          Small towns aren't comfy. It's old people and cliquish trailer trash. And the jobs suck, such that you aren't really better off cost of living-wise.

            I'd consider Springfield OH a "small town" and yeah there is plenty to do if you can socialize with people and share hobbies that aren't "I like to go COOM in SEA". Hell most conversations SighSee would love because small towns would love to talk about how biden and the government suck. The amount of knowledge people end up gathering in small towns can often shock you and if you're willing to put yourself out there and be willing to be part of their community you'll never run out of things to do.
            > And the jobs suck, such that you aren't really better off cost of living-wise.
            What's so hard about getting a remote SysAdmin job and banking 80k/yr in a place where most combined salaries are ~70k. Besides once you buy a house the overall income really doesn't matter that much. I bank something like 5-6k/mo with my remote job and travel around 6-8 months out of the year, only coming home in winter to recertify, work out, check on the house, and plan my next year.

      the midwest gets misinterpreted as boring when it's actually just safe and wholesome.

    People don't hate it. This board hates it because they need a car to get around most places and simply being white doesn't get all eyes on you. Midwest/Great Plains are fine places if you're extroverted but outside the major cities, you'll be in for hell on earth finding friends if introverted. It's a fine area if you can get a remote job, plenty of cheap living in those areas, but to enjoy most the cities you'll need a car; Any city under ~100k won't have any bus system.

        Most of middle America (apart from Colorado) is dull. The American heartland does not have a leisure culture; leisure happens with friends & family at home, not downtown. Most towns are very lifeless, with people only coming into town to do business, and that rarely on Main Street these days. The Midwest is the only region of America that I haven't explored in all my years of wandering around America. But some parts of the Midwest are quite appealing, so I'd like to visit them just as the warm summertime weather arrives and everyone heads outside to have fun. Some of the more appealing towns have more of a fitness culture, with greenway trails and good public parks.

        It's not all like that. Simply look at which parts of the region are growing; those are the desirable parts. The shrinking towns and cities are either sad & lifeless or shitholes, if there is a significant black population.

        Cope. The Midwest is peak burgerpunk despairporn doomer aesthetic at it’s finest. Some slightly less shitty but still very boring pockets don’t change that. In the future there will be a Chinese bald and bankrupt streamer walking around the Midwest talking to old lot lizards instead of bubushkas but unlike Bald he’ll probably be killed in action. Also your muh white shit is moronic. Midwestern whites who don’t leave are some of the lowest quality people the world has to offer. Anyone worth anything leaves ASAP. Also, imagine cherrypicking and selling the region with Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, and Gary as muh white, lmao

          You can pick from heat or cold.

          You gotta understand probably 9 out of 10 anons probably are in their mid-late 20's still living at home with their aging parents in places they would have no chance affording if not for bumming off said parents good will as an adult. Most probably work some remote job or have enough free time without rent to save up some allowance or play the crypto game for some small winnings to travel every now and again. I think outside some military anon I bumped into there was only one other anon who moved out and had a stable job when we got to talking most everyone else in the group either was a cagie living at home or had a crypto fund.

          When you realize less than 10% of all anons here are actually even thinking long term investments, local safety, income to cost of living ratio, tax rates, and so on; the thread makes perfect sense. The 4% rule is fricking dead and most people here are mostly on a downward spiral of savings 'but waiting for the next big crypto boom!', most aren't considering land and proper equity in their long term goals. Why people with so much crypto can't or straight up won't invest in property often confused me until I realize they live at home or store all their shit with mom and dad at 30.

          While the midwest may not be GOAT it's far better for your average anon who wants to put in a decent stable investment for long term planning. With more jobs finally pulling out of high cost of living coastal states the midwest is going to be consistently growing. However maybe someone here has some secret sauce they know about but for me knowing my house will be a decent resell when I am 60-70 and will have not paid some landlord for an apartment I don't own; I can sleep very well at night.

          Living alone & friendless in a cheap house in the middle of nowhere America sounds like a sure recipe for suicide, though I guess if you spend your whole day working to pay the mortgage and working to customize and improve the house, you can ignore the existential issues for a while. Personally, I'd rather live in hotels for $6000/year. They are comfy and worry-free; I can enjoy the amenities of urban living as well.
          And no, housing is not automatically a good financial investment anywhere you go. Many shrinking regions of America are a buyer's market only. However, good fertile land, a solid home, and dependable neighbors is definitely a good investment if you expect a coming collapse to force a return to self-sufficiency.

            Great projecting there anon glad you already have no idea what your talking about. Yeah if I never went to the gym after work, out to some bars on a weekend, didn't participate in any events around town, or have hobbies I'd probably also hate it. I don't think most people here are looking to move into Liberty Kansas or some sub 10k village.
            >you can ignore the existential issues for a while. Personally, I'd rather live in hotels for $6000/year.
            Didn't know owning a house instantly meant you can't have any travel, why not do what many others have done and gotten a room mate to keep eyes on things+pay the bills+side money. I'm fairly certain other anons have mentioned something similar ITT.
            > However, good fertile land, a solid home, and dependable neighbors is definitely a good investment if you expect a coming collapse to force a return to self-sufficiency.
            In a house all I need to worry about is my personal property tax at the end of the year which really isn't that much.

            If the economy tanks I only have to worry about that+ utilities, which really isn't that much all things considered. Appose to an apartment where you may need proof of income to even house yourself+absurd monthly costs. Not ideal for an economic down turn.

