    How about the No. 2 religion in each state?

    In most cases the multiple choices make it easy. Only Co and WY are "identical" in shape with no wiggles in the border.

    gh's quiz is much harder, because I know the shapes in general, but the finer details are not so closely in memory. The hardest were the 'almost' rectangular states and if they had had ND SD and Kansas all together I would have had to think, but picking between four was too easy.

    Helpful hint: There are only two absolutely rectangular states. CO and WY. Since states are shown with no reference of scale, the clue here is WY has fewer, larger counties.

    I've always thought that an awesome map quiz would be to list all the states (by name, no picture) and you have to name all the other states that touch that state.

    It would be scored using my all-time favorite collegiate testing method (not!), wrongs from rights. In other words, you're better off staying mum unless you have a high degree of certainty. Unless you're trying to win, of course.

    40/50. Quite pleased with that - some of those squareish states sure do look alike!

    How many states can you identify from a map of outline?

    What I found more interesting is that Canada was in the top three from 1910 through 1960. Something tells me we shouldn't expect too many more Canadian immigrants for a few years . . .

    On the other hand, over the last decade, more Mexicans have left the U.S. than have come in.

    Very interesting! Is it fair to assume that the numbers they used are gross numbers of immigrants only, without subtracting migrants leaving the USA to a given country?
