A city in Indiana known for it's astonomical high meth lab rates, prostitution rings, and horrible horrible smell in the Southern part of the city. It was also nicknamed "Sin city" by Time magazine decades ago. The cities moto is "A Level Above" but sadly the only thing it is above is a pile of elephant feces.
There is a horrible smell in the air, a prostitute on the corner, and a meth lab down the street....I must be in Terre Haute!

A comfortable southwestern town in Indiana with a high meth lab rate, too many corn fields, and not much to do on weekends, but still severely mistreated and understated by its inhabitants.

unlike that place in Indiana its pronounced "tara hut"

A tiny town in the middle of nowhere, Illinois. Population about 80 people, consists of a church, beauty salon, fire department, and an antique store. If you blink you'll miss it. Possibly the coolest place ever.
passenger: where are we? The sign said Terre Haute...Are we in Indiana?
driver: No, we're in Illinois. Terre Haute, Illinois is by far cooler than Terre Haute, Indiana!
