Did you know that Ireland is not a part of Great Britain? It isn’t. Well, Northern Ireland is but Ireland is not—though it is part of the United Kingdom. Oh, you didn’t know there were two Irelands? Then you need to watch this entertaining video which explains all that and much, much more. Trust us it is a lot more entertaining than one would think.
Here is a graphic of every state and what they each ranked dead last in. It is always great to see what other people and states completely suck at. Yayyyy again for my awesome home state of New Jersey ranking dead last in taxes. Yea everyone else complaining about taxes, we have the most expensive taxes…. FOR EVERYTHING. But on the flip side I’d rather have expensive taxes then to be in a gonorrhea infested colony, I’m looking at you Louisiana.
Usually I look at these things and get pissed off that my state, New Jersey, got hosed with “What we’re famous for”, but I am pleasantly comfortable with the choice of the Italian sub as our flagship food item. The only other food item that you could make a valid argument for New Jersey is taylor ham, which is only available in the garden state, but that is just nit picking, check out what your state is known for by clicking on the image twice to enlarge as always.
I think we can all agree that most sequels suck, actually every sequel blows except for Rocky 4, Back to the Future 2, Terminator 2, Mighty Ducks 2 and ummm yea that’s it. So the cinephiles over at BoxOfficeQuant created an interesting chart which compares the Rotten Tomatoes ratings and domestic box office gross for films and their sequels. Domestic gross is represented by bubble size. (Click image for billboard sized enlargement)
So what does your state do best? Well being from New Jersey I thought for sure my state would easily be the best at having a small amount of douche bags gel their hair, fist pump, and act like jackasses, in turn making our whole state an on going joke. But apparently we are the best at something far more boring and ridiculous, like being the best state to go solar. Wow really that is the best thing we are good at, we need a hobby or something geez. Check out the best every state has to offer below.(As always click the image to enlarge to read it clearly.)

Provided by the awesome research of Stefanie Gray, in this song, Ludacris brags about the area codes where he knows women, whom he refers to as ‘hoes’,” says Ms Gray, who plotted out all the area codes mentioned in this song on a map of the United States. She arrived at some interesting conclusions as to the locations of this rapper’s preferred female companionship:
* “Ludacris heavily favors the East Coast to the West, save for Seattle, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Las Vegas.”
* “Ludacris travels frequently along the Boswash corridor.”
* “There is a ‘ho belt‘ phenomenon nearly synonymous with the ‘Bible Belt’.”
* “Ludacris has hoes in the entire state of Maryland.”
* “Ludacris has a disproportionate ho-zone in rural Nebraska. He might favor white women as much as he does black women, or perhaps, girls who farm.”
* “Ludacris’s ideal ‘ho-highway’ would be I-95.”
* “Ludacris has hoes in the Midway and Wake Islands. Only scientists are allowed to inhabit the Midway Islands, and only military personnel may inhabit the Wake Islands. Draw your own conclusion.”
