The "State" of Idaho: the Case for Open Debate

Hey, it makes about as much sense as the argument for the "lost constitutional amendment".
Current Mood: sillysilly
Current Music: news radio

"Isn't it strange that a state with such vast land resources has so few people?"

Not if you live in Western Australia :) It's about as big as your three biggest states but has less than two million people.

My brother used to make in jest similar (although less detailed) claims about Wyoming...

Was your brother a "Garfield and Friends" fan?

Actually, he was a Garfield fan when he was younger, though I wasn't aware there was any connection. Did this "Wyoming doesn't exist" argument come up on a "Garfield and Friends" episode? If so, that could very well be where he got it; I'd assumed he came up with it on his own, but I wouldn't be surprised to find out otherwise.

Yeah, there's a famous bit from "Garfield and Friends" where they say there's no such place as Wyoming. The story is when they were laying out states they had a blank spot left on the jig-saw puzzle, and Christopher Columbus's cat filled it in with "Wyoming"

At least it is not as bad as Iowa. Because, you know, Iowa is really just a giant government facility. With no real population.
