Geography of the USA

How good is your knowledge?
http://jimspages.com:80/States.htm

About the US, how is this for Irony:
The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.
Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves

Apart from Texas and Alaska from when I used to do business there (oil/gas etc) I would get 0% right.

Re: Geography of the USA

Uhmm, 74% but it got easier after the first half-dozen or so, first couple were wildly wrong. Never thought about it before but aren't some of the states small!!
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
