Yeah.. I wouldn't say these are really clues... I got 1/24. And I'm a pretty smart cookie. This was too hard.

If you got 1/24 on these and claim to know any facts about the United States, you should probably stop claiming that. If you're not from the U.S., then I can see why these would be difficult.

This was one of the best quizzes I have yet seen here. Relevant and yet still esoteric enough. Very similar to what I would expect to see on jeopardy.

Esoteric means obscure or highly specialized. Is that what you meant? Like how many tons of potatoes does Idaho produce each year? That is esoteric.

You got me with two peninsulas. I was mentally covering every coastal state and couldn't figure out what I was missing.

Same here. It was driving me crazy. I was sure there was an error until I finally hit on the right answer.

Good quiz. Had to try a few states for Teddy Roosevelt to get the correct one.

Very easy, 100%. It's pretty easy to guess the ones you don't know, too.

Not that the answer for Teddy is incorrect but he recruited the Rough Riders at the Menger Hotel across from the Alamo. That is about as cowboy as it gets.

Woonsocket is a city, but Narragansett is a town.

I'm always surprised by how few people know the Air Force Academy is in Colorado. Oh well, as a Coloradan I guess my POV is skewed.
