12 Things Nebraskans Do Better Than Anyone Else
Besides being our favorite place ever, Nebraska also happens to have some of our favorite people ever. Although we have no (or very few, at best) scientific facts to back up these assertions, these are the things we think we Nebraskans do better than people in other states.
1. Inventing tasty foods.
The Rueben, butter brickle ice cream, Runzas, and Kool-Aid were all invented right here.
Cooking on our barbecues is not a purely summertime activity for us. This is a year-round skill that we've honed to perfection.
We're actually pretty amazing at having parties in parking lots, it turns out. We can find fun just about anywhere!
You'd be hard-pressed to find a weekend when there wasn't some kind of festival or party happening somewhere in the state. We LOVE getting together to celebrate anything and everything.
5. Sports enthusiasm
Whether we're rooting for the local high school kids, the Huskers, or a favorite pro team, we're unflinchingly loyal to our teams.
6. Raising cattle
We don't technically produce more beef than Texas, but we definitely do it better.
7. Growing corn...
It IS part of our state identity, after all.
8. ...and soybeans
They're our #2 crop, so yeah...we're pretty good at soybeaning.
This might sound a little weird, but we're the world's largest producer of and user of center pivot irrigation equipment. So we're clearly better at it than everyone else.
10. Storm watching
We're big fans of thunderstorms. And wow, do the storms get amazing here.
Art, history, natural history...we have all kinds of museums, and every one of them is totally fascinating.
12. State Pride
You'll never meet a group of nicer, friendlier people - or a group prouder of their home state.
There really is no place like Nebraska! What do you think we do better than anyone else?
