1. A STATE! Believe it or not.

2. Pretty decent football team-The Mountaineers. Marshall thinks they can hang with us, they have an inferiority complex. Go back to I-AA!

3. We suceeded from Virginia back during the Civil War because, quite frankly, they were weak.
I once told a cabbie from Virginia that I was from West Virginia. He didn't know where that was. I punched him in the face and stole his cab. Sucker.

One of America's poorest states. New Yorkers who claim to be "tolerant" and then make jokes about Appalachians which they would never dare make about blacks or gays deserve a hard punch in the face.

West Virginia has been screwed and betrayed by the rich Bi-Coastal fat cats.

Witness the way the Elites behaved towards Jessica Lynch; they competed to exploit her. The CIA, the Pentagon, Tim Robbins, the Feminists, the Right, the Left, the media, the Metropolitan Elite...all GUILTY of RAPING Jessica Lynch.

Someday, there will be vengeance.
Chuck Yaeger, John Nash, Homer Hickam, Jessica Lynch are famous West Virginians, and are vastly superior to any of the worhtless, parasitic New York intelectuals.

West Virginians don't rape sheep, but New Yorkers raped Jessica Lynch.

A rugged, poverty stricken state with a naturally beautiful landscape and a unique population. West Virginia's poor economic infrastructure stems from the lack of an urban white-collar economy and collapse of the coal industry. The largest city in the entire state is Charleston, which is home to a mere 185,000 residents. However, the lack of a powerful economy has prevented suburban mall districts and McMansion golf course homes from destroying rural areas (as is common in most southern states). The result of this commercial isolation, rural living, and blue-collared work force is a truly authentic group of people who can only be defined as Mountaineers (which is the team name of West Virginia University). These Mountaineers are characterized by a love of the outdoors, a fondness of reckless partying, thier nasal southern/midwestern hybrid accent, and their generally gregarious attitudes. West Virginians usually inhabit small towns of about 15,000-45,000 where people live in modest homes on large sects of land, which explains the passion for all things outdoors. And with the beautiful, mountainous landscape, it is a perfect place to be an outdoorsman (especially in fall/winter). However, a large problem with West Virginia is fraud from those collecting from the goverment by either women who have pawned their children off on their parents, or by former laborers who file false claims of injury to collect money and prescriptions. Couple that with the large amount of productive young people who migrate to cities such as Baltimore, Pittsburgh, NYC, and Philadelphia, and there are not many young people with college experience who stay in the state.

In short, West Virginia is a pretty place without a city worth mention. Most people who live here are very easy going and fun, but also relatively uneducated and poor.
The state slogan is "West Virginia: Wild, Wonderful", and if it were ignoring economy, this would be a perfect description. Which is the reason I had to leave for Pittsburgh.

Anyone who says west virginia is boring is completely fucking inaccurate. Get your heads out of your fucking asses and go camping. We dont believe in incest and quite frankly every state has incestous people. Mary Lou Retton was one of the best gymnasts ever and well she was from west by god virginia. Homer Hickam who is one of the most important rocket scientists is from west by god virginia. We do have what you people call rednecks but we just call eachother friends. 90% of west virginia doesnt lock its doors because we have no reason. More people in west virginia owns guns then other places but less people get shot.
A place where you can go to church in blue jeans and a t shirt and still be seen as a god loving person.
A place where people are proud to be themselves because we are who we are.
A place that if you start a fight you will lose. We stand up for wat we believe in.
West Virginia is the best damn place in the world.

An extremely misunderstood state. It seceded from the Confederacy circa 1863 because the state opposed slavery. It is full of breathtaking scenery and a simplicity that is genuinely hard to find anywhere else. Life slows down a little in West Virginia... there isn't all the hustle and commotion of a larger city or state. It's peaceful, and wonderfully inspiring.
Those who live there know its flaws, but appreciate all its wonderful qualities. They call it home, and it holds a special place in their hearts.

Many people criticize the state for the stereotypical "Hillbillies" which allegedly inhabit it; however, if one pays attention to the critics, they themselves usually sound quite uneducated. Those who live in glass houses...
"Almost heaven, West Virginia

Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River

Life is old there, older than the trees

Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze

Country roads, take me home

To the place I belong

West Virginia, Mountain Mama

Take me home, country roads"

A state that is -not- part of Virginia. It is commonly mistaken for "western-Virginia". This mistake is most commonly made by non-Americans who think they are amazing at Geography.
West Virginian: "I'm from West Virginia."
Englishman: "Oh! I know people from Richmond!"
West Virginian: "Yeah! And I know someone from Glasgow!"

The state in which I live in.

While other states were building their economies in various ways, WV spent too much time and effort in coal. Which left everything else severely underdeveloped. When the coal companies left, which wasn't too long ago, they took with them what our state had been based on. So were basically behind everyone else. But we are catching up.

Yes, we do have shoes. Poverty has always ran rampant in this state and often times people only could afford the bare necessities. And sometimes children have fun playing bearfoot. We are Mountaineers.

Incest...yes. The strong family ties and isolation has resulted in may a incestial relationship. But that has ended for the most part in this modern age. But incest occurs in Alabama, Iowa, in every state really.

Yes, we have accents. We live in hollers. We warsh. But I am proud of my accent and so should most people. New Yorkers have an accent, so...

We are part of the South at hearts. We were a Union state but the Confederacy is much celecrated around here and many of our forefathers fought for that side. Especially here in southern WV.

Our main problem now is working-class men who fake back injuries so they can receive pain medication. And disabilty. Almost everyone does it. Some sell the drugs to other people, and make a profit.
I'm proud to be a West Virginian. A southern West Virginian.
