Did you know that:

- Arizona has a state reptile? (The Ridgenose Rattlesnake)

- The state flower of Arizona is a cactus?

- Arizona is the 6th largest state, and the 20th largest in population?

- Arizona was not admitted into the US until 1912?

- No one is entirely certain what the word "Arizona" actually means; it might be from the Aztec word "arizuma," (silver-bearing) or the Tohono O'odham "Aleh-zone" or Pima "Ali shonak" (both meaning small spring)?

- Sandra Day O'Conner, the first female Supreme Court judge, is from Arizona?

- If you are actually interested in any of this, you definitely need to get a life?
