And sadly, the world is still full of prejudice and stereotypes too. The "south" is always stereotyped like this, and people not from the south always say these type of things. But it just is fun to laugh at because all it really says is that "I am a racists ignorant person!"; because really you have clue what people in the "south" or like. Nor do you actually have any tolerance for different people.

You say you've lived 'all over' but I really wonder if you've spent a good amount of time down here. If you had, and actually gone out into the public and hung out with some of the 'locals', you'd be saying different. Ok, I'm from the north, I don't like the south (for various reasons) but damn. I'm not the only one saying these things. My ex-wife was born in FL and lived here until we moved to NJ in 2000. Even she realizes most of the people, especially in our part of FL are straight-out Jeff Foxworthy uh, worthy rednecks. I've seen most of the shit he jokes about here. I didn't have to go to Kentucky (where my ex is now, ironically enough) or Tennessee or Alabama to witness couches in the front lawn, 20 cars in the backyard (or one big ass boat in the backyard of my friends ex-husband, one that he would go on every weekend and 'sail'...no shit), the questionable lineage of some family members...I've seen it ALL. For you to tell me it's a stereotype...well, no shit, YEAH, of course it is, because it's fuckin' true!

I realize I'm never going to convince you otherwise and I'm not gonna argue about it either. It's pointless. I just wanted to have some fun with the little miscreant. You're of course entitled to your opinion. I know what goes on around here, whether it's PC to say as much, I really don't care. I've seen it and that's all that matters. You want proof, I'd be more than happy to show you...


=-Rigs-=

I do not need proof. I was born in Alabama, raised there and in Arkansas. But just because there are difference cultures does not mean they are inferior. I never said you are not allowed to not like them or have your opinions. But the attitude that they are inferior because they are different and because you said so is just appalling.


Many Arabic and Islamic men hold hands in public to show friendship and support. It is different, and weird, and I would not do it. But that does not make me a better person or make them inferior to me because they do such. I actually have tolerance for other cultures. You can keep telling me all you want that men holding hands is wrong and a sign of stupidity (like popular media does with southerns). But that will not make it true. Nor am I weak minded enough to not see silly prejudices from other people (even when they can not) and allow it to make me prejudice or think some group of people are inferior in someway.


And the idea that everybody is as an "extreme" redneck as you say, and only those people exist. Well, you are deluding your self with what you have seen, and only choosing to see or remember the extremes of the stereotype you were taught by popular media to consider inferior.

I have lived all over the US now and am constantly visiting for work the major cities on the east cost and west cost. I see more racism there from people towards other people in one day then I would see in an entire year living all over the south. From small tiny towns in the south to the larger cities in the south. Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee.

I am sure most of your neighbors will be happy to see another douchebag, carpetbagging NY'r go back, but you never seem to. In fact the older you tools get the more you migrate down here? Do us all a favor and keep your pasty asses back "home".

Oh my god, that's funny...you proved, with every jackass thing you said (and how) why I will never consider this my home. You want it, you can have it! By all means. You want the barefoot and pregnant 17 year olds, you can have them. You want the slow ass retirees, you can have them. You want the (stupid as fuck) rednecks with their muddin' and couch in the front lawn and their single-wide trailers where ALL of your family lives, YOU CAN HAVE IT! If I could go home, I'd be there - IN A HEARTBEAT. You proved why Blue shouldn't come down to the south better than I ever could. You can go back to humpin' the dog, or your sister, or whatever it is you guys in these woods do to pass the time...

Edit: And just for the record, most of my neighbors (and most of the people who live in FL) are from the north...dumbass...

Sadly those types of people exist everywhere.

Nor do you actually have any tolerance for different people.

I have lived all over now, and while yes there are quite a few serious white supremacists racists people in the south. By far and large, "northerners" and west coast, and Midwest people are FAR more racists. It is only anecdotal evidence. But I have about 200 black and foreign friends and coworkers that can attest for that.

I mean heck, just look at this map: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d0/New_2000_black_percent.gif

At least we allow black people to live with us. You can say you are not racists all you want, but that map really says other wise.


All that said, I do not think non southerns are bad, or actually meanly racists, etc. Nor do I want to sterotype. I just think most people all over are to stupid and afraid to admit the difference in people, and it is easier to point at other people and say they are racists then to admit to themselves they have very little experience with other races. And it is really hard for people to accept other culture.

