Gotta love when five-year old threads get bumped up from the absolute depths of the forums.
I live in Indianapolis, Indiana. The city has a population of about 820,000, with many more in the larger metropolitan area. We're known for a few things, notably the Indianapolis 500, which is the largest single-day sporting event in the world. We've got an NFL and an NBA team, as well as a AAA baseball team. There's not a huge amount of unique culture here, which is unfortunate. We have the third most fast food restaurants per capita in the US, which probably contributes to our high obesity rates.
There are a couple of neat things about the city. We've hosted GenCon since 2003, which is the largest tabletop / card / RPG game convention in the country. Kurt Vonnegut, one of the greatest novelists of the 20th century, is from Indianapolis. Cost of living is super cheap here - the median rental price is only $692, far below the national average.
Unfortunately, the weather is completely bonkers for some reason. The winters are brutally cold - we had a four day span of -50° weather this January, and the summers can be extremely hot as well. I'd like to move somewhere with a more temperate climate once I finish my master's degree.
