Enjoy!

Dark Lord Neo
Wow, sweet

Dark Jaguar
Ya know, they hold these concerts in Japan all the time.

Great Rumbler
They should hold some concerts like that in Oklahoma.

Geno
And Alabama!

Great Rumbler
Yeah! They should stop neglecting the lesser known, though amazingly cool, states like Oklahoma and Alabama!!

Geno
We should start a big campaign and march on the steps of the capital to raise awareness of states like Oklahoma and Alabama! Who's with us?!

Ryan
Not me *lives in the single most important state in America, historically*

Great Rumbler
Well, aren't you special?!

I'll have you know that Oklahoma has great historical importance!!

...

...

...

But only to Native Americans.

...

...

...

And probably not in a good way.

...

...

...

...

It's probably not really that important, either...

Geno
Hey, a lot of those Native Americans came from Alabama, and they all went to Oklahoma! We are united by the Trail of Tears!

...

I don't know what's so great about that, but... it's pretty cool, isn't it? Isn't it?!

Great Rumbler
Yeah it is!

...

...

...

I guess...

Dark Jaguar
It's the saddest thing ever... Yeah!

We didn't do much in the civil war (didn't even exist), nor the foundation of the land... nor did we offer anything other states didn't offer more of during WW1 or WW2, nor has a single president ever come from here... Um...

Well, one of the people from this state blew up one of our own buildings! That got us on the map for a bit...

Yeah, the indian thing is about it... Learning Oklahoma State History is certainly more likely than any other state history to make you cynical about state pride in any way shape or form. Natives, we'll let you live on this land so long as the grass is green and so on and so forth. Yeah we said that about the last state, and normally yes that would mean something.... now get in there *jams natives into state with long pole*

(Note, we gave them this land only because, at the time, we thought it was worthless wasteland not fit for any kind of life, there's your ecological history :D.)

*Natives work and toil and through many hard years turn Oklahoma into a grand green land, with schools and everything, because they have our technology at this point.*

America: Wow, nice place ya got there can I.... oooh wow, ya know what? We made a mistake, you only get THIS half here. We get West Oklahoma. My bad.

Native: But, but... we not done with this half yet and we work many moons and so on.
Native2: *slap* Sorry, he no good with grammar yet. We thought we'd keep it until the grass died and the water dried up! That's what you said!

America: Look look, you still have it, just only that half... ...Look, the thing is, this half, the part we want is... haunted!

Natives: Haunted?

America: Yes, yes it is. By the ghost of Dracula.... Frankenstein... Dracenstein... Yeah, Dracenstein, and he craves electric blood, which you guys have, because you aren't QUITE as human as us and...... look just get out because I told you to do it!

Natives: ....okay.... But only because we're pretty sure you're legit about this whole haunting thing... *magically teleports to other side of state with Bewitched sound effect*

America: Alright! Woo! Paaaartaaay! *wrecks entire western half of Oklahoma* ...Look this is good, we can still fix this... *lake burns down* Alright this frickin' sucks... *knocks on giant border door, they exist...*

Natives: *yawn* Yeah, what do you want... is what I would be saying, but you see you've kept us up for a good few years now with all that noise and we are very... VERY tired... I think all our decendants will now speak in a haulted tired sounding accent from this day forward because of you...

America: Look, it's okay, it wasn't us, we swear, it was... Texas... Um... anyway, can we crash over here? Our half is getting sprayed for bugs you see and...

Natives: No... Oh no... Bugs? You are spraying poison across an entire state for bugs? Think of the wildlife!

America: No, we don't think about that, because they don't, because they are DEAD. Yeah, funny thing, we got hungry, so we ate them all. What, ya wanna fight about it, because if you did, I would SO totally declare war on you, and not a court in the world would convict me!

Natives: ...I am getting so... so very angry right now... Are you telling me you ate EVERY SINGLE ANIMAL in that WHOLE area? I mean, that's millions upon millions of living things...

Americans: Well, a few hundred...

Natives: A few... hundred?

Americans: Well what did ya EXPECT?! They didn't HAVE anything to eat, not unless you want them to eat sand, huh, do ya, because that's ALL they got!

Natives: S...sand?

Americans: Yes! Duh! I mean, grass and trees are fine and all, but ya know, every golf course has that. We're Americans though, we're thinkers, innovaters. We thought "Hey, what if we had the world's BIGGEST golf course, and it was like... a huge sand trap?". Yes, we all agreed it wouldn't be playable, but it would be a STATEMENT, a political statement, satire of sorts, and if you looked at it a while and got it, I mean REALLY got into it...

Natives: You turned several thousand acres of good fertile land into DIRT? I'LL KILL you! I'll do it with my own bare hands! I swear... *smokes um peace pipe* Ugh, I am so frickin' upset with you right now... I gotta lay down...

Americans: EXACTLY! And you can do it, right over there! Because you know, staying over here, we don't really want you uh, you know, cramping up our style... Now get out.

