I think about women, mowing the lawn, paying bills, women, work stuff, dinner, women, etc.

Those are the facts. Mississippians are so insular, I'm not sure if they care much about anything outside their own social and political milieu either.
Ahhh, so THOSE are the facts.
Yeah yeah, I remember now, there was that $20 million survey sponsored by Gallup and CNN, very in depth and statisticaly sound - they went to each house in Mississippi and asked it's residence what they new about Connecticut. The results were nothing less than SHOCKING.

You can leave this forum now.

It was over rated. Not as good as I thought it would be.

I think this one is most accurate. I think a lot of people only think of that little area of CT that is next to NCY. That's like NYC because the residents work in NYC and just sleep in CT, but the rest of CT is largely middle class and working class with a few wealthy suburban areas. That western part of the state is called Fairfield County and it's not representative of CT at all.

OMG, love this post, especially that quote. I grew up in Mississippi, now live in North Carolina, but getting the hell out of the south. I'm moving to Maine, and I hope you're wrong about the "vile, pushy ideologues" part. We've found the people in the small towns in mid-coast Maine, in our admittedly limited experience of 3 visits, to be friendly and smart. You can find at least one independent book store in amost every one, and that says a lot, imho. The tiny town of Belfast had 3, at least when we visited 3 years ago. And of course, the people in the northern (very rural) part of Maine are a different kettle of fish, I've been told. But Oregon would probably be my second choice of place to move to.
The people in Maine are lovely. They aren't associated with the whole "northeast attitude" many describe. I just got back. I've been going to Maine my whole life. You MUST check out the beaches of southern coastal maine. Especially Ogunquit.

I think about other places. Why is it most Americans lack curiousity and geographical, socio-economical, etc knowledge of other places, even thei own country?
