I agree. I found it weird to not see a yellow box, especially how some answers gave me 1 other.

Man, I might've got a respectable score if that yellow box hadn't been there.

I think this quiz needs yellow box, also both South Carolina and West Virginia's biggest cities are Charleston.

Surprised so many people got the gas pumping ban. That seems like a pretty obscure piece of information unless you live there. Unless others are just doing what I did and guessing it once the others are done.

No need to live there. All you need to do is pass through one of those states and need gas. It's quite an unpleasant surprise to be told that you can't do it yourself. It's not like the nice service station experience of old.

To be honest. All I did was think "where would I never want to live, ever?" and I typed in Oregon. Only a coincidence that it was the correct answer.

I find that kinda funny cuz I think most people I know would like living in Oregon but would hate living in New Jersey. The only reason I personally wouldn't want to move to Oregon is because of the forest fires and extreme heat. Otherwise, I've heard it's rather beautiful out there. Jersey on the other hand is an entirely different story...

There are some very beautiful parts of New Jersey, but the most famous parts are in the shadows of New York and Philadelphia, so they're overcrowded. But the middle of the state is quite beautiful.

Yeah that's true. To a certain extent, I just like making fun of New Jersey :) but I will grant there are a few nice parts. Still, there are many other places in the US I'd much rather live.

Both states have LOTS of traffic from people traveling up and down their respective coasts.

Missed Venus Fly Traps, Elvis, and banning pumping. I thought of Oregon for it right as time ran out because my friend is going to Oregon soon to pump gas at a gas station so I was thinking it would make sense

Seeing no one commenting on Arkansas ending in a silent S (while Kansas does not), I guess it's a well known story even outside of the USA. I didn't know it however, so I'm quite surprised. Not so surprised we French people are behind this though. When it comes to silent letters...

In French all the 26 letters can be silent. In English all the 26 letters can be pronounced like the other 25.

Iā€™m pretty sure it is now legal to pump your own gas in Oregon.

Only in rural areas under certain circumstances, not generally.
