Was anyone else confused by the coastline question? I think that it currently sounds like it’s asking if Florida has a longer coastline than any single state. Maybe it would be better worded as “than every other state.”

The coastline one is phrased weirdly. I got what you were saying, but you could interpret it as them not being bottom of the coastline rankings.

The Scarface comment should read "It is about a Cuban refugee (Al Pacino) who arrives . . . " You might also point out that it is a cartoonish remake of a groundbreaking movie and the beginning of Pacino's long slow decline into hackdom.

I get where you're coming from, but Seminoles aren't actually originally from Florida. They're descended from the Creeks of Georgia, who moved into the vacuum left after all the native tribes (Calusa, Tequesta, etc.) were relocated to Cuba by the Spanish in 1763.
