[News] Puerto Rico wants to become the 51st state of the US

Voters in Puerto Rico have supported a non-binding referendum to become a full US state.

The measure will require approval from the US Congress, but President Barack Obama has said he will respect the vote.

The island is currently a US territory, which uses the dollar and whose citizens travel on US passports.

But once we reach 51 states, the government will tell us if there are aliens in America or not.
Why do you think it's called Area 51?

I wonder what this will mean culturally to Puerto Ricans...and how Congress will expand to accomodate the new seats O_o
also, I see little has changed in the years I've been inactive :)

wouldn't it be better to cut out little white stars and sew them on existing flags? I mean, like... cost-wise?
I don't know huh! It's just an idea..!

Do you know how many goddamn flags there are.

Better to just merge two states, like the Dakotas. It's not like anyone would notice.
