Maryland cause their map sucks. Plus I hit New Hampshire on Vermont cause I mix them up sometimes.
36/39 on Canada, Nunavut was early on, and I didn't learn that in 5th grade so I couldn't remember, hit NW and Yukon so lost 2 points there. Accidently hit the little island off Quebec instead of PEI so lost 1 for that. Canada is easy, at least for the big providences, BASMOQ, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec. Learned that in 5th grade, still works.
39/42 on Central America. Missed 2 on Costa Rica, and hit Puerto Rico trying to get Jamaica.
39/39 on South America but its easy.
20/24 on Australia the Australian Capital Territory screwed me up on that one.
33/33 on the World quiz, that one everyone should know, or be smacked upside the head.
79/84 on Asia, one of the stan's screwed me up good.
95/111 on Europe. Stupid countries splitting up. Balkans screwed me up.
73/87 on Middle East. Stupid stan's and Eritrea got me good.
28/72 on the Caribbean. Never was my strong suit, but at one point I knew most of them.
79/147 on Africa. I waited for last on Africa cause I knew I was gonna get owned. Last time I studied it was 7th grade, but I did better then I thought I would.
