10 Things you did not know about Hawaii

by david daly on 11/09/11

-Nicole Kidman was born here

-Plastic bags are illegal

-Population is only 1.3mm, but 7mm visitors pass through every year

-It is home to the only official royal residence in the United States (Iolani Palace)

-It is home to the tallest mountain in the world (If you measured from the base under the sea) Mauna Kea is 33,000 feet from base to summit (4,000 feet taller than Everest)

-No billboards (one of only 4 states to ban these eye sores)

-Hawaii residents consume more Spam per capita than any other state.  It is even served in restaurants

-The Hawaiian alphabet only has 12 letters- 5 vowels and 7 consonants.  That is why all of the town names kinda look the same!

-It is located 2,390 miles from California

-There are no snakes in Hawaii.  There are no tarantulas either- the Brady Bunch writers wish they had Google back then.
