110. Ve inwented tobacco.
:7 (Well, okay, maybe not exactly, but still...)

Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah Valley, lots of pretty rivers, some decent beaches, lots of nice hiking trails; Thomas Jefferson, his alma mater, and the safety school he later founded (kidding, kidding! :hide: ), a bunch of other presidents and important historical figures...in short, my state is just awesome. :headbang:
