More of a typing test than knowledge test. Gotta get faster. And not type with dyslexia.

Good quiz

Not for me. I'm Australian, and I don't know many US capitals. I got 10, though, which I bet is at least 2 more than the number of Australian capitals anyone in the US knows.

You're probably right. Without googling...Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, and Brisbane? Can't tell you what they are all the capitals of though, I won't lie. (Or if they are even all capitals...ay).

Perth, Western Australia; Darwin, North Territory; Brisbane, Queensland; Sydney, New South Wales; Canberra, Capital Territory; Adelaide, Southern Australia; Hobart, Tasmania; and Melbourne, Victoria. Not hard if you take the 5 minutes to memorize them.

As an American I know a decent amount of Australian cities, however I don’t exactly know which cities are capitals are which aren’t.

Unless you don't remember where some of these are. I was making pretty good time up until Jefferson City and then things fell apart...

That's the exact spot where I got thrown off also. I was doing great until Jefferson City... it must be quite a forgettable capital to most people.

Those of us who live in my area of Missouri have a saying regarding Jeff City. "You can't get to Jeff from here. You have to go somewhere else to begin the journey."

I'm an average typist, average to quite good, and it took me a long time to be able to finish in the time. If it's 'easy', why did only 10% get all 50?

100% - For some reason, I am much better identifying the states

when given the capitols, than I am naming the capitals when given

the states. Weird, huh?

Not really, thinking about it - you only have 50 states to choose from (OK, you only have 50 capitals, but you have to know which cities are capitals, and many are less well known than the states)

I wouldn’t say ironic. U.S. state capitals were often deliberately chosen to be somewhere not the largest city to prevent that city from getting all of the political power.

Fun quiz. I think it needs about 30 more seconds for those of us who aren't the greatest of typers. Unless this is meant to be more of a typing contest.
