  1. Wow, I grew up in a part of Massachusetts that boarded on the Rhode Island state line. It’s amusing because Rhode Islanders have a hang up of taking a car trip that is any more than 10 minutes down the road.

    I assume this distorted sense of time and distance is an illusion created by RI’s small geographic size . I had cousins who lived in Rhode Island who felt visiting us was traveling to the other end of the Earth. We only lived 20 minutes away!

    • Here are some additional “fun facts” about the Ocean State (via Wikipedia): “Formerly named the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations since its accession to the Union in 1790, voters in the state approved an amendment in November 2020 to the state constitution, formally renaming itself the State of Rhode Island.[17][18] Rhode Island’s official nickname is the ii Ocean State, a reference to the large bays and inlets that amount to about 14% of its total area.”
