The Hoosier State. Calls itself the Crossroads of America. The epitome of "flyover territory." One of those Midwest/Great Lakes States with a very slow pace of life and too many declining Rust Belt cities. Indiana is almost nothing but a flat, dull, boring, drab, lifeless, cornfield hell. There are basically no large cities, but its capital and largest city of Indianapolis is the only city in the state to come even remotely close to being a big city. Indiana is about the only state (with the possible exception of Ohio) you will find a manufacturing plant next to a cornfield. It's abundance in boredom is matched by its many declining Rust Belt cities: Gary, Michigan City, South Bend, Kokomo, Muncie, Anderson and Terre Haute. Even Indianapolis proper, with the exception of the rest of the metro area, isn't growing much.

Indiana is very quaint and definately not Colorado or those mountain states. There is no geography or picturesque scenery. There is no mountains. No water. No shoreline. No beaches (beaches next to steel mills on Lake Michigan don't count). Nothing to do. No cool places to see, much less anything to write home about. No opportunities to get out and enjoy nature--that's why so many people are so fat. I don't like Michigan but at least it has opportunities to enjoy nature with its water, and it has a cool coolege town of Ann Arbor. I don't like Ohio either but at least it has 3 large cities: Columbus, Cleveland and Ciny. Columbus is quaint but sophisticated college town and Cleveland has the R&R Hall of Fame. Tennesssee at least has Graceland and numerous bars in Memphis while Nashville is the home of country music and the Grand Ole Opry. Illinois at least has Chicago, America's 3rd largest popuation center and an awsome world-class city. At least Pennsylvania has neat, historical Philadelphia. And at least Georgia has Atanata, which is quickly becoming an international center. But Indiana has NOTHING!!

It's 6.4 million Hoosiers (14th in population for some reason)as its people are called are also, fat, stupid, antiquated and unhealthy. Indiana consistently ranks among the worst states in education and ACT/SAT scores. Most people, like me, leave when they graduate from college, creating the brain drain. They leave because there are no descent, much less good-paying jobs for college graduates. The people are also stupid. They refuse to get out of their antiquated thinking to change anything, even when it behooves their state. They consistently yell about taxes that are wisely used to improve the state's antiquated roads. They routinely and ignorantly blame their good Governor for the good things he has done for Indiana is the past several years. Like I said, the people don't like any change, even when good. Hoosiers also have among the highest rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and smoking. Hoosiers are also racist and generally talk bad about blacks (who comprise 12% of the state) and Hispanics, especially Mexicans.

Like I said, Indiana is good for nothing and is a dull, boring, drab, lifeless cornfield hell. IT is a terrible place to live in general. I grew up there until I was 23 when I found a good job, and will NEVER return. Good riddence. If only I could get my family out of there.
I grew up in Indiana for 23 years and can say, with confidence, that it is among the worst states. I don't know how/why people can live there. Only Kentucky, West Virginia, Mississippi, Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska are worse.

A Midwestern state of excessive whining from 6.3 million sorry ass people who have no life but to complain about anything and everything, even if it behooves their state. Most of their whining is based on pure laziness and ignorance, proving Hoosiers are anitquated and don't really know what they want because they are afraid of change. Unfortunately, this makes my home state of Indiana a laughingstock. They complain about the bad and complain about the good. They complain about EVERYTHING. They want to have their cake and eat it too. The state is where NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) is a disease and impeading progress. This is the typical Hoosier mindset:

1. They complain that there's allegedly no jobs in the State but then complain when a company wants to invest in the State saying, "it isnt enough" or "it will ruin the environment" or that "Indiana is the 'last place' a company should bring jobs to."

2. They complain about their politicians but then continuously re-elect them.

3. They complain that Indiana's politicans are shortsighted and antiquated but then complain when Mitch Daniels, the current Governor, wants to make changes and modernize the state's infrastructure.

4. They complain of the alleged bad quality of roads but then complain when construction occurs to improve them.

5. They complain of the "lack" of money to maintain the roads but then complain about their tax dollars having to pay for improvements.

6. They complain about Indiana not having an interstate that goes southwest to Evansville but then complain it will "ruin the environment" or "only save XX minutes of commuting time to/from Indianapolis" or that "it will cost too many tax dollars" to build the needed freeway.

7. They complain the state is wasting money but then complain when the Governor privatizes the Toll Road to do it.

8. They complain the state's infrastructure is antiquated but then complain when Governor Daniels brings changes that will behoof the state.

9. They complain the state's leaders break campaign promises and can't be trusted but then complain when Governor Daniels does everything he promised he would.

10. They complain that the state relies too much on manufacturing but then complain when manufacturing jobs are lost to high-tech automation.

11. Indianapolis area residents complain about the lack of lightrail but then complain taxes will be used to pay for it or "ridership won't be enough" or "Indy isnt dense enough"

12. They complain about the presence of too much government but then complain of a police merger (IndyWorks!)in Indianapolis to decrease it.

13. They complain about the bad quality of schools but then complain that taxes will be used to improve them.

14. They complain about how small and antiquated the RCA Dome in Indianapolis is but then complain when taxes are used to build a new stadium (Lucas Oil Stadium).

Indiana residents have no life and have nothing to do but complain about everything, even when it behooves the state. Indiana: the Capital of whining. What do you people think your tax dollars are for?

A state in the mid west that is full of racist kkk members. It is believed that this state belongs in the deep sounth between Alabama and Arkansas.

Indiana is a flat, green, humid, corn-pone state.
When I was in Indiana, I joined the KKK and ate corn.

Terrible place to live for the most part. However, the birth place of AXL ROSE! Also, to the guy who said Kokomo was the huge KKK meeting, I thought that was Elwood, IN?
Guy: Where you from?
Me: Indiana :(
Guy: Indiana has produced nothing good. Ever.
Me: Bitch, AXL ROSE!!!!
