It's posts like this that make me so happy that the great North Dakotan diaspora has not impacted Montana. Despite the state's close proximity to Montana, the ND refugees continue to move due east to Minnesota and Wisconsin which are not only downhill but offer natural migratory paths to greater fast food and all-you- can- eat dining opportunities.
Most researchers believe that the relatively close diaspora settlement area (DSA) in both Minnesota and Western Wisconsin is linked to the high levels of obesity and diabetes found in the population. One researcher put it bluntly, "Fatty ain't going far in the snow. Especially when attempting to attach snow shoes and mukluks to missing diabetic limbs." Enjoy the Summit.
