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 state that is full of rednecks if you go to the southern parts suck as sullivan county, terre haute, etc... but if you get to the northern part around roselawn, south bend, demotte, etc... its really pretty, and there arent a bunch of rednecks who fuck thier cousins. The further up north you get in indiana, the better looking people get and the less redneck they are
southern indiana makes me want to shoot myself in the head

It may be just an average state, but sure as hell is better than those inbred Southern states, especially its neighbor Kentucky. Sure, the people can be ignorant, antiquated and shortsighted, but not as much as the South. Sure, the weather changes often, but not as badly as in Alaska. Okay, so it's a little quaint, but Michiganders to the north come to Indiana to buy cheaper cigarettes, Power Ball lottery tickets and fireworks that are illegal in Michigan. There's no beaches, but at least it has Lake Michigan, which is more than I can say for Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska or Oklahoma. There are no mountains whatsoever but at least it has some scenic hills in Brown County, south of Indianapolis. Sure it has a lot of corn, but its the corn that makes Indiana a major ethanol producer and will bring in billions of $$ when the Middle east refuses to sell us oil in the future. Most importantly, it’s not Kentucky or West Virginia, thank God!!

Indianapolis is it's capital and the 12th largest U.S. city.
Indiana is quaint with a lot of rednecks south of Bloomington, but at least it isnt Kentucky.
