i am from Connecticut and let me say I AM NOT RICH!!! also, i dont wear ambercrombie and hollister. The reason why it looks like were rich is b/c celebrities choose to spend their gazzillion dollars on buying homes here; their income is what makes our income per capita so large. i do not think New Jersey sucks b/c i like it there. maybe its a misconception but People from CT arnt stuck up snobs who hate you. so its not nice to write things that make us look like horrible people.
beacuse i'm not a meanie
its making me put connecticut!

Growing up in CT you just feel like an average kid. You felt average because your friend’s fathers are VPs or CEOs just like yours. You don’t feel particularly smart because you aren’t different from the neighbor kids. You don’t feel racist because you grow up without racial tension. Your neighbors and friends that are just like you that you didn’t feel were unusually smart or stupid ended up being brain surgeons. In Connecticut you only have a high IQ if you leave Connecticut or if you hang out with people that move here from somewhere else. Connecticut is beautiful and it is my home.
When you start getting sick of one season Connecticut just moves on to the next one.

Capital City:

Unlike the largely white Hartford once run by clubby Yankee businessmen everyone called the Bishops, Perez's Hartford is a city of minorities, many from Jamaica and Puerto Rico, with the largest percentage of Latinos north of Miami and east of the Mississippi. A way station for suburban-bound immigrants, Hartford has a homeownership rate of less than 25% -- the nation's second-lowest, after Newark, N.J. Thirty-one percent of its 125,000 residents live in poverty. Only Brownsville, Texas, ranks lower.

The fifth state to join the union of the United States. Considered by many to be one of the six New England states, the other five being Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Maine; considered by New Englanders to be an annex of the state of New York.
Masshole: 'Where ah you from?'
Connecticutian: 'Connecticut.'
Masshole: 'Really? I've never been to that paht of New York."
Connecticutian: 'It's not part of New York!'
Rhode Islander, New Hampshirite, Vermonter, and Mainiac: 'Sure it is.'
Connecticutian: -_-*

Richest state in the nation, but also one where most of the wealth is concentrated. Connecticut is known to most as simply a few wealthy towns in Fairfield County. Most of the state is less rich and unknown to the rest of the U.S, but the people in Fairfield County are so rich that the statistics are skewed. CT's cities are among the poorest in the country. The Capital, Hartford, is the 2nd poorest city with a population over 100,000 in the country and has been on the nation's 25 most dangerous cities list for a decade. New Haven and Bridgeport have also had historically rampant crime, and New Haven was the crack capital of the country in the early 1990s. Poverty and crime are primarily concentrated in these cities and some of their inner ring suburbs (e.g. West Haven; East Hartford; New Britain), but their overall metropolitan areas are among the richest in the nation. Connecticut actually has very little rural land, as the 4th most densely populated state in the U.S., but is rather, undergoing intensive urban sprawl in all its metropolitan areas, especially the Stamford area, where New York City residents are moving.
Much like the United States in general, most of Connecticut's money is found in only a few towns.

My home state in which I have spent half my life so far. Get this through your thick heads america, WE ARE ALL NOT RICH! I lived in Waterbury which is really ghetto and filled with blacks and hispanics.

The Connecticut that I know is far different from what comes to mind for everyone else. The Connecticut that I know is a rough and tumble place full of alcoholics and people recently laid off from their $75k+ factory jobs. It's a small place where people think small and use small words. (Forgive me Peter Gabriel) Contrary to CT having a high IQ, most nutmeggers I knew were just a notch above retarded.

Which is why I moved to Orlando, Florida where I increased my standard of living for much less money
Man: I need to get out of Connecticut
Friend : Anywhere is better then Connecticut

One of the highest taxed states in the U.S. Commonly seen as the "rich state". The state where there is absolutely nothing to do besides work, drive around, go to Foxwoods/Mohegan Sun, or drink/do drugs.

Connecticut very rarely pumps out any pro or semi-pro athletes at all. Home to cities and counties such as Farfield (the rich part), New Haven (the wannabe NYC Bronx), Hartford (New England street racing central), and New London/Groton-Mystic County (the extremely boring part where the casinos call home).

If you want to move to a boring state then you can choose Connecticut.
Jake: Yo dawg, you're moving to Connecticut. What, did your parents hit the lotto or something?

Bill: Nah man, my dad got a job at Pfizer there. I have a pen-pal that lives there. He told me to prepare myself with a handgun, Abercrombie shirts, and a bottle of scotch.... Sounds like hell.
