One Odd Fact about the STATE you live in
« on: August 01, 2007, 07:34:58 PM »
I thought it might be fun to play a game where you name one odd TRUE fact about the (state/province/whatever Europeans have) that you live in.

South Carolina:
It was the first state to secede from the Union to found the Confederate States of America (from the original 13 states)..

Wisconsin voted McCarthy back in AFTER he was more or less revealed to be a drunken skumbag. He spent the rest of his term a lame duck, ostracised and restricted from all congressional groups and organizations.
