Buzzfeed calls Michigan "Undeniably the greatest state."


Ahmed Ali Akbar made of list of "37 facts that prove Michigan is undeniably the greatest state" in a Buzzfeed post that went live yesterday.

In it he names both Paradise and Hell, MI, local beer, superman ice cream, various musical stars, Taylor Lautner, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Eastern Market, Beyonce's being a U of M fan, and paczki, among many other reasons why the state is the best.

Some of the 37 are lame (i.e. Taylor Lautner), but we're pretty big fans of superman ice cream and paczki.

What do you think this list is missing?
