the most american place in america. its typical mid-america. full of really typical cities, a bunch of colleges, malls and even more typical suburbs. its kinda part of the midwest, but not really. ohio is bitter enemies with michigan, probably because michigan hicks have really awesome accents. the drivers and weather is no worse that where i usially live (chicago semi-suburbs)

all in all, ohio is everything in america jammed together, and its really beautiful.

A pretty cool state, really kind of average in every sense. Very demographically diverse from the inbred hicks of the southeast to the liberal jackasses in Yellow Springs. Home of many historic places and people, such as Marietta, the first settlement in America's Northwest Territory. Also home to eight U.S. Presidents. Birthplace of Wilber and Orvill Wright, and both John Glenn and Neil Armstrong. Home of the largest state university in America, The Ohio State University, boasting an enrollment of over 50,000 students. In campus population, it is surpassed only by the University of Texas. A place with suposedly bad drives, although I haven't noticed a big difference when travelling to other states. Oft-maligned and berated by other Americans for being too average. All around, a pretty sweet place.

Ohioan: Yeah.

Ohioan: You are an idiot.

One of the fastest growing states in the dying mid west. Columbus (it's capitol city) is the fastest growing cities in the Midwest. The cities of Cleveland and Cincinnati are both rebuilding after a decline and are actually gaining population. The buckeye state (Ohio) is the state that holds the rock and roll hall of fame, the pro football hall of fame, and cedar point (the most popular theme park in the Midwest).
The state has several pro teams and college teams. The state's greatest rivalry is Michigan, where they dump their trash. The smell of Michigan causes Toledo, Ohio, to not be the most loved city in Ohio. Michigan and Ohio are at a constant war, as Michigan is jealous of the great success Ohio has economically, demographically, and sports wise. The two states battle against each other in every sporting event. The college rivalry of Ohio State and Michigan is the ugliest in history. Ohio has recently been winning the match as the state increases in everything. The state of Michigan has declined in economy and demographically. The Blue and Gold has been covered by the Scarlet and Grey.
The state of Ohio attacks Michigan every time they can.
Ohio is the most beautiful star on the American flag.

Most people say the state Ohio fucking sucks, but honestly its not as bad as you think. Yes we have the most un-predictable weather humanly possible, but we're not all rednecks, and we're not all unintelligent. There may be a few idiots in Ohio, but thats not the entire population. Also, if you ever visit Ohio, DO NOT GO TO MANSFIELD. It has as many drug dealers as Detroit. And I am in no way trying to say that Detriot is a bad city, I'm just stating a fact. And not all of us think Michigan sucks. Personally, I like Michigan and I have lived in Ohio all of my life. And yes we have horrible drivers. Suprisingly thats one of the only bad things that Mansfield does not have for the most part. Also if you're in Mansfield DO NOT go down Adams St. part about 8 pm. It is extremely dangerous. If you do roll up your windows, lock the doors, and watch around you very carefully if you don't want to be shot. And if you see someone, DO NOT MAKE EYE CONTACT OR EVEN LOOK IN THEIR DIRECTION. IT IS A DEATH WISH.
In Ohio it can be raining at noon, sunny at 1, and then at 2 there will be a severe thunderstorm outside, and by 3 its sunny again.

A state that is a microcosm of the Eastern U.S. Although usually considered to be part of the Midwest, the northeastern part of the state seems more like the Northeast and the southern part of the state might as well be the South. Known for cultural diversity and corrupt government (e.g. the 2004 elections). Ohio like its neighboring Great Lakes states suffered more than anywhere else in the US from the deindustrialization and bad economic policies of the Reagan years and the ensuing globalization ever since, and is still suffering greatly.
Considering how Republicans have continually fucked up Ohio, I don't know why anyone who lives in the state votes GOP.

OHIO - We are round on the ends and High in the middle...... O-HI-O

Ohio is the best state to live in. Cities like New Philadelphia, where you can let your kids play in your own back yard and not have to worry about them as much as you would if you lived in New York City. It's a place where you can be proud of where you grew up. Did you know that....
-Marietta was Ohio's first permenent settlement.
-Wilbur and Orville Wright flew the first flight in North Carolina, but were from Ohio.
-Shoenbrunn which is located in New Philadelphia was Ohio's first school.
-The Wright Brothers, from Ohio, developed and flew the first airplane in 1903.
-First Ambulance systems were established in Cincinnati in 1865.
-Cleveland is the home of America's first traffic light.
-Akron was the first city to use police cars.
-Cincinnati was the first city to have a professional fire department.
-Ohio was the first state made out of the Northwest Territory.
-Cleveland was the world's first city to be lighted electrically.

Anyways - come visit Ohio - esp Tuscarawas County - If you don't like then you don't like - but you can't judge a book by it's cover.
Ohio really is the heart of it all.
