Best Practice Makes Perfect

A collaboration with Domino developers about how to do it and how to get it right in Domino

What do Delaware and Hawaii have in common, different from other states?

Hint 1: Some may say it's really not Delaware, but Ohio. Phooey on the quibblers, say I.

Hint 2: You probably have to be about as old as I am, or live in certain states (oddly, those states do not include those mentioned above), to get this without the assistance of Google (which I would consider cheating -- you're on your honor!).

Be the first with a correct answer, and win fame and glory! No actual prizes, sorry.

1) Possible answers

Since I live next to Deleware (in Maryland)I'm going to guess it either has to do with "no sales tax" or "tax benefits for incorporating there".

2) that’s not it...

Chris, I don't know whether these states may be unique in that way, but that's not the sort of thing I had in mind. Think slightly silly.

3) Not "no sales tax"

It isn't no sales tax, New Hampshire would be on the list.

4) The only states where it is legal to throw snowballs?

Anything to do with Presidents?

5) I’m enjoying this...
Andre Guirard | 2/6/2009 3:26:04 PM

Doesn't have anything to do with snowballs, doesn't have anything to do with Presidents.

All right, kids, go ahead and use Google. Heh.

6) my Google-fu is weak

I can't find any correlation between Delaware and Hawaii, particularly one that might tangentially relate to Ohio.

7) I know!

They both have two pairs of letters in their names.
