The Wolverine State. The capital of the Rust Belt. A Great Lakes state of the Upper Midwest, where the weather changes faster than a NY prostitute. The weather sucks big time. It's too cold for much of the year and too humid in the summer. It is not uncommon in anywhere in Michigan to get some snow in May. It can be 70-degrees one day and in the 50s and rainy the next. The skies are gray with overcast much of the time, making Michigan one of the states with the least amount of sunshine.

It currently ranks 8th in population with almost 10 million people, but will be passed soon by Georgia and North Carolina. Lansing is the capital and Detroit is its largest city. Other important population centers include Grand Rapids, Flint, Kalamazoo-Battle Creek and Ann Arbor. About half of the state lives in the Detroit metro area.

If you think your state has problems, try coming here. Michigan has serious problems and is experiencing a "one state" recession compared to the rest of the U.S., because it is controlled by the corrupt and anitquated labor unions of the auto industry, such as the UAW, and their Democrat money. It has refused to diverisfy its economy by placing all of its economic eggs in this industry alone. This has produced devastating effects: Michigan and Detroit have become the capital of the Rust Belt; the most job losses of any state and the highest unemployment rate as plants close, downsize or move to Mexico; people then move south or file for unemployment or transfer to plants out of state; the nation’s highest number of foreclosures; and a decline in population as people move elsewhere to find work. Things have gotten so bad for many of Michigan’s cities, that Governor Jennifer Granholm initiated a failed “cool cities” initiative to attract young folk back to its cities. It will never work because once Michiganders graduate from college, they usually leave this place. Who could blame them?

Outside its cornfields and declining Rust Belt cities, Michigan has some nice places, mostly in the far north Lower Peninsula and Upper Peninsula (which should belong to Wisconsin). The state is generally Dull with a capital-D with not much to do. However, Mackinac Island (pronounced MAC-IN-AW)is popular in the summer. Frankenmuth has the world's largest Christmas store and Detroit is only good for going to casinos and bars. OK, so Dearborn (a Detroit suburb) has Greenfield Village and Detroit is four professional sport teams, but the rest of the city is an urban nightmare and should almost be avoided at all costs.

Most Michiganders love to escape their "downstate" urban hell for their cabins or summer homes in Northern Michigan. Northern Michigan is good for hunting, fishing, skiing and going to the lake. Michiganders talk with a funny accent that resembles a northern dialect heard in Wisconsin, Minnesota or Ontario. Michiganders can't drive worth a damb and usually speed on the freeway as if they were in the Indy 500. Other than that, Michiganders have Midwest values and are generally friendly when compared to either coast.
Michigan is generally dull with not many good paying jobs anymore, but it is NOT the worst state to live in compared to those Great Plains States.

Ohio State University's bitch

Michigan is the only state in the United States of America where the majority of men are fags that would much rather blow another guy or take it in the ass than they would bang a hot chick, though you really can't blame them as the majority of women from there are fat ass pigs that usually wear flannel shirts and don,t shave their nasty crotch which often confuse the many queer lumberjacks because it looks so like the undergrowth of a uncut forest. All in all a state that should belong in Canada.
Dude, I was driving along and I found myself in Michigan and every woman there looked like a dude and every dude wanted to blow me or have me fuck em in the ass !! Stay away from Michigan !!

1. the capital of the rustbelt

2. a place one will rarely find a job. The ones that are there are leaving soon.

3. its largest city is Detroit where its population is leaving by the droves.

4. its good if you like skiing, snowmobiling, fishing or hunting

5. too many rednecks in the northern part of the state

6. land of decaying, industrial towns of all sizes that are overpopulated with old-fart-GM retirees who dont know how to drive worth a dam

7. Their idiotic northern accent drives me nuts. Dont know how to pronounce simple words like hike,like bike, milk or can. Hike, like and bike are pronounced "hoyk" "loyk" and "boyk." Milk is pronounced "melk" and can is pronounced "ken"
Michigan sucks and has absolutely no hope whatsoever.

A state composed of rundown cites and a backwoods full of militia members working on their '87 Camaros.
What is that smell? Any why is everyone around me driving El Caminos and various other rusted out junkers? Oh dear God I've taken a wrong turn and now I'm in Michigan!

2.) how does it feel to lose against Appalachain State?
