In Which US State Should You Have Been Born?
by Brian Whitney

Whether you are the type of person who is still living in the state you were born in, or if you are the kind of person who moved away at an early age or even recently, it is the kind of thing that makes you wonder - were you supposed to be born where you were?

Say you are from Maine and you can deal with the winter just fine, but maybe you were supposed to be a surfer dude from California, instead of spending your winters shoveling and building snowmen.  Or what if you were born in New York, but you own a coon dog,  love country music and have a hankering for homemade biscuits all the time? Or were you born in Chicago, but for some reason you totally can't stand the Chicago Bears?  The whole thing is just so random! Here you are, thinking that you like living in Wisconsin just fine, but maybe you really were supposed to have been born in Texas! You do look pretty good in a cowboy hat, after all.
