Rio Grande is attached to the Gulf which is attached to the Ocean and therefore not a lake, so if hypothetically a state of a country was on one side of that river, and a state of another county was on the other side of the river, they wouldn't border, right? Since it is only lakes we are accounting for?

If that still counts as a border, then we need to know about Hawaii. The Pacific River runs between it and both Canada and Mexico, so if rivers count as borders Hawaii will need to be added to my answers.

I'll have to pass that one along to the rules committee. You should expect a response no later than January 9, 2121.

Are you me? Only not as good looking?

I forgot the rules, so I started answering trying to think of unique answers. I remembered at some point that it was actually similar...so hopefully I fixed all the answers.
