    :laugh: A Hoosier is a person who lives in or is from Indiana. No one really knows where the term originated from. There are some urban legends though. One is that after a bar fight someone looked down on the floor and asked \"Who\'s ear?\". I have also heard it may have been slang when people saw strangers...\"Who\'s there?\" No one knows though. Both sound a little far fetched.

    Here is a link to a wikipedia article on hoosiers and the word meaning etc.

    I\'m from Warsaw, which isn\'t far from Fort Wayne. I live in Lafayette now, just graduated from Purdue in May but I\'m sticking around.

    I\'m currently in Champaign, so closer to the Hoosier area than my hometown.

    Yes! Indiana for ever and always! No matter how bad I want to leave I will never be able to bring myself too. There's too much corn in Indiana for me to want to leave(:
