    I know across America their are interesting places and unique things about those areas, heres a good place to let others know interesting things about where you come from that maybe no one knows.

    I come from Hawaii and we have a lot of things no where found on the planet, 1st one i can think of is the wettest place on earth, its found on Kauai on Mount Wai ale ale. Another i can think of is the highest mountain on earth Mauna Kea when measured from the sea floor, its higher then mount Everest.

    Tell me whats awesome about your state or country that makes you unique! i know their is a lot of history in a lot of the states out there and i would like to hear them:D

    VA...Commonwealth State and for that it SUCKS! Other than that there is alot of history here. Where I live, I can get to a beach in 5 minutes and the mountains in a few hours. I'm also surrounded by every military installation there is which I think makes for a good target.

    It is known that Blackbeard the pirates' head was steaked at the mouth of one of the rivers near my hood after he was captured and beheaded :eek:

    We have less rain in one year, than many states get in ONE rain storm.
    Our temps are recorded in a device that sits 6 feet off the ground, and IN THE SHADE. Think about that the next time you hear its "116* in Phoneix today....."
