How Many Can You Name?
I am sure many of you have seen the episode of Friends, where Ross attempts to name all 50 states, before he can eat Thanksgiving Dinner. In the end, it takes him a very long time, but he does name them all. I think many of us (both Canadian and American) have attempted to do the same thing. I know that during some of the more boring classes of my university career, I zoned out and attempted to name all 50 states. I have only done it successfully one time. I soon looked for a new challenge, so I decided to see how many Presidents and Prime Ministers I could name (since naming all ten provinces and three territories just doesn’t have the same level of difficulty).
Anyways, I wanted to extend the challenge to TOP readers. How many American Presidents and Canadian Prime Ministers can you name and how long did it take? Post a comment, and let me know.
I was able to do all the American Presidents in just under 5 minutes, but I am embarrassed to report I failed with the Canadian Prime Ministers. I was defeated by Sir Mackenzie Bowell, whose name eluded me. I eventually gave up and put google to work trying to figure out which PM I neglected to remember.
If you need any help (after getting stuck, as I did with the Canadian leaders) these links can help. Good luck!