            >And no, housing is not automatically a good financial investment anywhere you go.
            No one ever said this but generally compared to the rate of inflation it is, especially if you can pay off the house quickly. It will only out pace inflation in the long haul unless you buy in some shithole like Little Rock.

          Think of the my boring place on earth and it doesn't even come close to how boring the Midwest actually is. I'll specifically speak to Iowa, but everywhere is not far off.
          There is never anything to do. The land is completely flat. In winter it's fricking cold, as cold or colder than Siberia. But Siberia has a beautiful countryside (I've been). Iowa has nothing. Most trees are planted by farm houses to keep the wind from blowing away their place. In summer it's fricking way too hot outside because it's so humid and miserable from all the corn. Not like there's anything to do though. What small lakes they do have are filled with lake homosexuals who think they are better than you since they own a cottage on a lake that gets sewage leakage from the city (Clear Lake).
          Everyone is fricking fat too. Going to Iowa State can be summed up to my experience of going to a local bar. I saw two girls surrounded by 20 dudes all trying to get their attention. It was pathetic. I even called a fat girl fat in high school and all the girls of my class black listed me from dating. I didn't even realize why until years after graduation.
          I honestly thought I was an incel until I left and found out I wasn't. The South really is better.
          Eastern Iowa is filled with people fleeing Chicago (black and White). They bring their moronic mentally with them.

          There is literally nothing to do in Iowa. Absolutely nothing.

          Professional jobs are all locked in at Des Moines or Cedar Falls. Their communities are small and everyone knows everyone. Don't like how your employer treated you? you'll be black listed as everyone knows everyone.

            Anon most people here aren't discussing living in Mt Pleasant Iowa where unless you grew up there is frick all to do other than frick and drink. I think it's fair to say anyone discussing living in the midwest is going to choose to live around a city with at least a population of 50k, and bigger cities living on the out parts of town. No one here is actively thinking of buying the farm just yet.

            I like the Midwest because I can leave for 6-8 months overseas then come back and not have to constantly worry if my place was visited by squatters or "urban youth" during my leave. All while paying a fraction of the cost of living on the coast like I grew up on.

                Read the post you replied to. Most midwest cities are still very segregated to this day, it's vastly different compared to LA, NYC, Etc where you get a mix in every neighborhood. If you're incapable of doing any research or knowing the term "wrong side of the tracks", you're hopeless.

                >I like the Midwest because I can leave for 6-8 months
                that is exactly what you said you gaslighting midwestern homosexual.
                I live in a place I never want to leave, the Swiss Alps.

                No shit, where was anyone actively saying it was better than the Swiss Alps. Why are you even bothering in this thread? That's like going "Yeah well LA isn't like living in Tokyo. LA is so fricking dirty!". Obviously the midwest isn't the crowning holy land of people to live in, though compared to much of the places to live in the USA it's very appeasing to those wanting stability and afordability.

                Grats you live in the Alps there buddy.

                Midwest isn't different in this regards, all cities are heavily segregated especially LA and NYC. I've lived in 13 different cities all of the country and without fail people of different racial/ethnic/economic background segregate into their own respective communities.

                Trying way too hard or you've clearly never been to either the midwest or those cities. LA and NYC have minorities living next to your average white family unless you're very very well off to near gated level communities or communities with such HOA's the become almost near gated. In the midwest say, St. Cloud, Fargo, Springfield OH, Green Bay, or Lincoln; you have one side of the tracks and the other. Most the cities I listed you can get decent paying jobs with a very favorable income to cost of living.

                The Mexicans and Blacks, almost always funnel to their neighborhoods or select corners of the area.

                He's way more right than you are. You're being very careless with language in particular counting any level of mixing at all as "not segregated" which hasn't been a meaningful metric since the 60s while carelessly comparing massive cities with a 50k exurb of Dayton.

                The main difference in the midwest is that there are fewer non-blacks or non-mestizos that aren't white Christians (or ex-christians).

                Just not the case. At least not in a meaningfully ethnic way. Minorities do successfully integrate into white communities but there's usually only a few that are really a full mixture.

                Boston is a good example there, where you have a diversitopia in Cambridge, where Harvard and MIT recruit from all over the world regardless of race or ethnicity and you wind up with a very filtered, select population but a diverse ethnic makeup. Walk around Harvard Square and you'll see Arabs and Africans and Chinese and Slavs and Nords and Anglos and Meds and Latin Americans all mingling together. But walk about four miles to the southeast and you'll either be in Black Dorchester or Irish Southie. Go southwest and you'll find yourself in Brookline and Newton which is dominated by israelites along with Whites and successful Asians. You'll find close to zero blacks in Newton.

                Boston is a unique case. There's no other place in the US I'm aware of that still has an "irish" neighborhood.

                In LA, btw, what's happened over the last 30 years is neighborhoods have become black AND mexican OR asian AND white.

                Doesn't really change the point that the Cambridge-style high-diversity mix is the exception to the rule. Even ruling out Southie or counting it as white (a good number of non-Irish whites live there), there's an obvious divide between white and black zones, with a couple of Hispanic zones thrown in for good measure (Chelsea, Lynn, Lawrence, etc). Most areas are white with a smattering of minorities. Pretty similar to the midwest.
                >black AND mexican OR asian AND white
                You can see that trend in the NY Times NYC map somewhat also, though it's more complex. Which is part of the problem trying to compare NYC to the midwest. Because with NYC you have 20 million people crammed into the metro area, what counts as a distinct neighborhood tends to be a little different from some midwestern exurbs. 50k people is handful of blocks in NY, where it's a whole city in rural midwest.

