    In looking at it again, I have a question about Bourbon. How would you describe the difference between Bourbon, Irish Whisky, and Scotch?
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    If you've consumed all three (not at the same time) at some point in your life, and come away with a reaction other than ewww or yuck, that's an easy answer.

    I've been watching the original run of the X-Files the last 2 weeks or so. I'm not scared of many things, but for whatever reason, aliens (the gray skinny ones with big heads) freak me out BAD. I was watching an episode last night with many aliens in it and was not doing too well with it. At some point a train must have pulled up on the tracks way back behind my house. I didn't notice it till right around the time I went to bed. The idle sound of the engine was messing with me and I was pretty paranoid about it. Damn train. They never idle there either.

    I have and I find all three quite enjoyable.

    Relatively thin crust, chewy texture, yet slightly charred, usually a "white" pizza (no tomato sauce), no melted cheese over the entire thing, cooked in very hot coal fired oven. Similar to a "pizza margherita" that you can find at a lot of places but often with clams and oregano as the main toppings.

    That does not sound appealing.

    Oh they are great. There are a couple places near me that sell similar pizzas and now I want one for lunch.

    I think a lot of people confuse Kansas City with Kansas, but we like to take whatever good association we can. Actual food of Kansas is more like steak.

    Should we place a difference between Oregon beer and Wisconsin beer?

    Coney dogs more 'signature' than pasties? Coney dogs are more of a southern Mich. thing (particularly Detroit) whereas pasties are more of a northern Mich thing. Guess it shouldn't be surprising the UP gets overlooked and outvoted once again.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    This is why the UP should be recognized as it's own state for things.

    I'm pretty meh on fried chicken for Georgia, but I can't think of something else right now - maybe that'll change after I decide what to have for lunch.

    Yeah, what is that? I've never heard of it.

    I just noticed FL's signature food is "Groper Sandwiches" What the hell is that?

    Going by all the roadside stands I recall seeing on trips through Georgia, my vote would have been for boiled peanuts.

    Montana does have the Testicle Festival http://www.vice.com/read/having-a-ba...e-festival-999

    But other than ranchers collecting them in a bucket during calfing, it is not like Montanans are scarfing these thing down. They are only rarely served in restaurants. They are not sold in stores.

    And Mississippi and crawfish? I lived in the state for a number of years and don't think I ever even saw crawfish served or available. Louisiana is crawfish. More so than gumbo, which is served in Mississippi.

    NY is regional:

    Buffalo -- wings
    Utica -- Utica greens (escarole, parm, pepperchinis, bread crumbs, pan fried -- one of my favorites)
    Chicken riggies (rigatoni with a mix of white and red sauce -- super yum!)
    Central NY -- Half moon cookies (called black and whites elsewhere)
    Western NY -- beef on wek (beef. on a roll. big grains of salt.)
    NYC -- bagels, yes

    All of NYS -- NY-style pizza
    How do I know you are who you think you are?

    Stupid loose meat sandwich - - a sloppy joe for those too lazy, cheap or dumb to make a real one.

    In Indiana, the tenderloin would be fried, the size of a hubcap and between two really inadequate buns. For Kentucky, food-wise, I would say a hot brown. For Mississippi, I agree with Otterpop about crawfish. They tend to be a bit seasonal, and that's it. Better choices would be red beans and rice or gumbo.

    Bourbon is food?

    People here in SW PA consider a Primanti sandwich to be the state food. A sandwich of thick-sliced Italian bread with meat, fries and coleslaw with a vinaigrette dressing.
