If you ever get curious about Kansas:

Welp there goes my afternoon.

Started out with alcohol laws, read a little about wheat, now checking out the dustbowl.

State song of kansas, found an interesting verse....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_on_the_Range

Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the deer and the antelope play,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day.

Where the air is so pure, the zephyrs so free,
The breezes so balmy and light,
That I would not exchange my home on the range
For all of the cities so bright.

Chorus

The red man* was pressed from this part of the West
He's likely no more to return,
To the banks of Red River where seldom if ever
Their flickering camp-fires burn.

Oh, fun.  Somebody should definitely build one of those.  They'd make a killing.

it's an unwritten rule of wiki threads that they eventually devolve into articles about ball crushing

Yes. Most of these are serial killers and/or ball crushers. Please feel free to post interesting music-related ones as well, or really any ones that don't give me terrifying nightmares.

Did you know that the lead singer of Blind Melon sung backup for G N' R's "Don't Cry"???  Weird musical mix that wouldn't seem to fit, but still... :love:

There are 10 types of people in this world.  Those who understand binary and those who don't.
