I saved 212,100,000 people. Haha without me USA would only have about 100 million people. I saved about 2/3 of the population in United States. I just made history!

A lot to be honest, but mostly because it's harder without the map. I just did 42 seconds with a map, and can be pushed under 40, but on this quiz yeah it took me a lot of attempts :)

Meh. On this one I know I won't get them all, so I just type whatever pops in my mind. It could have included Wyoming if I remembered its existence more than 12 seconds a year...

The shorter the name of your state, the more likely I'll save you. I'm afraid I've got bad news for the good people of Boston.

Am I the only American born person on here that knows more about European and Asian history than American states' history? Lol! I am bombing on the state quizzes yet i get 100 or 95 on every European history or general history quiz and I was not a(n) history major. I also get 100 percent on vocab. general, geography etc. The only quizzes I do not do well on are American history and sports. New Yorkers are more tied to Europe than the States lol! I love Quizmaster's comment on the aliens killing everyone in Dc-well I hope the he meant Capital Hill.:) I saved 3 percent-the only intelligent life left.
