Yeah he's obviously on something and he was my first guess. Though when that didn't work I thought about it for a second and got the right answer. But Cookie is now a recovering addict, right? He talks about his problem with addiction in the past but now he eats broccoli and stuff. Did he fall off the wagon?

I tried many US states on the east coast until I remembered that the Aleutian Islands belong to Alaska... =)

Feb 12, 2015
I still think it should be Maine the right answer, as the International Date Line is bent to accommodate Alaska and the Aleutian Islands.

International date line, I presume.

Feb 13, 2015
The International Date Line is actually crooked to keep Alaska in one time zone. I assume the question uses longitude as a measure of how far east or west something is (as is the official standard). The far tip of Alaska goed beyond 180 degrees longitude to the west (Greenwich is 0 degrees), making it part of the "eastern half" of the world.

I think it should be phrased 'Geographically East' not technically.

I believe technically Alaska stretches across the International Date Line, putting it technically "east".

It's nothing to do with the international date line - it's the line of longitude at 180 degrees.
