    After all, we're just dumb ass pig farmer hicks in Ioway who think that Erie, Pennservania is the biggest city in the U.S.

    Thanks for learnin' this dumb, Iowa farm boy.

    The metro areas around Des Moines and Cedar Rapids probably at least double the population of those you listed. While they are "small" cities; they are still cities. 80% of the population of Iowa live in cities.

    Wow! You somehow miss the word "almost" in my original post; don't address the issue of your statement of the relative sizes of St. Paul and Des Moines being incorrect; and make up some stupid statement about yourself (which I certainly didn't say) that looks more true than it may actually be based on the content of your post in an attempt to be clever and/or to deflect attention from the facts. It's a winner.

    The whole thing started with you "learnin'" people from Minnesota about how Iowa is more urban than Minnesota, which is a silly statement when you look at actual facts. You can understand how they'd be confused as to how a state with a population just over 3 million is so much more urban than a state with a population of just over 5.3 million -especially when Minnesota has two cities with populations well in excess of the largest city in Iowa.

    Why can't you just admit you were wrong instead?

    Wiltz - EVERY "metro area population" is greater than the population of the core city.

    I have lived in both Des Moines and Minneapolis for at least more than 4 years at a time. There is really not that much difference in the people. Even most of the people in Minneapolis are transplants from smaller towns and grew up in a rural environment. The largest difference you will see though is if you go downtown Minneapolis and spend 6 dollars a beer you will experience a much higher rate of douchebaggery than you will in downtown des moines. So, in reference to Steve. If you have ever lived in Minneapolis/St Paul before you would know that a lot of the population is from rural communities from Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin as much of the population of Wisconsin West of Eau Claire come to Minneapolis looking for work. Iowa people may not be more urban than people in Minnesota, but they certainly arent any less either. Grandparents have lived in the Rochester, MN area for my entire life as well which is another city center and possibly the only other one Minnesota has. They are by no stretch of the imagination urban there either. My guess is that the Minnesota and Iowa wrestlers get their "attitude" from their coaches. And also from the hardwork that they have had to go through growing up just living in the environment they are in.

    I understand that Steve. Just pointing out the cities of Des Moines and Cedar Rapids only make up about 40-50% of the metro population

    My 2 older brothers used to fashion make shift bridles out of twine string from the baler and we'd ride the holsteins... well, mainly me. They seemed to think it was in all of our best interest for the smallest kid to do the riding. I've learned a number of things from these experiences. Don't trust older brothers who have any kind of a sense of humor, twine is not as strong as leather, a full size cow is a lot bigger than a 120 lb kid, cows have a giant very hard bony spine and surprisingly bony upper ribs, when they step on you it hurts like bejeezus, and mainly...

    Don't ride cows. Just don't.
