Do You Know Your State Capitols?

  5. Newfoundland (and Labrador)

  8. Prince Edward Island
  9. Quebec
  10. Saskatchewan
  11. Northwest Territories
  12. Nunavut
  13. Yukon Territory
  14. Canada

Since no one else came clean, I got 16/20 U.S. capitals, and the only Canadian one I thought I didn’t know was New Brunswick.

I think when I was in school there were only 11, though. Either way, I don’t consider it worth the brain cells to remember because like the periodic table of elements, it only takes 5 seconds to look it up.

In my pea brain, there is a finite amount of space.
