Connecticut is close to Massachusetts, where I was born. So, you know, that makes it almost important!

Connecticut has a good rehabilitation center for Child Sex Offenders. I learned about this in a case, not from experience.

Conecticut is known as the Constitution state, and I am still yet to hear one good reason why. Even people from the damn state don't know why, moral of the story, don't trust Connecticut, blasphemy surrounds us.

Connecticut was designated the “Constitution State” by the General Assembly in 1959. As early as the 19th Century, John Fiske, a popular historian from Connecticut, made the claim that the Fundamental Orders of 1638/39 were the first written constitution in history.

So basically, they made that shit up. Damn nutmeggers...

On a field of azure blue is an ornamental white shield with three grapevines, each bearing three bunches of purple grapes. The states motto "He who Transplanted Sustains Us" is displayed on a white ribbon. The vines stand for the first settlements of English people who began to move from Massachusetts in the 1630's. These settlements were thought of as grapevines that had been transplanted. Those same English people were also fucking drunks.
