I'm sure this thread will be full of people chiming in about their respective states, so I'll start:

The criteria used for Virginia is unmitigated bullsh*t.  Probably for Afghanistan too.

I would not hit the horn of Africa, Djibouti is too small.

Anticipating something bad, I still wasn't ready for North Korea.  COME ON.  South Carolina:
1. Has very beautiful parts, especially the coastal areas and upstate mountains
2. Has residents that are anything but starving
3. People actually like coming here both to visit and live

However, there is no question that our state is corrupt and the government seems to like keeping people stupid.

With Pennsylvania, they missed an obvious connection between the Turkmenistani "Door to Hell" and Centralia, PA.

Given how different North and South Florida are, with Central Florida serving as a DMZ, I'd say we have more in common with the Koreas.

I would just like to commend whoever put this together for actually including semi-coherent explanations for each one.

Kansas gets Russia because a few old coots don't like gay people? Gay guys may be annoying with the lisping and whatnot; but, lesbians are alright. Especially blonde lesbians; with big boobs.

I'm in Oklahoma, which that blog equates to Thailand.

I've been to Thailand, and although both Oklahoma and Thailand may incarcerate women at higher than average rates the comparison stops there.  The women in Thailand are a lot better looking, have their teeth, and rarely, if ever, tip the scales over 105lbs.

Georgia linked with Italy because of peaches? Georgia produces less peaches than SC, Alabama and California.

There is one county in South Carolina produces more peaches than the entire state of Georgia.

California poops on everyone in terms of total output.


Wisconsin tied with England because of Cheese?

England makes some nice cheeses but wouldn't France, Italy or Switzerland be a more accurate match?

I find that last one hard to believe.  South Carolina has very little snow, so how would its citizens ever get any coffee to drink?  And, based on #2, SC would be terrible for bird-watchers.

No matter which country Massachusetts hooked up with, Massachusetts would just wind up taking the country for a ride, drive the car off a pier then walk away as the country drowned in the water.

Michigan is with Panama because they both have a city named Colon?  That's pretty damn weak, even by blog standards.  Obviously the most logical choice would be Japan because cars, or some Pacific island nation because water.  But Panama?  Come on...

bluenote13: I stopped reading at Alabama=Finland since most people in Alabama couldn't find Finland on a map of Finland.


You're being unfair.  I personally believe that Alabama Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some, uh, people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and, I believe that they should, our education over here in the Alabama should help the Alabama, uh, or, uh, should help South Africa and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future.

Winning what, exactly?

I'm glad the first comparison was retarded so I knew right away not to waste any more time.

I have to disagree.  When I saw it, my first thought was "Alex, what is: overrun with government contractors?".

I do agree that many of the commonality points are tenuous at best, but at least we're finding out a lot of bad qualities of states and countries.

AbiNormal: It doesn't surprise me that NoDaks drink more than Czech's, there isn't anything else to do.


Fun fact: people from the Czech Republic love country music.  You haven't lived until you've heard a cover of a Kenny Rogers song performed in Czech --- Ideally while inside a bar full of drunken Czechs who can laugh at your amazement and befuddlement.

I'm really not sure whether that makes the Czech Republic more or less like North Dakota, however.

It does. Nodaks love to have people from warm states come up in the winter and experience the cold flat hell that is the Great Plains and laugh at them.

That was dumb. Michigan is like Panama because we both have a city named Colon? Really?! That's IT?!?!

Get it right! We're most like Canada. Hockey. Tim Horton's. Northern accents. Snow! Poutine (well, French fries and gravy, anyway). Moose.

Panama. Phooey.

Panama for Michigan would have made enough sense for me to go along with if they'd done a Panama Canal/Soo Locks important lock systems for shipping comparison, but yeah, cities with the same name is just stupid.  You could pick at least a half dozen different countries based on that criteria.
