There are a lot of very nice people in Iowa and, the whole Midwest for that matter. But that doesn't mean we can't still be agitated by certain comments, perceptions, and, of course, stereotypes.

For many who live outside of Iowa, it can be somewhat easy to make generalizations. We're generally portrayed as farmers and all drive tractors in movies and TV shows.

With the knowledge of being a lifelong Midwesterner, and married to a native Iowan, I've come up with a list of the top 5 ways you can tick off a native Iowan. Things someone could say, or imply, to drive anyone from the Hawkeye State who's full of Iowa pride into an (Iowa nice-ish) rage.

I fell into a rabbit hole when I found out that Roseanne Barr almost had a mansion in Iowa. After seeing the current state of the property on Facebook, I was amazed that such an extravagant project could be so quickly overtaken by nature. Only two hours away from Waterloo, this abandoned field could have hosted some of the coolest and elite Hollywood parties in the Midwest. The current photos were taken by Gable Fry on a recent trip he took.
