Shaped like a heart, Ohio sits underneath Lake Erie
. It is home to major cities that include Columbus
(the mistake on the lake), and mediocre cities that include Youngstown
, and Dayton
. It's been said that if you want to be in an up-and-coming NuMetal/Rap-Rock band, move to Youngstown. If you want to be in a shitty punk-cock-rock band, move to Cleveland. If you want to be in a sweet indie pop/rock band, move to Columbus. The most depressing of Ohio's landscap is west of Toledo
, it's all flat, straight down to really anything west of Columbus. SE and NE are the most beautiful parts with amazing parks and beautiful rolling hills. Some of the most back-water hicks aren't even in WVA, they're from here. Bush-votin' NASCAR-watchin mullet-havin' hicks that do indeed go cowtipping. Wendy's started here. The statements about the weather changing on a dime: completely true. There have been some winters with only one snow--of five inches, but freezing rain for the most part, that finally kicked in during the early part of December. Spring starts in May, forget calendrical values of seasons, that's when it starts. People in the cities can't drive because they don't have to, with public transit. The people in the country can drive mainly because there's not transit, and the local-smoky cops are so bored that you get pulled over for pretty much anything. If you have out of state plates, make sure you check your license plate lights and that your muffler is working. The fuzz will let you know if they're not functioning properly. And just for future reference. Don't sleep with girls from East Palestine (NE), they all have chlamydia. Other than that, it's a diverse state full of every kind of person you could imagine. Yes, including smart people. And for the record. It's pronounced "Ahiuh" or "Ahia/Ohia". None of this "Oh-high-oh" bs.
