    Re: 20 Words That Have A Different Meaning in the Midwest

    Read the comments...I think it's cute Missourians think they're midwesterners too.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I think being a slave state back in the day automatically disqualifies them. Now we know why the SEC took them...

    Re: 20 Words That Have A Different Meaning in the Midwest

    I thought all the bitchy comments from/about Missouri were amusing in their own (not complimentary) way. Never heard of 'padiddle.' I used to say 'pop' until I moved to CA and got made fun of for it. It's been 'soda' ever since.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    Re: 20 Words That Have A Different Meaning in the Midwest

    How far does the midwest go?

    Ohio on the east?
    Nebraska on the west?
    Canada on the north?
    Missouri on the south?

    East doesn't want Ohio and neither does the midwest. But here is a fun fact. Columbus, Ohio is more east than Atlanta. Seriously.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    Oh, I definitely know what a padiddle is, and the "dashboard double-tap to windshield back to dashboard" hand movement.
