"Yeah, except for that black eye Hanson put on it.
Me: Gee, it's kind of hot to be doing that...
Dad: Damn Oklahoma weather.
Named after state of Oklahoma for its significant long, straight, panhandle.
Word is useful in conversations when simply stating 'I have an erection' would be inappropriate or awkward
"Mike, you coming?" 'Yeah, i'm just going to sit here for a minute or two, Oklahoma'
"Enjoying the show?" 'Oklahoma, ma'am.'
However, this is not for the lack of teaching. It just causes some to deny certain sciences and things of the like, putting more stock into Sunday school than Public school.
With all that being said, there are some beautiful places here, if you like seeing rolling countrysides and those sort of places. There are many landmarks here, and there is a lot of history here. Oklahoma is often referred to as "Native America" due to the fact that a lot of tribes of Indian live here, having been moved here when it was considered to be the indian territory. There is a lot of culture here, and it can be a fun place to learn about the history of this country... the underlying history that is, before it became the United States. That is to say, if you are interested in learning these sorts of things.
As for modern issues, there are very modern areas here as well, just not as many as you would find in say, New York, or California. We have Oklahoma City, and Tulsa as the main urban areas. There are also other smaller cities such as Stillwater for example that offer good schools, fairly large communities, and decent entertainment.
Personally, I do not care for OKC. It is too big, and too dirty. The roa...
i think not, oklahoma is tied with ohio and california for the most miss america pagaent winners ever. so suck it.
musicians from oklahoma range from country stars (big suprise right?) like reba and toby keith to alternative bands like all american rejects and hinder. so yes we offer more then just country music, you ignorant s.o.b's.
the bible belt?
ill give you that one, oklahoma is very christian based, but who says thats a bad thing? while places like new york and california arnt under our so called bible belt they also have enormously high crime rates. so while your sitting there critisizing our state for our conservative ways, we sleep safe at night knowing people like you live very far away.
yeah we got it and so does each and every other of the 49 friggin' states. racism isn't a regional or even a statewide thing. racism is a personal choice. an ignorant choice at that. when it comes to being diverse were pretty high up there, since we were practicly an over size trashcan for all the races that the rest of the united states didnt want back in 18 and 1900's.
oklahoma is a diverse, lovely place with friendly hard working people that hold open doors for eachother and smile as you pass them by. every once in while you come across an asshole that cant drive or an ignorant highschool dropout that make us all look bad, but realisticly we're state and just like any other we have oue highs and lows.
