Silly ass! I was summarizing the OP's concerns.  Way to recognize the thread!  ::) (Doing my best to live up to the expectations of condescension. By the way, NH isn't condescending in my experience; it is suspicious, though.)

Keep up the good work. You're truly a goodwill ambassador for the North.

I'm glad to know NH has a different attitude...why do you think they're suspicious, though? Is it the whole "Live Free or Die" thing or is it just that they're tiny?

Not sure, it's just something I've noticed every time I visited.  It could be that I was acting like an a$$ at the time, though.  I kinda wish NH were this haven of gov-suspicious libertarians, but I've never heard of anything like that being the case.

That's a shame; I'd like it even more if it was. You? Acting like an ass? I don't buy it. Maybe it's the state-owned liquor stores. I've never appreciated states that do that.

that's one of my least favorite things about PA.  I hate the idea on principle, though it isn't as big of as hassle as most people seem to think it is (alternatively, I just don't drink enough for it to be a hassle).  crap, is it hastle?  I got to go look that word up.

i'm confused by this tea thing....my mom has been drinking UNsweetened iced tea for her whole life...most of it spent in RI.....are you saying the north doesn't have unsweetened tea or it just tastes bad? 

In the north, you can get iced tea easily- it's just not sweetened.  You can put suagar or sweet'n'low in it, but it doesn't taste as good as properly made sweet tea.

Where do people come up with this "you can't get sweetened ice tea in the north" idea??

It might not be as prevelant as in the south, but you can absolutely still find it.

The tea thing is being overblown.  I drink tea every day.  Trust me, if you want tea, you'll be able to have your tea.

I'm from Texas, and I don't even know what "properly-made sweet tea" is. I can't stand junk in my tea.

As noted before- Teaxs is its own littel world and the normal rules of society don't apply there ;)

Properly made sweet tea involves putting the sugar in while the tea is still hot.  The sugar dissolves better and the sweetness is dsitributedly uniformly thoughout the tea.  Just throwing a packet of sweetener in a galss of unsweetened tea winds up with a glob of sugar at the bottom of a glass of unsweetened tea. 

It's just a type of comfort food for those of us that grew up with sweet tea.  Like pizza for NYers or fish tacos for SoCalers.