Natives: You have... I mean, where to start... I really, really want to hurt you... You just don't even know... We made this... this land here...

Americans: Yes, you did, you did your job well, the one we set you out to do. You were good indians. Now, don't worry, we'll keep up our end of the bargain and let you stay on little camp grounds we have for you, wouldn't that be nice?

Natives: You barge into our land, kill us, force us into land you abandoned, later take some of it back, and now you want the rest, and to live on camps, and what, we get NOTHING? You ruined the land we made too! What is up with that?! I ask you!

Americans: Hey! Humans OWN the planet, we can do whatever we want... it's Biblical!

Natives: I READ that bible, I mean most of us HAD to, only a few by choice, and I would say God isn't exactly keen on ruining the land you know!

Americans: Ugh, you keep flapping your lips, listen, I don't care. Look, you see how I'm listening to you? I'm doing you a FAVOR here, and you can't even say thank you?

Natives: Alright THAT'S IT! *gets shoved into reservations*

Americans: *ruin the OTHER part of Oklahoma* Yeesh, well how was <i>I</i> supposed to know that burning the grass would make the grass not be there? *abandon land for a good long while during horrible dust bowl*

Natives: ....huh... *casts magic spells and things go back to normal*

Americans: Wow, nature just fixes itself eh? We'll need to remember that. Alright everyone back in the pool!

....Good... this is just great... Well then, what next... Hmm, the Americans don't seem to be very responsible, and don't really consider the future... and sorta leave major important things to fate... *snap* I'll sell them volcano insurance!

------------------------

DJ: And that's how the west was won!

Kid: But I don't get it, an indian never sold me insurance!

Kid B: Yeah, and wouldn't it have been funnier if that last thing lead to, you know, the whole native american casino thing?

DJ: NO! Now SHUT UP and go to bed! I swear kidnapping kids and selling them at road shows gets harder every year... OH NO!

*robots and lasers suddenly destroy everything*

Geno
We kicked some Yankee ass in the Civil War!

...

...

Okay, so they kicked our asses in the end, but we still kicked their asses several times in the war!

Did you know that my hometown of Montgomery was the first capital of the Confederacy? Rock on!

...

...

Right, so... anyway... did you know that my grandpa once threatened to whup the tar out of me for bad-mouthing the Confederacy?

Dark Jaguar
Wow, you must live in the REAL south if you actually know people who think the confederacy shouldn't be bad mouthed. Okay, tell your grandpa I said the confederacy deserved everything it got for going traitor against the nation. I mean... wow... How can even the oldest people alive today actually see the confed in a positive light?

Great Rumbler
Oklahoma's not really part of the "real" South. For that you've got to go to Mississipi or Kentucky. They have tractor pulls down there for God's sake! Tractor pulls!! And moonshine! Don't deny it, Geno! I've seen you out there making it at your still! And don't think just because the Prohibition is over that I won't totally turn you in to the Bureau of Alcohol, Drugs, and Firearms! Because if you anger me I will do it! And don't think for one second that just because we're both from the South that I won't turn you in to the nearest cop I see...unless he's a Yankee and if that's the case I'll help you beat him up with a giant Confederate flag tatooed to my chest while I'm whistling Dixie and spouting racial slurs against people that aren't White, Christian males...FROM THE SOUTH!!! WOOOOOOOOOYAAAAAAAAAH!!!

When I go downtown, an undertaking of about 20 minutes, I can see where the Confederate Government operated. If I go south to Petersburg, I can see the most impressive Civil War battlefield this side of Gettysburg. If I go to the docks I can see old slave pens.

:D

I wish we had some stuff like that around here...

EdenMaster
Pfft. History. The closest thing we have to history where I live is that the Brig Niagara is docked here. If you don't know who Oliver Hazzard Perry was, then the ship probably means diddly to you :). How about the phrase "Don't Give Up the Ship"? That's from the Niagara.

Pretty boring history, huh?

Dark Jaguar
We have a couple of forts and a submarine, but they are a couple hour's drive. How OKLAHOMA got ahold of a submarine is beyond me though... Those things are big, on land...

Great Rumbler
There's a big Indian casino near where I live. It's huge. Not really much history there, though.

Most of the area I live in's history is based on tornadoes. Like "A long time ago there used to be a big town here that was on the train line, but it got destroyed by a big tornado". Stuff like that.

Dark Jaguar
So... what, any verification or is that just stuff you hear from old people walking by?

Great Rumbler
No, there's lots of verifitcation of the town being there. It had several thousand people during the early 1900's, but after a big tornado that destroyed a lot of buildinds and the closing of the rail line it went way downhill. Now the town that's there only has about 100 people.

There isn't much history in Alberta...except for in Leduc where oil was struck many years ago and quickly made Alberta the richest province in Canada. That's about it.

OB1
Not far from where I live is where they filmed The Shining...

Great Rumbler
Wow! That is uncredible!
