i am getting the same issue the terminal is asking me for my first name and will not let me enter it however after about 15 seconds all of the other print statements will just print to screen and it just fails me. i am sure i got it right as i have got the desired result when i copied the code into rubymine
print "What’s your first name? "
first_name = gets.chomp
print "What’s your last name? "
last_name = gets.chomp
print "What’s your city? "
city = gets.chomp
print "What’s your state (use abreviation)? "
state = gets.chomp
