This is What Totally ‘Sucks’ About Colorado
Well, I learned something new today: Colorado is terrifying. We love College Humor, and they recently revealed a reason why each of the fifty states... 'suck.' It's hard to think of one for our beautiful state, but the cost of living, cattle smell, Commerce City and too many cyclists didn't have anything to do with it.
According to College Humor, Colorado's 'sucky' thing is that we're home to ADX Florence, the nation's only 'supermax' correctional facility. Wait...we are??
'[The] only option for prisoners considered too dangerous for even maximum security prisons - such as Ted Kaczynski (the Unabomber), Robert Hanssen (Cold War double agent, secretly working with the Russians), Terry Nichols (co-conspirator in the Oklahoma City bombing), and Zacarias Moussaoui (senior Al-Qaeda member involved in the planning of the 9/11 attacks).' source: Collegehumor.com
How have I lived in Colorado for two decades, and have really only heard of the Colorado State Penitentiary in Canon City? Well, that's kind of scary, actually. Especially compared to Connecicut. You scroll down one state and it says 'Your State Song is Yankee Doodle.'
That is what sucks about Connecticut. We have terrorists and a Unabomber and the suckiest thing about them is that they have feather in their hat and call it 'macaroni.'
Good news is, we here in Northern Colorado are pretty much on the opposite side of the state from ADX. Not from Colorado? Take a look at the rest of the list from College Humor and find out why your home state sucks.
