Yeah, guessing the immediate cutoff from IA to NE is the ridiculous NE property taxes. Same with TX.
Does Iowa just have ridiculously low property taxes? Because they have higher values compared to all their neighbors

Probably better fit in maps thread but putting here. Land value.

What's going on with Iowa, and to a lesser extent the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles?
Iowa - Corn
Texas - Oil

You telling me corn stops growing across those imaginary lines that make Iowa's north and south borders?? Also Texas looks cheaper. Texas might be high property taxes?

I've been cheering my ass off for Sunderland for years, don't care about taking a knee. That match was awesome. FWIW, I also like Wycombe, I became aware of them in the playoffs two years ago, gonna miss Akinfenwa, he's a stud.
I noticed when he came on. Unreal

The PSG player that refused to play wearing the rainbow colors is a bum, but also the Qataris putting rainbows on the team jerseys underscores the absurdity of a lot of these shows of “support.”

I’m no Desantis but I do think in some ways we are worse off with this new coroporate politics.
Agreed. Kouyate from Palace called the PSG guy a "real man" on IG but also wore rainbow laces this season.

Also Zaha from Palace never kneels because he thinks it's meaningless bullshit but I don't think that's a little different than the all-white Sunderland side not taking a knee

I tuned in to the League 1 playoff expecting to lightly cheer for Sunderland based on the Netflix show but then they didn't take a knee and Wycombe is sponsored by a record label and is called "the chairboys" so eff Sunderland

Nothing better than a good coleslaw. Nothing worse than a bad one.

yeah you can have great potato salad too. I love a good vinegar-based potato salad.

I'll bring some potato salad

it's wild how labor intensive a traditional midwestern potato salad is

Completely unrelated but there is a bison herd in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park

I’ll bring a noodle casserole & a yellow cake with chocolate frosting.

Are we talking macaroni here?

Spracne, when I was young my grandma told me that spaghetti noodles grow in shallow ocean water and to this day it's very difficult for me to disregard that. So I get what you're going through.

my mom went to a catholic school and had a nun that if she drank milk with popcorn it would kill her and it at least stuck with her until she was a mother.

OT but mennonites in Meade, KS call shorts "short pants" and it's funny to me
I love that and pull it out from time to time

none of those dishes are even covered [redacted].

how do you think they were transported einstein

where was the cliff on the side of a lake?
also where are there still bison? (bizon?)

when I was a kid it was big news when Turner bought a ranch and started raising bison in Barber County

I find myself saying something like "Hup" instead of "Ope" but it feels the same

we need some mains (meats), folks

I want cherry pie

I will be bringing funeral potatoes and barbecue bacon green bean casserole

what is everyone else bringing

I have been made fun of for saying "covered dish dinner" instead of "potluck"

what is that and why do you say it? seems like it takes forever to say

oh sorry did I make you late to go build a cement wall????

anyway this is a covered dish dinner:

I also like to fill up on meatballs at these! Fun fact: in California spam masubi and lumpia is at every covered dish dinner

Lol ok construction nerd

I have been made fun of for saying "covered dish dinner" instead of "potluck"

I feel enraged by both of those terms, mostly because I know I'll probably hate every dish there except the party potatoes.
I will fill up on barely warm fried chicken

Are party potatoes the same thing as funeral potatoes?

I do this all the time and I understand/commiserate with people who are driven nuts by it

(unlike pop)

I don't think we can stop saying this.  What do people not from the Midwest say?  That seems more weird.
Nothing or "excuse me"?

mich, do people on the coasts regularly use "bucks" to describe US currency? how tf did that cornball word come to be the default?
I have never noticed this as unique to anywhere I've lived but it's an interesting question so I googled its origin
