How Much Do You Know About California?

I am a proud American and a proud Californian. I hate it when people don't know anything about their own state or just common knowledge geography. It makes me crazy that people don't even know their own state's motto. Everybody should know a little something about where they come from.

There are so many stereotypes about California and the people who live here that I just hate. People always think Los Angeles or Hollywood when they think California, and we're so much more than that. I want to tell people about the California they don't see in TV or movies, the real California.
