I'm not sure that Great Britain's flag ever flew over Texas, but I know for a fact that the Mexican flag did.

In the Village People, I think one was often dressed as an airman, and another sometimes as a sailor. (After checking another was dressed as 'leatherman' - go figure). Maybe insert 'predominately' or 'usually'.

I don't know if Enterprise should count as a shuttle. It was only a test article and was never designed for going into orbit like the other five.

aaaah, didn't really do well on this one. Missed out on a few obvious ones (Honolulu and Juneau for example, simply forgot about the non-contiguous states), but some categories just weren't ones that I know anything about (Space shuttles or Friends for example).

WTH is "Mountain Time"?! I swear I've never heard of that in my entire life...

After looking it up I'm surprised I've never heard of it actually, and I have a new question: WTH is going on with the time zones in Arizona?!

AZ doesn't do daylight savings time. So it's Mountain part of the year and Pacific the rest.

You don't hear much about mountain time because there aren't really any major cities in that time zone. Just Denver and sometimes Phoenix. You could maybe include Salt Lake City, I guess. The other three mainland time zones each have a bunch of cities.

Agree. Can’t find any sources referring to it as a country. Found several taking the position it never was.

Wondered the same. If it was, then the war between USA and CSA could not be called "civil war", technically.

I think it would take a very creative imagination to see Olympia as being on the sea. There is a lake nearby.

Are you referring to the Puget Sound as a lake?

Presumably he's referring to Capitol Lake, which is what Olympia is "on" (versus just bordering). Budd Inlet is a brackish water estuary (about half seawater) that's pretty far removed from the open ocean.

It's always a bit of a problem to apply a technical definition to a colloquial term like "the sea". I think most people think of "the sea" in the same way that I see dictionaries define it: the *salt water* body that covers most of the earth. And to be "on the sea" means to have a presence on the shoreline of that body, not on an enclosed half-freshwater estuary that would gradually grade into the Deschutes river if not for a dam. Is Antioch, California "on the sea" because saltwater reaches that far up Suisun Bay and the Delta? Almost everyone would describe San Francisco as "on the sea"; almost no one would describe Mountain View as "on the sea", let alone (say) Antioch.

If you clarify where *you* draw the line for purposes of the question, it might be clearer.

Is Budd Inlet "the sea?" I think that one is a stretch. Otherwise, great quiz!

It's actually even better than that- our Capitol building is the only one on a waterfront of any kind. Which lets you take great pictures of the dome reflected in the water, which can't be done for any other.

Although the Coast Guard is one of the armed services, it is not a branch of the US Military. It is currently under the Dept of Homeland Security. Prior to that, it was under the Treasury. Fun facts! As a member of the US Military I love picking on my little Coastie brethren. :)
