1) Best indigenous food Pastys. It's like a calzone, but with beef and potatoes and gravy. It's as awesome as it sounds. 2) Biggest plus to living there You can swim in the summer and snowboard in the winter 3) Biggest minus Too many lib-tards, especially the current governor. Skyrocketing unemployment and taxes, plummeting housing prices. Detroit. 4) Weirdest wildlife None, really. 5) A word or phrase that an outsider wouldn't understand Most Michiganders add an "s" to the name of stores named after people. i.e. "Meijer's," "Kroger's." Also, "yoopers" for people from the Upper Peninsula, and "trolls" for people from the Lower (Under the bridge =P), though those are mostly UP terms. 6) Local boy or girl who made good. Bob Seger, Gerald Ford 7) Gun laws Typical as far as I can tell. No waiting period for handguns. 8) Biggest misconception the rest of us might have about your state It's not a misconception that we tell everyone where we live by pointing at our hands. We actually do that. 9) The thing an outsider should never do Not know how to play euchre. It's pretty much the state card game. 10) Restaurant I can really only speak for southeast Michigan, but: Lyle's for massive ham sandwiches and bean soup, Star Deli for corned beef, and Bates' Hamburgers for sliders.