                They aren't, though. It's the exception to the rule in all cases. You'll find lots of hispanics and whites living near each other in the midwest, too. It's just that there are fewer hispanics on average (though that is changing). The NYC map mostly solid greens or green+red, solid blues and solid oranges.

                Again part of the problem is with your really stupid definitions of segregation that somehow think that a hispanics living next to whites in neighborhood transition areas in NY City means there aren't massive patterns of segregation that are far more dominant as it relates to the actual experience of people living there.

I live in the basin near the coast in a very good neighborhood (mostly white and asian) and there's STILL Black person gang crime that occurs a few blocks away at a local mall. I watched a group of "youths" rob a chick fil a across the street from where I work a few weeks ago. While yes there are cities and city parts that are "very diverse" and are concentrated shitholes the gangs spread out here and have a hold in most cities, even the good ones.

I have been giung to Okoboji all my life and it is a nice lake. Too many ultra wealthy people are ruining it now. We also go to Prairie du Chien in the fall. Thats Wisconsin but right on the border.

                Arizona is amazing in the winter. IDK what you're talking about because 60 degrees and sunny and is amazing its hilarious to see the AZ natives bundled up in parkas and ugg boots. Even if the temps dip to freezing at night its very nice just wear a coat. Prescott even is beautiful in the winter, not too cold with a little snow sometimes.
                The only thing that sucks is how WINDY it gets and blows dust around.
                And yeah the cost of living got out of hand. AZ was amazing 10 years ago because it was like 1/4 the price of living in CA but paid almost the same and now its almost the same cost.

It's going to exceed what people who currently only to IRA's or other shit like "muh 4%" meme are now behind in. Land and property ownership is still amongst the most solid out there, not to mention a possible passive income should you lease some rooms out.

                Even if I was back out west living in AZ I'd just be losing money when I take 6-8 months off to go abroad for a while. The housing market out there was completely fricked by covid and HOA's, not a thing in in most the midwest. HOA's don't have to be enforced to keep out "those people".

                Yeah, this is a travel board. I travel for work, it's fairly smart to invest in property in a state where there is no state income tax+low cost of living and just max your savings. Having equity is pretty invaluable especially if your remote job gets axed in a round of layoffs. I could basically just go home and with my savings basically live for a few years doing piss all till I found another remote gig.

                And the cost of land / housing is stupid cheap, so it really doesn't matter. You can grab a <100k house in Cedar rapids IA, that's for this board +75% white, it doesn't matter. You're still paying far less than the morons who buy a 350k+ housing in Cali that might get you 900 sq ft, with a "lower tax bracket" per year on your property.

                Hell with 120-150k, if you bought a house around Dayton OH or St. Cloud MN. The market is so cheap that the big "Uhhh tax bros?" it really doesn't matter unless you're planning to actively go NEET mode. This board and biz fail to also realize cost of living being a huge factor, where in the midwest you're cost of living and goods is often far lower than states with the lowest property tax.

                Looking up city-data and crime stats it's still far lower than anything that I live by. I would be paying 600k+ with an HOA to have those crime stats even remotely similar. 80k is a fricking steal

            I live out in the country west of Des Moines. I have timber and pasture. I have a few small towns around me that are OK. I can be in downtown Des Moines in about a half hour.

            I went to U of I in Iowa City and the girls were hot. I had a great time. I never really like Ames either though. Clear Lake is a cool town but the lake sucks. I have been giung to Okoboji all my life and it is a nice lake. Too many ultra wealthy people are ruining it now. We also go to Prairie du Chien in the fall. Thats Wisconsin but right on the border. The drive there is incredibly boring.

            Overall I like it but winter sucks. If I ever retire I will buy a condo in Arizona and never see winter again

            >Iowa has some of the highest fricking taxes in America
            Unfortunately he's right but passed legislation has that burden being reduced starting in 2024.

            And the cost of land / housing is stupid cheap, so it really doesn't matter. You can grab a <100k house in Cedar rapids IA, that's for this board +75% white, it doesn't matter. You're still paying far less than the morons who buy a 350k+ housing in Cali that might get you 900 sq ft, with a "lower tax bracket" per year on your property.

            Hell with 120-150k, if you bought a house around Dayton OH or St. Cloud MN. The market is so cheap that the big "Uhhh tax bros?" it really doesn't matter unless you're planning to actively go NEET mode. This board and biz fail to also realize cost of living being a huge factor, where in the midwest you're cost of living and goods is often far lower than states with the lowest property tax.

            >You can grab a <100k house in Cedar rapids IA, that's for this board +75% white

        Finland is just like the Midwest then. Young guys in small towns do the exact same thing called a “kylärinki” where they just aimlessly drive back and forth in the tiny little center of their town in cars or mopeds hoping something interesting is happening. Chatting with some drunk old man smoking a cigarette is usually the highlight of the afternoon. I’d still take that over living near “diversity”.

      Pretty accurate from my experience. I lived in Minnesota for two years and the only thing I'll add is the amount of beautiful blonde girls that tan super well once the summer finally hits is really nice. I would meet strangers at the gas station or grocery store who would just want to talk about their weekend. Super friendly people but I lived in a nice area. Worst part were the Somalians. They all have no jaw and stink so they're pretty miserable to be around. All in all I would live there if I had to but it's so flat and depressing 8-9 months of the year. Literally nothing to do but lake activities and drink outdoors. Or just drive around the fields I guess.

