If you went to school in America, you most likely had to learn all the state capitals, but you probably didn’t learn much about them. For example, Juneau, the capital of Alaska, is bigger in area than the entire state of Delaware! I now wonder about their public transit services. That’s just one of 50 weird (but interesting) facts you never knew about the capital cities of each of the United States, presented by John Green in the latest mental_floss video. I think they really should have named Des Moines “Fort Raccoon” instead.
