mind games

Is there a great mind in our midst? Below is a Genius Challenge from a website I love: mentalfloss.com. The premise is simple – guess to which state each clue refers. For example, the first one, “lbs. of laundry” would be Washington – as in “washing” a “ton.” Get it?

1) lbs. of laundry?
2) Pirate of no return?
3) Ritter’s posterior?
5) No more mining?
6) Harry, for 3/4 year.
7) Graphite in blood.
8) Dirty player’s need?
9) Flash’s plea?
10) Put to bed by Barb’s beau?
11) Remember it?
12) A shade about nothing?

I’ll post the answers later. Let’s keep our minds sharp! No cheating! (Yaya, I expect great things from you.)
