Some stuff you ought to know about Connecticut:
-Let's set the record straight, Connecticut is not really New England, go to Massachusetts if you want the real New England (but would you really want to deal with those awful Masshole drivers?)
-All the "New England" this or that crap in the state is fake, less than ten years old, and pushed by the state government in order to attract New Yorker tourists and there money, just like the Indian Casinos in the redneck part of the state (see Eastern Connecticut).
-Let's be real it's more like New York (Mid-Atlantic) than any New England state.
-It has many guidos (New Haven area, cough cough)
-It has lots of Jews (West Hartford's more Jewish than Tel-Aviv)
-It IS diverse (aka the anti-Vermont)
-Relatively well-integrated, at least compared to racist, overly Irish Boston
-It is fast-paced
-It has great (New Haven style) pizza. Boston sucks at making pizza, freckle-faced ginger massholes.
-Lot's of bids here are pretty.
-West Conn people say MAD, East Conn fag boston wannabes say WICKED every chance they get.
-It's not called a fucking Packy, it's either a bodega or a liquor store.
-Hartford and Springfield are NOT twin cities. Hartford wants nothing to do with the even shittier, more pathetic Springfield, Mass.
-Many people take advantage of the proximity to NYC and shop, go to ball games, see shows, and eat at the best restaurants in the world.
-No one goes to Boston unless they want to get drunk and beat up black people with Irish, freckle-faced, ugly, pimply, masshole, ginger red sux fans.
-Everyone ought to hate the Gaytriots, especially after they teased Hartford then retracted their plans to move there, because Hartford was not New England enough.
-People tend to like New Jersey better than Massachusetts. Who cares how it smells, people in Jersey won't hate you and be snobby, WASPY, elitist shits like any masshole would.
-People really aren't that snobby. And those that are, they can go fuck themselves. If you act snobby, you will be compared to Bostonians (Red Sox fan massholes), because they are snobby, do you really want that?
-If you live west of the Connecticut River, you root for NY teams.
-If you are a minority, you root for NY teams (Boston is too damn racist... if you don't believe me, just Google "boston racist").
-If you live east of the Connecticut
River, you root for Boston teams and pretend to live in Massachusetts.
-If you like the Red Sox and live in Yanks territory (West Conn) you are VERY rude and vocal about it.
-If you like the Yanks and live in Red Sox territory (East Conn) you are quiet and unassuming--you don't want to piss off the drunk, belligerent asshole Boston fans.
-East of the river is the only part of the state that can be argued as being part of the true New England. People here are ornery and reserved (nice way of saying parochial) like Massholes.
-Most people in the state live in Western Connecticut (more populated and industrialized)
-The majority of the population lives in metro NYC (Fairfield, Litchfield, and New Haven counties combined)
-It's true that many people are wealthy, but many are also impoverished.
-There ARE indeed rich people outside of Fairfield County.
-Long Island Sound can be dirty in areas.
-People are real, unlike Fakeifornia.
-Nobody in this state (meaning YOU eastern Connecticut) liked the Red Sox prior to 2004.
-Hartford and Bridgeport are very dangerous. Waterbury and New Haven are also pretty bad, but not as much as those two.
-Hartford isn't a city, it's a big shitty town. New York is a city. Nobody in West Conn cares about Boston.
-Central Connecticut gets overrun on weekends by New Yorkers, New Jersyans, Rhode Islanders, and Massholes who like to shop here and not at their own fucking stores.
-An enormous wall should be built to keep the Massholes out, that, or $50 tolls to get in from Massachusetts.
Tourist: Connecticut is quintessentially New England.
Me: No it ain't. Massachusetts is a shithole we DON'T want to associate with.
Tourist: How would you know?
Me: I fucking live there.
According to U.S. News and World Report 2003 - Connecticut is THE RICHEST STATE in the nation and always has been by per capita new worth, average income, and cost of living. It's amazing how uneducated someone is to say New Jersey (which most everyone would agree is the nation's asshole) would be richer. Have fun peasant, New Jersey is 6th. Get castrated before you reproduce and your uneducated middle-low class spawn infect any more of the planet.
Nice Prada shoes. Are you from Connecticut?
Why yes, where are you from?
Well, that explains the smell.

Connecticut (abbrev.- CT) is one of the original 13 colonies. It is a crossover of Massachusetts and New York, but is still part of New England. Not everyone is a rich, stuck up asshole like people seem to think, it is an actual state with actual problems and benefits. There are arrogant snobs who put down on people, but those can be found anywhere.
The Nutmeg State
Part of New England
A Pleasant (but boring) State To Live In
Stop ripping on states you haven't lived in, it's annoying.
- Richest state
- Highest average IQ at 115
- State which gives the least to charity
Also, the dumbass that said New Haven had nothing but giant houses is a dumbass. Try leaving the Yale area before opening your mouth.
50 Cent has a house in Connecticut
All of you who think that Connecticut is just where snobby rich kids come from, you're wrong. Yes, about half the people here are asses. But the other half are normal people who just want to live free of sterotypes! The good half of us drive regular cars, not beat up 20 year old cars, but not BMWs and Mercades. We aren't super poor, or super rich. The averages may say that we are one of the richest, but that doesn't mean all of us are rich.
Shut the fuck up about Connecticut being super rich snobs or out of the way hicks. We have a diverse population just like any other state. You ignorant bitches are just listening to sterotypes.
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
