Curing cancer is a slap to the face of my dead brother-in-law.
Haven’t consulted a proper map yet, but I’m missing both Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Pennsylvania and Delaware… I think that’s all that’s missing.
I needed the map, and I was a maps kid. I completely missed the swath of Midwestern states.
I think that’s why people in the know, just refer to them as ‘fly over states’
Well, but they’ve always been “flyover states” in your vernacular, and they truly are boring AF to fly over…or even to drive through.
Inorite, when I was a wee sprog we climbed into the van in the Big Valley every other year to visit our SoDak kinfolk. Crossing Wyoming into Nebraska into SoDak is bad enough…
One year there was a big shindig for my Okie roots and we did the loop thru the Grand Canyon, into Oklahoma, did all that, and headed north to Ioway and then SoDak, doing the northern route back thru Jellystone, PotatoStan, and then down the PCH back to Cowsville where we lived in central CA. Not all flyover states, but certainly the mentality and visual interest thereof. My one memory of the OK jaunt was all us young cousins got official (looking) OU jerseys with our age on them, my #8 was for one Joe Washington who apparently was a big deal in the day.
Dad, do trees poop?
Of course they do son. How do you think we get #2 pencils?
I was working on my quantum physics homework when my mom came barging in…
I switched to porn because it was easier to explain.
