Would be nice with a little more time, I was halfway through with 30 secs left and had to rush through the last and missed some obvious ones. Also, I think that I'm not the only one since the two least guessed are the two last questions. They are not the hardest ones.

Tried Rhode Island for the 40% question - given that the Providence metro area is about 152% of the population of the state, but I guess you're going for city proper - a metric, which personally, I've never liked as its kinda artificial.

Even though he might not have technically "lived" in Michigan, Hemingway certainly spent enough extended time there to make it a correct answer. Especially since the house on Walloon Lake is on the register of historic places as the Hemingway Cottage.

Does Colorado really border seven other states? I assume you're counting Arizona as the seventh. They meet at Four Corners, but in my mind that doesn't constitute a border.
