Connecticut: Best known for its wealth... mostly in Greenwhich and Westport (where I live). Yeah, we have all the top fasihons, the best (real) bags, the hottest shoes, and yes, we pop our collar. We, however, aren't snobs, even though we grow up surrounded by abnormally expenisve stuff. We are close to New York, and we don't think that New Jersey is terrible... yea, so, we do have more than one house, and ridiculously expensive cars, and our school is, as my fellow westportian stated, HUGE. But, living in this state isn't all great... outside of Yale, New Haven is a dump, and the majority of Connecticut isn't so wealthy/nice. I can't speak for other parts of Connecticut, but I can say this for Westport... we have a GREAT school system, and mostly our IQ is up there, people go to great schools, so what if they do it in high fashion... unfortunatley we also have a really high drug abuse/use rate, which isn't slowing. Our town is nice, but overall, seeing the same brands/cars/hairstlyes/shops is boring. And yea, most of us are happy right here, In Connecticut...
"nice uggs, get them recently?"
"yea, I have them in every color now"
"Are you from Connecticut?"
"You people are so rich"
"no we aren't"....(thinks about it) "ok, maybe just a little"
According to U.S. News and World Report 2003 - Connecticut is THE RICHEST STATE in the nation and always has been by per capita new worth, average income, and cost of living. It's amazing how uneducated someone is to say New Jersey (which most everyone would agree is the nation's asshole) would be richer. Have fun peasant, New Jersey is 6th. Get castrated before you reproduce and your uneducated middle-low class spawn infect any more of the planet.
Nice Prada shoes. Are you from Connecticut?
Why yes, where are you from?
Well, that explains the smell.

Connecticut (abbrev.- CT) is one of the original 13 colonies. It is a crossover of Massachusetts and New York, but is still part of New England. Not everyone is a rich, stuck up asshole like people seem to think, it is an actual state with actual problems and benefits. There are arrogant snobs who put down on people, but those can be found anywhere.
The Nutmeg State
Part of New England
A Pleasant (but boring) State To Live In
Stop ripping on states you haven't lived in, it's annoying.
- Richest state
- Highest average IQ at 115
- State which gives the least to charity
Also, the dumbass that said New Haven had nothing but giant houses is a dumbass. Try leaving the Yale area before opening your mouth.
50 Cent has a house in Connecticut
All of you who think that Connecticut is just where snobby rich kids come from, you're wrong. Yes, about half the people here are asses. But the other half are normal people who just want to live free of sterotypes! The good half of us drive regular cars, not beat up 20 year old cars, but not BMWs and Mercades. We aren't super poor, or super rich. The averages may say that we are one of the richest, but that doesn't mean all of us are rich.
Shut the fuck up about Connecticut being super rich snobs or out of the way hicks. We have a diverse population just like any other state. You ignorant bitches are just listening to sterotypes.
My home state...where New Yorkers go to turn off their brains, where NYC business men keep their mistresses, and the nutmeg state. We also have the highest IQ, highest cost of living, one of the highest teen heroin usage levels, and, of course, nutmeg.
We all just really want to get out of Connecticut
