Was the hamburger really born in New Haven, Conn., at Louis' Lunch, not far from where many claim the pizza was created - at Frank Pepe Pizzeria (right)? While those two Connecticut claims to fame are widely disputed, they are just a couple of the fun facts that help define New England. Discover more historical tidbits and oddities from the region.

@tsarstepan,
New England is way cooler than New Mexico because it is lots farther north.

Next question.

@MontereyJack,
We have blueberries and cranberries.

We have Matt Damon but that does mean we have to take responsibility for Ben Affleck.

We also have apparently an impenetrable accent that no one in the movies or television can do unless they were born here.

@roger,
Yeah, I wondered whether this was a meteorological or cultural question.

@Rockhead,
Actually, where I live there is a movement to revive wheat growing, imagined and supported by a couple who run an artisanal bakery. I can walk from my house to see cows. It was 105 one day this July!

Maine lobster far surpasses those sad sacked clawless lobsters from the ugly spiny lobster from the Caribbean.

Besides, we're not far away, we're right here, you're the one that's far away.

@MontereyJack,
The states of New England are perfectly placed in the universe. Some scientists claim that the six states of New England are the basis of the center of the universe and that the center of the universe is constantly rotating in a 24 hour cycle as well as a bigger elliptical orbit that lasts 365.25 day cycle around an off centered star.[citation needed]
