Redneck 1: "Oh... well, then you got any Skoal?"
redneck 2: " Hell yeah. It's in my truck over yonder, right next to the meth lab in the back!"
Indiana is very quaint and definately not Colorado or those mountain states. There is no geography or picturesque scenery. There is no mountains. No water. No shoreline. No beaches (beaches next to steel mills on Lake Michigan don't count). Nothing to do. No cool places to see, much less anything to write home about. No opportunities to get out and enjoy nature--that's why so many people are so fat. I don't like Michigan but at least it has opportunities to enjoy nature with its water, and it has a cool coolege town of Ann Arbor. I don't like Ohio either but at least it has 3 large cities: Columbus, Cleveland and Ciny. Columbus is quaint but sophisticated college town and Cleveland has the R&R Hall of Fame. Tennesssee at least has Graceland and numerous bars in Memphis while Nashville is the home of country music and the Grand Ole Opry. Illinois at least has Chicago, America's 3rd largest popuation center and an awsome world-class city. At least Pennsylvania has neat, historical Philadelphia. And at least Georgia has Atanata, which is quickly becoming an international center. But Indiana has NOTHING!!
It's 6.4 million Hoosiers (14th in population for some reason)as its people are called are also, fat, stupid, antiquated and unhealthy. Indiana consistently ranks among the worst states in education and ACT/SAT scores. Most people, like me, leave when they graduate from college, creating the brain drain. They leave because there are no descent, much less good-paying jobs for college graduates. The people are also stupid. They refuse to get out of their antiquated thinking to change anything, even when it behooves their state. They consistently yell about taxes that are wisely used to improve the state's antiquated roads. They routinely and ignorantly blame their good Governor for the good things he has done for Indiana is the past several years. Like I said, the people don't like any change, even when good. Hoosiers also have among the highest rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and smoking. Hoosiers are also racist and generally talk bad about blacks (who comprise 12% of the state) and Hispanics, especially Mexicans.
Like I said, Indiana is good for nothing and is a dull, boring, drab, lifeless cornfield hell. IT is a terrible place to live in general. I grew up there until I was 23 when I found a good job, and will NEVER return. Good riddence. If only I could get my family out of there.
Indiana is a very pathetic place and a bad place to live in general. No part about it is even remotely progressive (although the city of Carmel, a suburb of Indianapolis, is really nice) when compared to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Maryland, Northern Virginia or North Carolina. Even Indianapolis itself (ironically called Naptown) isn’t very progressive either when compared to areas like Austin, Texas or Raleigh Durham, North Carolina and the like—I’m a native of Indianapolis and even saying this. First, the state’s economy is very mediocre and antiquated. There are very few high-paying or high-tech jobs. The state has lost the most jobs of anywhere except for three other states. It has too many declining Rust Belt cities. Incomes are low and not growing much (perhaps this explains the affordable cost of living). At present, many large Indiana companies are either downsizing, merging with a larger out-of-state company, being bought out, leaving the state or just going out of business all together. In my opinion, this makes Hoosierville a terrible place to do business. Secondly, education is awful while SAT/ACT and ISTEP scores are worsening. Indiana suffers from the brain drain as the state’s young and educated leave the state for attractive job opportunities in other states and do not return (I am one of them). And IPS (Indianapolis Public Schools, the state's largest school district) has the nation’s second-highest dropout rate. Thirdly, the people are very narrowminded, unmotivated and don’t want to change. Perhaps that’s why the state is in its current condition. The people would rather bitch and moan and blame their politicians than get off their lazy duff and take the personal responsibility to change anything. Fourthly--and speaking of lazy, the state ranks among the top states for diabetes, heart disease, obesity and smoking due to the unhealthy and lazy lifestyle of Hoosiers. Who can blame them, because there are not really many opportunities to get out and enjoy nature? And fifthly, it takes FOREVER to get anything done from road construction, to building something, to passing legislation.
Indiana certainly won’t be on the Forbes list of “most educated,” “hippest,” “coolest” or “fittest” places. To sum it up, Indiana is nothing but a boring, lifeless cornfield hell with unmotivated and unhealthy people, with hardly any good jobs anywhere, and nothing to do. Indiana is the largest suburb of hell!
