Alabama is better than Mississippi.

It's also got a sweet space museum, and parts of it are all up in NASA. That said, it's usually in the last 5 on lists like Literacy Rate and average education level....

But there are worse places to live. Like Indiana.

My dad and I drove from California to New York with a paper map and no GPS (this was before GPS units were affordable for the common person) and got lost several times. It definitely would have been a much less interesting trip had we used a GPS.

like when apple updated their iphone from google maps to apple maps.

I swear, that damn phone was trying to get me killed. It dropped me in the middle of compton 3 times, when the address i punched in was NOT COMPTON. being a white as sour cream guy, in an all black crown vic ex-cop car, in a predominately gang-run mexican neighborhood, is a bad thing. even worse when its 8 PM.

I make up conversations with people all the time.

I usually forget them after I realize it wouldn't work, because I can't articulate myself as well as I can in my head, and most are not smart enough to generate the responses I assigned them.

It makes me sad, I don't do it anymore very often, as the only person I could come up with appropriate responses for is so unpredictable that I never actually come up with an accurate response

Difficult. I was not expecting that exam to be so hard. The last essay question we had didn't even apply to anything we'd studied in the class so I ended up bullshitting the entire essay, which was obvious and poorly written. :( I don't think I'm going to get very good marks on this test.

Indiana is not for everybody, but there are those of us from Indiana that think it is the best place to live. (I happen to think that an unplowed cornfield covered in snow is possibly the most beautiful sight in the world.) The same goes for West Virginia, and probably Mississippi (for which I personally do not have anecdotal evidence.) In short, some places are beautiful to those who grew up there, and love their homes, but if you don't like it then you are welcome not to move there.

I feel most of the country simply looks better in the summer. I find rolling fields of green crop to be beautiful. But I also find expansive desert and burnt red rock to be beautiful.

There's certainly beauty in the snow, but it's got nothing on blooms.

But there are worse places to live. Like Indiana.


Indiana is not for everybody, but there are those of us from Indiana that think it is the best place to live. (I happen to think that an unplowed cornfield covered in snow is possibly the most beautiful sight in the world.) The same goes for West Virginia, and probably Mississippi (for which I personally do not have anecdotal evidence.) In short, some places are beautiful to those who grew up there, and love their homes, but if you don't like it then you are welcome not to move there.

There's very few things Kentucky requires of it's citizenry. One is to know about basketball and bourbon. Another is to mock Indiana whenever an opportunity presents itself.

Still another is to remark loudly and at great length that you'd still rather move to Indiana than Texas.

You would think the whole "no alcohol sales on Sunday" thing would be easily fixed by simply buying your Sunday alcohol on Saturday, but in my time there, I almost never thought that far ahead.

Ah, that's how you tell the professionals from the amateurs.

How awful it must have been, growing up with Indiana RIGHT THERE across the river, being better at basketball than you, and knowing that if only you weren't scared of water...
I hear velociraptor tastes like chicken.
