Yes, just like Utah has some of that scrub the residents like to think are trees. Also, the pitiful little gutter run-off they call "rivers," which is laughable, since none of them are any bigger than Bull Run. There's probably more water flowing through the Potomac in a year than every bit of running water in Utah, including the faucets, sees in 3 years.

but no, I was actually referring to hills. Real hills.. The east is very hilly and uneven, even when you're not near the mountains. The valleys in Utah probably provide much more flat terrain than anywhere in the east. You don't get straight roads in the east, because the terrain doesn't allow it, unlike in Utah, where you can have roads that run straight as an arrow for miles and miles and miles, and incidentally, are boring as hell to drive.

No, not hills. Nor are they mountains. They are valley's. I'm sure none of you have ever been around Little Valley or places such as that. The outer parts of the Buffalo plains are really cool. Eden is just full of hills. In Evans we have a nice sized gorge. We call it the 18 Mile Creek. And Lake Erie, oh what a joy. As long as you're not near the parts of the lake that are next to factories. This northern country, St. Lawarence County, isn't all that impressive though. Sure there are huge jagged rocks that outcrop themselves on the highway, and meadows that have giant rocks coming out of the tops, and some elk farms. But it's meh sometimes.

Anything else?

I've been through upstate New York, Gemm. And uh... it's hard to have valleys without hills or mountains.

oh butterscotch. there's valley's everywhere, but I've never seen a mountain. Unless you think valley's are mountains.

And I'd like to say that you easterners don't count. :P I'm a northern easterner, so I win. javascript:tongue()

Really? Cause if so, I'd like to know so I can print it out and tack it up onto my fridge here at school.

Darn Easteners! Probably never had to shoot someone for water rights. The wusses. Trees make people soft.

You know what makes people soft? Moisturizer! And you know what Utah has? Lots of Moisturizer! So huzzah!

Gemm, i'll say this. When you come to the UK, i'm going to knock you out, kill you, stuff you, and put you on my wall. It would be like having some rare and bizarre creature as a pet, only a whole lot safer.

And eh. Try living in yorkshire. The whole damn thing is a series of hills going up, and down, up, and down. It's like being on a damn seesaw. But you freakish americans simply HAVE to have the most 'XTREME' natural stuff. Not content with winds, you have hurricans. Not content with fireworks, you have to have fires that burn an area the size of Dorset. Not content with rain, you have floods. (Although we have them too, but they only affect southern english, who i laugh at. Haha!) So i guess you have more hills and stuff.

Silly bastards.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

No, Utah does not have a lot of moisturizer. NuSkin and other skin cares companies that are located here, refuse to sell their products here because they might tick off the locals. And we've all seen what happened to Frankenstien when he tried to sell his brand of moisterizers to the locals.

Utah has lots of salt and children.

Both of which mean the yanks who lived there back in the 18th century days never had to worry what to eat in the winter months. Have a baby, kill it, salt it, and it will store for positively months.

Remember people, mormons are more suspiciously moralised than they look.

uh... there WERE no Mormons in the 18th century. The LDS church was organized in 1830, which is in the 19th century.

Watch Aliens. Virtually every line the transport pilot says come from that movie, and no, that's not one of them.
