It's happening. I've finally registered for an account at too many places to remember which ones I have an account and which ones I don't. :? :|

Wow I love some of the conversations that take place a work. This was three different people.

"Why would you want to live in Kansas"
"I would want to kill myself if I lived there"
"No NO I just couldn't live there."

As you can tell people in my town hate Kansas.

I guess Kansans are one of those group of people who drive too slowly in Colorado? Or maybe Kansas is just too flat for Colorado's liking. <shrug>

Kansas: helped start the Civil War (the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 let new territories decide on slavery by popular sovereignty, basically giving slavery the opportunity to expand northwards, and there was so much fighting between pro-slavery and anti-slavery factions in Kansas (because each side wanted Kansas to enter the Union as a state that reflected their beliefs towards slavery) that the state became known as "Bleeding Kansas"). <- Courtesy of 8th grade American Cultures. Also, the origin of Brown v. Board of Education, which declared segregation in schools unconstitutional and started the Civil Rights movement.

See, Kansas isn't that boring.
