name that...

Here is an interesting site for you to try. There are a number of fill-in-the-blank type games.

I started off with the periodic table of the elements... that didn't go so well.

The planets was hardly even a challenge.

The 50 states was a little harder - especially since I couldn't remember Alabama and Kentucky for a while.

Disney Villains did me in. I can't believe I couldn't remember the villains from 101 Dalmations and the Lion King.

I breezed through the American League on the MLB Teams page, but I got stuck on the last National League team, because really, who cares about the national league? I take some comfort knowing that the one I missed was the third-most frequently missed overall.

American Idol winners proved easier than I thought, though I still couldn't remember one of the runners up (runner ups?).

And finally, my AP US History teacher from high school would be ashamed that I could only name 24 of the US Presidents correctly. It is interesting to see which presidents were missed most often. I don't remember ever even hearing #21's name before...

Have fun.
