Thank you, They Might Be Giants, for increasing my score on this. "In 1842, the Democrats were split; the three nominees for the Presidential candidate were Martin Van Buren, a former President and an abolitionist, James Buchanan, a moderate, Lewis Cass, a general and expansionist. From Nashville came a dark horse riding up... he was James K. Polk, Napoleon of the stump."

I had to memorize all the presidents in order in 8th grade and I could still name the first 25 off the top of my head. It's been several years, so I'm quite proud of myself

Finished with 6 seconds to spare my first time through, but in spite of being both a fast typist and a bit of an amateur presidential historian, I can't seem to get it done in fewer than 35 seconds. I have been right on the cusp of getting it done with more than 25 to spare and I feel it is possible to do it, but so far I am stuck with 25 left in spite of many attempts. Hopefully this next time is the one!

Got all of them with 1 second left on my 8th try. I was thinking there's no way I can do this with another president added next year, but it's probably gonna be another clinton ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You should fix the typo in the answers column which says Grover Cleveland served from "1885-1889, 1893-189". Unless that is just how it is displayed, it should be 1893-1897, like it is in the quiz.

i learned them in 7th grade and never forgot them. Of course I've had to keep adding to the list since then. Still it took me a few tries before I could type fast enough to get 100%. Plus, I had to remember not to do the repeats because that would slow me down.
