Not the best state in the country, but very far from the worst. Home to three million people, some really sweet cities, three great univerties, a whole bunch of stellar small private colleges and a ton of true natural beauty in its lush northeast bluff country and statewide river valleys, lakes, and yes, rolling fields. Iowa is a national leader in education (students in many other states including Texas take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, and everyone's heard of the ACT, based in Iowa City) and is leading the way in biofuels to reduce the nation's dependence on oil. To dispel the ignorance displayed elsewhere on this post, here's a state breakdown of cities and topography. If seventy synonyms for boobs is alright to post, so is this.
Central Iowa: Des Moines
, located at the intersection of I-80 and I-35, is the largest city with a metro of a half million and is the state capital, second only to London for the title of insurance capital of the world. Ames
(80,000 metro) is about a half hour north of Des Moines and is home to Iowa State University
, a land grant school of 30,000 respected around the world for its engineering and agricultural programs. Central Iowa is, outside of river vallies, very flat, and outside of the Des Moines area and Ames is very sparsely populated.
Eastern Iowa: The most densely p...
Simply put, the best town in the world home to the best state U in the world, the University of Iowa
. Voted #1 Best Place to Live in the USA, named most cultured city per capita in the nation, it was the first city in the world to elect a female mayor, it has one of the top five public school districts in the nation, it's the home of the ACT (test) and of 115,000 intelligent, diverse people. 30,000 party hardy college kids, a sweet downtown, a world class concert hall with world class entertainment and Big Ten Iowa Hawkeye athletics make it one sweet place to live.
Ned: hey Jim, you should come back to Iowa with me and hang out this weekend

Jim: (awed silence)
To get inexplicably caught doing a dirty deed and and then blame it on someone else. Used mostly for very illegal situations.
Dude, my parents were gonna kill me when they found my stash, but there was no way I was going down before the concert this weekend so I totally roved it. My brother's grounded til he's forty.
An awesome state that is a paradise for outdoorsmen and city dwellers alike. It is illogical to call it "Minnesota Junior," being that it has a larger population than Minnesota by over 400,000. Madison rocks, it's easily the coolest state capitol and has one of the sweetest colleges in the country. Milwaukee offers all the amenities of a metropolis without being as much of a black hole for state resources like the Twin Cities or Chicago. Hurray for my northeastern neighbor Wisconsin.
While it is possible that Wisconsin is the best state in the Midwest
, the Hawkeyes will always be better than the Badgers.
A twenty dollar bill. And twenty Franklins would be two thousand dollars, not twenty. I think T Wade was going for twenty Washingtons. Let's not confuse the foreigners, now.
I'll trade you my five boring Jacksons for that sweet ass Franklin.