          It really only dips that cold in the tundra places where there is nothing to stop the wind and even then, you know that shit's coming and plan for it. Hell most apartments and condo's out here are required to pay for heating the building due to some extremes in winter. Those -50F things last for a few hours if that long, usually around 3-4am and then go back up. Still cold shit during a blizzard but complaining about cold in winter is lol.

          The best parts of the midwest are the community, immigrants to the US not being nogs on welfare, schools not suffering from "highschoolers shouldn't do math because das racis", people who won't spout tons of bullshit because in the big city they don't have to back shit up, and low cost of living with decent jobs. I live in fargo and sure, not seeing the mountains each morning is a bit of a bummer but honestly I forgot about it all the time. Being able to walk home from the bar at night without needing to question if I need a gun or pocket knife is good enough for me.

      Most of middle America (apart from Colorado) is dull. The American heartland does not have a leisure culture; leisure happens with friends & family at home, not downtown. Most towns are very lifeless, with people only coming into town to do business, and that rarely on Main Street these days. The Midwest is the only region of America that I haven't explored in all my years of wandering around America. But some parts of the Midwest are quite appealing, so I'd like to visit them just as the warm summertime weather arrives and everyone heads outside to have fun. Some of the more appealing towns have more of a fitness culture, with greenway trails and good public parks.

      It's not all like that. Simply look at which parts of the region are growing; those are the desirable parts. The shrinking towns and cities are either sad & lifeless or shitholes, if there is a significant black population.

      Seems people are moving to warmer climates besides moving for jobs and better landscapes.

    The larger cities in the mid-west are filled with poor blacks and have serious violent crime problems. Chicago, St Louis, Detroit, Cleveland, Kansas City, Little Rock Arkansas, Tulsa, Rockford Illinois, Kalamazoo, Milwaukee, South Bend, Cincinnati, Flint, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Lansing, Akron, Toledo, Dayton, Peoria, Witchita, and Springfield Missouri all routinely rank among the top 25 most violent cities in the US.

    Besides the crime, there aren't a lot of good national parks. A giant glacier flattened the entire place 10,000 years ago, so there aren't any mountains, and therefore no skiing to enjoy during the terrible winters. It's so flat that storms are really bad and they get tornadoes. Truthfully, the only large mid-west city worth visiting is Chicago. The first time I drove across country, I planned to stop at the St Louis arch, but when I pulled off the highway, it was so ghetto that I didn't even slow down. I just got back on the highway and kept driving.

      No one smart in the midwest lives in those insanely segregated spots of the city. Something people from the west coast always forget is the white flight that happened and racks those numbers in to the city names. Most always the people in those crime areas don't leave their areas and you know just not to go into them. If you have rolled a 0 perception in life then you're going to find out the hard way.

        This. Milwaukee, for instance, is half black but has Jim crow-tier segregation. The blacks live north and west of the interstate and you can buy a 2-3BR house there for $50-100k. They have a gunshot detection network wired in those neighborhoods and there are probably 5 shootings reported every night. East of the interstate and 5 miles from the city is almost all White and some of the best bang for your buck in the US. The aggregate stats keep out coastal morons (who never learning their lesson would be aghast to learn if such segregation anyway)

          The situation is quite similar on the coast most of the time. The larger cities and greater concentration of Asians muddies things a bit but you can see clearly from the map of NYC posted up in the thread(

          >LA and NYC have minorities living next to your average white family
          Just not the case. At least not in a meaningfully ethnic way. Minorities do successfully integrate into white communities but there's usually only a few that are really a full mixture.

          Boston is a good example there, where you have a diversitopia in Cambridge, where Harvard and MIT recruit from all over the world regardless of race or ethnicity and you wind up with a very filtered, select population but a diverse ethnic makeup. Walk around Harvard Square and you'll see Arabs and Africans and Chinese and Slavs and Nords and Anglos and Meds and Latin Americans all mingling together. But walk about four miles to the southeast and you'll either be in Black Dorchester or Irish Southie. Go southwest and you'll find yourself in Brookline and Newton which is dominated by israelites along with Whites and successful Asians. You'll find close to zero blacks in Newton.

            I think one difference is that unlike what that anon linked, the segregation in midwest cities keep the most shit in those "wrong side of the tracks". Where as in Chicago, NYC, LA, etc all the shit spills over into your neighbor there where as in smaller cities and towns that shit is almost 100% silo'd into their shit zones. Cops tend to know everyone and what's going on in these smaller midwest towns; the same goes for the people knowing who's who.

            Growing up in a similarly sized metro along the coast of VA we still have stupid shit all over, moving to the midwest? Never have to wonder what parts of towns are sketch or not, you just fricking know in about a day what the lay of the land is.

Most will stick into a small neighborhood or be situated around the college if there is one in town; which generally the college will make up most the % of said towns ethic groups in that case.

          >but there still is nothing to DO!
          If you've lived in a smaller city, outer metro, or large-ish town; it's really not hard to be social and make connections faster than the cities I've found. At least I don't constantly have to wonder what the person saying to me is bullshit talk vs actual down to earth conversation. That's probably the worst shit about cities is how literally everyone's made it so big but still get pissy at their bar tab after drinking PBR.

    The Midwest was once totally smooth. No friction at all. There were many Native American tribes that met their end by slipping and sliding all the way to the Rocky Mountains, where they crashed and were broken against the rocks. European explorers largely met the same fate, until Lewis and Clark personally planted 5 trillion square miles of cornfield to give the land friction. The work was hard, and there were many Native American tribes that tried to stop them from sealing the land beneath corn, but they eventually made it. The skinwalkers adapted, as they always will. They learned to camouflage themselves and hunt the settlers that build their homes from the corn. Those that escaped the yellow fields were recruited into the CIA and FBI.

