Looks like New York state still has the most, but California seems destined to pass it soon. Changed the question to "has more than Florida" which should hopefully remain true indefinitely.

A stat that is still changing like that is probably not the best question. Maybe something like, "The first COVID 19 cases reported in the US were in New York." (false) The disease had a huge impact on the state, and I think it is good to include a question about it, but maybe something that is not subject to change.

10/15 are false. Now for some math. If we randomly choose true or false, there is about a 15% chance of there being 10 or more false answers. So I'd say this is nothing remarkable.

I was tossing in a double meaning, riffing on a stereotypical pedantic comment. I often forget how serious Jetpunk is. Dimby gets it.
