Realize I was being a smart***, I didn't really take offense to your comment... Just was really really confused by it. To each his own I guess.

Also I wouldn't base how exciting a state is on an amusement park. Anyway they are building one along I-70 near Wheeling. But as far as amusement parks is concerned. Busch Gardens has NOTHING compared to Cedar Point in Sanduski, OH.
Some people would care less if they offend another but I will honestly admit that I'm glad that you didn't take offense to my opinion. I realize you were being a smart*** and I smiled throughout the whole thing because of it. You truly must understand I try to find beauty in everything that I see. Although, according to my taste it just seems like West Virginia would not be my cup of tea. I'd like to admit that the "bridge" picture was gorgeous though. Nice scenery. The other two pictures were not all that significant to me unfortuntely. I'm sure it's obvious I've never been to WV but compared to the other states in the union I had to admit WV was in my bottom 10 most interesting. Trust me, I've done all the research you can think of about every single state so I'm knowledgeable. Also, thank you for the insight about Cedar Point. :-) I have heard a lot about it. I hope that your opinion proves to be true to mine about Busch Gardens and Cedar Point when I visit. Thank you again. Take Care.

The most boring states are Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas.
That's not really true, Ohio is considered mostly plains but the eastern and southern parts are slightly affected by the Appalachian Mountains so it's somewhat hilly in those areas.

The most boring state I've ever been to is Oregon. It's pretty much forest the length of the state going up I-5, plus I'm a city guy and there is no city in the state worth while IMO. Others might have a different opinion.

You just won't let up on Oregon, will you?

There is no such thing as the most boring state. There is such a thing as a boring individual visiting a state.

Quick question - did I create this thread? No

Would you like me to lie about which state it is I find boring? Would that make you feel better?

Pathetic!

Do not call me pathetic.

Have you been to every state?
Have you been to every place in Oregon?
And since you haven't, then why post a negative comment at all.

I find the thread negative and stupid. No I don't want you to lie. I do however think you should stop acting like a butt head. You could have very easily answered my comment without adding "pathetic".

Is it possible that you are so insecure?

OMG!! Oregon is in NO way the most boring state!! And i speak from experience (i've been to every state). If you want a city, go to beautiful Portland, and YES, that IS a true`city, and I know you say you dislike it

I have travelled the US extensively (by car). I enjoyed the small roads of Oregon, it's mountains, seashore, forests and Portland very much.

I'll reiterate, there is not a boring state, only boring people. Some are even insecure.

GreenOR,
As a Portland native I am ashamed and embarrassed that you even live in our great state. I am glad however you are not in Portland, but actually in Corvallis because obnoxious people like you are not wanted.

Monumental1 proved you wrong on a laughable claim that Portland is more of a Tech power than Seattle and you got defensive. (I should know our tech industry is bad Iíve been out of work for two years)

You have defaced our townís good reputation and embarrassed yourself beyond belief. I almost cringed at your outrageous post. I love Portland. I ask you to have the decency and respect to represent our town and state better, or please donít even claim it.

Also: The drive up I-5 in Oregon is a bit boring, but Portland is not. IMHO
