As an Arizonan, I'm disappointed in the 25% of you that forgot about us D:

Though I admit I had to do a mental inventory of states before remembering

I'm surprised a large percentage thought the Miami Beach-Havana one was true. First of all, Bahamas is closer to Miami Beach and second, the closest point to Cuba is in Key West and even from there you can't see Cuba from 90 miles away.
