A city in Washington County, MN. Situated between I-35 and Hwy 61, it has found a niche as a rest stop city - filled with gas stations (at one point this town of 14,000 had two Holidays and four Super America
s) and fast food restaurants.
Is referred to by the population as Flaketown. Which is quite apt at describing the people, as well as the paint on the traffic signs.
The population is mostly white, with a handful of other ethnicities represented sparingly. This results in a substantial proportion of the student body being incredibly racist. Of course, the town is close enough to the Twin Cities
where the rest of the student body ends up being priss and politically correct
to a disgusting degree. The few who fall in between the two insane ideologies are generally left friendless (but don't worry, they'll go to college out of state and make something of themselves)
Most graduates of Forest Lake High School will end up at Century College in Mahtomedi, MN - the nearest community college. The politically correct-minded will end up at U of M Twin Cities or UMD, or one of the 'in the middle of nowhere' UW schools. Few will escape to bigger and better places and they will never look back.
Since there's nothing to do in town, lots of people get wasted and high. Mostly in public, like at the skatepark or at the dump of a movie theater. This is why anyone with a brain gets out of Flaketown while they still can.
Guy: Alright! Duluth
roadtrip! Let's stop at the Forest Lake Burger King before we go since it's on the way!
Flaker 1: Dude, what do you want to do?
Flaker 2: Let's get high.
Flaker 1: Sounds good, I'm failing every class anyway.
Flaker 2: Wanna get high IN class?
Flaker 1: I love you man.
