Las Vegas, NV

We don't all live in hotels, the "Strip" is just one street in Las Vegas. Most of us live in very normal housing developments with kids who go to school, play sports etc.

Also, prostitution in NOT legal in Las Vegas.

Springfield, IL - Everyone in the small-town midwest is wholesome, we all live like Ward and June Clever, we are all god-fearing conservatives, drive John Deeres, go to every church picnic and PTA meeting, wear leisure suits, know all of our neighbors, and sit around waiting all year for the 4H fair to come back to town. We all drive big Buick sedans, buy all of our clothers at Sears, and eat at Denny's every Saturday night. For entertainment, we like to listen to our Wayne Newton's Greatest Hits album and watch videos (on our Beta player) of that 1995 family vacation we took to Omaha.

That's a misconception - Milwaukee is ranked one of the fittest cities.

Lubbock has two stereotypes that really get to me:
1) It is in the middle of the desert- Lubbock receives 20 of precipitation a year on average. While this is less than the eastern half of the US, it is more than most of the western US. Lubbock is not desert; it is prairie.
2) Its population consists of inbred, uneducated rednecks- This could not be farther from the truth. Lubbock is a college town that has one of the highest doctors per capita rates in the nation. It is diverse with 100 nations represented here.