    There's a number of reasons, but mainly because they make for a good oblivious punching bag with no ammo. The South insulting "Yankies" doesn't work so good when the Mid-Altantic/New England is obviously more successful than them in most pursuits. Therefore, going after the humbler Yankee states makes more sense. The Mountain States can go after them because mountains are more titilating to the 90% than wetlands and fields. The West Coast can go after them because Indiana is a reverse California in every way that matters, even when you compare rural parts. New England can go after them because despite having the same "vibe" as Pennsylvania, they aren't 350 year old states.
    Lastly, the Midwest doesn't care about state competition so they won't really hit back. This is all avoiding the obvious race resentment angle, but that's often unconscious.

      Doomerism is a Midwestern invention. Europeans fled the 19th century revolutions for a place where they could live their simple lives in peace. The road to success was paved with the fear of God, the dignity of hard work, and the avoidance of vice. These attitudes are ingrained in the young Midwesterner from youth by simply breathing the humid air, and this ideology persists through generations. Even the seemingly anti-Midwestern Woke mind virus has mutated to take on this Midwestern Doomerism: Fear of God replaced by fear of social judgment, the dignity of hard work replaced by the compulsion to protest publicly and loudly and persistently, the avoidance of vice in the form of self-flagellation for not being a pious enough globohomosexual ... there is much to be said about the Midwesterner that cannot be fit into a single post, but much of it remains undiscovered by outsiders due to our naturally laconic nature. The mysteries of the Midwestern temperament are for the Midwesterners alone to keep to themselves.

    The Midwest fricking sucks. Anyone defending it was born there and will die there. I moved to Chicago 6 months ago. It’s a good city but outside of that, the Midwest is a wasteland. I gravitate towards places with outdoor access and it’s probably one of the worst places in the country for that. The girls I’ve dated here are funny. Moving to Chicago is the pinnacle of existence for them. They haven’t traveled much if at all, never mind living anywhere else. They are quite risk adverse. Not saying this is exclusive to the Midwest but has been a trend I’ve picked up on.

    Because of the weather and lack of outdoors access, their “culture” is very consumer based. Heavy drinking and eating. I would not want to live here forever.

      Yep. They just don't get it. If you're born somewhere with big skies and mountains in at least one direction the midwest is just bleak as hell.
      This leads to a general blandness among the population. Midwesterners are also easily impressed. Give them something that is banal in more interesting parts of the country but completely novel to them, like the In & Out secret menu (yes, this really happened) and they'll get on their phone to tell all their friends about it.
      Nobody is disputing the fact that white people in the midwest are nice, inoffensive, great people to drink a beer with and unlikely to steal your bicycle. But the appeal of the region really ends there.

    How in the FRICK is that west?

      I'm hoping you're euro or something and not really this unfamiliar with your own country.
      The "mid-west" was named as in the early history of the country, the settled part of the country was the east coast states east of the Appalachian Range and west of those mountains, was the "west" which at the time, was the unsettled frontier. The mid-west was the middle area, just starting to be settled by whites, between the far west, that was still unsettled frontier west of the Rockies.

    myself and my brother were born in raised in a city which i will not name but is very very famous and sought out for both for relocating and especially to travel to. for reasons related to work, my brother gets b***hslapped to obscure places to live temporarily for a couple years then moves. two of those places are grand rapids, MI and recently, omaha, NE. ive visited both long enough to get a feel for each place and here's my synopsis. they are basically the epitome of whats wrong with white culture/people/americlaps in general. its stale, stagnant, outdated, noncompetitive. they collectively default to conservatism on the premise that worked in the past, should work now. the result is a mind blowing level of the exact opposite of remarkableness. i have literally NEVER in my life, seen a situation where you can go downtown to a public space with dozens or HUNDREDS of people coming in and out and EVERYONE was wearing some combinations of dark/neurtral/earth toned pantagonia/colombia/north face puffy vests, fleeces, 1/2 zip downs, hiking pants, hiking boots, and NOTHING else. and i live in a city that gets cold enough in the winter to justify have dedicated winterwear. the level of conformity is mind boggling. what i just described was in grand rapids. now i visited omaha recently and the situation was much different. still a high level of 'standard midwest uniform' but there was far more variety. i feel most of the hate comes from the fact that they have to gall to take pride in ANYTHING. the same way the rednecks take pride in 'working and NOT being a fricking Black person', the only thing you have going for you is that you arent the fricking south and... nothing else.

    Apart from tornadoes, Midwest is easily one of the most overpowered places for humans to live on the entire planet. Top-tier soil, plenty of water, many long navigable rivers, spacious, gentle terrain. Great for farming, manufacturing, and building homes. But it's not a very attractive place for SighSee tourism because

    - Whites have only settled there for 200 years, so no ancient or medieval architecture to wank over.
    - Few destitute girls for mutual exploitation.
    - No scenic mountains, beaches, or similar natural tourist attractions. The best wilderness (northern Minnesota) is also the least typical of midwest, geographically.
    - The gentle geography means there's not much need for creative urban designs.
    - Extreme normalgay sports, food and religious culture.
    - Trends in the last 25-50 years have been rough on the midwest--urban decay, white flight, globalization, loss of manufacturing, population drain (techies to Silicon Valley, cute girls to LA and NY City, and overall migration to nice weather sunbelt cities) and of course fentanyl.

