Yep, along with Meth, tornadoes on a weekly if not daily basis, Flash flooding, and all the BS politics of Detroit. There's a reason I'm trying to get back to the mitten. At least then I don't have to remodel on a yearly basis.

Yeah, you're right, Iowa is awesome. Corn, more corn, nothingness farm land, very very hilly and scenic, lots of cool places to go....like ummmm.....Every time I'm forced to go there all I want to do is smoke meth, fuck my sister, and hang myself with a belt.

Detroit is just one small part of Michigan no one ever has to go to.....you can't avoid the nothingness of corn in iowa.

Without farms I wouldn't have a job.
The lack of trees sucks but a little drive into Minnesota or whatever fixes that.

I do really miss rifle river rec area though.

Meth is everywhere. If meth and bad weather scare you, you should probably just stay in your basement and never leave.

Incorrect.

I may not have seen all of Iowa, but I have spent far too much time in Iowa.

Spent almost ten years here. I've found this article to be a fairly accurate representation of Iowa life.

Basically its what you'd get if you spread Metro Detroit across Iowa. Pockets of good, pockets of bad, but not enough good to outweigh the bad.

I love michigan. You should have gotten farther out of town than "dearborn" or "livonia". That is still to close to detroit.

Heck I am moving to chelsea and that is to close. I grew up between houghton lake and sault ste marie, and manistique. (moved around a bit). didnt have much of this "ghetto sprawl" of which you speak. I have been up there recently and still havent seen much of it. Just wish I could make the money I make down here up there...
