Synonyms, antonyms, and related words for Chicago

A state that feels more like a large city surrounded by farmland. Most people who live in this state feel that it is divided into two areas--Chicago and Downstate. Although the official state capital is Springfield, just about everything gets done in Chicago. In fact, some out-of-staters actually believe that the capital of Illinois is Chicago. Because of this, and many other things, most "downstaters" resent everything and everyone from Chicago.

The Cross-Roads of America. The state that lies between Ohio ,Illinois, Kentucky and Michigan. The state is quaint and known for the Indianapolis 500 and the residents' fervant love of basketball. Considered by many to be a nowhere hole in the wall for rednecks etc., but oh well. And is also the namesake for one of the coolest film heroes of all time, Indiana Jones.

A hellish place, where the annoyances of culture come to thrive. Monotony or race is only superceded by monotony of architecture and planning. The dwelling place of the white race - which gives birth to several otehr problems. Ignorance, boredom, and depression are all symptoms of living in the suburbs, which explains why moody rock music listened to by suburban white teenagers is so predominant; these teenagers are convinced that they want their lives to be over when in fact they live in extreme comfort, albeit banal comfort, and suffer from the belief that noone else shares in their "pain-" i.e. the pain of being made fun of in school for wearing all black and losing your girlfriend of two weeks. The urban life provides for daily excitements that prevent idiotic social subcultiures to establish that are often established in the suburbs. For example, the culture of "wiggas", predominant in every suburb, are only established because the youth who practice it are not kept in check by the daily realities of urban life, i.e., black people to show these "wiggas" how dumb they are acting. In other words, these people are bored. High school cliques do not exist in inner city schools, where I attended, due to the fact that there are much more important things to worry about living in the city rather than being a "jock", a "prep", a "nerd", or a "skater". In fact, all students were united in this urban community by the fact that our lives were struggles, i.e. having only one parent, another parent in jail, drugs, welfare, violence, etc. It was not lauded and celebrated as the pop culture it has become in the suburbs, where boredom has provided for inner city life to be exalted as a means to escape the suburban monotony.
I'm bored in the suburbs, let's go act like 50 Cent.
