    BGP QOTD: Can you name Canada's 10 Provinces?

    Or how many of the 31 states of Mexico can you name?

    I sat and thought hard on them and only came up with 6 for Canada.

    Mexico I was able to come up with 9 without looking them up.

    To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible

    I got 7, mostly from watching CFL. I also got one territory that I thought was a province.

    4 Mexican states.

    Got 7 for Canada, and after seeing the list there's one that I would've never gotten.

    To test yourself, I found a couple Sporcle quizzes:

    Provinces of Canada (I got 12/13)
    Canadian Provinces Map Quiz

    States of Mexico (Yikes, I only knew 9 of 31)
    States of Mexico Map Quiz

    I could name all 10 of Canada's provinces, and all 3 of their territories, and have been to 8 of the Canadian provinces (haven't been to P.E.I. or Newfoundland).

    However, I couldn't name a single Mexican state...not one. I've probably been to Mexico 5 times, 6 or 7 of their cities, and couldn't tell you one state that any of those cities were even in. I don't have a clue what state Mexico City is in, for starters.

    I didn't know there were 10 provinces, so that should answer your question.

    Mexico City is an independent federal entity, basically the same way we do Washington DC here in the US.

    I got all but one of Canada's provinces (Manitoba), but knew it's capital (Winnepeg). I could name two of Mexico's states, and only because of the dog (Chihuahua) and the sauce (Tobasco).

    I know we have above average intelligent participants on BGP. However, can you imagine how many people out there don't know the names of the 50 US states?

    My grade school required you to know the 50 states alphabetically along with all the corresponding capitols in order to pass the 4th grade.

    I wonder how many national decision makers could get a 100 on this?!

    FWIW, I confused Bahrain and Qatar.
