30 seconds at last!

It's hard to remember at speed that Arizona isn't AR (it's the next one), and as a typist the most challenging area is the News because they are all on the same hand, instead of alternating hands which is faster.

I know them all, but I had to stop the timer to finish it, because I kept accidentally looking ahead and typing those abbreviations.

great quiz idea but there is absolutely not enough time on this. i get that you don't want to give people a ton of time to just guess every letter in the state name but you also need to give them time to type at a reasonable pace >.

The timing is set just right! You can't think during this one, people. You either gotta be a mail sorter or a ham radio operator or something. These abbreviations have to be synonymous with the state name in your head. :)

I just realized that for 14 of the U.S. states, their two letter abbreviation was just the states' first and last letter put together. And 25 states when you count states with two words, like South Carolina, when the first letter of each word forms the abbreviation.

Unfortunately this is a good quiz spoilt by the irrational thinking that a fast typist must be somehow superior in brain power than a slower manipulator of the keyboard. As the individual's time is always given, surely anyone keeping some sort of typing record can keep their own times without rushing to finish the quiz and then boasting about useless times to complete the quiz. I have learnt a great deal about the US just from jetpunk quizzes, if all the quizzes were as poorly timed as this I would have left jetpunk long ago.

I don't really understand the fuss about the clock. It sure takes a bit of practice - both for fingers and brain to memorize them, especially if you are not from the US. But it is definitely possible, even for foreigners like me - 4th try and few seconds left on the clock. Thanks for the points! :)
