Most of Idaho is mountanous, but there are some flat areas, especially in the southwest of the state. Most of the farms are along the Snake River near the major cities, including Boise, Twin Falls, Burley, and Idaho Falls.

Sorry, but I spent four years of my life in Amsterdam, Holland, having to eat potatoes in one form or another EVERY SINGLE DAY.

I will be an extremely happy camper if I NEVER SEE ANOTHER POTATO AS LONG AS I LIVE.

I spent four years of my life living in The Hague, Holland, and ate pretty much whatever I wanted. You know, what with it being an advanced country with a wide range of restaurants, supermarkets and other sources of a diverse selection of foodstuffs.

I'm trying to imagine what circumstances can have forced you to eat potatoes every day. Were you in prison?

Being older helped me get Ipanema from the song, "Girl From Ipanema" - "Tall and tan and young and lovely, the girl from Ipanema goes walking, and when she passes, each one she passes says, 'Ahhhh'." Bossa nova from the '60s was great.

"Tall and tan and young and lovely,

The girl from Ipanema goes walking and...."

I think the 60's bossa nova song made it famous for quiz-takers of a certain age.

I won’t lie. I think Risk is an awful game. 10% strategy and 90% luck. It takes so dang long to finish too.

So is Jetpunk going to pretend Palestine doesn't count as a country AND claim Israel is a majority jewish country?

So Palestinians don't exist at all? SMH.

Iwo Jima is certainly the best known name for the island, but since the question is phrased in the present tense, maybe Iwo To should at least be an acceptable answer.
