I just though of a game.
It's really simple.
You take a city or state, and say a false(or I guess your opinion of false) stereotypical statement.

You then post up to 3 pictures contradicting the statement.

Remember, I know some butt head will come up here and try and test some of you.
I would like to remind everyone that everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I ask you not to be sarcastic here, and if you simply must.
Don't bash, and if you somehow do end up bashing...please do it lightly...
...LOL....
but in all seriousness, don't get smart with me...be reasonable is all I'm asking.
I'll go first:

Texas is flat.
