The answer to yesterday's question was C. Bf 109, congratulations Henry921! The bonus question answers are kinda tricky. The MIG-29(like most Russian war planes) was never given a official name. NATO did designate it as the Fulcrum, I would have accepted that as an answer. The P-51 was named the Mustang. The Messerschmitt Bf 109 was also never given an official name. Finally the F-15 is named the Eagle(or some variant with Eagle in it).

Today's trivia question.

How many actual States are in the United States of America?

A. 50

B. 52

C. 46

D. 48

Easy: A. 50. I'm not gonna name them all plus their capitals mind you (who can actually?). Some people say either 48 or 52, because of Alaska and Hawaii. Either they're not counted at all or counted double :lol:

In the continental US? 48. Actual states with actual State powers? (IE, seats in Congress) 50. In total, counting states that don't actually have all the powers of a state? 52, if memory serves.

It's one of the original 13 colonies and it's in New England.

Sheesh, splitting hairs over States vs. Commonwealths. :lol: If we're going that route, KY (yummy chicken), PA, MA and VA are Commonwealths. WA however, is not.

The answer to this question was E. Arthur C Clarke picked this university as Hal's birthplace because of the supercomputer already developed there (Illiac, etc).
