But even as an adult believer of UFO's, as an 8-year-old, I definitely didn't buy that Minnesota had 10,000 lakes. Not possible. It's kinda like saying "a picture is worth a thousand words." No one is that gullible.

Minnesota, by official count, has 11,842 lakes that are 10 acres or larger in size. (Another site claims 15,291, with the same size requirement.) There is no doubt that there are more than 10,000.
