Though misguided at points, SC's rabid culture of states-rights and state-individualism is something to respect. That and Idaho has the most retarded shape. And Andrew Jackson is one of my favorite presidents. He recognized the evil of an offical national bank.

What? Just having a beach puts South Carolina over Idaho... come on people! This is the first round, you gotta get your heads out of your butts!

maddox wrote:Not only is Idaho a ho-hum state, Idahoans (their word, not mine) are gullible. Idaho was named in 1860 by George M. Willing, a mining lobbyist who pulled the name out of his ass (look it up). He picked the name "idaho" and told congress that it was a Shoshone Indian word that meant "Gem of the Mountains." Most westerners in the United States are completely devoid of any cultural heritage, so it has always been popular out here to latch onto American Indian monikers. When people finally caught on that "Idaho" was a made up name, it was too late. The name caught on and the morons who live there have called themselves "Idahoans" ever since.

I propose that we give Idaho back to the British, since that's who we got it from in the first place. I don't think it'll be too much of a problem because there aren't a lot of people in Idaho. According to the 2004 Census report, Idaho's population is 1,393,262. Just for comparison, there are 1,970,000 cows in Idaho. New rule: if your state has more cows than people, you don't get to be a state anymore.


It's the first round... yes SC is a redneck state. Yes, SC was the the first leave the Union. Yeah, South Carolina is still North Carolina's bitch. But compared to Idaho... seriously? I like potatoes as much as the next guy, but that's really all they've got. They should not make it past the first round.

Yeah, they're pretty good in Idaho too. ;-7

Actually isn't the story behind Picabo Street's name that her parents were hippies and basically called her "little girl" when she was growing up. When they decided to travel abroad, they needed to give her a formal name for passport purposes so she was named after the street they lived on.
