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.
Connecticut is:

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.

A state that everyone assumes holds rich assholes. You're wrong. As a resident in Connecticut you see both good and bad. Sure, we're home to Fairfield County but we're also home to Bridgeport and New Haven: Two cities that are heavily populated and have a pretty bad rap. Most people think if you live in Connecticut you're so rich but in reality he have some major problems too. So before you rag on Connecticut why don't you know what you're talking about?Sure Connecticut has some rich snobs but we also have Whole Hearted Genuine people that are like everyone else.
Connecticut is full of all different people with different financial statuses.

Possibly one of the most bipolar states in the nation. We love ourselves. No one cares who we are. Known for it's ability to piss people off by flaunting it's statistics and hiding how bad some of the inner cities are. Always first to deny how many jobs are lost but first to report the craziest news they can find - rampant chimpanzees, guys hacking off limbs, power plants exploding, you name it. Way more diverse than it's given credit for, but admittedly people tend to live in similar-race clusters. We have the preps on one end and an wannabe ghetto explosion on the other. We've got Yale to make us look good and Three Rivers for everyone who didn't make it. We have no teams of our own so we can fight over other states' and the biggest in-state game of the season is girl's college basketball. Drive through and you'll see the sprawling mansions and dilapidated cities within miles of each other, see the casinos we use to keep the money flowing in but notice that none of it ever seems to come back out. We fight over the most idiotic things - mad or wicked? Who honestly cares? - and always define ourselves by whether we come from the West or East side of the state. It's a perfect split between 'good' and 'bad' - it all just depends on what side you want to see.
Connecticut - Skyy for the rich and Dubra for the poor. Is it nice? Sometimes. Does it suck? Depends on where you are.

Someone get the state some seroquel.

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.

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?

New Jersey.

Well, that explains the smell.
