• 12 Reasons Why Minnesota Is The Worst Place to Live

    "Land of 10,000 lakes and 100,000,000 mosquitos."

    May 11th, 1858 will forever go down as one of the worst days in the
    history of the entire universe. On that probably dreary and cold Tuesday, Minnesota was named the 32nd state. The literal second it happened
    Minnesota became the very worst state. Here are 12 reasons why it is just
    so terrible:

    1. The Lakes-

    I'm going to start off by saying that there are just way too many of those things. They are everywhere, and it is super inconvenient. The environment created by the almost 22,000 lake basins in the state is so gross and
    totally not photogenic.

    2. The food-


    There is nowhere to eat in the Twin Cities. St. Paul has some of the most disgusting food there could ever be... The Nook, Gopher Bar, Mickeys
    Diner, and Red Cow. The food there is definitely not good I promise. Minneapolis might be worse though; Glam Doll Donuts take the cake on this
    one. Pun intended. Who wants donuts accessorized with things like
    caramelized bacon, cookie dough, peanut butter, and chocolate fudge
    brownie icing? I know I dont.

    3. The hockey-


    Hockey is probably the worst sport ever, so it makes sense that Minnesota
    is the state of it. The high school hockey is terrible. The boy's state tournament or as locals call it, The Tourney was shown in 37 countries
    this past season. The attendance for the games is usually well over the attendance for a typical game for every NHL team. Those stats are just
    gross, the tourney is terrible, the hockey is terrible, none of its fun.

    4. Tater-tot hotdish-



    So gross that it gets its own category. First of all, its called
    casserole, so that's pretty terrible. Tater-tots by themselves are plenty
    good there is no reason to add all of the gross things like meat, cheese,
    and vegetables... probably a terrible meal for a cold winter day.

    5. The lingo-


    Weve already discussed Hotdish and The Tourney but everything else
    the people from Minnesota say is pretty wonked up too. They say Duck Duck
    Grey Duck its obviously Duck Duck Goose are there even grey ducks?
    Some of the lingo is Norwegian... Like Uff-da to express relief and
    Dupa to talk about someones rear end. The people of Minnesota dont
    even refer to soft drinks correctly its not called pop.


    6. "Minnesota Nice"-


    Minnesota has branded itself on being nice to people, how terrible? Nice
    people are the worst people. Who would ever even think of holding open a
    door for someone who is still in the parking lot other than a Minnesotan?
    These people are so nice to each other it is disgusting. It is also super annoying and inconvenient to have to say thank you all the time.

    7. Crocs-


    Crocs are the only thing on this list that I'm being 100% truthful about.
    These little rubber Devils even have their own store at the Mall of
    America, and it smells so weird in there. Although they are a little bit
    comfy and super convenient, they are so ugly. So many Minnesotans are
    guilty of putting the strap back and going into adventure mode, and
    it's just a little bit horrible.

    8. The North Shore-


    So ugly. The North Shore is made up by cities like Duluth, Grand Marais, Lutsen, and Two Harbors. There is absolutely nothing to do up there, well besides all of the state parks, scenic railroads, cruises, nature centers, shopping areas, breweries, wineries, alpine slides, gondolas, and canopy
    tours.

    9. The Iron Range-


    Also super, not cute, would make for a terrible Instagram. Nothing
    actually cool or historical up there. Places like the United States Hockey
    Hall of Fame, the Minnesota Museum of Mining, the Minnesota Discovery
    Center, the International Wolf Center, and Bob Dylan's childhood home are horrible places to visit; you won't learn anything or have any fun.

    10. The History-


    Nothing is interesting about the history of Minnesota, if you visit the Minnesota History Center you will find out that there is nothing to learn about. Their exhibit Minnesota's Greatest Generation is filled with a
    1930s movie theater and soda pop fountain; not cool at all. It also has a
    1955 Ford sedan that was produced at the Ford plant in St. Paul.. super
    boring!

