OK I've got a couple for you:
1) what is the highest capital city in the United States?
2) what is the oldest occupied city in the United States?

FIrst one is quite easy, since the U.S. only has one capital, it must be Washington D.C. ;)
Second, I would go for Sky City

Georgia is the home of many biggest companies but if we talk about the companies according to sales, profit and asset, then JPMorgan Chase which is the parent of Chase bank, is the biggest company in the world. There  assets were $2,117.6 billion few years ago.

Little quiz for you. What is the only state in the US that is 1 syllable?

That one took me all of a second or so.

This one should take longer and although I know of several examples, I don't know the total.

How many states (not counting any coastal states) have portions that are completely separated (by water, totally surrounded by other states or a combination of both) from the main body?  For this, I'll also exclude islands in the Great Lakes.


This question probably still isn't worded right, so if no one comes up with any other than the most obvious, I'll provide examples.

Can't think of any others off the top of my head, but being from Kentucky, I know that Fulton County, KY in the far western part of the state has a portion that is separated by the Mississippi River.  You have to go south into Tennessee to get there.
