Columbus, MS

Columbus, MS birthplace of Tennessee Williams & current Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier.

Neatly nestled in between Mississippi State, Alabama, Ole Miss & Southern Miss campuses.

It is a retirement town w/ many Antebellum homes from 1800s and also has an Air Force Base used for training new pilots, so we get a new group of bros every 2 years..

There isn't much here for me anymore. Will be moving in less than a year!

Linwood, MN. A township of about 1000 people, about 30-40 miles from Minneapolis. It has 2 gas stations, one of which I worked at called Carlisle's. Other than that, it has like 4 lakes, a community center, and a few parks. I grew up living on a lake, so we had jet skis, and boats, and would fish all the time.

Oh, I almost forgot about the wonderful trailer park, and hair salon.

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in the playground is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

just a couple of years ago, not only did I live in MS, the state w/ the highest teen pregnancy rate, but i also lived in the county that had the highest rate in the state & the school with the highest teen pregnancy rate in the county is 6 miles away from where i grew up.

Don't live there anymore but I grew up in Green Bay, WI



One of the smallest towns with a pro football team, the Packers.

The actual Green Bay, which is actually the color Green :D

They have an awesome zoo there with a huge observation tower.

Has a big wildlife sanctuary as well, it's where I brought a dying bird from my yard and that they brought back to health.

And fat people who like to eat a lot of cheese, beer and watch a lot of football :D

Spent the most time in Converse, TX (basically San Antonio).

Converse is really only known for the Judson High School football team, won like 5 state championships. Here is a fun fact about Judson that can be related to something a little more mainstream. The
movie Friday Night Lights starring Billy Bob Thorton based around the Odessa Permian Panthers state championship run in 1988 is actually not accurate to truth at all. While Permian did play Dallas Carter in the playoff, it was not actually for the state championship, it was the semifinals. Dallas Carter did win and went on to beat Judson in the championship, however DC ha ineligible players and when this was discovered the championship was handed to Judson, if you check record books, the score is recorded as Judson-1 DC-0.

Other than that, San Antonio:

Last stand at the Alamo
Spurs
Randolph and Lackland Air Force bases
Fort Sam Houston and Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC, main medical facility for all military branches.)

can't think of anything else off the top of my head.
