I'm not so sure of Illinois' chances of winning, but we do have 8 nuclear power plants and a lot of food growing plus Lake Michigan. Maybe we'd form a treaty with Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan and make one giant state.

Either Kentucky, Detroit, or Southside Chicago would win, although I doubt anyone would want to touch Gary.

Virginia.

I dunno why, just thought I would mention it because no one else did.

(Though VA does have a sizable military presence, the Pentagon and loads of defense contractors)
I bet our extremely lax gun laws could be useful..just remember, the minimum legal age to use a gun unsupervised in VA is 12 years old...

I know you're joking around, but I wonder where that idea comes from?

Most of the gay guys I've known were actually a bit on the pudgy side. No more so than any other kinds of guys I suppose, but no less so either. Harvey Fierstein, T. R. Knight, Nathan Lane, and Bruce Villanche are all a bit on the doughey side. There are plenty of thin and athletic gay guys, but I don't know if it's that much more common than fit straight guys.

This is 2009, not 1909. Who heats their home with coal anymore?

If most NYers (all of NY State) had the same mentality of many NYCers I know it would be over for every other state lol.

Assign 10 NYers (strapped of course) to a block in another state and make them surrender one by one and make them work for us, take over a city in a day and the whole state by the end of the week, just repeat the process 48 more times after that .

After New York puts all 50 states back in check Washington DC would become the capital again, we'll rebuild whatever is damaged and the US will rise again .
