At FFC, we had a whole forum devoted to a trivia game wherein a person poses a question and the person who answers it correctly gets the honor of asking the next question. I thought I'd float the idea of a single thread and see if anyone wants to play. I'll go first [Image Can Not Be Found]

What is the only U.S. state that has never recorded an earthquake?

Hawaii?  It sounds like it should be obvious inspite of my first guess.

Nope. If you consider that earthquakes usually happen around the edges of continents...

Kansas is the geographic center of the lower 48 but not the geographic center of North America. Good guess, but that's not it.

I'll say.... Montana. Nothing ever happens there.

If Montana isn't correct then I'll put my second guess in for Minnesota.

Curses!

Okay, since she said we're close, it must be a middle place. I'm thinking a Dakota. North Dakota always whines that South Dakota gets all the attention, but South Dakota is more… middle.

Therefore I say-*coughcoughcough*th Dakota!

Tornados are not earthquakes, but Oklahoma is still not right.
