    Minnesotans may tell you that Minnesota in Sioux means “10,000 lakes,” and they may attempt to prove it by pointing to the motto on their license plates. Minnesota in Sioux actually means “cloudy water,” an accurate description of the Minnesota River. Another popular etymology of a similar-sounding Indian name has Minnehaha meaning “laughing waters.” It doesn't; it means “waterfalls.” The misinterpretation began around 1849 when European settlers, not unreasonably, assumed that the Siouan –haha was an imitation of laughter just as in English, and hence that minnehaha meant “laughing waters.” The folk etymology caught on and wound up in 1855 as the name of the heroine in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem The Song of Hiawatha.

    ^ I missed that before - very funny nomad I did pay it though... I think

    How are all you Minnesotans dealing with the heat? Suffocating yet. I just came home from Bemiji and believe it or not it was 96 up there. I ran north to get cool and the heat followed me
