States merged by force would keep all their senators. Anyone noticed how Dakota and Korea are the same shape?

I get the feeling that the poll and title were not written by the OP, considering the very different syntax with the poll and title being written by a native English-speaker and the OP (and his/her replies) being writing by someone clearly not even fluent in English.

Vandalism by the mods?

That was the result of a thread merger. The poll from the second thread was written by my other account, while the OP of first thread was written by someone else.
