Everyone likes to hate on Kansas because it's the state in the middle.

They hate us because we never have to care about hurricanes.

I always think it is weird when people reference The Wizard of Oz, living in Kansas I seriously never think about that movie

I would think people would be thinking about wheat (or farms in general), abortions, or tornadoes when they think about Kansas. If they thought about us at all.
In my heart I'm with you

Any particular reason the two of you dislike my State?

Too open for you, perhaps?


I'm talking about western/central Kansas. Gives me the creeps.

Kansas deserves to be given to terrorists as a gift, that's how bad it sucks. One out of every ten towns has anywhere worthwhile to stop while traveling. Most of the towns have 1 gas station selling shit sandwiches but that's it. It's so desolate and unpleasant.

The fact that nearly every town holds about 78 people. It's just eerie. There are barely any people in the streets. It's like what I would imagine being in a horror movie would feel like. A couple is traveling through a mostly vacant town (aka western Kansas) but needs gas. So they go and get gas at the only sign of civilization in the town. Then they get fucking murdered. That's what it's like.

The people seem nice enough at gas stations and such, but everything's so old fashioned and empty in a creepy way. It's not desolate in the badass New Mexico way.

Quote by Oblivion_Rps
I think it's to do with preserving the culture and the history. If you don't have that passion and love about it, you won't necessarily take to the culture.


I think the idea that a certain culture is only within a nation's imaginary border is quite silly. I really think we let these imaginary borders dictate too much as well.

Nah, your thinking of Iowa. I mean, wtf happens in Iowa? Nothing.

As a Slipknot fan, I have to give Iowa a little credit. The worst would be Wyoming though.

"The cheapest form of pride however is national pride. For it betrays in the one thus afflicted the lack of individual qualities of which he could be proud, while he would not otherwise reach for what he shares with so many millions. He who possesses significant personal merits will rather recognise the defects of his own nation, as he has them constantly before his eyes, most clearly. But that poor beggar who has nothing in the world of which he can be proud, latches onto the last means of being proud, the nation to which he belongs to. Thus he recovers and is now in gratitude ready to defend with hands and feet all errors and follies which are its own." - Arthur Schopenhauer

my family's from syria, and i'm english born. i hate both countries. i love some of the people in those countries, but syria's political system is despicable and england has too many faults for me to say 'i love you unconditionally', which would sorta make me ignorant. i'm a 2-3/10.

Is that the prime minister of Australia? What is he doing away from his inter-tube on the pond? Patriotism is about as useful as ribbed condoms, folks.

Australia's prime minister is a woman. Though admittedly her policy choices aren't too dissimilar to those which a donkey might make.

I live in America, and I think America f*cking sucks. However, any kind of nationalism is a cancer to human civil society.


EDIT: By America, I mean the government. I don't really like some aspects of the culture, but I do enjoy a lot of it.
