    12/14. Some were good guesses. But with most corresponding to a prominent tourist attraction, it was fairly easy. It also helps to have lived in two of the states.

    5/14... Lovely, ain't it? But then again I don't live in the US and when I did I didn't explore much anyways and it was a looong time ago (proportionally to my age)

    10/14, not bad, IMHO!!!
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
