Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

You totally just ruined any chance of a Mankato meet.


if assumptions could fly, airliners.net would be the world's busiest airport

Over here people can sue for anything, and they sometimes win.

There was a radio station in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was running a "Ski Tulsa" campaign back in the early 1980's. It was obviously meant to be a joke about Oklahoma's very mild winters. I remember seeing bumper stickers on cars with "Ski Tulsa".

Some people showed up from out of state to do some skiing. They got pissed because they didn't realize it was a joke. The media made a big deal about it. The radio people got in a lot of trouble.

Even with the internet nowadays, some people are still excruciatingly stupid.

Sad and at the same time hilarious to see just how gullible some people can be. I mean, why would anyone base an entire vacation on the internet equivalent of a blurred outdated photocopied A4-sized info flyer, which is what that website would be if it weren't pardoy?!  rotfl

I saw that website a long time ago and thought it was hilarious. Having grown up in North Mankato and still working there currently, I got a kick out of the site. I thought this story was hilarious too. The whole point of the webpage was to show how you can't trust internet sources all the time. That whole thing just proved it. If I were looking into spending money to go somewhere I'd look at a few different sources rather than stick to just one sole source of information. Especially on the internet.

Wow! It never gets below 70 in winter in Mankato because of their fissure in the earth's crust! I think I should go there instead of Florida this December!  scratchchin

I got a kick out of the "Standard Disclaimer!" I think someone will be upset enough to hire a lawyer. But, some people are stupid and will believe anything! I have never been to Mankato, but I have been to Fargo and that is good enough for me!
