Lawrence is a Fraud!

So, the 200 foot "hill" they have in Lawrence, Kansas, is some kinda optical delusion, I tell ya. And it ain't like ah'm the only-est one tellin' ya, neither. Take it from the US Geological Survey shows that Kansas is flatter than a pancake. The research was originally published in the Annals of Improbable Research (Warning: Both higher mathematics and lasers were used in this research!).

This is math that Samuel Clements would surely have approved of.

In fact, i think it's quite a lot higher than 200 ft: The scooter slows to a crawl on the way up the steepest of the hills, and bicyclists get off and walk their bikes. Feh on the USGS.

Re: they LIE
A few months in Flatland, and you lose all perspective. Trust me, it's not THAT big a hill. A dimple on the pancake that is Kansas.

Flat can be good. Really.

Besides, you can't argue with the science of the Journal of Improbable Research. It's peer-reviewed. :)