    11. The shopping-


    If you live in Minnesota and need to do some shopping, well you better
    pull out your credit card and computer because you're gonna have to do it online. There is nowhere to shop. The Mall of America is way too small,
    and only has 520 stores and 50 restaurantswhat a joke. The MOA is pretty
    much the only mall in the twin cities, forget about Southdale, Rosedale, Maplewood, Woodbury Lakes, Northtown, Calhoun Square, and the Galleria in Edina.

    12. The Fair-


    The Minnesota State Fair is the largest State Fair in the United States by average daily attendance; The highest daily attendance was recorded on September 3rd, 2016.. 260,374 people went through the gates of the "Great Minnesota Get Together" that day. Terrible, there is no reason that many
    people should be in one place at one time. What makes this whole situation
    even worse is that everyone goes for the food. The annual staples for a
    lot of folks are the cheese curds, pronto pups, roasted corn, and whatever
    else they can fry and put on a stick. This year's new fair foods are
    enough to make you lose your lunch, they actually plan on serving things
    like sweet corn blueberry eclairs, duck bacon wontons, and deep fried
    avocado to paying customers. None of that sounds even a little bit good.

    The whole Minnesota thing was actually mildly amusing. I wonder who wrote it? My first guess would be a Wisconsinite but too many of the things are too similar in Wisconsin.

    I don't turn everything into politics but it clearly affects
    the quality of life in American cities. And, generally the
    places with the highest violence, crime, homeless populations
    and well-fare dependents are in cities run by Democrats.
    If you doubt that check the stats for Chicago, Baltimore,
    New York, Philadelphia etc., all Democtat run cities

    Then start mobilizing a militia under the Second Amendment and start liquidating said cities, starting with either the inner cities or the cities' government.

    And I hope, at that point, you then understand that you gut the American infrastructure. So you better, then, be ready to get local and tribal good and quick.

    Will Ohio state be using the very rarely used safety punt trick gadget play this year?

    That is what I call it but my sister told me what it is really called.

    Here is her explanation

    Yes, it's called a 2 point conversion.
    When you score a touchdown, you get 6 points. Then 99.9% of the time you go for the
    Extra point kick which is a nearly sure thing.
    Alternately, if you feel like it, you can turn down the extra point kick try, and go for a 2pt conversion
    instead.
    So after you get the TD you all line up again at the 20 yd line, but instead of kicking,
    you throw or run the ball.
    And if somebody gets it into the endzone you get 2 points.

    What it amounts to is 2 consecutive touchdowns.
    First regular one is 6 points. Second one is 2 points.
    Most people don't use it except towards the end of a game if they need just 2 more points
    to secure a tie or win before time runs out.

    Using it in mid game is almost unheard of because getting one sure point by kick is much easier
    than getting another touchdown for only 2 points. Risk reward.

    I am still going To call it the safety punt trick gadget play

    Why do you have to turn everything into politics?
    Without it, he would have no identity.

    I mean seriously, a guy who proclaims that he's a massive Ohio State fan passes on the opportunity to slam another Big Ten state and team with this crap?
    Will Ohio state be using the very rarely used safety punt trick gadget play this year?

    That is what I call it but my sister told me what it is really called.

    Here is her explanation

    Yes, it's called a 2 point conversion.
    When you score a touchdown, you get 6 points. Then 99.9% of the time you go for the
    Extra point kick which is a nearly sure thing.
    Alternately, if you feel like it, you can turn down the extra point kick try, and go for a 2pt conversion
    instead.
    So after you get the TD you all line up again at the 20 yd line, but instead of kicking,
    you throw or run the ball.
    And if somebody gets it into the endzone you get 2 points.

    What it amounts to is 2 consecutive touchdowns.
    First regular one is 6 points. Second one is 2 points.
    Most people don't use it except towards the end of a game if they need just 2 more points
    to secure a tie or win before time runs out.

    Using it in mid game is almost unheard of because getting one sure point by kick is much easier
    than getting another touchdown for only 2 points. Risk reward.

    I am still going To call it the safety punt trick gadget play
