People:
Nice. Minnesotans are nicer if you went to highschool/college with them. Out-of-staters don't do so well. To be really accepted, you have to be from here.
Weather:
Winter:
IT'S COLD. Somehow, the cold in MN will freeze the marrow in your bones. You will wonder why the HELL you live here every morning.
Minnesotans pride themselves that it only gets "cold" here when it hits negative temperatures. We get excited when it gets above freezing.
Summer:
Best summer in the world. Lakes, flawless temperature, sunny. Birds singing and blue skies. Ice cream and popcorn at Lake Harriet. Canoeing in the Boundary Waters. Going to the cabin. Life is really good.
Spring/Fall: Normal.
Recreation:
We know how to have a good time. We aren't all about ice fishing. We can have raging parties. Come to MN, make the right friends, and enjoy.
We also have the Mall of America, which kinda spoils us.
The Twin Cities=AWESOME. You want metropolitan, cool, and all the amenities of a Chicago/New York City without the stress. Minneapolis. Urban shops, cool boutiques, weird hole-in-the-walls, amazing band venues.
More artsy, alternative? St. Paul. Rich in history and art, all the hipsters love St. Paul.
Sports:
Overall, our sports teams are OK. Our biggest asset is the Vikings, which as of 2011, sucked, but Vikes fans bleed gold and purple. We are the best fans in the world.

1) Land of 10,000 Lakes and 475,947,540,594,750 Mosquitos.

2) We do NOT sound like the poeple in Fargo. In fact, we Minnesotans laugh at your stupidity for thinking so. I'm beginning to wonder if ANY of you have ever talked to a REAL Minnesotan. But, we do have a slight accent. And there's nothing wrong with that.

3) We're not conservative hicks. Some are conservative, some are liberal and some just don't really care.

4) We have Mall Of America, baby! It's huge and they're going to extend it further. It's really great there, check it out!
Interesting little facts:
- If a shopper spent 10 minutes browsing at every store, it would take them more than 86 hours to complete their visit to Mall of America.
- Seven Yankee Stadiums can fit inside Mall of America.

5) Ahem, we have FOUR seasons. If you've been to Minnesota, for a FULL year- then you would know this. If not, don't even open your stupid a** mouth. And our Summer ranges from 70-115 degrees, dumb a**es!

6) People in Minnesota say pop, not coke or soda. Get the f*** over it! Soda is acceptable. Coke is just retarded, Coke is a KIND of pop/soda. "Yeah, I'd like a Coke" *Person brings Coca-Cola* "WTF IS THIS?!!?!?! I DIDN'T MEAN A COKE COKE, I MEANT A MOUNTAIN DEW COKE". Pshh, yeahhh.

7) People in Minnesota do NOT brag about us being the best state, because we usually don't think that. We'd only think it if we traveled to EVERY state and felt Minnesota was better for us. *Cough* People boasting about their state being #1 is pathetic, I'm PRETTY SURE 99% of them haven't been to EVERY state the U.S.A offers.

8) The Minnesota Long Goodbye. I hate it, but it's true. A Minnesotan will take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or so just to say goodbye. If you come to Minnesota, be prepared for it.

9) We have severe road rage, but we do not drive like the idiots in Texas. :)

10) Fresh air, trees, beautiful scenery = Minnesota.

11) Everyone in the bigger states think they are THE BEST. Well, sure. You have the highest crime rates. Congrats! You're kid isn't safe at the park, in school or any other public place for that matter. Atleast in Minnesota, we can walk around and NOT get shot at. :) I love living with no fear.

12) Overall, Minnesota is an upbeat state. It isn't given enough credit, because everyone choses to hate on it. I personally think it's Wisconsin and Iowa giving us a bad name.
Minnesota is a cool state, if people just give it a f***ing chance and stop being so egotistical about their state.
