    7/20 - not bad for a cow who has never been to America before...

    Ok, pretty bad, but I am good at naming the capitol cities of countries, though!

    A capitol is a building.

    Do you know your state buildings? :confused:

    You Got 19 State Capitols Correct

    You're either a geography buff... or you have an excellent memory.

    I loved those little rhymes we had to learn in 4th grade... they were awesome.

    19 out of 20-of course they didn't say which one I got wrong, and I know two were nothing more than a wild guess.

    That's what I was going to point out. It's amazing how many people don't know or remember the distinction, and how many times I've seen the wrong word used when referring to the city and not the building.

    Now, as far as the test goes..


    You Really Know Your State Capitols

    You Got 20 State Capitols Correct

    You're either a geography buff... or you have an excellent memory.


    ..It's both actually.:rolleyes::biggrin1: I also can recite the names of all 50 states and their capitals alphabetically by memory.:tongue:
