    ...is gaining weight. Whether it's juicin' or swallowing fistfulls of HGH, 'getting big' is enormous fun for Lincolnites, old and new! The Over 30 Crowd prefer to bulk up by dining out early and often (see the section on Restaurants).

    Seeing RED!

    Do you bleed Husker Red?

    Most of Lincoln, and the entire state of Nebraska does. So, if you're in town on a football game day (most Saturdays in the fall) be prepared to see red red red.

    Also, be prepared for a mass of people from all over the state to decend upon Lincoln. Shopping malls get full, downtown is impossible to drive through, and the I-180 into town is choked up before and after the game.

    If you're in a hurry, don't...

    If you're in a hurry, don't attempt to drive anywhere in a 250 mile radius. Not only are the drivers infernally slow, they have this quaint local custom of coming to a near stop, then swinging out wide before making a right turn.

    ...Talk about driving the out-of-towners crazy!!

    If you want to be bored out of your mind... Move here! For being a state capital it's the smallest I've ever lived in. I've lived in this town for 10 years, and I can tell you that these people live and breathe college football. It's ridiculous. They will actually go insane when their team doesn't win. (And it usually doesn't if it's against a ranked team.) Also check out the police scanner. It's about the most entertaining thing going on in Lincoln. Unless you're a college student or a medical professional there is absolutely no reason to live here. I'll be more than happy to finally move out of this state.
