Anyway, I have this unusual skill... I have memorized the capital city of all 50 states. My friends sometimes quiz me...
"Nevada?" "Carson City"
I rule US Geography.
I won the state capital bee in my 4th grade social studies class.
I love geography too. Usually when my friends have a question about it the ask me.
Not too long ago, at work, I asked one of my waitresses (college grad, worked part time there) if she could fill in the names of all the states if given a blank map. She said probably not. Then she finds the weather section in the paper which has the outlines of all the states but no names. I fill it out in less then 5 minutes. She then had to call like 3 friends to ask if they could do it. I didn't think it was anything impressive. I wonder how some people got their degrees sometimes.
