i guess you didn't read #5 either, gobo. a national park, not a state.

alix, iraq and afghanistan are going to be combined into the 51st state, called jiffylube-istan.



i'm usually very good with geography, but i missed #'s 1, 3 and 5.

Fine, all but the lake stuff had nothing to do with Canada. That's all I learned in geography.
That's all they teach you....
The lakes, the provinces, the territories, the capitals, and the layers of soil in the earth.... that's about it.
