A state in the United States of America which ranked dead last in a recent study of brain health, ranked third in obese people, and 4 years removed from Hurrican Katrina still looks like a ghost town; primarily the East New Orleans area, where entire shopping and residential areas are completely abandoned, but also in the downtown area just off Canal Street where high rise buildings still have boards in windows and appear to be unoccupied.

Oh, but tourists, fear not, for Bourbon Street still houses a large selection of bars and strip clubs as well as streets that must be washed, literally, everymorning to remove the human waste and spilled beer.

The French Quarter atmosphere would have you think that this is very liberal-minded state, however, most of the people retain very low education, as shown by recent studies, and thus, vote conservative. But how else would you expect a people to behave when they are surrounded by 20 foot walls that keep flood waters out?

A southern state in the USA known for a fascinating culture, but it's very unsafe to swim there because of alligators.

Third world state of the united states that LOVES to do construction during the middle of the day with all the traffic , and WHORDES MONEY. Katrina was an eye opener to the whole world as to what problems this place has. Home of the worst schools.
When I get enough money, I'm moving out of Louisiana.

The American third world. A forlorn jerkwater state that, while not without its merits, is home to either the tragically-dull or the desperate-to-escape.

More cultural diversity than most Southern states and more cute girls than some, but mostly a vast expanse of slum-holes and nowhere. Weird smell emanating from the land probably has adverse affects on the human brain.

A viper's nest of political corruption and moral failure, Louisiana also manages to attract terrific churches to fight back the encroaching darkness.

Popular destination for criminals, and airhead college students, looking for trouble or a place to hide.

I'm sick of being around attractive, college-educated people with upward ambitions and a desire to change the world. I wish I could just get away from it all.

Oh wait, I know! Let's go to Louisiana!!
