i'd probably say Maine in a pinch if i had to name a "most innocuous US state."

i look at Miami as a sort of West Berlin, surrounded by the East Germany that is the rest of Florida. that's how i see Atlanta, too, come to think of it.

Lol yeah i can see that. Tho I think you can miss out on some real treats with that attitude. Athens, Savannah, all the cool waterfalls and caves in the mountains of North GA. And Macon, which I've only been to once, but any town where you can see the Allman bros. graves in beautiful Rose Hill Cemetery, shop at the official Otis Redding store, and visit Indian Mounds is pretty damn cool.

Maine's where that killer demon clown killed all those kids. Also where the four kids found that dead body in the woods.

i personally look to the midwest for my innocuousness

i might've said a Midwest state as an example of innocuousness too ... until the denizens of several such states went & elected evil asshats like Scott Walker, Michelle Bachmann and Steve King.

Probably Vermont, but I wanna say that Maryland is somewhere in the running.

Ha, yes, I'll consider this next time I'm hanging out in Fredneck.

Hawaii seems pretty innocuous

Idaho has three essential things, at least:
- The caldera entrance to Twin Falls
- SR 95 from Boise to Coeur D'Alene. It takes forever and it's so pretty.
- Priest Lake

On a cultural level, eh. Built To Spill play Seattle more often than most Seattle bands. And Boise is a loooong drive, if that gives perspective.
That KKK sheriff candidate is probably running in the same county as Priest Lake, to be fair.

I crossed SR 95 a couple of times today actually as I do most weekends. And as for your guess regarding the KKK sheriff candidate you would be absolutely correct.

I've lived here for almost six years now and I've been to Seattle and Portland dozens of times but have yet to go to Boise.

being from Idaho didn't mean I was going to be a violent racist

I love talking to people in my hometown, in rural-ass upper michigan, about Idaho and having them all freak out about how crazy and backwoods and racist it obviously must be while not realizing that they live in a far more crazy and occasionally racist backwoods place.

Have you seriously had to hang out in Frederick for some reason?

the caldera entrance to twin falls is something to behold, it's true

twin falls, in general, is a very, deeply, strange place

Never hung out in Frederick though I have hung out a little in the panhandle and "innocuous" wouldn't be the word I'd use to describe it.

(but isn't all of Maryland a panhandle, ami rite.)

there is a lot of panhandling going on, yes

Maryland really got screwed when they were handing out boundaries.

If this poll was strictly about boundaries, it'd get my vote.
