The question was removed because no one understood it. The question was "what are the four seasons in Indiana" and the answer was something along the lines of "winter, more winter, winter, and construction." No one knew the question, so I'm assuming that's why it was removed

I've never thought that being a Hoosier was ever really that special, but 100 percenting this quiz without at all trying is pretty nice. Now I just have to struggle through the other 49 state quizzes lol

For me, it had way too much pop culturey stuff that I’ve never heard of or never would’ve guessed. I like the ones with more history & geography.

I gotta read more carefully. I was going back through all the Presidents to find the ones born in Indiana and made it all the way back to the founding fathers before I realized it was asking for Vice Presidents. It did get me Garfield ahead of time, though.
