    I learned that I'm too rusty at Blazblue and need to brush Nu-13 combos again.

    Western states? Got them all correct. I must not be a fan of the eastern and southern part of our country. XD
    I always found this to be a completely useless skill. It's nice to have a common sense idea of your country, but it's impractical to have to have every state memorized when maps are so damn readily available :I
    Yeah? well, y'know...that's just like, your opinion, man.

    Like Chess? Play with me! Just drop me a PM whenever you're down. I have a chess.com account, and I can also set up a game with you on lichess (no subscription process or login required) whenever you like.

    People can't identify all the states on a map? o_o

    I can name all fifty states without being prompted by a map at all...

    Why would you even be able to do that if you're not a geographer or something? That's fucked up.

    Seriously, this. I could do this in elementary school.

    It's called basic knowledge of the country one lives in, how is that "fucked up"?

    You let us know when reciting the 50 states feeds you, lands you a job, or saves your life

    I think most people know the states but like, don't exactly know where all of them are with 100% certainty.
