[ale] [OT] Please Help me with my homework



I've driven to all but 4 states so it was fairly easy for me.  If only I
hadn't let my attention lapse on the very last one.   It probably would
have been harder to identify the square states if one had to do it by
shape rather than position on the map (other than the non-contiguous
ones).  I take annual road trips to different destinations and am
running out of states.   Interestingly last November I set my car's
fancy in-dash GPS to "San Diego" and it took me to San Diego ... County!
It was interesting to be up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere
and have my car tell me:  "You have reached your destination."  I begged
to differ.   Turns out it had an entry for San Diego County and one for
the city and I hadn't realized it gave me two options when I told it San
Diego.  

 

I'm still trying to work out how to drive to Hawaii at some point...

Hmm. Botched up Utah, which I should basically know. Scored 148.

I'll whine and moan that that really isn't much of a challenge. Can you
remember the capital cities? (Plus DC of course). Can you remember any
of the Canadian provinces/teritories and their capitals? How about
Mexican states & cities? (I fail miserably at that point).
