  • its cold,boring,lame,and i want to get the f**k out of here.lol..michigan .what a lovely state it is..
  • That's it's not considered normal. ...Oh, you don't mean state...of mind? Georgia...has verrry low test scores. Not everyone here is a stupid redneck. I don't know many Georgians who are. I guess that would be the worst.
  • (New York) Its reputation. I am here as a goodwill ambassador. I am quite friendly. And I promise not to cyber-mug you. LOL LOL
  • I would say that Seattle mostly, but WA I guess, the people here can be very passive agressive and as a born and bread Seattlite I can vouch for the same for myself, unfortunately. Also, the rain can be very annoying, but that IS why they call us the Emerald State.
  • Virginia The constant construction and the state is a maze. You can get lost even with a map. Roads here have 2 or 3 names which drives me NUTS.
  • The worst thing about my state is that I'm in a state of utter and abject despair and nobody seems to care. Is anybody going to help, or do I have to go to Yahoo?
  • Swale Borough Council's new 'alternate week' wheelie bin collection starting in the Summer. Also, the new 'Average Speed Check' camera being installed on the M20 (coastbound).
  • Maine - We are a "work at will" state. Employees have no rights here. Your boss can crap all over you (in front of others) and there is nothing you can do to stop it. I just found that out, the hard way.
  • Gym is required. To me, if gym is required, so should music and other art forms.
  • so many things! its religious and there are many restrictions .... lots of the roads are privatized or owned by other countries so we get charged to drive on them but that's where our registration money is supposed to go .... our governor wants to sell our lottery one good thing is that we don't have a state income tax, just plenty of sales tax
  • Pennsylvani- The worst thing about it? Well as I said it's Pennsylvania. You try finding exiting things about it- besides the Declaration of Independance being signed in Philidelphia in 1776, and the Steelers. The Declaration is pretty cool, but I really don't care about the Steelers.
  • The heat. I can tolerate temperatures up to 100, but above that, it's horrible. (Texas)
  • It's a 3 way tie. Public Education is appalling, the roads are horrible, and the people insist on trowing their trash all over; it's disgusting. I am from Louisiana.
  • (Ohio) The winters are cold, which isn't so bad, but it's the gray skies that get to me. I like my snow with bright blue skies. Ohioans really get into their sports teams. If they didn't sell team jerseys, I think half the population would be unclothed, and that wouldn't be a pretty sight!
  • Ah, Western Australia... probably the extreme racism towards the local Noongar people. I mean, even the word 'Noongar' itself is used as a derogatory term by some people. I think it's disgusting. That, and since it's the biggest state in Australia, it takes at the least three hours or more to get to one town from another. And there are too many white South Africans!
  • Its next to NJ.
  • Can i really only choose one thing?
  • (Florida) Bush cheated x(
  • The cost of housing here and the cost of living in general are very high. I live in N. California.
  • Pennsylvania here... the roads are horrible! potholes, cracks, bumps, dips. really plays hell on your vehicle alignment.
  • n.y,n.y,pot holes.
  • The heat. The staggering amout of tourists. The booming industrialization. The pollution. The gangs. The fact that less than half of my neighborhood has the ability to speak english. Florida isn't as fun as it's made out to be.
  • Texas is too red for my taste, if you get what I mean.
  • The worst thing about Victoria (Australia) is that it's not New York.
  • I live in Victoria, Australia, the state of looking into things. The government spends squillions on hiring colsultants and looking into things, but never comes up with any solutions!
  • The staggering amount of bigotry in Nebraska, much of it is subtle so as to be polite. However there is overt, hostile bigotry on display frequently as in racism, homophobia, and xenophobia. In some cases, it is enshrined in law and, in one instance, constitutional amendment.
  • NSW australia. The election this weekend, voting is compulsory and the two people to choose from are as bad as each other. I don't want either of them as head of my state!
  • Victoria, Australia. It's in the grip of a drought that's been going on for several years, tough water restrictions all over, and last summer some 5000 square miles of it got burned in bushfires It is all looking pretty parched!
