    Mangxema I gotta say when you are out running in 40 degree weather Farenhieght. Any lower than that and my ears start hurting after running long distances.

    I know and I use them but in the end after a long run they still kinda hurt mabye from the pressure or something.

    Hmmph and I hartily disagree you may have the best health but you don't have as many lakes. Wisconsin clearly wins.

    I dunno. A lot of Native Oregonians out here also talk like they are from the south. Makes no damn sense.:crazyeye:

    I don't put a lot of stock in this thread. Every race must have a winner and a loser; just because this or that state is in last place doesn't mean there's a problem. If the last-place finisher in a 1-mile sprint crossed the finish line in 4 minutes 3 seconds, he still did pretty damn good.

    No, I don't live in Minnesota. Yet, for some reason, you don't see me packing up my bags and moving there. My current digs ain't perfect, but I'm happy with 'em.

    I'm suspecting that that's not the case here.

    Your loss! :smug:

    A lot of traditional Southern food is deep fried and high in sodium, cholesterol, and fat. There's also the fact that the South has a lot of people with very low incomes who can't afford healthcare.

    As one who recently travelled to Minnesota, I can say that Minnesota has a higher percentage of cute chicks than a lot of other places I've been. I'm not sure if there's any correlation with overall health, but I just wanted to point that out.

    Hmm... well it seems to me that in most of americas case the last place person is closer to 4 min on the 100 meter sprint.

    Well I've been to the mall of america and I agree that there are hot girls there I can't tell if it is anymore than in Wisconsin.

    The main reason Minnesota is so healthy is because of the DAMN cold weather here, it kills off alot of the bugs, that the warm weather in the South cant, so each winter here is a blessing (even though i hate it), then we start all over again with the warm weather and the "BUGs" (from the South), LOL.
