South Dakota isn't the best place to live. I'll give you that. The weather sucks ass and we're not famous for much. But I've lived here in the same state, in the same house, on the same farm/ranch for my whole life. (I'm 14) It's my home, and I love it. We have our rednecks. But so what? We have great hunting and fishing here. And we don't have a population of 7 people, so stop being fucking stupid. We actually have 800,000 people here. We're not that populated, but everyone in this state is friendly and welcoming. Strangers are friendly and will wave instead of flipping you off. The scenary's very pretty. Our cities aren't very big, but then again I don't like big cities very much. We have the same technology and live the same way as everyone else. We have the badlands, Mount Rushmore (And NO, we don't gloat about it), the Black Hills, the Bike Rally in Sturgis, caves, and a lot more. Sorry we don't have a bunch of sky-scrapers or a million people. It's a great place and if you weren't so high and mighty about your own state, and how much better you are then us, then don't fucking come here assholes.
If you don't like South Dakota, piss off. Tourists annoy the shit out of me anyway.