  • West Virginia How we have been marked by the beverly hillbillies. The media usually don't help either because when a tragidy happens they will usually always pick the one out of the crowd that has no teeth, no common sense or any idea what cleaniness is. Not always but usually. I get amazed when we go on vacation how many times we don't fit the 'hick' look. They can't believe were from dat dare place,lol. Oh don't get me started on the damn movies.....WRONG TURN.. helloo even I was afraid to travel after that. We don't have inbreeds that look like that(that I know of) however thanks to the moth man prof. movie I now get sick going over the new river gorge thinking its going to fall for no reason.
  • Snow. It's evil... pure evil... it is evil incarnate...
  • (nj) the freakin nj Turnpike!!! if you've driven on it u know why.
  • New Hampshire It is expensive. Incredibly expensive. A tongue-in-cheek, yet fully accurate and satirical description of what's wrong with my state: http://www.urbanup.com/1978030
  • north carolina... the southeastern part hardly ever gets snow
  • Missouri is the worst thing about Missouri that I can think of. (that sentence didn't make sense, but read it again, slowly) Some of the high points are in the summer: It's miserably hot It's miserably humid It's miserably bug infested Some of the low points are in the winter It's miserably cold It's miserably humid It's Grey and brown and dead. I want to go home.
  • Indiana. I can think of two things: number one is we are called the Hoosiers. What the heck is a Hoosier? I live here and even I don't know. Secondly: We are one of the top states that has a lot of foreclosures on homes and properties. So if you plan to move here or buy any property in Indiana, don't get a double-wide or manufactured home and don't get an ARM loan!! (That's Adjustable Rate Mortgage).
  • New York (upstate)..high taxes and the snow!
  • ( New Jersey ) In the summer time when all the Bennies come to the beach and Infect the streets with traffic so it takes you an hour to find a parking spot.
  • 9.25% sales tax and 5% hotel tax. There is a proposed law in the legislature, to remove taxes from food, purchased in a grocery store. We need this.
  • The people, although the natural beauty is spectacular.
  • All the dang vampires
  • Connecticut - the tax everything state. Highest gas tax in the nation. State income tax, real estate tax, personal property tax, etc.... They would tax the air if the corrupt politicians spent time to think about it.
  • Jersey: The smell that I am unaware of. The overpopulation. The accents. (which I proudly have) JUGHANDLES! No left turns here.
  • NSW Australia has a terrible dental health system. Actually, it's terrible in Australia. Our dental health system is comapable to that of a third world country. If you don't have the money for private health insurance or to pay the dentist you are stuck with a system that has a 4 year waiting list. People resort to pulling out their own teeth with pliers, or tie it to the door knob. Disgraceful! It felt good to have a go at our government, thanks for this question ;)
  • Its the Meth capitol of the united states. out people have nothing better to do then to get high off the shit under your sink. Oregon Suxxx
  • The state of my hair, the state of my face, the state of my clothes, etc....! JamesD ;-) P.S. I live in England, UK!
  • The weather, and consequently the health of the people.
  • Rising property taxes!!! [Florida]
  • Massachusetts? We now know why its called "Taxachusetts"..Taxes are out of sight
  • New Jersey The cost of living, high taxes, corrupt politicians, long winters. 500+ towns, each with their own school system, police dept, town council, street dept, sewer and water authorities, etc. The possibilities for scamming money are endless. In addition, we have 21 counties that run their own show.
  • CA - crazy taxes!
  • it's "oregonization". the way they designed some of the streets here, i think they were just laughing the entire time at all the confusion they would cause! there's highways that have a name, a number, and a streetname on some parts, but if you keep driving, you'll find that the streetname may change. it sux getting directions from actual people because even som epeople who have lived here for 30 years don't know which highway numbers go with the names! (i.e. we have "capitol highway", which is also highway #10, i think, but is canyon road on parts of it...) also, there are street signs that are trying to say, lead you to the freeway. well, there's a number of these that if you follow them, you'll end up in suburbia! they'll leave out a cruicial point where you need to take a turn. (maybe we have a lot of stolen signs?) luckily, i've been here long enough to still find my way to where i am going ... mostly.
  • Well, the racism & The fact that it never snows (almost).
  • property taxes
  • the governater.
  • i live in Georgia. I hate that our state bird should be the sand gnat rather than the brown thrasher.
  • I'm in a state of confusion.
