There isn't even a part of Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania that goes that long between exits.
Haha, that would be almost 1/3 of the entire state east-west! It would be the entire state going north-south.

I goes a ways on the far western end w/o an exit, but certainly not 30 miles.

I was surprised that Indiana is ranked 19th. Indiana is considered the Brain Bank of America. Indiana always ranks first in retaining High School Seniors. 87% of High School Seniors in Indiana attend a College/University within the State of Indiana. then 79% of College Grads seek Employment with in the state. Indiana's average IQ of 101.7 is 41.3 points lower than My IQ.

to be more correct its 28 miles from I-90 and US 20( Exit 2) to I-90 and US 202 ( Exit 3)

The state I was born in is number 2 (New Hampshire) and the one I live in is 40th (Georgia). When I moved down to GA back in grade school to what was considered the best school system in GA (Peachtree City) they were a year behind what I had learned the year before in NH.

I can't believe there are 48 states that are even dumber than New Hampshire! You all must be retarded, huh?

Same with Florida and NY. A few posters on the Long Island forum said that when their children went from NY to FL, the FL schools were 2 years behind. The textbooks the kids got in 10th grade in NY were what they received in 12th grade in FL. I guess it all depends where in the different states though.

Why is it an issue of ethnicity, why not an issue of poverty, economics, or culture? Are you suggesting nonwhites have lower IQ's than whites?

The numbers seem to be BS. Like Utah gets 87 in IQ, while California gets 101. However, California has one of the worst school results in the country, while Utah is near the top.

What seems to happen is that they have ranked IQ by asking liberal questions, such as "Has Obama recovered the economy?" I have seen it been done before, by professors who lacks any form of morals. Biased researches who have no problems lying, or using dishonest numbers to further their agenda, is one of the main reason people lose faith in science.

This ranking makes a lot more sense
