• For example, apparently there’s not even one state in this entire country named Hamilton. How is there not a single state named Hamilton? That truly seems impossible.
  • I admittedly overestimated the number of Carolinas by something like seven.
  • I was counting on at least eleven different states that turned out to be beer or liquor brands.
  • Whatever Pearl Harbor is, it isn’t a state.
  • I’ve been informed Canada is actually its own independent country. I think I actually knew that.
  • And Toronto is just a city inside Canada. I was understandably confused by the fact they have a team in the National Basketball Association.
  • There is no state named after Beyonce. Not even a Beyoncelvania or Beyoncechusetts. In 2016. Accuse me of sour grapes, but frankly I don’t want to be president of this country any more anyway.
  • There’s no state of Chipotle either. What I thought was definitely a state down around Arizona is actually a massive chain burrito restaurant. Apparently they have locations everywhere, and everyone knows this. It’s important to remember that I am limited in my dining options by a very sensitive palate and that a plain baked potato with a side of mini marshmallows is about all the spice I can handle.
  • Delta is an airline, even though people talk about it with the same disgust they use to talk about Florida.
  • My belief that there existed both a sequel state and reboot state in the New York franchise was way off.
  • Alabama is a state, but Auburn is not. I am still unclear on what Auburn is.
  • Idris and Elba are not two separate American states, but rather one non-American actor.
  • Dorne is the fictional place where all the freaky sex assassins live on Game of Thrones. I knew it sounded familiar though.
  • Turns out this Melania that Donald Trump keeps praising is a person he married.
  • Umaga was a professional wrestler.
  • Golden State is just a nickname for California, a real state I was already counting.
  • Rhode Island may actually be a real state. I have yet to confirm.
