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.

i can't say i'm an AL expert but i'll cop to never finding much redeemable there in the way i could w/ GA, LA, TN and even godforsaken MS.

TN should just annex the north part that has muscle shoals and huntsville in it, which would basically resolve the question completely

well that's true everywhere, but at least as far as presidential elections go, which is usually what 'go blue' refers to, texas is def a swing state by 2020

Only way this happens, btw, is if Hillary runs as a Republican next time.

Alabama has some amazing thrift stores and Hank William's gravesite is a must see. from my experience Birmingham is a cool city. everywhere else is college football land).

imo it's not as picturesque as the surrounding states that get more into the lower Appalachians, just kind of flat country dotted with Flying Js and the fireworks superstores with the tall facades.

Florida as a collective whole is crap (though I will admit I've only lived in a very small radius of it) but there are really dope areas of FL.

so a belated "eff these poll options".

• Alabama has more freshwater biodiversity than any other state.

• Bear Bryant was born in Arkansas.

About as good as I'm going to get this morning complementing Alabama.

I have a shitload of nice stuff to say about very specific aspects of small parts of Alabama - I was born and raised there, duh - but I mean, no, Alabama is bad. It's the worst. It's a tight race with Mississippi sometimes but really, Alabama.

El Tomboto, Wednesday, 27 September 2017 14:45 (one month ago) Permalink

I wouldn't call it the worst state. It definitely has fewer cowbells than Mississippi, for example.

Pointing out that Tennessee should annex North Alabama made me think of this turn-of-the-century arena football team, based in Huntsville.
