All real industry has left except for the dieing paper industry. Most local telephone books have 10 surnames that make up 90% of the directory. Maine is wicked "white". Wages are so low here that immigrant labor stays away. Which is to bad because the gene pool is very shallow here. It is difficult to get a DNA conviction here due to the fact that most of the DNA is the same. Also all of the bizarre incest stories you have heard about Maine are all true. York County had the highest child molestation rate in the nation (large population of lobstermen). The summer people like to say its "Gods Country" but they fail to understand that he doesn't spend the winter. Don't get sick here, the local doctors and hospitals will kill you for your organs. Medivac to Boston is your only hope. Education in Maine. What a fucking joke! You pay peanuts you get monkeys. 25% drop out rate and 20% pregnancy rate and less than 5% college graduation rate is standard state wide. There is a lot of home schooling, it makes it easier to molest your own kids.
I have been here for 30 years and I am leaving.
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?
Maine, now you've seen it, go home you tourist!
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.
