A state with extreme scerenity, significant sunshine (over 300 days of sunshine a year in Denver) and the best opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. The Rocky Mountains make it the state with the highest average elevation. Denver, its capital and largest city (population 570,000), is called the “Mile High City” because it’s capitol is exactly one mile in elevation. Denver is consistently ranked among the top of America’s “fittest” , “thinnest” , and “most educated” cities. About half of the state’s 5 million residents live in the Greater Denver Metro area. Other important population centers include Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Fort Collins—all of which are located on the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains. Colorado has extreme variations in climate. People in Denver can get a tan and snow ski in the same day. The enormous flat plains of eastern Colorado get huge thunderstorms in the spring and summer that make for a great lightening show and tornadoes. Colorado is where the song, America the Beautiful was written. “For purple mountains majesty above the fruited plain” describes Colorado to a tee. Beef cattle and wheat are its two largest agricultural products.more...
The welcome sign says, "Welcome to Michigan. Great Lakes. Great Times." I don't know why because there isn't much to do or see. Hunting, yes. Fishing, yes. Ice fishing, yes. And Sometimes snow skiing. Then there is the world's largest Christmas store in Frankenmuth, Greenfield Village in suburban Detroit and Mackinac Island (pronounced MAK-IN-AW) in northern Michigan, which is only good in the summer. Does all this qualify as something to do? Not in my opinion, but that's just me. Generally Michigan is a boring state to live in. No culture. No diversity, unless wiggers, hicks and white suburban yuppies count. No mountains. No amusement parks. No beaches or hot women in bikinis, except in the far south if you like polluted Lake Michigan. No awsome shopping opportunites like Chicago, Seattle or San Fran. There aren't many high-paying jobs either--at least not as many as there used to be because they all went to the Sun Belt or Mexico. Most people, IF they have a job, work in auto assembly plants downstate. The rest are either hick farmers and low-paying service workers. You will be looking for a long time to find work in this state. It should be part of Ontario. Michigan is not a very good state but, in fairness, is not the worst either. That would go to one of those Great Plains or Redneck States.more...
To procrastinate by eating.
Often characterized by several trips back to the fridge even after one's hunger has long been sated. Sometimes accompanied by other activities like watching TV or trolling the web. Foods eaten are usually unsubstantial snacks and leftovers.
Also: procrastineation, pracrastineating, procrastineater
"You start writing that Poli Sci paper yet?"more...
"Thought it was due tomorrow."
"Atta boy. And is that your third bowl of Frosted Flakes or fourth?"
"Fifth. But check it out: Planet Earth reruns. Shallow Seas. Oh man this a bonkers episode. Definitely my second-favorite."
"Dude you polished off all the chocolate milk, too? Damn. You sure can procrastineat with the best of them."
"I wish Sigourney Weaver narrated my life like in Planet Earth. Slash Stranger than Fiction."
"Not nearly as bad as it looked. Clever."
"So much better than Blades of Glory."
"Maggie Gyllenhaal is a fox."
"Is that how you pronounce her name?"
"No idea. I improvise it every time."
"So you're not gonna start the paper till like 2am huh."
"Absolutely not. I'm at least half a box of mac & cheese away from even turning on my computer."
"You know what? I'm gonna go Netflix Stranger Than Fiction right now. You want me to add anything to the queue?"
"Yeah whichever disc has 'Great Plains' in it. I wanna see the antelope get its whole program ruined by that gator again."
"And high def."
"I like my animal-attack films highly defined."
"I will not watch animals attack in anything but the slowest of motion and highest of definition."
"Nothing but the best will do."
"Less than the best is unacceptable."
"I've been spoiled. When I watch animal attack clips in regular-mo and -def, I get confused."
"I don't even know what I'm looking at."
