Maybe the close minded bigot should get out more. The snow gives us fun things to do. Mountains are a stones throw away, lots of places in the flatlands too. And he seems like one of the rude racist people. Nothing but kindness, its all about the company you keep.

I'm pretty sure this dudeee confused Connecticut with Colorado. Colorado is the third best state to live in where as Connecticut is the 3rd worse to live in. Dudeee you're completely oblivious and have been locked in your mother's basement for too long. Come to Connecticut...you'll feel right at home. Ignorant people amuse me.

Nothing to do? The worst winters? Takes forever to get to the mountains? One of the worst for crime? Perfect for people that only play video games and never leave the house? Ugly landscape? Was this shit just made up?

I don't think Colorado sucks balls. It has it's good points, it's great points, and it's not so great points, and a few downright "WTF" points. Hey! No different than any other state! And let's hear it for the absolutely beautiful summers here!

I am not a fan of tattoos. I don't see any reason for a person to damage his/her beautiful skin. People should get the good things from Houston, TX. http://ow.ly/zBSbx

"In the past few weeks, Wolff has been testing a new kind of rapid screening system for marijuana use. The test takes about 10 minutes, using a drop of saliva from a driver." Colorado State Trooper J.J. Wolff has made a career of tracking down drunken and drugged drivers. As one of the state's leading experts in identifying impaired drivers, Wolff knows many Americans are watching what's happening on Colorado roads. He says he's not yet seen a major increase in stoned drivers, but state troopers are definitely looking. "I have personally not seen more stoned drivers, not arrested more stoned drivers," says Wolff, who also trains new troopers how to recognize impaired drivers. "From my point of view, that's good." To check whether drivers might be impaired by alcohol, marijuana or prescription drugs, Wolff puts them through a series of voluntary roadside tests. The tests, which include standing on one leg while counting silently, and walking in a straight line, check someone's sense of time and motor skills. Marijuana, like alcohol, is a central nervous system depressant. That means it affects how someone perceives time, Wolff says. "My first objective is to make sure you're OK to drive," he says. One of the most useful tools police officers have is the portable breath test, which instantly checks a driver's intoxication level through the amount of alcohol they exhale. In the past few weeks, Wolff has been testing a new kind of rapid screening system for marijuana use. The test takes about 10 minutes, using a drop of saliva from a driver. Most of the commonly used marijuana tests require a blood draw and take days to yield results. Those tests can really tell only whether someone has used marijuana in the past week or so, not whether they are impaired now.

Colorado is one of the best places to live in the west for water, and anyone whos ever cracked a book knows this. 156 rivers have their headwaters in Colorado, and the CO river runs dry due to the 6 other dry states diverting it. Keep yelling the sky is falling tho! :)

Let people hate on Colorado and tell others who don't live here to NEVER visit. Its their loss, and we don't need anymore people moving here. Colorado can be OUR secret!

So glad others are speaking up about how useless all of these lists are. Stick to music, food, and interesting events. Stop flooding our FB walls with useless crap.

What is everyone's problem with Californians? Seriously? Californians make up a lot of the transplant numbers which means we help with Colorado's economy. This country is a melting pot, which means EVERY state has transplants. Get over it and stop worrying about nothing. I've been here for almost ten years and the hateful looks I get from "natives" when I tell them I'm from California is literally the worst part about this state. This place is beautiful, of course people are going to come here. I wasn't planning on staying but I fell in love with this place. Stop complaining, and appreciate what you have.
I may be California grown but there is a reason why I planted my feet in Denver soil.

And while you're at it, stop singling out Texans too.

Colorado River doesn't even reach the ocean any more, it runs dry and has been for over a decade. That's just one example. The aquifers along the Front Range are dropping more than a foot a year due to use and are not being recharged fast enough. That's a second example.
