I always forget that Oklahoma borders Colorado and New Mexico, and I live in Oklahoma! Lol.

Slightly off topic, but here is a bar bet you might win.

A small piece of Ontario (the province) lies to the south of the northern border of California.

It does so.

Pennsylvania and Ontario, Canada (the state/province lines continue until they meet in Lake Erie).

I don't like the inclusion of maritime borders. Just seems like cheating. Just my $.02

Why? The border has to be somewhere. Many state lines follow a river, such as Ohio, Indiana and Illiniois on the northern side of the Ohio and Kentucky on the south, Nebraska and Iowa on the Missouri, probably a few others.

A river is one thing...when we're talking about large expansive bodies of water (Great Lakes, large ocean sounds etc)....it's a little iffy. For instance my home county, Monroe County, NY technically has about a 30 mile long "international border" with Canada about 20 miles out into Lake Ontario. But it's not like I can just hop the border over to Canada. You can't live near the boarder of my county and Canada. I don't feel like I live in a "border area" About an hour away in Buffalo/Niagara falls; Fort Erie/Niagara Falls Ontario is RIGHT THERE across the Niagara river. I don't know it just seems less legit for territorial waterspace over a large body of water than a border where you can physically walk/drive across. Even for river borders, at the very least you can see in plain site the other state/country on the other side of the river and there will probably be a bridge passage somewhere nearby.