        Yes they are, fricking cancerous European racial nitpicking. And I can even nitpick you harder why not distinguish between Northern and Southern Italians?

        And in context it clearly doesn't matter, the point is that there's almost no meaningful pre-Columbian architecture in the Midwest. Land-bridge Americans were nomadic and did not build permanent settlements. And those that did, did not have advanced architecture. There are the mound-builders but that's about it and they were mostly gone before Euros arrived. Whites aren't the only race to have architecture (plenty of old architecture in China and India for example). But almost everything in the US Midwest was built there in the last 200 years by humans with European heritage.

        In contrast, the iconic buildings in Red Square, Moscow were finished almost 500 years ago, just a few years after Columbus arrived in the Caribbean. Buildings in other European countries are much older than that.

          That's your definition as what counts as white. If you talked to an average American back in the 18th century, he'd tell you that the only people who count as white are the English, Dutch, and maybe the French.

            't know about Native Mounds
            I'm very familiar with the mounds in fact I thought I had mentioned them it looks like I accidentally edited it out.
            Either way, Mississippian civilization was already disintegrating before Europeans arrived. The largest city, Cahokia, was abandoned a century before Columbus.

            Contrast with Europe, where you have cities that have been in continuous habitation for over 2,000 years with surviving architecture to show for it. There are castles and palaces and cathedrals dating to Roman times and through the middle ages as kingdoms and empires rose and fell. The Byzantine empire might be gone but Hagia Sophia is still there. There are still castles in Prague though the Holy Roman Empire no longer exists. Republic of Venice is defunct but Venice itself is still there.

            A handful of man-made hills in an already somewhat hilly landscape just don't compete with that as a tourist attraction.

              The Midwest (and the Southwest too) is actually a hotbed for researching preagrarian and early agrarian societies. It's one of the few places agriculture emerged independently that didn't become urbanized and repeatedly destroyed in various wars, so the archeological record is fairly clean

    ITT: people realizing they aren't really sociable

    Midwest is GOAT if you're not an autistic introvert who thinks "they" are out for you. I'd be willing to bet most people here are IT dorks and could pick up a remote job that would have them living like a millionare and at that point why are you bothering with fatties. Keep in mind if you think the girls are porkers, the men in the midwest are making your 5/10 ass look like a 8 or 9/10 by default if you lack a beer gut and have a stable paycheck. Why you would be bothering complaining about fat b***hes is silly unless you think the roadside gas station bar next to TA's trucker stop. Want a real metric? Look at high school graduation rates compared to a city and midwest pop <300k place. The pay is good, the weather is fine(winter is winter), and the land is cheap. If I want to go to California for winter I would, or I could just fly to hawaii or Singapore and spend the winter there.It's not hard to get a ride into town for a flight.

    I can't tell if this thread is trying to gatekeep westies out but holy shit I can tell the people who've been vs the people who haven't.

        I love Wisconsin. Chicago is awesome too. Other than women, we have a minority (black) problem that likes to do home invasions, car jackings, muggings, and ruin any cities public schools. Sigh, so close to perfection. I live in a little town in between Madison and Milwaukee. So, I get to visit, have fun. Then the best part, I get to go home. People don't even lock their doors here.

          >The Iron Brigade, also known as The Black Hats, Black Hat Brigade, Iron Brigade of the West, and originally King's Wisconsin Brigade was an infantry brigade in the Union Army of the Potomac during the American Civil War. Although it fought entirely in the Eastern Theater, it was composed of regiments from three Western states that are now within the region of the Midwest. Noted for its strong discipline, its unique uniform appearance and its tenacious fighting ability, the Iron Brigade suffered the highest percentage of casualties of any brigade in the war. Picrel.

          I will never stop loving these threads of absolute seethe from coastal idiots. Most these posts seem to be by people who watched Trailer Park Boys not realizing that was in Canada. For a travel board you all really don't seem to do all that much outside complain about women and nogs. Why the frick are you guys putting yourselves in situations with minorities and fat women. Go to your local gym, don't hang out at Applebees thinking that's where the bar meets happen, stick to groups around your hobbies.

              NOT A HEKKIN 3 HOUR DRIVE TO A RESORT TO SKI!!!!

              The larger cities in the mid-west are filled with poor blacks and have serious violent crime problems. Chicago, St Louis, Detroit, Cleveland, Kansas City, Little Rock Arkansas, Tulsa, Rockford Illinois, Kalamazoo, Milwaukee, South Bend, Cincinnati, Flint, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Lansing, Akron, Toledo, Dayton, Peoria, Witchita, and Springfield Missouri all routinely rank among the top 25 most violent cities in the US.

              Besides the crime, there aren't a lot of good national parks. A giant glacier flattened the entire place 10,000 years ago, so there aren't any mountains, and therefore no skiing to enjoy during the terrible winters. It's so flat that storms are really bad and they get tornadoes. Truthfully, the only large mid-west city worth visiting is Chicago. The first time I drove across country, I planned to stop at the St Louis arch, but when I pulled off the highway, it was so ghetto that I didn't even slow down. I just got back on the highway and kept driving.

              For upper middle class+ whites, skiing is a borderline religion. I never got it either, but maybe that's because I grew up middle class in Kent, Ohio (so, lower middle class USA)

              and ya.....midwest is NOT about living in a city lmao. maybe near one or in river north chicago, but that's about it. the main appeal would be a comfy (college town) suburb, if at all.

