The coastline one is phrased weirdly. I got what you were saying, but you could interpret it as them not being bottom of the coastline rankings.

The Scarface comment should read "It is about a Cuban refugee (Al Pacino) who arrives . . . " You might also point out that it is a cartoonish remake of a groundbreaking movie and the beginning of Pacino's long slow decline into hackdom.

I get where you're coming from, but Seminoles aren't actually originally from Florida. They're descended from the Creeks of Georgia, who moved into the vacuum left after all the native tribes (Calusa, Tequesta, etc.) were relocated to Cuba by the Spanish in 1763.

16/17. Missed the Disney World one. Some of the percentages right seem weird here. Like 92% for the space center, which I got right, but was very unsure of. Compare that to the population rank one with 40% right, I could see easily mixing up New York and Florida for 3rd and 4th, but 4th wasn't an option here.
