    We had a song: Newfoundland and PEI; Nova Scotia and New Brunswick; Quebec, Ontario, and then you'll see, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, BC.

    Did I get that correct?

    Chris, just stop. You suck at this. :tongue:
    Hahahahaha!  When i pulled up that site I thought it was part of Winnipeg!

    This is why I should study Northern Geography...
    had this conversation with my kids the other day, how it's so weird to me how focused my geography class was on knowing all 50 states and capital cities, and half of the US can't point to canada on a map. I think knowing the states is useful, but the capitals? not necessary. i would have rathered spend time on global geography, which I don't recall spending any time on beyond the continents. 
    I remember doing US geography and some world geography but not a lot of Canada?

    I don't remember the 7 seas or where they are but I have traveled to some remote parts of the world Tetu Lake being one of them and can't remember everything about the areas...

    If you know all 50 state capitals, I'd guess you are ahead of 85% of Americans. Hell, if you know all 50 states, I'd guess you're ahead of half.

    All because of Florida's 49th ranked (at the time) public school system.

    I don't recall what my test mark was, but on the capitals it wasn't great. the states I could probably recall about 80%. But now? My knowledge retention, especially on geographical placement, is off the charts horrible.

    From everything I've heard and read, Seattle doesn't sound like the city I know and love... It really does seem like a lot changed for the worse since I was last there, pre-COVID. And that really sucks.
    Not just Seattle, this Great RE-SET is happening in most rotten brain infested Big shitties throughout America.  And the common theme on who controls those shitties like NYC, LA, CHI, one might ask?? Well ya’know…One cannot talk about that, especially on here…Wake me up when the Woke decides to sleep 
    Linda, you're welcome to talk about anything you want on here - you seem to be the intolerant one of others who would make good faith arguments, because you spew nonsense. This nonsense, of course, comes in between your insults that wouldn't seem out of place in a third grade class, and makes it nearly impossible to think of you as a credible source, let alone an opinion worth learning from.


    Well thank you for giving me permission to express my thoughts on here….Obviously I struck a nerve due to the personal insults towards me…Par for the course around here when one does not drink the coolaide.  Post all the laughable manipulated stats you want, I form my opinions from seeing things w/ my own eyes from my travels to all the Shitties mentioned.  So sad what has happened, but not surprised one bit…Never been happier to be a 1%-er.  
    You seem to be implying that you needed permission from this supposedly woke crowd. I'd hate for you to feel your voice doesn't matter.

    Criticizing your posts isn't the same as insulting you, but if your posts are consistently immature insults and/or misinformation, your credibility suffers (again - different from an insult). At that point, your "the Kool-Aid drinkers won't even see my point of view" premise may become true - but it'll be your fault.
    I love how you are always so calm and reasonable with these folks.

    Yes! However, Newfoundland is now called Newfoundland and Labrador. It changed in 2001. Gotta stay current!

    I refuse to recognize Labrador.

    Labrador sounds like my kind of place.  Remote, barely accessible by road, and not many people.   I really need to check it out one day :)

    Dang it! The Animaniacs need to come up with a new version of their countries song as well. I know that ain't right anymore.
