Hawaii????? I don't have a whole lot of time for research; fixing two cars, and redoing an apartment complex (just closed on it) is taking most my time.

CO.

There is a 1,500-sq.-mi. section of northern Colorado, west of Denver, not owned by the U.S. three days a year. According to the records of the General Land Office, this territory "was acquired neither through the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, the Texas annexation of 1845, nor by treaties with the Utes who apparently never claimed it." This un-American region--its residents possibly not U.S. citizens--included the town of Breckenridge. To check this further, in 1977 the Almanac editors called the Colorado Bureau of Land Management, who admitted the questionable area "was blank" on their maps, showing no admission date to the U.S. According to the Colorado Historical Society, a strip of land 90 mi. long and 30 mi. wide in the Breckenridge area had been a no-man's-land due to an early surveyor's error, but was offically made part of the U.S. on Aug. 8, 1936, with a special proviso that the area retain "the right to be a free and independent kingdom three days each year." Since then, a "No Man's Land" festival has been held annually in August. However, part of the region may still not be U.S. territory.

intersting none the less.

i can always depend on you Topher.

what state contains the lowest point below sea level?

edit..the four corners region of the US is the only place where you can stand in four states at the same time. four states joined by at +. there is a big circle you can stand in to be in all four states.

The Transamerica pyramid in San Francisco CA is 48 stories, or 853 feet, including the 212 ft. spire.
I guess that's the largest, so who cares about THIRD PLACE?

i had to dig for that one. hey you live there!

The Pyramid Arena is a 21,000 seat arena located in downtown Memphis at the banks of the Mississippi River. The facility was built in 1991 and is owned and operated jointly by the city of Memphis and Shelby County.

It is 32 stories high and has base sides of 180 m; it is the third largest pyramid in the world, and, at 98 m (321 feet) tall, it is taller than the Statue of Liberty. It was the home court for the University of Memphis men's basketball program, and later for the National Basketball Association's Memphis Grizzlies. However, both teams left The Pyramid in November 2004 to move into the newly built FedExForum.
