    Having lived in Indiana for 7 years, I barely considered it the Midwest. Just different type of people than what you normally associate with "Midwesterners". Plus, I feel any state in the eastern time zone shouldn't be considered Midwest.

    Based on the FiveThirtyEight survey that I posted, the states that are the "most" Midwestern are Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana, and I would probably agree that those three make up the core of the Midwestern region. So I guess I disagree.

    I'm just going off of my personal experience with the people. Maybe I could see it with northern Indiana, but at the very least, anything south of I-70 feels more southern or eastern than Midwestern.

    I don't really like ranch. Ranch on cheese curds is ok, but it's gross on salads.


    new signature ideas needed; inquire within

    Re: 20 Words That Have A Different Meaning in the Midwest

    Not on the list, but one I've heard somewhere about midwesterners or Iowans...Answers to how's it going?

    We actually answer this, as opposed to just acting like it's a rhetorical question.
    We don't say "I'm well"...which is a dumb way to try and sound fancy
    Most common answer is "not too bad", which is better than "Not too good"

    The heirarchy would be:

    Good
    Not too bad
    Not too good
    bad
