thats the only one I have a hard time with. the FIRST road paved was in DETROIT!!!

well, if thats the case i don't think that they have ever repaved portions of it either!
I think that makes perfect sence about the first road, after all we are the motor city correct? I mean horses didn't need pavement. I am sure however that cars traveled easier on it.

I do agree however that they since haven't repaved.

I don't believe that one. Like there are NO natural lakes in Ohio. I'd like proof of that.
Do you really want proof that Ohio is, well how should I put this

So Alaska is some kind of tropical paradise? Go sleep with your sled dog.

Most of the coast isn't straight, it curves in and out, and there are islands, the big penninsula, etc.
