So does that mean no one is bipolar there?



Maybe.

Or maybe it means 2/3 of all Hoosiers are addicted to lithium whether they're bipolar or not.  ;)

David,

 Having lived most of my life on the west coast, I know almost nothing about your homestate, I'm sorry to say.  I did do a poetry reading in Evansville in 2003 to promote a book of mine, and that's as much time as I ever spent in Indiana and I would take your quiz if I could answer any questions, but I can't, cause I just don't know any answers!


I live in Sydney, Australia, Rayn, and what I knew about Indiana, prior to taking David's quiz, could fit on the back of a postage stamp. I only knew a couple of things I'd heard David talk about at his blog. But I was keen to know more, so went to the Web and gleaned as much information as I could put together. I was careful not to read any of the previous responses prior to submitting my own responses. I had a lot of fun answering David's Indiana quiz and learnt a great deal about his home state, from the Web, in the process. How about giving it a go, yourself? It's fun!  :D

Phewww!!!  That was complete guesswork David.  And what on earth is one of the great lakes doing anywhere near Indiana???  I've always thought it was much further south.  My answer for the indian tribes question is based solely on the fact one of the pups in my current litter is called Pawnee.  I have no idea if it is a tribe native to Indiana or not! LOL
