Surrounded by the beautiful Ozark mountains, it's a very picturesque area, until one of their hand sized beatles lands on your face, or you look and realize that all the trees are covered in webs made my catepillars that just happen to eat trees. And of course don't forget the various species of tics, chiggers and various other body infesting pests that run rampant through out the state.
It's probably one of the most beautiful places to get bit by someone unknown species of spider.
"Why would you want to go to Misery...?"
The state was partially responsible for starting the civil war (despite what you might hear from the south) so basically they were posers before the word poser came into wide use. They were little toy soldiers fighting hard to for slavery and the South even though they lived in the Midwest so they could sit at what they thought was the cool kids lunch table.
So, this is for every stupid hick and redneck that is reading this right now: Take of your California shirt, turn off MTV, and come to the realization that you are a stupid redneck who is from the Midwest. You are living a lie that's based on a lie. California is not what you think, even though it is the most beautiful and most fun place in the world. Laguna Beach is not the real Orange County. I was born and raised in Orange County, in Huntington Beach, but I had to move away for a semester. Now I know what a terrible place the Midwest is.
