Ya gotta wonder about Indians. Always walking, sitting, sleeping, playing, and riding bicycles on railroad tracks! But worse yet, amassing huge crowds on the right of way! What the fuck?

And it's not just once in a while, it's all the fuckin' time! Haysoos Keyryst!

Indiana. Not much happening in the state. At all. In fact not much goes on there. Ever! It's one of the US's most boring state. Next to Nebraska, Indiana has no redeeming qualities to speak of. Oh wait, maybe that nickname, "The Hoosier State"! Does anybody, even Indianans have no clue what is an, or who's a hoosier!

No kidding!

Then there's this:

Etymology

Indiana's welcome signs feature the state motto "Crossroads of America."

The state's name means "Land of the Indians", or simply "Indian Land".[8] It also stems from Indiana's territorial history. On May 7, 1800, the United States Congress passed legislation to divide the Northwest Territory into two areas and named the western section the Indiana Territory. In 1816, when Congress passed an Enabling Act to begin the process of establishing statehood for Indiana, a part of this territorial land became the geographic area for the new state.[9][10][11]

A resident of Indiana is officially known as a Hoosier.[12] The etymology of this word is disputed, but the leading theory, as advanced by the Indiana Historical Bureau and the Indiana Historical Society, has "Hoosier" originating from Virginia, the Carolinas, and Tennessee (a part of the Upland South region of the United States) as a term for a backwoodsman, a rough countryman, or a country bumpki

In Indiana, it was said that it was a variation of people calling out, "Who's there?" I never ever read anything about it coming from the parts of the country that you cite.

Not quite sure what this posting is all about, I lived there for thirty years and I wasn't happy with everything, but it wasn't a bad place to live. Quite peaceful and affordable, too.

Hey, what makes North Dakota or Iowa exciting? Arkansas, other than two more letters than Kansas. And what about Kansas? At least, we weren't Mississippi or Alabama, two more places I'd want no part of.
