Here you just post something interesting about your state, country, or whatever. Something interesting here in Rhode Island, USA is that we have something called coffee milk. It's milk with the taste of coffee. To tell you the truth I've never had it. XD

I'll have to figure something out about Florida, cuz dat's where I'm at, but my grandmother's from New Hampshire, or something and they make their coffee and then put ice in it, it's called iced coffee......dat's kinda weird, I mean I've had it before, but it's kinda freaky....

Sweden is the country where Ikea is from.
We've got moose here too. A lot of Germans likes to come over here in Summertime, and steal road signs that are warning for them XD
In the north of Sweden you can see the aurora if the sky is clear...

And in a city that lies about 2 metrical miles away from me, is the world's first twisted skyscraper situated. You may've seen it on the Discovery Channel.

Let's see, well perhaps the fact that we can go to the beach no matter what time of the year it is, we have a small rain forest to the east side of the island, mountains with killer views in the center and to the south west a small desert and awesome caves to explore around in.

Hm . . . in a city of my state, it is illegal to bring a fish tank on a bus--the reason being that the sound of the water splashing might disturb the other passengers.

Well my state is really well known for it's peaches.
I also live in Georgia yet I don't like peaches that much (I will eat them in a peache pie but that's it XD). XD


Well Georiga was where the 1996 Olympic Games were held.
It's also the 4th oldest State in the US.
It also has the largest College in the world for the area of land around the College Campus.
It also has the busiest Airport in the world.
It's where Coca-Cola was first started.

I'll try to think of more things later. XD
