We have heard it said many times and we are sure you have heard it too... North Dakota, there is nothing to see, "what is there?" We get it. It's the 47th state in terms of population. But that is part of what gives North Dakota its beauty. It's not the lack of population, but rather the hidden beauty in place of the lack of population. And now is the time to see what can put a smile on your face.

We all know how awesome and unique living in North Dakota is, but there are so many people outside of our State that would raise an eyebrow and have not a clue of what some of our rituals are. What I mean is, that there is no way that anyone can even begin to relate our ways of life. It's something we should for the most part be proud of - makes us unique, and we stand out alone, right?

TMZ took great joy in doing what they do best, blowing things way out of proportion - the rest of the country was convinced Minot had experienced some kind of monstrous riot. Watching several videos from those that were in the crowd, there were some that were out of control - throwing cups of beer onto the stage, foul language being shouted out everywhere, and emotions definitely were tested.
