Technically Oklahoma is also true for “borders Texas but not Oklahoma”. Because Oklahoma doesn’t really border itself, right? Kind of weird to think about.

By that logic, it wouldn't work because "not Oklahoma" could also refer to just not being Oklahoma.

Surprised the state where people can't pump their own gas is so low. But maybe it's because I live there and hate it.

It's not. Maybe that's why they have the day off - to plant some trees and give a little character to all those rolling plains.

I'm French, I know there is no H but I thought Arbor Day had to do something with pilgrims so I tried every New England state. I did get Nebraska eventually by randomly trying other states...

I thought of auto racing for the quarter million fans question and tried Alabama (Talladega) and Florida (Daytona), then started thinking of states like Massachusetts and New York with large marathons. Didn't get the right answer :(

As of 2024, there's a new musical on Broadway called "Illinoise" based on the Sufjan Stevens album. Not sure if that technically counts, just FYI.

US Open tennis gets more than 250,000 spectators in NY. Not in a single day, but over the annual event.

Boston, Chicago and NYC marathons all get more than 250k spectators annually.
