Pennsylvania is an interesting one. It shares a border over Lake Erie

Read the directions! Pennsylvania and Ohio have water but neither a land nor a bridge (cf. Michigan) border with Canada.

But maybe read the quiz description: "There are 11 U.S. states that share a land or bridge border with Canada." Ohio and PA: no land borders, no bridges.

Well, I am all for building a bridge from Erie to Ontario and then building a wall to block it, right in the middle. Paid for by Canada and built by free Mexican labour. Who's with me?

In all seriousness, the distance across lake Erie at it's narrowest point is only about 25 miles of bridge, and there is a bridge from hong kong to macau that is 34 miles so it isn't even that unusual.

Yes, exactly where is Alaska? - If it is, in fact, geographically between Washington State and Canada, then why isn't it put there on any of the jet punk quizzes, but is delegated to the bottom of the map along with Hawaii.

It's to the West of Canada, separated from the rest of the USA. It is moved to the bottom on quizzes because if it was in its proper place it wouldn't fit in the map.
