    Problem spelling some of those words?
    Easy!

    Change "giraffe" to-----Long Necks!
    Change "liar" to--------Any Politician!
    Change "tomorrow" to----Well, golly, tomorrow's Thursday!!

    Interesting, though, that Wisconsinites can't even spell their own state's name!!
    Three states have problems with pneumonia!
    Alaskans can't spell---schedule??
    Heh.
    Maybe because they have 24 hours of darkness or sunshine!!

    Here's an interesting one. Google looked at searches for "how to spell__________" and compiled the number of searches in each state for each word. The result is this map, which is mis-labeled "America's Most Misspelled Words". Below that heading is the more accurate "Top searched 'how to spell' by state":

    I should add that when I'm not sure how to spell a word, I just type (in Google) what I think is the correct spelling. If I'm wrong, the correct spelling will be obvious. Google's "top searched" compilation would have missed me entirely.

    How do you even determine something like that?

    When I was drafted by the CG as RB for the 4th Army football team (on basis of my track credentials.. I never played football), our quarterback allegedly played QB for Univ of VT.
    I never got to see him perform.. there was this little "police action" going on in Korea...

    And the People's Democratic Republic of Vermont brings up the rear.

    I am not surprised by LA, GA, FL but why MD, DC, so high?

    Loved the Pangea picture, so fascinating to think about this giant of a continent. And the population density statistics always makes me nervous.

    First time on this thread!
    I was curious as to where Guadeloupe is---after seeing the results of the track meet there.
    But I extended my search beyond there to the entire Caribbean!

    And was shocked to see Trinidad & Tobago so close to South America---even appearing to be attached to it!!

    Also fascinated seeing all the other little nation/islands where famous track stars come from!
    Barbados, St Kitts, British Virgin Islands & all the rest.

    I was familiar with Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and the Bahamas!
    But there're so many of these places from whence came so many elite athletes!!

    It's an area of the world that Americans should become more familiar with!