For instance, I think NASCAR is the stupidest thing in the world. But just because I do not like it does not mean the people that like it are bad. And sterotyping of NASCAR fans as stupid; well, the people working for NASCAR are some of the smartest scientists and engineers in the world, FYI. You would be shocked how many former NASA JPL scientists work for NASCAR companies now, or how many leave NASCAR for NASA JPL and other similar places.

All the random talk about locations and the south!
Move to the South, you should!

I am sorry, but everybody in the entire world agrees (except those from the North) that BBQ in the south is the best in the world. And that BBQ in the north just sucks.

Sorry, that is just how it is. Just because you are accustomed to eating shitty BBQ does not make it good. But when the entire rest of the world agrees, clearly you are wrong!

Why does it seem that I am the only person in the world outside of Microsoft that seems to be willing to keep an open mind about Windows 8?

Sure it is different. And sure, you are going to have to learn some new things. But change is NOT always bad.

The interface on Windows Phone is just absolutely amazing and a joy to use. Windows 8 is based around that design. I do not know how well it will work on a computer, but Microsoft has invested millions, possibly even billions of dollars into this new interface essentially. Perhaps they know a little of what they are doing?

Is it really that hard to keep an open mind, and try it for a little while. Not just for 5 min and say "sucks" only because it is different and you did not give it a fair chance?


It might suck, but for F's sake, give it a chance. If things do not change we are never going to advance for Christ sake! Do you guys really want to be 100 years in the future traveling the solar system and still using computers designed to interface ala Windows? At least Microsoft is attempting something new. All the hubub about Linux, but they are still just trying to emulate Windows. Mac is no better either.

*Steps off soapbox*

All that said, I still give it 50/50 to suck. But if it sucks to me, I will have come to that conclusions based off of tangible reasons, not just hate or anti fanboyism!

When I recently moved, the best deal on internet around here was Comcast. It was also cheaper to get a Internet + TV bundle then just internet for some stupid ass reason.

I of course hooked up the cable box to the tv. But I have had it for 5 months now and not once watched it. And I did not have cable for years before that either.

I just wanted them to remake Wolf:ET with a new engine and better graphics! And add of course some more high quality maps/scenarios. And throw in some of the fixes by the mod community. I would happily pay for that!

I have not had cable for a few years now, until 3 weeks ago and I moved and it was $20 a month cheaper from Comcast to get cable and internet then just cable.....Even after the introductory price period.

I did not actually hook up the cable.

See White Castle and Crystal Burgers. For some reason, while people don't tend to go for 2 smaller hot dogs, 2 smaller steaks, or 2 smaller lobster tails vs 1, with burgers it seems to appeal to people. Similar idea to chicken nuggets I guess.

It is a ratio thing. For instance, the smaller the chicken nugget you have the larger surface area per unit volume increases. Thus, the smaller the nugget the more crispy coating there is!

That is per unit volume. I am not saying one small nugget has more coating then 1 large nugget. But 3 small nuggets that add up to the same as amount of chicken as 1 larger nugget will have more crust!

It is rather easy and not all the costly to build your own brick grill (if you are going to run it off charcoal). It is a fun little weekend project.

There are a host of barebones laptop companies manufacturing better spec'd laptops that are way cheaper.

That thing comes with a GeForce GT 555M. What?

It cost so much and comes with just a 555M because it is soo unbelievably thin for what it is. And that lcd touchpad/controller looks pretty freaking sweet.

This would not be my gaming laptop of choice, but it would be an excellent general laptop and stylish and thing as it is with that cool ass controller.

It just needs to cost a little less!

No, but you are on the right track.

As you can imagine, it is probably pretty hard to guess without tasting it! heh


Bourbon and Peach?

All I really want is a modern remake of Frontier: Elite II
That was the best space adventure game!


Here is a reverse engineered "GL" version of it. It still looks the same, just works easily on modern systems!

I agree, right now.

But, tablets have been around for a LONG time, not just the iPad. And they have had keyboards.

Windows 8 is deigned to work on tablets as well, so it could change a lot of things.


And if keyboards like this (http://www.thinkgeek.com/gadgets/cellphone/e722/) work well, they could become better and better and be incorporated directly into the tablets.

Why do people care about game reviews?

Game demo or you get nuttin' from me.

I like it, I buy it, I do not like it, I do not buy it. Pretty damn simple.


I really like broccoli, not everybody does. Just because you do or do not like a game does not mean I will or will not.


All of these "problems" are solved with demos!
