What's your best guess without looking: How many Canadian Provinces are at least partially south of the northernmost part of the US?

That may be so but in the true 4 corner timecube Earth exist as 4 - 90
degree opposite corner quadrants, but not as a 360 degree circle.
Earth is Cubic opposites, nothing as circle. A singularity inflicted
scholar has not the mentality, freedom or guts to know that
academia is a Trojan Horse mind control. Singularity brotherhood
owns your brain, destroying your ability to think Cubicism. Evil
academia blocks out Time Cube site and suppresses its discussion and
debate. You are an educated singularity idiot who can stupidly deny
Nature's Harmonic 4 simultaneous 24 hour days within a single
rotation of Earth, or even make parody of the Cubic Creation
Principle - but your mental ability to comprehend the greatest social
and scientific discovery of all human existence has been lobotomized
by the evil academic singularity bastards hired to destroy your
ability to think opposite.

Therefor, ponies.

Damn! The question was how many. Do you know the number of provinces without looking it up? (Canadians should recuse themselves.)

And here I thought it was going to be this trivia question:

What is the first foreign country you get to heading south from Windsor, Ontario?

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The United States. Detroit, specifically.

Nope.
Detroit is north of Windsor.

You still reach the US first though.

A new one for you:

How many Canadian provinces are completely south of Alaska?(think: latitude)

In other words, how many Canadian provinces' have a northernmost point that is still south of Alaska's southernmost point?

Answer:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
THREE: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island.

The island of Newfoundland, itself, qualifies but they are legally paired with Labrador-- parts of which are north of the southermost latitude of Alaska.

Some specifics:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Ketchikan, Alaska is close to the southernmost part of the state, and it lies at 55.3 degree North latitude. Nearby, Prince Rupert (British Columbia) is at 54 degrees North, so the southern Alaskan border is somewhere between those two numbers.
The northmost points of BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec (and Labrador) are all well above 55 degrees north.
St. Anthony, Newfoundland is pretty much the northern tip of the island, and it is at 51 degrees North. But it is officially "Newfoundland and Labrador", so no dice on the technicality.
Of the three correct answers, New Brunswick is the northernmost. At the topmost part of NB is the city of Dalhousie, and it is basically 48 degrees North-- well south of 54 degrees.

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

Here's a different one:

Without looking at a map or globe, if you fly due south from Jacksonville, Florida, how many South American countries will you cross over before reaching Antarctica?


Spoiler (click to reveal)
None. As you fly south the entire continent will be to your left, i.e east of you.

Got that one, but only because I had to travel to Chile a few times for a previous job. Every time I went I would think
