Alabama is another one of those places that just defy easy classification.

On one hand, Huntsville is the home of the motherfuckin' NASA's Marshall Spaceflight Center, where, quite simply, some of the smartest people in the world work on cutting edge spacey sciency shit.

And the smart people aren't just imported from elsewhere. I mean, Destin, of Smarter Every Day is a local Alabaman, raised in Alabama, and still lives and works there - in science and engineering - and has been featured by President Barack Obama as a champion for science education in America!

But then ... well, yeah. There's everyone else. Including my relatives, who are just dumb as shit, gullible, and believe every word out of Alex Jones' mouth.

Fuck Alabama... except Huntsville... I guess...
