If yes, then "Kansas" should be pronounced Can -saw, right? I'm glad you see it my way. I will expect it to be pronounced as such from here on out.
Are you aware that the lower peninsula of Michigan looks like a mitten? And that if you're from that part of MI you usually show others where you're from by showing them the location on it?
This is where I spent a lot of my time while there (well, in that general area at least):
On that note, why does my hand look so weird? Why, has no one EVER mentioned how freakish my hands are before?!? Great, now I have to come to grips with having weird hands. ;)
Yesterday, Binderclips scared me as I was coming out of the bathroom. He waited patiently outside the door until I walked out it then jumped out and yelled "BOOOOO!" at me. At first I made a "Huuuuuuh" noise (think reverse sigh), then after a couple of seconds (well after his initial "BOOO!") I screamed. I feel as though I should have had a flag thrown (think football, American football penalties) on me for Delay of Game. Do you think I've been watching too much College football? Nahhh. GO MI STATE!! Woot Woot!! Ok, so clearly I have - but wouldn't it be good for us all to carry around flags and call penalties on people when we deem it necessary?
For example, someone flips you off while driving - you throw a flag and call Unsportstman-like conduct on them.
A guy hits on a girl, then realizes she's married. She throws a flag and calls Ineligible Receiver Down-field - since she's taken and he should not be hitting on her.
You're taking a class and the teacher fails you on the final, which results in you failing the class. You throw a flag and call Pass Interference.
While I do understand that calling penalties on people would result in no punishment for them at all - at least you would get a good laugh out of it, right?
