If someone is from a landlocked state, I could see them not knowing better.

Or even if someone is from a coastal state like Jersey but lives inland I could see it.

But if you LIVE on a barrier island, I'd think you'd kind of get the concept that the "land" you live on is not really land at all, but a non-permanent, shifting, thin pile of sand. Completely blows my mind.
