I've lived in Wisconsin, Iowa, Colorado, California, New Jersey, Alaska. Been through most of the others. Folks had a place for years in Florida. Crazy to think Wisconsin the best place to retire if you can afford to live elsewhere. Firstly, you wouldn't want to be in the same room with a Wisconsinite for more than ten minutes without the TV turned on. They all have that eerie pride the people with little to be proud of have. Very judgmental, terrible conversationalists, always on the outside looking in. These are not the "live and let live" people.Loners in a group. Second, the weather. I've lived in the Canadian Arctic as well as Alaska: winters in Wisconsin are twice as bad. Alot of gray skies, forlorn people; a friend from elsewhere calls it "the darkness reaching for the darkness." Third, the sheer banality. You feel like your in the middle of a black and white film documentary about the childhood of Franz Kafka. It's so dull it's actually surreal. There are probably a hundred other reasons, but somehow I can only think of these three just now. You can't buy time. Life is short. Don't waste it there.
