The 5th state in the nation. Connecticut is a diverse state, to the extreme. A extremely strange mixture of extremely rich to wanna-be gangsters, to gangsters, to middle class blue collar, to strait rednecks. Cities like New Haven, Hartford, and Bridgeport, where shootings, drug dealing, and prostitution is common, also contain normal people in the mix. There are also places like Greenwich, which contain the gated, extremely wealthy residents. There are also places where you will find plenty of rednecks. These people will spend there days working, fishing, off-road driving, and drinking by bonfires, lol. Connecticut is overall an average middle class hard working state, with a mixture of both extremes, from rich to dirt poor, from successful business men and women, to welfare relying bums and everything in between.

Connecticut is bordered by MA to the north, RI to the east, LI NY to the south, and NY to the west.

Connecticut is the Alonconquin indian word meaning "The longest river"

My home state...where New Yorkers go to turn off their brains, where NYC business men keep their mistresses, and the nutmeg state. We also have the highest IQ, highest cost of living, one of the highest teen heroin usage levels, and, of course, nutmeg.
We all just really want to get out of Connecticut

Connecticut is widely recognized for its wealth. Home to Fairfield County, one of the richest counties in the US, including Westport, Greenwich, Ridgefield, Darien, New Canaan and others. When leaving this sheltered little state and asked where your from people tend to automatically assume your rich. You can usually find a wide range of SUVs, luxury vehicles, big houses and ridiculously expensive boutiques when visiting Connecticut.
"Your from Connecticut aren't you?"

"How can you tell?"

"Oh, I don't know. Maybe because you drive a BMW, and wear nothing but polo shirts"

...
"How do you spell the state you live in again?"

"C-o-n-n-e-c-t-i-c-u-t"

"Damn, it's just easier to call it the rich state"

Ahhh, there's nothing like moving from NJ to Connecticut and realizing that "richest state in the U.S." sure doesn't seem like it! And all that crap about having the highest I.Q.?? You sure wouldn't know it from taking one step in here. Home of the wanna-be's!! We live secluded, isolated and in total ignorant bliss! Aren't you jealous now?
"Wow, I'm leaving as soon as I can."
