Love the police chief's comment. It was "very abnormal" cause it's a small town. 4000 people. When you get up to 20,000 or 30,000, that shiat happens every week or so. KnowwhatImean?

LOL! One of the best lines of the series, so far. I wonder if Lorne Malvo and Anton Chigurh (No Country for Old Men) go to the same barber.

FTAIt's "very abnormal," Hurley said.

 Gee, I should certainly hope so. I'd hate to think of this as a regular occurrence.

Also, this is the ad that was running when I opened the article:

Something tells me getting a greeting card is not enough to make up for finding body parts in a suitcase.

/Now that you mention it, there should be a beer and cheese rule. I don't know what it would be, but I'd endorse it wholeheartedly.

The Beer and Cheese Rule:

 1.) Beer and Cheese may be consumed either together or separate, but only when one of two conditions are achieved;
     a.) It is acceptable to consume beer prior to consuming cheese.
     b.) It is acceptable to consume cheese prior to consuming beer.
     c.) Bonus points are awarded if either beer or cheese are consumed in the presence of Brett Favre.

This is crazy, guys.  I live about 2 miles from where the suitcases were found.  Everyone is talking about this at work.

"Highway workers cutting grass outside Lake Geneva, Wis.  this week came across two suitcases in tall weeds in a ditch, moved them to the side of the road, and kept on working.

About an hour or so later, someone called police to complain about the suitcases, still sitting along North Como Road
just east of County Road H.  When officers arrived around 3 p.m. Thursday, they made a gruesome discovery: A body in each suitcase, according to the Town of Geneva Police Department." from the article in the  Chicago Tribune

Private_Citizen: It's 8 miles across the border from Illinois (and as close to Chicago as it is to Milwaukee). But, I'm sure the mob would never drop bodies across state lines to confuse investigators.


It's not like there's a history of mob activity up here or anything.

seansimonson: lostcat: chitownmike: Uh, Subbs, you do know that Milwaukee is nowhere near western Minnesota, right

/probably not

I was assuming Subby was making a Fargo joke, but that makes even less sense since Fargo is 500 miles from Wisconsin, and a Wisconsin accent is nothing like a ND accent.

Couldn't agree more... People think we all talk like da yoopers here... I'd be more worried about breeding serial killers than a farked up Fargo accent...


well, all people from Wisconsin sound like the Disney character "Goofy" to me. So there ya go.

I was just checking to see the accents 500 miles from where I live.

South -- Key West (only 400 something but then you run into an ocean). Accent change? Tourist. Maybe a bit more Gay.

North -- Atlanta (478 miles) Much more southern than here in St. Petersburg but who has a southern accent in Atlanta anymore?

(North) West -- Mobile, AL (480 miles) Much more southern than Atlanta. Hmm. But they talk like that in Polk County 40 miles away too.

East -- Atlantic Ocean.

Results: Inconclusive but certainly not without precedent.


The only discernible accent in St. Pete is the New York accent that so many people bring with them when they move down here.

The things you can do with a wood chipper never cease to amaze me.

farkingismybusiness: I just want to go on record and say that Fargo is an awesome farking show. I can't believe my friends don't watch it.


I have only just finished episode three and I have to agree. Screw that Game of Thrones shiat which I have not seen and am kind of jealous of the people who get HBO, um, of.

Gonz: I like this 500 mile thing.

To the East: New Orleans. Nobody sounds like those people, unfair comparison.
To the West: El Paso. There's a lot of overlap there.
To the North: Oklahoma City. There's a difference in Okie twang and Texas twang.
To the South: Tampico, Mexico. Are we coming from the north or south side of San Antonio? It's either very different, or very similar.


There's a New York sub-accent to two that's tough to distinguish from a New Orleans accent. Usually it's clear after a few minutes, since a proper Yat can't go more than a few sentences without saying "where yat?"

The western half of the state (actually once you get about 50 miles north and west of Madison on 94) can sound mighty similar; what with all the Scandinavians running around.  And where I grew up (Juneau County) the accent was like a bad cross between Fargo and Kentucky.
