Yeah, I suppose that is true.  It is intersting that while the "South" can be easily defined, what constitutes the "North" is a bit more subjective.  I suppose I consider the North everything from the Upper Midwest eastward and everything north of the Mason-Dixon line.  Then there are the Plains States, the Mountain West, the Southwest, and the West Coast.

Are these parameters all right with you?

"Everyone knows"??  

@#!* that.  I've fought two jersey boys, a conn boy, and a complete a-hole from boston, and not one of them was worth the effort.

In fact, I've yet to see a fight between a northerner and a southerner where the northerner won.

Toughest fight I've ever been in was with a skinny-ass swamp rat from Louisiana.

you guys need to come on down to the south.  where I'm from there is the Malco Twin, which shows two movies and all the junior high kids hang out, and Percy's Pool Hall. 

Percy's is hardcore 'neck.  Truck drivers, factory workers, and farm boys.

That's it as far as entertainment establishments.  Then there's Roy's, Riley's Pig, and Ossies Bars.

Not all places in the south are this way, though.  And I'd say a good 60-70% of southern guys still believe in one-on-one fights.  There's a kind of unwritten code about that crap down here.

No, fights are stupid. But the idea of having rules for fights harkens back to the whole age of gentlemen and duels and such.

And as someone who spends a lot of time in both the South and the North, I can say that there really is still a sense of chivalry in the South that apparently no longer exists in the North.

fictional?

Jersey is NYC's landfill.

Please if it weren't for Manhattan NYC would be a sewer.  The other boroughs are shi* stains.

NJ has given us electricity, recording devices, and Super fund legislation.

We completely rock - from Sinatra to the Boss.

Modern day Jersey is third tier toilet, just admit it.  Even if Bronx, Queens, etc. are sh!tstains (which I disagree), at least it isnt the entire state.

Again, if it weren't for Manhattan you would have nothing in the entire state of NY.  Ever been to Buffalo?

I'd prefer Newark to that depressing place.

Plus - we have nice beaches.  Enjoy that TTT Jones Beach.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE FROM NEW YORK CITY WHEN...

 

 

* You think Central Park is "nature."

* You're paying $1,200 for a studio the size of a walk-in closet and you think it's a "steal."

* You've been to New Jersey twice and got hopelessly lost both times.

* You pay more each month to park your car than most people in the U.S. pay in rent.

* You go to dinner at 9 and head out to the clubs when most Americans are heading to bed.

* You have 27 different menus next to your telephone.

* Going to Brooklyn is considered a "road trip."

* America west of the Hudson is still theoretical to you.

* You're suspicious of strangers who are actually nice to you.

* You take a taxi to get to your health club to exercise.

* Your idea of personal space is no one actually standing on your toes.

* $50 worth of groceries fit in one paper bag.

* You secretly envy cabbies for their driving skills.

* You have never been to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building.

* You can get into a four-hour argument about how to get from Columbus Circle to Battery Park at 3:30 on the Friday before a long weekend, but can't find Wisconsin on a map.

* Hookers and the homeless are invisible.

* The subway makes sense.

* The subway should never be called anything prissy, like the Metro.

* You think $7.00 to cross a bridge is a fair price.

* You've considered stabbing someone just for saying "The Big Apple."

* Your favorite movie has DeNiro in it.

* The most frequently used part of your car is the horn.

* You run when you see a flashing "Do Not Walk" sign at the intersection.

Have you ever seen other parts of Jersey, or just Newark? Morris County, NJ was the richest county in the country two years ago. While some of NJ is trashy at least we can boast to having:
-Wealth
-Good school districts (even Shabazz in Newark produces great D1 athletes)
-Booming job market/among lowest national unemployment rates
-Decent beaches (it's not the hamptons or bermuda, but not too shabby)
-NY teams play at the Meadowlands rather their own state (may change w/ Jets)
-great shopping (outlets, Short Hills mall ranked in top 10 malls)
-prime real estate (some houses here are worth more than entire towns down south)
-diversity (not everyone's dumb and white)

Yea, NJ has it's bad parts...but I'd rather look at Newark and Camden than barns. It's easy for southerners to rip on NJ b/c of all the hearsay...but our teenagers hang out at malls while your's loiter at Walmart...we drive SUV's while you drive piece of sh*t pick-up trucks...you've got the KKK while we have street gangs...you drink moonshine, we blow lines...

since when did producing great athletes equal being a good school??
have you checked real estate in Charleston?? Savannah? Atlanta?
and the lack of diversity in the South??  have you been here??  did you open your eyes??

To answer your response:

-No, producing great athletes has nothing to do with education...I should have elaborated, but even the worst public schools in NJ are able to build a decent reputation, even if it's not academically.
-I'm sure the homes in these areas are very nice
-And yes, I am basing my lack of diversity on preconceived notions of racism. But it's not much different from the way in which people bash NJ without having seen parts other than Newark/Camden.

And I love living in my overcrowded, smelly, f*cked up state

Have you ever seen other parts of Jersey, or just Newark? Morris County, NJ was the richest county in the country two years ago. While some of NJ is trashy at least we can boast to having:
-Wealth
-Good school districts (even Shabazz in Newark produces great D1 athletes)
-Booming job market/among lowest national unemployment rates
-Decent beaches (it's not the hamptons or bermuda, but not too shabby)
-NY teams play at the Meadowlands rather their own state (may change w/ Jets)
-great shopping (outlets, Short Hills mall ranked in top 10 malls)
-prime real estate (some houses here are worth more than entire towns down south)
-diversity (not everyone's dumb and white)

since when did producing great athletes equal being a good school??
have you checked real estate in Charleston?? Savannah? Atlanta?
and the lack of diversity in the South??  have you been here??  did you open your eyes??

NJ has one of the best school systems in the country... most of my friends who went to NJ public schools have friends at multiple ivies and other great colleges, and had access to almost every AP course imaginable.

ive been to all the southern states except mississippi and arkansas.  aside from the large cities like Atlanta and St. Louis, i didnt see much diversity.

The city of Atlanta is about 90% black and the suburbs are about 90% white; is that diverse?  Is almost all black diverse?  I don't know because diversity discussions are stupid as far as I am concerned.  I know people of various races and backgrounds because they are the people I have met along the way, but I don't give a *&^% if my friends are a diverse bunch.  It is funny how 'diversity' has become some pseudo-tool to measure toleranse or somehtieng.  Who gives a *&^%?

by diversity i wasnt referring to X% blacks, X% asians, X% whites, etc... thats why i disagree with the current affirmative action system.  i was talking about something more along the lines with what feminine hygiene product says above.  HTH.

when people around you say,

"forget about it"  when they're referring to an incident of sorts.  this terminology is typically used by new yorkers, people from jersey who wear jerseys a lot, and from those who now live in CT, but once lived in the bronx.  yeah, it's that location specific.

you'll also find some people who live in chicago, atlanta, and michigan who are recent new york transplants going on with this "forget about it" remark as well, but for the MOST PART, it goes away because people in the new cities make fun of them whenever they say it.

it's largely stated while they're watching a sporting activity.  i never understood it. 

if you are living in new york currently, i know what you're thinking......