Westchester is upstate according to New York City. High school kids drive Mercedez, Bmw's, range rovers, etc... to school. There really is no ghetto except for some parts of Westchester, such as Yonkers, White Plains, Peekskill and others. They aren't that bad, but will definitely freak the residents of Rye, Scarsdale, Somers, Bedford.more...
The county is filled with yuppies, japs, wasps, anything you can think of. Every town thinks that they are better then the next. Competition and Gossip is what makes their worlds go round. Looking good is a must, you have to wear the latest fashion and look ultra sexy in it. The Westchester Mall located in White Plains is a main stop for any Westchesterite who knows what is going on. At this mall they have everything for anyone with money (my favorite mall in the entire country). Each floor basically goes by class... except for some late bloomers. The bottom floor is the richest with Tiffany, Gucci, Lilly, Tumi, and soon to come Chanel, and David Yurman. Second floor is family floor it has lots of childrens stores including Crewcuts the kid store of J. Crew... so cute. But, it also has Louis, Coach, Micheal Kors... etc... then the top floor is for the people that wished they have money.. .minus J. Crew which should be on the second floor.
Northern Westchester wishes they live in Rye and Scarsdale but wont admit it. Somers is extremely wealthy home to many CEO's of Pepsi, IBM etc. Nobody knows this town because there is absolutely nothing...
1. Out here on the plains buffalo are still called bison, so when they cross with moose they are called Moosin which is not unlike the muffalo found in Western Minnesota.
2. Any non-stereotypical cross between animals or events.
Don't shoot the moosin; it is an endangered species.
They have been moosin around since high school.
The largest metropolis of Texas. As of 2007, the fastest growing metro area in the country and home to almost 6 million residents. The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is almost nothing but a sea of similar looking cookie cutter housing developments that continue unabated for miles and miles across the plains of north-central Texas. All the Metroplex cities are almost the same; Garland looks like Plano looks like Carrolton looks like Irving looks like Mesquite. The DFW Metroplex has more shopping malls than anywhere else in the U.S. The massive DFW Airport lies between Dallas and Fort Worth and is the 4th busiest airport in the U.S. as well as being the main hub for American Airlines. Despite being in the same metro area, Dallas and Forth Worth are vastly different. Fort Worth is way more “western” and friendly while Dallas is more haughty and “yuppie” or urban-professional. The Dallas-Fort Worth area was traditionally driven by big oil but is now reliant on high-tech industries, wholesale/retail trade and financial services. There are more millionaire oil magnates in the DFW area than anywhere else in the U.S. People in Dallas-Fort Worth generally drive either SUVs or pickup trucks. The woman are hot for the most part. Most of the people adhere to the religion of Dallas Cowboys football on Sundays.more...
The Hoosier State. The Crossroads of America. A quaint Midwest/Great Lakes State that has just as many nice areas as cornfields and manufacturing plants. Indianapolis is the capital and largest city, and 12th largest in the U.S. No other city in Indiana comes even remotely close to being rivaled in size, culture and commerce. Other population centers are in the Chicago suburbs, Fort Wayne, South Bend-Mishawaka and Evansville. Indiana is fairly diverse with both rich and poor communities and in between. The town of Carmel, a suburb of Indianapolis, is probably the state’s nicest and most affluent and fastest growing, but the city of Gary--near Chicago--is the epitome of rust belt decline, grime and grit and urban decay.more...
To say that Indiana is a hick state is hogwash. It has no more hicks than any other state. Most of them live generally south of Bloomington. There are also a number of hicks of Kentucky descent in the Indianapolis area. The state's 6.5 million Hoosiers (14th in population) are generally average people who live in small towns, sizeable communities and their suburbs. Most Hoosiers live within just a few hours drive from large Midwest metropolitan areas: Chicago, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Lousiville, St. Louis, Columbus and even Detroit. Very few states have that distinction. The Indianapolis area has tons of suburban soccer moms who live on cul-de-sacs, drive SUVs and hog the road. Hoosiers are generally conservative and often divided in loyalty between P...
