The state that is the epicenter for much noteworthy United States history and home to many of the nation's great pizza shops.

It is also one of the few states where you can't buy alcohol in grocery stores (or buy alcohol on Sundays, period). The roads are arguably the worst on the planet, the speed limits are low, and the weather is famous for its ability to go from kick-ass to suck-ass in 5 minutes flat, and stay that way for decades on end. The education system is poor, most citizens are missing teeth, the major cities are shot to hell and crime-ridden, and daily drug murders happen in every town between Philadelphia and New York.
Fuck this place, I'm moving to Arizona.

Where what some consider the happiest people in America (the Amish) almost never show it, where the "gay Dutch" hate gays, where you can't find anything to eat between Philadelphia airport and Lancaster, where it takes a year to get a farmer at a market you see two or three times a week to make conversation with you, and where you get fat, get gray, and die. I gained 30 pounds in three years. Probably the snack capital of the country, with no park districts I've seen to walk those calories off (that would require foresight, education, and civic planning). None of the middle age folk I got to know gave me any sense they liked me 'til I was moving.

Go ahead, fall in love with it in December, 'cause most of PA was made for Christmas (farmhouse kitsch, anyone?), but for culture's sake, don't move there. The reverse of Narnia, it's always Christmas in Pennsyltucky, but never charmed. Even an instutution as powerful, monied, dispursed, and excellent as Penn State can't address the ignorance of the populace. Trust me. If you don't have an AARP card, don't move there.
Philadelphia hip-hoppers The Roots celebrate their city's heritage, but they get to leave Pennsylvania on tour. Home of Constitution Hall, the Pennsylvania of today hasn't seen a civil liberty it didn't try to eradicate at the polls.

It's a state that every single person from the internet that I talk to is from.

The people there seem to think that they're state is hotter, has more farms, and has more road construction than any other state. They should try living in a midwestern state, like Iowa.
I'm from Pennsylvania!
Me too!
So am I! I'm from State College.

I hate living in Pennsylvania. There's too many farms and the roads are always under construction and it's 165°F every day.
part of the east coast's infamous "emo trio" (NJ, PA, MD/DC) from which a lot of the country's best emo bands come. also a lot of the country's crappiest, but oh-bloody-well.
Jacob's heart-wrenching voice and lyrics are making an appearance up in PA this weekend...anyone interested?

A state which is full of drugs and alcohol and is disguised as nice by it's forests and mountains. To most people who have moved from out of state it is a horrible place. The people are ignorant and lame. The small towns of this state are infested with drunkers and druggies.
Pennsylvania is a horrible state. Visit or move at your own risk of being tortured by the bordome od nowhere to go and the ignorance and rudeness of the people.

pennsylvania means "penns woods" after william penn but that meaning is inaccurate. it should mean "penns hell hole"
