Oregon Will Swallow the UK Whole
Despite Oregon having 50 million people less than the UK, Oregon is, according to the CIA World Fact Book, slightly larger than the UK. Neil, who lives in the UK, pointed this out to me, obviously doesn't know much about Oregon's geography (he is a Brit, after all, <joke>and nobody would ever call them educated </joke>). Like I commented on his entry, some places in Oregon are just just hard to live in -- the mountain areas, some of the desert areas East of Bend, <joke>and parts of LaPine</joke>.
Update: Since out of towners weren't really getting the jokes without the properly opening <joke> tag, I've gone ahead and put them in to be clear.
