The welcome sign says, "Welcome to Michigan. Great Lakes. Great Times." I don't know why because there isn't much to do or see. Hunting, yes. Fishing, yes. Ice fishing, yes. And Sometimes snow skiing. Then there is the world's largest Christmas store in Frankenmuth, Greenfield Village in suburban Detroit and Mackinac Island (pronounced MAK-IN-AW) in northern Michigan, which is only good in the summer. Does all this qualify as something to do? Not in my opinion, but that's just me. Generally Michigan is a boring state to live in. No culture. No diversity, unless wiggers, hicks and white suburban yuppies count. No mountains. No amusement parks. No beaches or hot women in bikinis, except in the far south if you like polluted Lake Michigan. No awsome shopping opportunites like Chicago, Seattle or San Fran. There aren't many high-paying jobs either--at least not as many as there used to be because they all went to the Sun Belt or Mexico. Most people, IF they have a job, work in auto assembly plants downstate. The rest are either hick farmers and low-paying service workers. You will be looking for a long time to find work in this state. It should be part of Ontario. Michigan is not a very good state but, in fairness, is not the worst either. That would go to one of those Great Plains or Redneck States.
The biggest mistake I ever made was not moving out of Michigan sooner.

A.) Yeah, Michigan's not bad, except I'm getting laid off next week.
2.) The Michigan Wolverines are number 5. Again.
D.) "Hello, it's May 3rd. today was a beautiful day, 75 and sunny. Tomorrow there's a slight chance of snow and highs in the twenties."
4.) "Did you check out that new band from Grand Rapids, Still Remains?"
"Yeah bro. They're so xmetalx. Woot."
E.)"2,000 jobs will be lost as yet another company moves down to Mexico, where they can pay workers 1/6th what they pay them now."

First line of defense against the canadians.
The canadians were planning to attack, but their efforts were thwarted due to the wonderful defenses of Michigan.
