5. The forests of the Olympic Peninsula are among the rainiest places in the world and the only rain forests (such as the Hoh Rain Forest) in the continental United States
I chose to comment on the one I know a decent amount about from things I learned in the Boy Scouts (I was young, and they were awesome since we were always doing outdoor stuff. I don't wanna hear it. Lol!). Anyway, Washington isn't the only state. They actually begin in Alaska and work their way down to California. And there are a few on the Eastern Seaboard as well, though nothing like what we have out here.
Here's a few from me about this great state I call home:
--Washington is the birthplace of both Jimi Hendrix (Seattle) and Bing Crosby (Tacoma).
--The world's first soft-serve ice cream machine was located in an Olympia Dairy Queen.
--Puget Sound's many islands are served by the largest ferry fleet in the United States.
--The percentage of non-religious people in Washington is the highest of any state, and church membership is among the lowest of all states.
--The state of Washington is the only state to be named after a United States president
And since I'm bored at work, a few other random ones:
--In 10 minutes, a hurricane releases more energy than all the world's nuclear weapons combined.
--On average people fear spiders more than they do death.
--Only one person in two billion will live to be 116 or older.
--TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters only on one row of the keyboard.
--"Go." is the shortest complete sentence in the English language.
--Michael Jordan makes more money from NIKE annually than all of the Nike factory workers in Malaysia combined.
--There are no clocks in Las Vegas gambling casinos.