  • The weather during the summer is just horrendous (up to 120 degrees at times) besides this the weather is just perfect! Of course I'm referring to the great state of AZ which isn't always great, mind you.
  • CALIFORNIA The southern border.
  • California's constitution is much too long and covers way to many subjects necessitating a government that is far to big to function efficiently. Top that off with our out-of-control initiative process and it makes our political system the worst thing about our state. Everything else is wonderful!
  • Florida - They're called Hurricanes... and those damned bugs... ><
  • For West Virginia I would have to say the poverty. But a sad thing is that the state is so beautiful and since there are not many tourists, Knowone can see how much potential this state has.
  • Gordan Campbell our leader
  • Gordan Campbell our leader
  • In Texas, I say the heat, (in summer).
  • Two words: Arnold Schwarzenegger.
  • wisconsin, the days that are -30 or colder
  • I grew up in Alabama, and I've lived all over the country, but I will say that the worst thing about Alabama is the reputation. As soon as an Alabama native or convert opens their mouth, their brains fall out. Not actually, but in the minds of any non-Alabamaians standing around. The accent around southeast Alabama, called the Wiregrass Area, has to be one of the worst anywhere. I call it the "cornpone" accent, and I loathe it, My friends from there all have it, and I grew up having it but mostly shook it off over several decades of living around, but it lingers like a chancre. It still not as bad as the state's rep, however. Visually, it's a varied and beautiful state with very nice people, booming industries where they need to be, and lush agriculture where good crops and livestock grow healthy. Makes me wonder why I left, a little.
  • New Jersey I actually LOVE this state except the car insurance prices and when people come here and tell US we have an accent, then go the hell home you're only here to go to the beach and do 50 mph in the left lane anyway
  • We're above North Carolina, so we get the hurricanes.
  • (NYC, NY) The terrorist threats ALL THE TIME. It seems like every other day the FBI has uncovered a plan by terrorists to blow up the subways/bridges/tunnels/airports etc. It is quite frustrating when you work in the financial district and always have to see Men with Machine guns...you would think it would make you feel safe, but it really makes you think "What is it THIS time?".
  • Ted Kennedy and John Kerry
  • There are no oceans or mountains.
  • (VA) Probably the church-driven political-right attitude. And any one of us who doesn't follow suit is automatically classified as "wrong".
  • Rhode Island - taxes are high, corruption is high, housing prices are high, many of the teenagers are high... after reading everyone else's answers - it seems like we're all in the same sinking ship... I think the whole country needs a major overhaul.
  • Florida need I say more?
  • Here in Puerto Rico, USA Commonwealth: overpopulation (close to 4 million people in an island that is 100 x 35 miles in area, giving us the second or third highest population density in the whole planet) leads to unemployment, high crime rate, and to a lower and in some areas sinking standard of living. The one I hate the most is that people treat the island like if it is a trash dumpster. They throw garbage everywhere, even on the most beautiful beaches you may find anywhere on Earth. Thrash on the streets makes me really sick....
  • Currently the foreclosure rate! I live in Florida.
  • I will just say the heat. Anything else would turn into a hour long rant that no one wants to hear.
  • Since it's a very small island, there is not much space for buildings. Property costs A LOT! even a small apartment .. keeping in mind that our wages are not so good, one has to work much more than people in other countries, to get a house/somewhere to live in.
  • We have the infamous reputation of being the home of Al Fraken and Jess "The Body" Ventura...
  • It's one highway
  • Most people hate that it rains all day and almost every day. (Washington) But I LOVE it. :D
  • The department of children and families
  • Virginia - too damn close to DC, seems a ton of the stupidity rubs off.
  • Virginia State Laws. Some of them are ridiculous.
  • It can't be corrected with medicine
  • Teen pregnancy...welfare...white trash in general...
  • i would never live in america, but if i did, i would imagen it would be... its in america, and it has americans in it.
  • It's so cold in the wintertime.
  • John Edwards is our senator, and with his name, he is dragging North Carolina through the mud with each minute of media coverage.
  • Hicks. I mean, come on…. We had several historically relevant options for our state quarter, but we went with a race car and a basketball. What does that tell people about Indiana?
  • New Jersey - everthing
  • It is infested with Yankees.
