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. At least Michigan, Wisonsin and Minnesota have opportunities to enjoy nature with its water and stuff. Ohio at least has 3 the R&R Hall of Fame in Cleveland, and Columbus is a neat college town. 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 Atlanta, 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, unhealthy and stupid. 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, because there are no descent, much less good-paying jobs for college graduates. The people are also stupid. They continue to re-elect the same stupid, uneducated, ignorant politicians like themselves, that continue to screw them. And 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 and other things. They routinely and ignorantly blame their good Governor for the good things he has done for Indiana in 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 moved out and NEVER to return. Good riddence. If only I could get my family out of there.
