I got 49, but it's my own fault - I was clicking through too quickly and missed Texas. :-\

Here's a fun trivia question: What are the four state capitals not served by an interstate highway?

44.  Also feel like I've failed.  It's been too long since I... cared about geography?
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!

I googled it so I won't answer but they said there were 5, not 4.

Ooh, right you are. I looked it up on an atlas during a long road trip several years ago, and I guess we either missed one then, or I've forgotten since.

49, guess I really have been successful in wiping New Jersey completely from my mind.

31/50.

For me that's success, I never learned them in school.  I'm pretty sure it's because we moved from NY to NJ between 7th and 8th grade.  The NJ school district taught them in 7th grade (that's when my brother learned them), I assume the NY school district taught them in 8th grade.

At least you learned enough to move from NJ/ NY to the PNW.  Oops- I mean, why would you move to a place where it rains constantly?

I got 38, which isn't bad given that I'm British (although I have had heavy exposure to the US).

On the interstates, I'm pretty sure that Carson City isn't on one.
