Rubbish.  I've been through all of the top 10 except MT and ND, and I can honestly say that the drivers in the South know how to get shiat moving.  Nothing more irritating than a left-lane driver, and I see that shiat more often than not up here in WI and Midwest in general.

This study is biased towards automobile deaths, DUIs, and citations.  All this proves is that the southern states are better at ticketing their shiatty drivers.  That is all.

Black people. The south gave you a culturally disctinct population of black people in America.

If you don't like the south, you're probably racist.

Pocket Ninja: kid_icarus: And sure 'nuff...once you put enough milk, sugar, salt, pepper, cheese, bacon, sausage chunks, eggs, and butter (tons of butter) grits are absolutely delicious.

Those things are even better if you remove the grits.


Granted. But then you have to list all those food items separately when people asked what you had for breakfast.

Come to New Haven CT, Yale is the only thing from keeping this place from being the "Chocolate City" of the north!


Referring to New Haven as a "chocolate city" kinda proves my point, considering it's what, 10% African American? I'd never refer to my city as a "chocolate city" even though it's 30% African American.

Kinda crazy that northerners think 10% black population is large enough to label it a chocolate city.

Nope. The first Hooded Order was founded in Tennessee, the second Hooded Order in Atlanta. The founding fathers were "six well educated confederate veterans". The KKK is solidly South.

Grits are an elaborate prank played on Northerners in retaliation for us losing the Civil War.  None of us actually eat that crap when you guys aren't looking.

Grits, done poorly and improperly seasoned or not seasoned at all, are awful. And that's probably how most people who don't like them have had them. Instant grits are appallingly bad. No true Southerner should eat them unless you are in the midst of a natural disaster. Grits should be stone ground, and cooked low and slow, stirred often. Seasoning is essential, so you have to use salt, and don't skimp on it. A bit of butter and a bit of black pepper go a long way. If cooked well, they have a smooth, almost polenta-like texture. I like to mix scrambled eggs into mine, but occasionally, I will stir in a bit of spicy head cheese. Yes, head cheese. I know add copious amounts of cheese to grits is all the rage in some restaurants, but I think this is a mistake. Good creamy grits can stand on their own.

Not if you cook yourself a country skillet breakfast, you don't. Which is another great southern innovation that I neglected to mention.
