Cincinnati is the only city where it's only international airport is located in a state that Cincinnati isn't located in.

Los Angeles is actually located further east than Reno,NV.


Once you leave Seattle, you have to drop 3 degrees in latitude to reach the next biggest city, Minneapolis, over 1600 miles away.

The Nebraska National Forest is the largest human planted forest in the country. Planted in the once treeless Sandhills as an experiment.

Cinicinnati is the only major US city whose airport is not located in its own state but another. There is that stated more to your liking?

Green Mariner, since you can't pay me a tip, a rep point will suffice

What about Washington D.C. It's airport is in Virginia(Ronald Reagan). Unless you dont want to count D.C. as a state.

Well, D.C. isn't a state whether you want to count it or not. Dulles is in VA too.

Yup, totally different waterway routes from the sea: Mississippi River vs. St. Lawrence River.

Seriously though, I've seen unclaimed land such as that (probably that one) on maps before and always wondered why. Does anybody live there? If a crime where to happen there, would it fall under any jurisdiction? And why does nobody want the land? Is there some kind of international treaty keeping that land completely neutral from any nation? Just so strange!
Reminds me of "The Lost 40", a small patch of land in Northern MN that has the remnant of last old growth forest in the state. It was a mapmaker's error. The land was never platted or sold, though the lumber companies controlled all the land around it.
