    Minnesota? No thanks.

    12. There’s only two seasons: winter and summer...

    13. …the summer only lasts, like, a month. Tops.

    15. Seriously, those small town in Minnesota? There’s nothing interesting to see.

    16. No beautiful landmarks. Nothing.

    17. And it’s all, like, farmers, so definitely don’t expect much of a nightlife while you’re there.
