Our awards ceremony had 30 minutes of HDMI errors as the speakers were attempting to announce the medalists...

Does it count as visiting a state if you drive through it on a road trip? What about layover airports?

While driving, it only counts if you get out of the car and visit someplace significant to you or the state. Layovers don't count. This is my opinion of course.

"Visiting" implies spending time doing something valuable, so only if you stop and do an activity other than driving through. Pit stops and hotel stays don't count - they are part of the process of travel.

Nope, not even for long stops. How I think about it is, airports (especially the post-security sections) are part of their own airport-bubble-universe, where each node has a loose connection (like the interface between two film bubbles) to their state. You can be in the Denver airport for 2 hours, but you're not really visiting Colorado: you're visiting an airport connected to Colorado. Make sense?

Then if you were to say take a train trip through several states and in each state get out and spend a half hour looking around, would that be visiting?

If you were to look at signage about a specific plant species native to that state at a rest area or a hotel, would that qualify it as a visit?
