A group of Robin Hooders once paid expired parking meters before tickets could be handed out.

A six-person group going by the name of "Robin Hood and his Merry Men" were sued in 2013 by the city of Keene for paying random people's expired parking meters and filming ticketing officers. In December, a judge dropped all chargers against the Robin Hooders.

I live in Washington State now (booring!) but I am from Maryland, this is kinda cool!

Maryland

Beatlemania was ignited in the U.S. by a teenage Marylander.

188111012

Before The Beatles were selling records in the U.S., a 15-year-old girl from Maryland named Marsha Albert called a radio station in Washington D.C. and asked, “Why can’t we have music like that here in America?” after seeing a news segment about the British band. The DJ tracked down a copy of the single "I Want To Hold Your Hand," and after the station began playing the song, demand skyrocketed in the U.S. as other stations followed suit.

Massachusetts

Lobster was once so abundant in this state that it was given to slaves and prisoners.

141799876

The state used to have so many lobsters that they'd regularly be fed to prisoners, slaves and other groups that usually get short shrift when it comes to food. Apparently, some professional servants even inserted a clause in their contracts that they would only be given lobster twice a week, not wanting to eat lobster all day, every day.

Pennsylvania

A Norwegian musician once tried to build a "New Norway" in this state.

6410000887

Norwegian musician Ole Bull attempted for a short time in 1852 to establish a New Norway colony in Pennsylvania, which is now commonly referred to as the Ole Bull Colony. The project failed when there wasn't enough land to till, and Bull ended up going back to performing concerts.

 Vermont

A giant dome was almost built over a city just north of Burlington.

97018953

The town of Winooski was almost covered in a giant dome when city planners decided it might be a good way to address the town's winter energy conservation problem. This idea apparently came about after a few glasses of wine, but ended up going far enough to attract political support and worldwide media attention. In the end, the town couldn't secure the funds, meaning that Winooski remains domeless.
