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.

The Asshole of America. Indiana has corn, basketball, rednecks, birthers, shitty weather, CAFO's, corn, bad smells, corrupt county goverments, rude people, hypocritical Jesus freaks, corn, polluted rivers, raptor-killing wind farms, corn, wind, illegal aliens, right-to-work laws, and Elwood.
And corn.
Synonym for "hell" in polite conversation.

A place where rednecks thrive in the south, but perfectly normal people thrive in the north. All in all, it's pretty boring.

Most Hoosiers are Republicans and Christians. Being an atheist and a Democrat, I stick out like a sore thumb.
I live in Fishers, Indiana--aka: really boring, conservative suburb. But at least the residents in Fishers are better than the snobs that live in Carmel.
