Sgygus: Wyoming, home of *real* fireworks and grocery stores that sell ammo.


Don't forget drive up liquor stores. Why you can even buy kegs at the drive up and they will bring it to your car and give you complimentary ice. What farker can't get behind that?

Pershing123: There is only one Walmart in Wyoming?


This is not a bad thing.

And yet Alabama and Georgia probably have thousands.  Coincidence?

Makes sense.  I mean, if you were an escalator, would you live in Wyoming?

But by all means, I hope people keep thinking it's a shiatty place, because third to Montana and Colorado, it's the only place I'd rather live.

My sentiments, exactly!  I lived in Wyoming from 2005-12, and now live in Montana.  I'm with you, there's no other place I'd want to live either.

Great pics.

Confabulat: Pershing123: There is only one Walmart in Wyoming?

have you ever been to that vast wasteland? I'm sure they flock for miles around with their horses and buggies. It's seriously a very odd place. You don't see many people defending Wyoming in this thread do you? That's cause all 4 Farkers in the entire state are either asleep or drunk.


Actually, they're fishing. Which can easily be done when asleep or drunk.

The great state of Wyoming has only two sets of escalators


TWO SETS... THAT SAYS TWO SETS SUBBY!!!  THAT'S 4 FARKING ESCALATORS!!!!

sammyk: What a Wyoming escalator might look like.

/rode that last week
//simply stunning
//Had a bacon peanut butter waffle sandwich at 10450 feet.


Wife thought a loop hike starting at the top there would be a good idea a few years ago.  Forgot that altitude lost must be regained---unless you want to walk the whole way down.  Amazing how hot and dry it can be at that altitude on a sunny summer day.

Hey now.

What's nice is, when traveling to where the flatlanders live, we from the mountains and high plains can drink like gods.

I've been to Wyoming a couple of times(my brother lived there for a while).....it's pretty but doesn't have much else going for it.

/also the only time I've seen it snow in May was in Laramie

Another escalator in Wyoming.



He's in for a rude awakening in about 15 feet.

Having grown up in cheyenne, I am pretty sure there was an escalator, but I can't remember for sure where. Maybe j.c. penneys or fowlers.
 
2013-07-20 10:49:24 AM
Well, technically, they have two escalators and two de-escalators.,,

And Dick Cheney.

100 Watt Walrus: WY has more Yellowstones, Tetons and Devil's Towers than anywhere else in the world. What would it need with escalators?

Not to mention hidden gems. My dad has a ranch in WY, and within walking distance are two sets of native rock-face petroglyphs, and this (click to embiggen).

/couldn't possibly live there myself, but I love to visit


Sweetwater County, here, sir. And you know what I love about Wyoming? Nobody wants to move here. That's what I love about Wyoming.

If I could find a job there that pays well enough to justify the move, I'd be there in a heartbeat*.

*Okay, I'd make the decision to move there pretty quickly, but it'd take many heartbeats.  Then the actual move would likely take thousands of heartbeats since I'd have to sell a house, have the movers pack things up, and move over - all while finding a new place in Wyoming, etc.

Well, I've finally found something nice to say about internet trolls. In threads like this, they induce a few people to bring out some awesome pictures of places I might otherwise never see.

Actually, there's no defense because they want all the idiots to stay out. They saw Colorado get Californicated and said, "Don't want".

There are gas stations that sell ammo once you get outside of the 100K+ cities in the South, and they are nowheres near as remote as the West.

the quickie mart by my house sells ammo and archery supplies. Go near the Colorado border and find the fireworks. Drive-through liquor stores.

Also cold and wind. Lots of cold and wind.

I am in Wyoming. I can confirm that there are no escalators anywhere near me. And I work for the gubmint. If we don't have an escalator, nobody does.
 
2013-07-20 02:00:29 PM
Two escalators, both in banks. Hopefully, when the Night of the Whorehopper comes, heads will bounce down them, a la Apocalypto.

When I was a child, in Cheyenne, the only 2 addresses in the state were in Jackson (at the Mangy Moose, reportedly, but I find that information of dubious reliability) and at the JC Pennys in Cheyenne. My aunt would visit my family from Phoenix and take us to said JCP, where we would spend hours riding up the escalator, then walking down the stairs, to do it all over again.

viscountalpha: Wyoming state slogan is "why would anyone live here?!"


I refer you to the picture in my previous original contribution to this thread (can't say Boobies or it will get Boobies'd).

Personally, I wouldn't want to live there. I'm a city guy. I like to be able to walk to 2 grocery stores, a movie theater, a big lake and a park, a public rose garden, a public botanical garden, over 100 restaurants, and the subway.

But the appeal of my dad's 108 acres, 10 miles outside of a town of 4000 people, is not lost on me.

//curiously, the governor is a (D) who beat the Palin-endorsed (R) for the office in 2010

Stupid autocorrect. I'm guessing you're on an Android device (the iOS dictionary seems less likely to make that particular mistake), and possibly using a third-party keyboard with its own autocorrect dictionary. That kind of thing happened to me all the time with TouchPal, until my tablet died a couple weeks ago.

Last governor was a D. Current governor is an R.

Yellowstone, the Teton Range, Jackson Lake, the Snake River, Grand Teton National Park, the Gros Ventres, rafting, biking, fishing, the best skiing, hunting, etc. Those are just a few reasons to come to the northwest corner of a vast state. There's a reason why we get over 3 million visitors per year. Then everyone goes away and we get to enjoy the things that you spend your two weeks of vacation doing, everyday.

Most people think that the state consists of what you can see from I-80, which is fine by us.

Not one, not two, not three, but four. Four escalators.

We are subbies, not merchants.

But you can still count! Look at my fingers... um... you can still count, right?
