On my beer can it says brewed in Michigan. Have any goons visited Michigan? Do you drink beer? I really need to know more about Michigan.

Please tell me more about Wisconsin, Michigan, and anything except Chicago because I visit Chicago.

There was a small town hall on the way there and they were flying 3 flags: the US flag, the POW-MIA flag, and the Packers flag

My friend got catfished really hard by some chick in Michigan back in the Highschool MySpace days. She lives in some trailer park with her trump loving husband nowadays. Whenever we bring her up he still gets mad. Anyways, I hope that helps describe Michigan for you.

Last time I visited Michigan the highway was under construction so they set up an hour's worth of detour signs on side streets that just dumped us out in Ohio.

Michigan has Detroit.

Considering you hear nothing else about Michigan I assume Detroit is the highlight of the state and the rest is a true hellpit.

The winter is insanely bad and there are hicks everywhere, but the people are mostly very polite and resigned to living in a boring and isolated place. Lots of redneck Dems and Republican environmentalists, somehow

Michigan is cheap and the people are generally really nice but it also sucks complete rear end (will not be elaborating).

Try Oberon before it goes away if you want more Michigan beer though.

Hicks root for the Packers and everyone else roots for the Lions. That’s the extent of my knowledge of Michigan.

There's a big gently caress of lake near there. I don't know what it's called though. Maybe Lake Diarrhea.

This is true. The UP is also crazy beautiful and the closer you get to it, the more likely you are to find pasties (think chicken pot pie without the tin) for sale, which are loving delicious.

Why don't you perform zazen, facing a wall?


Grand Rapids has lots of beer OP, and is probably the least poo poo place to live in the state (not saying much)

Michigan is great to do outdoorsy poo poo in but sucks in most every other way. Tho I hear there is now weed which is cool

Hello I am also from Michigan and like that other poster I have extremely fond memories growing up there in the 90s, though now when I go back I'm just incredibly disappointed.

I grew up in West Michigan, the very white-sand-beach western side, not the Detroit side. As was said, the UP is Wisconsin and filled with ticks n' hicks, Lake Michigan is rad but cold and filled with lead, the state itself really fell apart in 2008 or so in a very real way.

Lake Effect snow and rusty domestic cars. That's Michigan.
