Ok.

So I'm learning American stuff at the mo. The States... where they are on the USA Map. Capitals of each State and each State Flag.

So I keep taking over threads with questions and comments about America. So I will just do it in this thread, so conversations are not interrupted.

Be warned... I'll probably diss some States... their flags... maybe even some of the names of State Capitals (I mean Annapolis!?!?! Seriously!?!?!? :lol: )

I'll ask stupid questions, how to pronounce certain words... but considering you dudes pronounce things in annoying ways... do you blame me!?!?! :roll:

First question:

What is with New Hampshire's motto?? "Live Free or Die"??? I mean... WOW!!! :shock:

Why are Louisiana so obsessed with fricken Pelicans?? HA! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Annapolis may be no Shitterton, but it's still a fine name. :smt102

New Hampshire's motto has long been misunderstood.
it was meant to be "LIVE free or die" as in musical concerts, stand-up comedy and such were dictated to be FREE (no charge) or they would kill the performers.

"Why are Louisianans so obsessed.." is what you should have said. Each state has its own demonym, or preferred word for people from that state.

In New Hampshire, pedestrians always had the right-of-way vs. a car, so as a walker you could just plunge into crosswalks and make the cars stop for you. Of course, you could also end up in the ICU. It went one way or the other.

You still got it wrong. There is no such thing as a "Louisianan". Instead, you have to break them up into their proper sub-demographics: cajuns, yats, and coonasses.

Do you guys not use contactless over there??

Like... when paying with things in a shop with your card. You just put your card next to a machine... and it pays it. No putting it IN to the machine or keying in any digits. Just hold it up. :smt102

Also... do you people not use vinegar over there for your chips (fries :roll: ) ?

You said it yourself, those dumbasses are all sub-Louisianans.

Of course that's still better than Mississippians, you just call them rednecks.

Also... does Michigan ever annoy you people!?!?

The way it's put up there in the corner... like it was a last minute addition to the Country.

Like... if it wasn't there... the shape of America would be better!?!? :smt102
