      I really enjoyed the Smoky Mountains when we visited for a week. My family and I saw a freaking bear on two different occasions! Hiking in your old growth forests was a fantastic experience, as well as whitewater rafting the next day.

      Gatlinburg is a zoo of kitsch, its unreal.

      So I'd say TN is a great place to visit.

      Haha, I don't know what I'd do without my daily dose of "Florida Man" in the news. :p

      I got taken for such a ride a couple weeks ago. There is apparently a long-standing joke you guys pull on people that says the NZ government has banned gardening. Yes, personal vegetable gardens. They list good reasons such as preventing invasive species, protecting the native flora and supporting the vulnerable local agriculture industry. People show websites where they say they were raided - with pictures of plots being dug up and confiscated, and pictures of stealth tomato grow operations. Its very comprehensive.

      My mother is an avid gardener here in the States, so I sent her a long email saying how it was outrageous, how I'm so glad I'm allowed to grow some of my own food, what we take for granted, etc. I even said something like 'however there are actually some good reasons, the local ecosystem there evolved in isolation for millions of years, so they take a hard stance to prevent systemic collapse from invasive species and pathogens'. I rationalized it!

      So a few hours after I sent that email, my world crashed down on me and I had to send an embarrassing correction to her saying how badly I got my chain yanked - 'please disregard the first email, I've been had'. I was literally red in the face when I realized how bad I fell for it!

      You guys rock, don't ever change.

    In Quebec :

    - French language and culture;
    - Progressive (left politically) laws and economy, which leads to lower wealth gaps : less extreme poverty, and less extreme wealth;
    - Naturally beautiful women (as opposed to "gorgeous with make up, hideous without").

    South Carolina, here!
    1. Myrtle Beach and Charleston: Well-known, wonderful vacation spots on the beach, though as locals know, not as nice as the Hilton Head area.
    2. Racist, poverty-stricken white folks: A stereotype, but actually pretty true in the Lowcountry; the Midlands, and Upstate especially, are nothing like that, though.
    3. Being Southern: Bibles, grits, and sweet tea are symbols of our intense SC pride, though these things are less popular with the (traitorous) millennials in Charleston and Greenville.

    Pennsylvania is easy:

    The Constitutional Convention was held in Philadelphia, where the founding fathers of America drafted and ratified one of the most important documents in the history of mankind.

    We have the highest Amish population in the world. For those who don't know, they are a group of religious traditionalists who live without modern technology, most notably electricity. In some parts of Lancaster County, you'll see horses and buggies more often than cars. They are a friendly community who are self sufficient, and their products fetch a premium, especially Amish furniture. They don't pay taxes.

    Kennett Square is the mushroom capital of the world, producing over a million pounds of the edible fungus per week, exported all over the world. The vast majority of the labor force are migrant Hispanic workers who send their income home to support their families.

    Oh and cheesesteaks, Philly has cheesesteaks.

      Yeah, and don't call it a cheesesteak sandwich. I almost didn't survive that faux pas.

      Do you still hear as much chatter about skype now that Microsoft bought it and mostly ruined it? I guess the bragging rights of creating it in the first place is what matters.

      • Nutikaspu

        Yes.

        "Sky news here, we have a guest via skype..."

        "We created it!!!"
