Infobahn: Subby fail. Elvis impersonator trifecta in play.
Mawson of the Antarctic: I was in Des Moines for a job interview (which I didn't get) and the tour guide around town was telling me about the local craft breweries, music venues, fine sining, and sports teams. He made it sound unique. Motherfarker you just described 95% of this country. I'm from the Midwest, I know what the Midwest got. I cannot imagine spending my life in Des Moines, bacon or no. Bacon's good, but not that good.
demonocracy21: You cannot imagine living in Des Moines because a tour guide portrayed common urban amenities as unique?
Omahawg: the worst part about des moines is not its suburban blandness...it's how residents perceive themselves as iowa's only sophisticated urbanites. this ignores the gritty, sleazy charm of the cities along both the missouri and mississippi rivers as well as the artisanal meth produced in ottumwa and ft. dodge trailer parks. let alone the smell of wet cornflakes that permeates cedar rapids and patchouli drenched People's Republic of Johnson County./counciltucky for the win, dawg