My coworker would often take off friday and do a bus thursday overnight to some place in the appalachian mountains for stupid cheap, never really saw it much of a huge flex unless going to fly to Aspen or whatever. I guess living by the rockies for a while has skewed my perception of it.

    I will never stop loving these threads of absolute seethe from coastal idiots. Most these posts seem to be by people who watched Trailer Park Boys not realizing that was in Canada. For a travel board you all really don't seem to do all that much outside complain about women and nogs. Why the frick are you guys putting yourselves in situations with minorities and fat women. Go to your local gym, don't hang out at Applebees thinking that's where the bar meets happen, stick to groups around your hobbies. If you all are as rich as you say you are getting the creme of the crop is a literal free pass to pussy.

        The dating pool is smaller yeah, but that's generally why I live on the outskirts of a bigger city such as Springfield OH, Dayton isn't unreasonably far away to look and see. If a girl wants to move in we are talking a ~30 minute drive to downtown which again, isn't unreasonable given the fact you can basically live for free. Hell I can even uber to Dayton if I want.

        If anything there was less social meetings with my neighbors when I lived in VA/AZ/Cali; most I never even knew them outside their car and first name. Complete 180 in the midwest, people want to meet and greet and keep each-other company.

      Well this is the travel board, not the "good places to live" board. There are a few gems in the midwest as far as tourism goes, but for the most part there's not a lot to see that you wouldn't find in any other American city. I do agree that it's a great place to live in for relatively cheap, but if you're the type that likes going out to shows and whatnot you'll hate living there because there's supposedly nothing to do.

        I think a big issue is that the tourist destinations are all very spread out. The Midwest is a big place and the general character is "flat, rural farmland and practical, car-centric cities." Points of interest are the exception, in contrast to a place like the Pacific Northwest where where there's interesting geography wherever you go.

    There are two polar powers in the US. The 'Old Money' in the East Coast and the 'New Money' in the West Coast. The midwest gets flak because they're a bit like China when it refuses to acknowledge that only the US and Europe actually matter - they're convinced that they should be a polar power and it simply isn't so.

    That's pretty much the story with the midwest. They think they matter and they don't, so the people that do matter have to keep smacking them down like some upstart shitter. Simple as.

    When I tell people I'm from Iowa it's hard to explain to what makes it special to me. We don't have a great historical, or literary, or film culture. We don't have many famous Iowans, and the ones who have become famous did so by leaving for California or Washington. But through this difficulty I think my midwestern identity has developed strongly. There is this feeling of time passing by, and time leaving you behind, and not being tied to much of the troubles of the world but just the land. When I think of my childhood in Iowa it's always the trees and long, rolling green hills. The smell of the corn and hay and the coyotes howling far away. The paint chipping off the decades dilapidated barn and tornado shelter. The little fossilized shells in the steep creekside millions of years old. The starry wet nights and booming thunderstorms. The Midwest makes you feel very small and insignificant in the wide open prairies. Baseball games in the fields. People from California I meet can always point to some movie or music cliche to say "this is what my life was like." But I think we just have these memories that are not easy to share the feeling. This feeling of not belonging to anything greater than the earth is what I think of. The mere experiences of Wichita or Springfield passerby can never really capture this. It gives us a certain character, and I suppose that is what we are really well known for.

        The midwest and particularly the upper midwest is highly wholesome, very white, and probably the part of the country least spoiled by degeneracy. Very genuine people, low cost of living, low crime rate, no natural disasters except the odd tornado and those get more and more rare as you go north. No breathtaking scenery but the environment is comfy and there are some kino state parks. It's not somewhere to live if you want a life of excitement but if you're over that phase of your life and want to settle down then it's kino

        Apart from tornadoes, Midwest is easily one of the most overpowered places for humans to live on the entire planet. Top-tier soil, plenty of water, many long navigable rivers, spacious, gentle terrain. Great for farming, manufacturing, and building homes. But it's not a very attractive place for SighSee tourism because

        - Whites have only settled there for 200 years, so no ancient or medieval architecture to wank over.
        - Few destitute girls for mutual exploitation.
        - No scenic mountains, beaches, or similar natural tourist attractions. The best wilderness (northern Minnesota) is also the least typical of midwest, geographically.
        - The gentle geography means there's not much need for creative urban designs.
        - Extreme normalgay sports, food and religious culture.
        - Trends in the last 25-50 years have been rough on the midwest--urban decay, white flight, globalization, loss of manufacturing, population drain (techies to Silicon Valley, cute girls to LA and NY City, and overall migration to nice weather sunbelt cities) and of course fentanyl.

        I’ve lived through hurricanes and something about these Midwest tornadoes look terrifying. It’s demonic-looking the way they twist the sky into something scary.

        They are more terrifying in many ways. Hurricanes do cause a lot more total damage because they are huge and last longer, but they're also far more predictable. You're not waking up in the middle of the night with <5 minutes to get into an underground shelter before an EF5 deletes your house and maybe the rest of your neighborhood for good measure. And yeah Supercell storms are the most visually dramatic storms as well.

      You gotta understand probably 9 out of 10 anons probably are in their mid-late 20's still living at home with their aging parents in places they would have no chance affording if not for bumming off said parents good will as an adult. Most probably work some remote job or have enough free time without rent to save up some allowance or play the crypto game for some small winnings to travel every now and again. I think outside some military anon I bumped into there was only one other anon who moved out and had a stable job when we got to talking most everyone else in the group either was a cagie living at home or had a crypto fund.

