In 2010, Minnesota had 145 tornadoes, statewide. That number nearly equals the number of "Land of 10,000 Lakes" and Fargo references the average Minnesotan encounters from out-of-towners every year.
If you live in Mississippi, you're only going to live for 75 years, on average. There are 11 states in the Union in which residents are expected to live to at least 80 years old, a full five years more than Mississippians get. And they're five extra years NOT spent in Mississippi.

Thankfully, Montana re-instituted speed limits, and Americans stopped liking Aqua.
