Obviously, you've never been to Minnesota.

Think of North Korea without the ambiance.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Wow!
I didn’t think it was that bad.
What part are you from?

I always went to the Border area foe canoeing.
Rocky and watery.
Just like the post cards.

Then I took a recent road trip returning from Seattle on I90.
Right down the MN/IA state line.
A farmers dream land.
Black dirt that is table top flat.

I have a friend from Duluth. I keep asking her why she stays there. She keeps telling me she doesn't know.

One night she emailed to ask if I thought her car would be okay because her anti-freeze was rated at -55 F and the wind-chill was expected to be -58 that night.

That's all I ever needed to know.....and Duluth isn't even the coldest part of the state.

Even then I have to put on a sweater.

I did my 55 years in NY. Don't miss it a bit.

Determining age at death is standard forensic procedure, for example, number of teeth that have erupted, whether certain bones have 'fused', tooth wear.
More detailed info can be obtained by sectioning teeth or bone.
Welcome to the club BTW.

This is what I'm asking about, thanks. So do they keep records of this anywhere? Like for different regions they keep them in different places or something?
