See: all the definitions below.

Granted, many of the stereotypes are true, as is with every state, but for those who have lived there all their lives, they wouldn't want it any other way. Or they want to get the hell out, only to see that it has infected them and find themselves yearning for the seasons, natural beauty and people that have shared the experience of growing up there.

And yes there is Abercrombie in Maine, not just flannel outlets, as well as all those who fit the image, for all the young hip crowd out there.

Stay there for a while, get past some of the podunk stereotypes (or immerse...atv's are the shit) and you might become infected too...

Get the accent, it sets you apart. Who needs r's anyway.
I grew up in Maine and was tired of the stereotypes only to find they were such a small part of the experience.

as a kid from maine, I'll say I kinda like it. Sure I love moxie, but so should you. Portland is a sweet city. It has more resturants/bars/pubs/club-ish things then you would ever be able to visit in a lifetime. Also, the ocean is wicked (yes I know) awesome. For instance you can go sailing around and chill beaches.
If you can't be pro-active enough to find stuff, or hate the outdoors, its not for you. Just let me know if maine has ever caused a problem to anyone else. Seriously, do you have a blueberry alergy or something?
Its 75 and sunny all day in the summer, and you just go ski in the winter.

If you like the ocean, Maine is the place to be. For all you morons who consider incest to be a popular thing in Maine, grow the hell up, you find that stuff everywhere. Just like you find "white trash" everywhere. And who are you to consider who is white trash anyways?
I don't have an example.

A state with a population of just over a million people, visited by tourists year after year, their only goal is to piss off the natives, The person above has no idea what he is talking about because Maine is acutally a very expensive state to life in.
Maine, worth a visit, worth a lifetime.
Maine, now you've seen it, go home you tourist!

A state that everyone trashes on; One that has horrible education budgets, yet still has some of the best public schools in the country. Lots of people smoke and drink... I live in Maine so stop trashing it!
Get out of Maine you effing tax raisers... Now.

Actually, Maine is an extremely expensive state. I don't know why ya'll is hatin' on it, it's one of the best places to live and it's not that boring. When people read this about Maine they're going to think all of us are hillbillies and that we marry our cousins! Thats not true! Maine has inner-cities too, but not quite like New York City or Las Angeles..but it has its share. It has beautiful summers that last more than 2 weeks and the best falls.
Uh, I don't have an example.

a place where being in the top ten percent of your highschool class is the same as being in the top ten people.....people still don't believe me when i said my graduating class was 113 people.

a place where you can drive for fifty miles, go through the center of town in a minute and a half and then drive another fifty miles before you see another traffic light...

down in Ellsworth we joke that if any more tourists come visit Bar Harbor for the Fourth of July, the whole island (Mount Desert Island) is going to sink.
Maine slang:

Yes = Ayuh (eye-ya)
pizza and soda = pizzer and soder
