But first, a quiz that I may have posted before. Answers below.
A STATELY QUIZ
Of the 50 states in the union, which is the most northerly, the most southerly, the most easterly, and the most westerly?
Northerly - If you said Maine, go back and read the question again. It says, “Of the 50 states in the union...”
If you said Alaska, you are correct.
Southerly - If you said Florida, try again. If you said Hawaii, you are correct.
Westerly - No, not Hawaii. If you said Alaska, you are correct.
Easterly - If you said anything in the lower 48, you are not correct. If you said Alaska, you are correct.
Okay, time to look at a map that shows the International Date Line. You will note that the Aleutian Islands, which is part of Alaska, crosses the International Date Line. Go ahead. Argue with geography.
