Remember that time I came into your room after taking a muscle relaxant and we argued about what state has the longest coastline?
You must be Logged in to post a comment
Michigan has the longest freshwater coastline, Alaska has the longest overall coastline.
Oklahoma has approximately 11,611 miles of shoreline, slightly less than the estimated combined general (nontidal) coastline of the Atlantic, Gulf, Pacific, and Arctic Coasts (12,383 miles).
its maine look it up
what does this have to do with valerian root? lol
This was a trivia question a few nights ago.
MICHIGAN wins... most people forget because all of its shores are lakes not ocean.
Michigan has the second longest coastline in the U.S. It's not included on most lists because they count seawater coastline, not interior freshwater.
Michigan's total coastline is 3,288 miles, which is longer than second place, Florida.
actually, its Rhode Island.....dumbasses
Alaska has a coastline of 6640 miles.
idiots. look it up ?
actually its minnesota fools, check it.
over 20,000 lakes...
noboy has said anything about the muscle relaxant!!
Maine is a fail.
Alaska, Florida, and California all have significantly more coastline.
it is totally and without a doubt Michigan. Michigan's coastline is more than the entire east coast of the united states. If you have forgotten its two peninsula's, so that means 6 total sides of coast line.
michigan??? really???? lol
but this would totally be an argument i'd get in and i would have said california if i hadn't looked it up.
Minnesota actually has the most shoreline of any state, and it's all from lakes!
I would have never guessed it, but it's true!
You're all tripping. It's nevada.
i was the first to commenter, and i am not a college grad; still in school, but it's still michigan. the day i read this the first time, it just happened to be my "fun fact of the day" (yeah, they have an app for that) on my iphone. in apple i trust.
I hope the person that said Michigan is not a College Grad. That would be a real shame!!!!GO ALASKA!!! Hosers.
Definitely Maine. We have to be able to claim something.
coastlines are a perfect example of the impossibility of enumerating fractal geometric structures. pick a unit measure and go with it. the infoplease site used 30', so let's just assume somebody did the measuring for us and maine has the longest tidal shoreline.
"If all states with a coast were included, Michigan would rank second with 3,224 miles (5,189 km) of coast."
P.S. I hope Andre is not a college grad.
one time i took a bunch of relaxers and walked my dog around my neighborhood with no pants on
Maine: 228 miles of general coastline and 3,478 miles of tidal shoreline.
Alaska: 1,060 miles of general coastline and 2,521 miles of tidal shoreline.
So take your pick.

You're all fucking idiots.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States.
It also has the largest coastline, since there are 10 million fucking chain islands.
Don't forget about those, morons.
It is totally and without a doubt NOT Michigan.
Minnesota has 90,000 miles of shoreline, which is more than California, Hawaii, and Florida combined. You know, on account of the 10,000 lakes.
Oh, I love Pittsburgh...
Alaska destroys any other state with coastline. I'm from here, look it up we have about 44,000 miles of coastline.
The answer is michigan. Go pens
It's definitely Michigan, I just read it somewhere!
Noo Yawk has bigger (and better) everything! holla
wow this whole time i was CONFIDENT it was california...
Pick a state and you have a 2% chance of being right. So if I say Arizona or Wyoming, I have a 4% chance of being right.
RE: Anon at 7:28... that's not consistent with the source cited...
"Alaska: 1,060 miles of general coastline and 2,521 miles of tidal shoreline."
Those are the numbers for the ARCTIC OCEAN coast. Alaska also has 5,580 miles of Pacific Ocean coastline (and 31,383 miles of Pacific tidal shoreline).
State of Michigan claims 3288 miles of lake coastline:
Not even close.
I'm pretty sure it's Kansas. U jackasses
I think this is my favourite of all the texts
Maine has the longest coastline in the continental US. Other than that it's Alaska.
Alaska has over 3 million lakes if you want to start including Minnesota. I'm not even exaggerating...the literally have 3 million+ lakes.
Do you all really give a damn about a fucking coastline?
its Alaska, but within the continental United States the winner is North Carolina, but only if you take into count the outer banks along with its fractal like coastline
the correct answer is Alaska with 6,640 miles of coastline....... OMFG how can you NOT know its alaska? PLEASE! alaska is the LARGEST state (1/3 the size of the us).......... LOOK IT UP!
maine if you count all those goddam islands
Wow, did all the commenters here take muscle relaxants?..
Except for alaska. Than its michigan
Its actually michigan look it up.