      When you realize less than 10% of all anons here are actually even thinking long term investments, local safety, income to cost of living ratio, tax rates, and so on; the thread makes perfect sense. The 4% rule is fricking dead and most people here are mostly on a downward spiral of savings 'but waiting for the next big crypto boom!', most aren't considering land and proper equity in their long term goals. Why people with so much crypto can't or straight up won't invest in property often confused me until I realize they live at home or store all their shit with mom and dad at 30.

      While the midwest may not be GOAT it's far better for your average anon who wants to put in a decent stable investment for long term planning. With more jobs finally pulling out of high cost of living coastal states the midwest is going to be consistently growing. However maybe someone here has some secret sauce they know about but for me knowing my house will be a decent resell when I am 60-70 and will have not paid some landlord for an apartment I don't own; I can sleep very well at night.

          Depends what you are looking for, if I wanted I could get a studio for <500. Easily get an apartment for ~ 700-750 in Green Bay for a decent enough place. Biggest issue with WI/MN/SD/ND areas is income limits being enforced for some places so you just need to check. Apartments.com often does a good job of listing that though if you rent a house through craigslist you can always get more for your money.

          Madison rent prices got fricked
          Appleton isn't bad if you have remote work though small airport for travel
          La Crosse is meh but the cops will never charge you with anything but will be dicks. Homeless kinda a big problem in summer due to that.

          Make sure the place pays for heating, most will pay for heated water+HVAC but never hearts to check.

          Prices are probably 1/3 or 1/4 of your typical soulless American metropolitan area, but your wages are probably going to be 1/2 or 1/3 of the jobs you can get there too. The main difference is that apartments in the Midwest are fricking huge. It's not uncommon to rent 1,000 square feet for $600 even today so long as you're willing to commute a bit by car.

        >Scandinavians settled predominantly in rural areas of the Midwest and Great Plains ― particularly in Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, and North Dakota.
        Because they basically settled around a similar climate around the great lakes for work.

      Midwest had very strong Protestant ideology until the 1990s. The Midwest is still very religious but it's been replaced by cultural Marxism. So instead of passionate devotion to WASP work ethic and humility you have rabid indoctrination on the latest racial/sexual/political bullshit. Shitlibs in the Midwest are honestly the worst. It's all holier than thou women pushing 30 with more cats than children and pussies run through with as many dicks as a 70s porn star. If you live in the small towns you can still have a normal wife and family but the mid-sized cities are infested with this performative nonsense. Again you must realize it's just WASP church culture with Jesus being replaced by Juan the Gentle Landscaper and Domiquan the Dindu Child Support Enjoyer.

    The Midwest is a cold boring shit hole, with corn, cows, entitled cow women and drunks, everyone here copes about this god awful region. It's a bucket of crabs, anyone who is lucky enough to make it out is usually criticized by those stuck in the Midwest still. It sucks here.

      The Western boundary of the US was a lot farther East when it acquired the name.

      The United States of America used to be a whole lot smaller than it is now. Then they gained more and more lands by killing natives (pretty much from Arizona to California), illegally purchasing lands through extortions (Alaska and Texas), subverting/destabilizing peaceful local governments (Hawaii and Puerto Rico) and instigating wars (Palestine soon). That image is topkek btw

    Is this a travel question? If so, I think the answer is pretty basic: the Midwest isn’t as popular with travelers as coastal or mountain regions (or even as parts of the deep South if they’ve got cultural or historic interest, or interesting food) because it lacks mountains and beaches, which travelers usually enjoy. It’s largely flat, there’s a lot of farmland, and very few of the cities pack much tourism punch. It’s also a relatively large area, so many parts of it are far from one another, and tourists, especially foreign tourists, rarely want to spend seven hours driving through farmland, or worse yet, ten hours watching farmland pass by from a bus window, even if there’s an impressive national park at the end of the journey.

    That said, especially at its northern and western extremes, there’s quite a lot of tourism-worthy stuff in the Midwest. The Boundary Waters canoeing area up in MN is exceptionally beautiful. The Badlands National Park in SD is worth the trek. And while I haven’t really spent much time up there myself, 85% of the people I’ve ever met from Michigan wax nostalgic about some lake house or cabin that they insist is the most beautiful place on Earth.

    If you’re talking about other Americans hating on the Midwest, I assume that’s because they regard it as boring more than anything else. But I haven’t really encountered hate for the region IRL; it’s been closer to the opposite, with locals/former locals raving about how great wherever they’re from is.

    I lived in Bloomington IL for 2 years working for State Farm. Hardly saw any black people. There were lots of Indians thought, imported to work for SF. When I left they were in the process of reducing the number of "externals," so I don't know if there are still lots of Indians in town. But it seemed pretty white. College town too, so fair amount of pretty girls. Not a ton to do in town, that's true. But I had a great apartment for $775 (and could have gone cheaper without sacrificing too much), whereas now in Austin a good studio for $1400 would be a steal. I'm thinking Midwest is pretty based. State Farm wasn't a bad employer, good people there, all things considered. Not cutting edge tech though: still used COBOL, though I didn't work with it.

      Almost everything here applies to Madison/Epic, besides the Indians (more east Asians and Somalians)

    skiing is fun
    I grew up in upstate ny, skiing was not just an upper class thing (although there was still some bias that direction). There were lots of affordable local ski areas. You probably didn't go on trips to resort-tier mountains Whiteface or Stowe (certainly not Vail). A far bigger status flex for wealthy types in my neck of the woods was winter vacations to Bahamas or Florida Keys and coming back all tanned in February.
