One of the greatest places in the whole freakin' world. It's the capital of Texas. The weather varies from being incredibly hot to rainy, and stormy. Sometimes there are tornadoes. There are animals like rattlesnakes and armdillos there. The price of living isn't that expensive, and it's just a very good place to be.
When I move out, I'm going to Austin, TX.
State that lies between Texas and Arizona, largly unknown to most citizens of the United States except for residents, the government, the military, conspiracy theorists, and some artsy folks. Best known for its nukes, Roswell, Santa Fe, chile, its perpetually sunny weather, and desert environment and landscape.more...
Currently and historically, New Mexico is home to a lot of top secret scientific research. Because of this, New Mexico would have the third largest nuclear arsenal in the world if it split from the US. But realistically such a thing would never happen. New Mexico also has a huge hole in the ground called WIPP for storing nuclear waste.
The state has a large Hispanic population, most of whom don't know or refuse to speak Spanish. The state also has a large Native American population, most of whom belong to several Pueblo tribes. There are also many Caucasians, mostly of Germanic descent.
Although most Americans are ignorant about New Mexico, it has played an important role in history. It was the first region of what is now the US to be settled, it was the site of the first successful Indian Revolt, it kept the Civil War from spreading west by preventing Texas and the South from taking over Mexico and California, it was the site of the first nuclear weapons test, and, well, Roswell, if you...
Ohio is one of the best states in America, if not the best. We don't have to worry about messed up politicians or disasters (other than floods and a few tornadoes). There is a great balance of city attractions and countryside. People are generally nice and very opinionated. Lot of ethnic background in Ohio, one of the largest states in America. Great place to grow up if you live suburban Columbus; you get a mix of safety but all the good OSU parties. An yeah, definitely better than crappy-ass michigan.
Ohio is so much better than Michigan, pwned.
Commonly accepted as the strongest tornado possible. According to Thomas Schlatter, the Fujita scale goes all the way up to F-12, which is winds the speed of sound. The article was actually written in Fune 1986 and was cited in the Jan/Feb 98 issue of the same periodical. Since before the original article was written in 1986, there has never been a documented tornado of F-6 or above, and the author states it's not likely to happen.
James R. McDonald includes a table of Fujita levels and wind speeds. F-6 and above is labled as "inconcievable damage". Wind speed are as follows (in miles per hour):
F-12 736 and above
note: The speed of sound at -3ºC is 736 miles per hour.

The largest city in Kentucky, with 700,000 people and another million or so in the surrounding suburbs. You know that you're from Louisville if any of the following apply to you:
*Your "International" airport has only one passenger flight that actually leaves the 48 contiguous U.S. states.more...
*The in-state sports rivalry is paid more attention to than the national championship.

*You've shovelled 10+ inches of snow and worn shorts in the same week.

*You give directions based on landmarks that no longer exist or st...
