I'm hanging out with Prof. Nate McCrady right now in Prof. Jason Wright's kitchen. Given that I once sat in Frank Shu's stellar astrophysics class with both of them, it's a lot of fun to append "Prof" to each of their names!
Anyway, this post is about how Nate blew my mind. He's a professor at U. Montana and he just informed me of the following facts:
- There is one area code in Montana.
- There are only 1,000,000 people in the whole state.
- The biggest city is Billings, pop. 105,000 (Pasadena has 138,000)
- There are only fourteen high schools with 1000+ students...in all of Montana
