    I have to say Kansas, their city (Kansas City) isn't even in their state.

    I've gotta go with Indianna. I've been to Indianappolis and Fort Wayne, both of which suck as far as cities go. The rest of it is just corn, plus a Bible factory I once volunteered at. I was tempted to go with Ohio, but after realizing that I have very little experience with the northern half. Down here (by which I mean the specific region of Ohio where I've always lived), all we have are Casano's and the Air Force Museum. If you go a little bit further south, you'll find the Kentucky border. Now that I think about it, I should have voted Kentucky.

    Of the few on the list that I have been to, Kansas is by far the most boring.

    You don't have Casinos. Casinos are illegal in Ohio.

    KC straddles the state line and its actually a massive metropolis like coastal SoCal on a smaller scale with most of the recent growth on the Kansas side of the line, Overland Park, Olathe, etc.

    I'd think Delaware would at least have the Bay and Atlantic Ocean going for it

    Why is Delaware on there twice?

    I voted for Nebraska, though I could have gone with North Dakota just as easily.

    Delaware has DuPont and Joe Biden, the two largest explosives makers on the east coast.

    Yeah, but they're like, you know, boats. So what if they're permanently docked and there's a line painted on the floor marking where the river starts?

    Cincinnati is an awesome city. Favourite city I ever lived in. It's a huge shame about the population.

    Outside of Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio is pretty, well, dreadful. Okay, add Athens to the cool list.

    Ohio is most deserving of my vote, since it's the most boring place I've actually been to.

    Not that I was there for a long time, but it certainly felt like forever.

    Akron-Canton airport for a plane switch; I was there for a few hours, since for some bizarre reason I couldn't get a direct flight from Atlanta to Boston and I couldn't even get a plane that stopped at an airport in a city of any kind. They had two restaurants inside the secure area: one was closed, the other was an Arby's. Oh, and there was a
    snack bar," which was essentially a gas station store. They sold beer, but you couldn't leave the "snack bar" with it.

    Easily the most boring airport I've ever been to... but I don't really consider flight changes as "being" somewhere, so on a list of states I've been to, I don't include Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky, or Texas.

    Several years back, a lot of people complained that the Cross of Dixie was on the flag. So a new flag was chosen, which was probably made to be deliberately ugly so that the old one would come back. There was a statewide vote as to what the new flag would be, but the old "Cross of Dixie" flag wasn't on the ballot; it'd be rather embarrassing to have that win after the whole mess about changing the flag.

    So it got replaced... with the Stars and Bars, which would be far, far, far more embarrassing except Yankees don't generally know what it is.

    I dont think we are talking about the same thing.

    If you go down to the "previous flags" chapter Georgia has had 7 flags through its history, the years are beneath the flags.
