@Stefy, I've been to the southeast and New Jersey and the south is a lot better.
PatriotPerson says2015-06-12T13:32:41.2038013-05:00
You forgot the East
PatriotPerson says2015-06-12T13:33:02.6542138-05:00
Wait nvm

"Moved here from New Jersey. -Stefy" And she never went back! :)

Mid Atlantic and New England should be merged into one bad area.

@FreedomBeforeEquality What's wrong with New England?
triangle.128k says2015-06-12T14:06:12.1705385-05:00
It has the best education, highest IQs, lowest crime rates, most urbanization, etc.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-12T14:08:35.2562095-05:00
1) too cold, 2) high taxes, 3) sense of entitlement, 4) unions, 5) Cod is inferior to grouper, 6) Too close to Canada, 7) The accents!
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-12T14:08:56.1939465-05:00
8) Their sports teams
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-12T14:10:11.0946676-05:00
I like the old buildings though. Thats about it.
triangle.128k says2015-06-12T14:12:44.7108217-05:00
1. Hey, at least there isn't roasting hot weather in the summer. 2. The taxes are high but the people generally are wealthier. I don't know what you mean by 3-5, and what's wrong with being close to Canada? The accents aren't even that bad, you'd get used to them.
triangle.128k says2015-06-12T14:13:13.3061716-05:00
And any of that certainly can't be as bad as what goes on in the Bible belt.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-12T15:17:00.9801793-05:00
Ill take an incoherent souther talk (ex. Si) over a Boston accent (ex. Diamond Joe) any day.
tajshar2k says2015-06-12T15:19:14.6435497-05:00
I rather be rich and smart (North East), rather than poor and stupid. (South)
Varrack says2015-06-12T15:33:14.6199656-05:00
The southeast option is biased
triangle.128k says2015-06-12T16:13:45.3549327-05:00
What's biased about it?
Stefy says2015-06-12T23:40:20.2926138-05:00
FreedomBeforeEquality: That hurts man. Come on we have some great chowder.
Stefy says2015-06-12T23:47:28.4138998-05:00
Texas14: Thats cool. To each his own. We probably have a different perspective than you. Part of the reason is because my family are New Englanders. When me moved here we found the people incredibly unwelcoming. They faked a bunch of smiley, southern hospitality crap but they were really nasty to us. They call us yankees and we've been called carpetbaggers. People used to keep their kids from playing with us. They would judge us for not buying into the Bible belt mentality and for not saying Ma'am and sir (We didnt grow up with that as the norm). Im not even going to touch how openly racist some of them were. Also I was strait up told while talking to one girl that "Catholics (implying ne) dont belive in Jesus" and by another that "Our southern hospitality isnt for yankees." Im positive not everyone is that way and many people have a wonderful experience there with wonderful people. But it wasnt our experience unfortunately.

Worst at what?
benhos says2015-06-14T15:53:46.2926545-05:00
I love the southeast, but I hate the bible belt. Make any sense?
triangle.128k says2015-06-14T17:03:03.6867430-05:00
The southeast IS the bible belt. -_-
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-15T08:02:20.6118821-05:00
"That hurts man. Come on we have some great chowder." Texas and Louisiana have that down too. Crawfish/crab corn chowders are the bomb.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-15T08:08:08.2623390-05:00
"I rather be rich and smart (North East), rather than poor and stupid. (South)" Smart? They havent done anything innovative up there since the first 100 years from our founding. Theres a reason its gone so liberal. If you cant make money on your own ... Steal it from the places that are making it. Thats not smart, reactionary and scared is what it is.
tajshar2k says2015-06-15T08:15:20.8484471-05:00
And the south has?
tajshar2k says2015-06-15T08:28:47.0843906-05:00
You don't need to innovate to be smart... The Northeast has one of the best education systems in the world.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-15T08:33:57.7487648-05:00
There are plenty enough rich folk down here. Trust me. Im not sure where you get off calling the southeast poor. You need to take a trip down to MIA and see what real money looks like.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-15T08:34:57.7787192-05:00
Alot of good its done them.
tajshar2k says2015-06-15T08:50:27.9531114-05:00
The South hasn't done anything though. It has disneyland, I'll give you that.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-15T08:52:02.5181185-05:00
It doesnt have Disneyland, technically. That'd be cali. Ours is better though
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-15T08:57:25.4326006-05:00
How can you be smart and not innovative? How can anyone determine you are a smart person if you arent able to apply said smartness in an outward fashion? Regurgitating old info makes you as smart as a tape recorder. There is alot more to intelligence, and most of it involves being able to use prior knowledge in some type of application. Innovation is one way to show it. Having the most finalists in the TV show Jeopardy over the past decade does not.
Stefy says2015-06-15T09:07:29.2244092-05:00
FreedomBeforeEquality: Yeah well we have clam chowder. And better pizza. Everyone else: Your taking this poll way seriously. So much stereotypes and anger.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-15T09:10:42.7126726-05:00
Ahhhh! Chicago has better pizza too!
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-15T09:11:13.0116497-05:00
Wheres the deepdish vs thin crust poll?
benhos says2015-06-15T15:48:56.5230725-05:00
@triangle.128k I know. I love the southeast but I hate the bible belt. I love the southeast but I hate the bible belt. Meaning I hate the bible thumpers and how devout people are. Make sense?
tajshar2k says2015-06-15T15:50:16.0363358-05:00
Yea, Disneyworld was pretty sick.
tajshar2k says2015-06-15T15:53:06.2381011-05:00
Boston built the first subway system in the United States in 1897. Elias Howe of Boston invented the first sewing machine in 1845. The Mather school was founded in Dorchester in 1639. It is the first public elementary school in America. Also, I like being around smart people, so I can learn more, and have educated conversions, and be respected at the same thing. Seriously, other than Florida, the South is not my ideal place.
tajshar2k says2015-06-15T15:53:32.8979873-05:00
@Stefy, He's right, Chicago has the best pizza.
benhos says2015-06-15T15:57:56.6223593-05:00
Nope. They may have Little Caesars but we have Imo's in STL.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-16T15:11:35.3053460-05:00
Little Caesars doesn't rate ...
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-16T15:15:09.7626701-05:00
@tajshar2k All those happened well out of this century. I work closely with Cambridge types everyday. There are a few smart ones ... But to make the claim that Mass. Is smarter as a whole because of a few that came to go to MIT and then leave is a total misconception. The majority are dumb as a post.
Stefy says2015-06-25T15:40:20.4771355-05:00
Tajshar2k: Deep dish is a freaking vomit casserole. Thin crust all the way.
Stefy says2015-06-25T15:42:25.4761413-05:00
FreedomBeifreEquality: I dont like the people on here stereotyoing southerners as stupid any more than you do. Its ignorant and untrue. But Massacusetts has the best public education system in the country, its not just a few people at MIT. Loli moved to new jersey and never went beack because i didnt have a choice. No disrespect to those who like the south but ironically, its not my glass of ice tea.
tajshar2k says2015-06-25T15:42:40.7332182-05:00
Thin crust is for skinny little people. Thick crust is for real Americans.
Stefy says2015-06-25T15:43:00.0931905-05:00
Oops i meant from new jersey
