I hate this quiz because I really know a great deal about the United States... but not stuff you actually have to live there to know (eg see the tv shows, drive hundreds of miles in a remote states). Also, biology knows no national boundaries, so I'm not sure you can guarantee that moss question is general knowledge "about the United States".

There's an even more amusing one in Corydon, IN called - and I kid you not, "Butt Drugs". Google it. They have a commercial that is hysterical. It's been on the "Ellen Show".

I know TV is important to the US, but really, these quizzes have too much to do with TV and not enough history or ecology or, you know,other forms of culture.
