It’s a complete time waster. And yes, I passed. Rep. Sherrod Brown (D- Ohio), Hack Harvard Porn Related Posts Why Did New Jersey Lose Miss America?

He still contributes occasionally and handles all the technical and design work for the site. 10 Comments James Joyner February 11, 2004 I don’t have the attention span of a 3rd grader anymore–I got bored before I could get enough states to pass. 🙂 Zygote February 11, 2004 Failed horribly. I can hack it right up until you get to the eastern seaboard then I’m hosed. But I can recite all the states in alphabetical order..gotta be worth something. ken February 11, 2004 I guess Michigan’s Upper Peninsula finally broke off and formed the 51st state since it isn’t recognized as part of Michigan. And by the way, where are Alaska and Hawaii? They have been states since the 50’s? King of Fools February 11, 2004 Piece of cake. BTW – my wife grades 6th grade papers and they were taking a similar test (states plus capitals) and only a few were passing that test. Very sad. Kevin February 11, 2004 Good question Ken. Hawaii and Alaska must have been too hard for the flash guy to fit in… Aaron's Rantblog February 11, 2004 A better test would be to SKETCH the US map. Jackal February 11, 2004 Well, I just barely got them all in time. I knew where Delaware was supposed to be, but I kept dragging the damned thing into Maryland or New Jersey. Ditto with VT, NH, and RI. I guess I’m just a spaz. jen February 11, 2004 It was a challenge on the laptop, but I managed to get them all in time. You can’t beat a military chilhood for knowing where the states are – especially those drives across the country. Thanks, Dad! Simon February 13, 2004 What about a third grade spelling test. Let’s start with the word “geography” 🙂 Kevin February 13, 2004 Zempt has the worst spell checker ever…. Fixed.
