I didn’t post in the other one because I couldn’t decide what was worst about us, lol, but this one’s easy!

We have a ton of interstates. It’s why we had that hokey “Crossroads of America” license plate awhile back. I always thought everyone could drive 10-15 minutes to get to an insterstate, but apparently we have more than everyone else. It’s fantastic, and I love it :). It’s definitely better than having the most VPs born here, lol.

@jo.lee: Really??  I lived in IN for 18 years and I don’t think IN has very many interstates compared to everywhere else I’ve ever lived!  The whole “most VPs” thing that the map says is kind of interesting though.

I was surprised how many people on the other thread though that their states had the most meth labs.  IN takes the cake for that one, IMO.

ETA: Well darn, I was wrong.  Missouri actually beats us Hoosiers in meth lab incidents, but we take second!  And the two of us are head and shoulders above everyone else!

@Mrs.KMM: Huh, that’s weird! That’s what I’ve been told from several people? Maybe it just seems like more to the people in my area since I’m right by 65 and 465?

“most Average”  That is hilarious.  Not sure how that doing something best, if you do it average.

I’m very proud of my lowest obesity state.

@jo.lee: Yeah – I’ve lived 4 other places besides IN and in each place I’ve been within a 10-15 minute drive of 4 different interstates.  With IN it was only 2.

Well crap…lol. Now there’s absolutely nothing awesome about Indiana except that it’s where all my friends/family lives. 😉

Wait, MA was worst drivers before. Now we’re most college grads? Makes sense though since we have at least 100 colleges here.

It says Transit use, which is interesting because on the “worst” list, NY was worst for commute! I guess all those people using the transportation make for crowded trains and buses.

I also personally think that NY(C specifically) has the best pizza and bagels. And the best tap water!

@jo.lee: So I decided to scope out the awesome sourse that is wikipedia and supposedly Indiana has more miles of interstate per square mile than any other state.  So we do win at something!

Were definitely known for Hershey chocolate and Hershey Park… besides that we got some cool haunted places including Gettysburg and we have a lot of anthracite coal (which is what keeps Centralia burning) – which was one of the bases for the movie Silent Hill. Plus we have the Steelers in all their football glory (but I actually like the Ravens) haha.
