Re: US geography as done by the Brits
No bloody wonder nobody can place them all. Way too many states to begin with. So many in fact, that you've even managed to confuse yourselves in the process.
Look at Oz. A landmass only slightly smaller than mainland USA (not including Alaska), yet we only have 6 states and 2 territories. Even our imbeciles can fill out one of our maps. :-)
