Jun 16, 2014
It is possible. I had 1:22 remaining too the 2nd time (with new states). 1st time, I couldn't get North Carolina because they put both r's right in front of the n's and I kept thinking it was two m's
+1

Jul 21, 2014
It's definitely possible. I got them all done with 1:17 left, on my first try
+1
level 64
May 12, 2016
Definitely doable, since I just finished this with 1:32 left. Surely I had some easy ones (like Texas and Oklahoma) and I'm a fairly fast typer. I look at a scramble and when I start writing it I already look at the next one so I've solved the next one when I'm done typing the previous one.
+1
level 60
May 12, 2016
^ I do that too; definitely the best way to do it. I finished with 1:10 left, and would've had it sooner except my brain farted when I saw the letters to Nevada and thought, "Gee...how do you spell Nevada? Definitely "Neveda". Oh, yeah. It's not like the letters are right there in front of me saying otherwise." Seriously...

Just wondering, is there a reason that Texas wasn't scrambled?
+1
level 41
Dec 6, 2013
OK OK, it really just scrambles the state names in a random spelling every time. Once in a while you will get the name spelled correctly, especially on states with shorter names.

It happened to me too! The odds of randomly mixing the letters A, E, S, T and X and coming up with "texas" are 1 in 120.
+1
level 53
May 12, 2017
The chances of it happening twice are one in 14,400, so what are the odds? Pretty good, actually, since so many people have taken this quiz - this implies that one in three people will comment if they get 'TEXAS' scrambled correctly.

If I understood right, it "scrambled" Ohio by actually giving the correct spelling. Since it's only four letters long the chances of that happening are higher than with any other state.
+1

Dec 16, 2014
I wouldn't say any other state. You'd be forgiven for forgetting about Iowa, but don't snub my bro Utah.

level 11
Dec 30, 2014
Ohio has two of the same letters in it. Utah and Iowa have four different letters. Therefore, Ohio would have the highest chance of scrambling into its correct spelling.
+2
level 75
Dec 16, 2015
Asbolutely, the odds are 1 in 12 for Ohio and 1 in 24 for Iowa and Utah.

The worst odds go to New Hampshire, with only one repeated letter, meaning that you've only a two in 285,311,670,611 chance of getting it scrambled perfectly.

I was unable to unscramble "eabsakm" into "Nebraska". Please fix typo.

Dec 9, 2013
There was no typo. The "m" was probably an "r" and an "n" right next to each other, which made the letter look like an "m".
+1
level 14
Dec 18, 2013
I got caught up on one that looked like "eoogm." I was thinking, what the hell? Mooge? Emogo? Turns out that it was actually "eoogrn," but that distinction was impossible to see on my screen.
