    The Smallest Town in Every State:: According to the internet for Mississippi it's::: Satartia, Mississippi.

    Satartia lies on the east bank of the Yazoo River in central-eastern Mississippi. It was briefly feautured in the 2000 movie "'O'Brother,where art thou"".

    A vertical lift bridge was built over the Yazoo River in 1976 and has since been the site of some unexplained paranormal occurrences.

    Some say the bridge and the river are "Haunted" by the Yazoo Indians who inhabited the area long before "Europeans" arrived..

    Re: Mississippi #1

    Advice for anyone moving to Mississippi:::

    1- Save all manners of Bacon Grease. You'll be instructed later how to use it..

    2- Just because you can Drive on Snow and Ice does not mean we can. Just stay home the 2 days of the year it might snow.

    3- If you do run your car into a ditch, don't panic. 4 Men in the cab of a four wheel drive with a 12-pack of beer and a tow chain will be along shortly.
    Don't try and help them. Just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.

    4- If you are yelling at the person driving 15 mph in a 55 mph zone. Directly in the middle of the road. Remember many folks learned to drive on a model of vehicle
    known as John Deere. and this is the proper speed and lane position for that vehicle.

    5-If you hear a redneck say ""Hey Y'all" watch this. Stay out of his way. These are likely his last words ever.

    6- Hot Dog Chili does NOT have beans in it.

    7- If you think its "Too Hot"" don't worry it'll cool down in December.

    8- We do too have 4- Seasons-- December, January, February and Summer..
