Encyclopedia > Laurinburg, North Carolina

Laurinburg is a mid-sized city in Scotland County, North Carolina, United States, that consists of a Wal-Mart, Golden Corral and a few other fast food resturaunts. It is one of the most boring places to live unless you like smoking pot and partying. The high school, Scotland High School, has one of the highest drop out rates and one of the highest pregnancy rates in the entire state. More than half the students that graduate from the high school do not go to college at all or go to a community college. It is infested with crazy people, such as one named Kyle, who burst into class rooms and shake people, for example. Don't forget the town's mad scientist who is known for not only insanity but idiocy- Neil. He claims to be able to catch lightning in a jar and spends all of his free time with his wife, known as Duct Tape, and enjoys being an ass to anyone he deems inferior. It is the county seat of Scotland CountyGR6. Located in southern North Carolina near the South Carolina state border, Laurinburg is southwest of Fayetteville and is home to St. Andrews Presbyterian College and a large number of dedicated and amazing citizens.
