Out of the Blue

I've seen reports that have called this year's E3 anticlimactic, but I don't know, it seems pretty hopping from the amount of news the show is generating. Maybe attending leaves one with a different impression.

Oh man, that never gets old!

I have watched it over the past few days at least 10x. awesome, just awesome. How he did not swear on live tv astounds me. That would have been a huge F.

No earth shattering announcements at all
That seems to be the general tone of reports, that publishers rehashed 07 products and made no mega announcements.

It's as if they're all saving their Major Announcements for some other (bigger) venue.

Yes, New Yorkers are up their own asses, but so are Londoners, Parisians, or anyone else living in what they believe to be the centre of the world.

You made me laugh. But only because you made me think of Persians and that episode of South Park (and yes I get the difference ye ole tards).


And I too could live there for a while and enjoy it greatly. And possibly living near it would be great. But I could never make it my home.

Unless I go to work for some company that pays me millions to live there.

Or I wanted to become a super hero. A super hero needs a city that large to really thrive.

I'm not sure I'd wish to live there permanently (as in bring up a family there, etc.) but I think I could live there for six months or so and have a great time.

OK, I think I could go for a short-term stay like you describe - maybe a couple months max, but not permanently.

I was there maybe 1991-ish and while I like to visit places like that to see stuff, I couldn't contemplate living there. No way, no how. Living in a subdivision in a town of less than 50,000 folks is still too noisy and crowded for my taste. Assholes revving their Harleys through the subdivision at 2am, idiots going 35 down residential streets, neighbors who don't keep their pets under control....it's enough to make you go postal.

You have it nice there.

They go 50 in front of my house (with speed bumps and posted at 30) and 30 down my alley (posted 10). Otherwise, here in the mini city of MPLS, I have all the same problems.....*sigh* I am about to move back to the 'burbs.

Basically, having a car in Manhattan is a luxury, much less a parking space.

Living in a relatively rural setting my whole life, I was shocked (shocked, I tell you!) when a transfer student I met in college, who was from Manhattan, told me he didn't know how to drive. Never got a driver's license. Never needed one. That concept was completely foreign to me. Getting a drivers license at age 16 was, to kids around where I grew up, was the most desirable thing that could possibly be attained. You could have said to any teenager "you can get your driver's license 6 months early, but you'd have to be beaten every day", and they'd take the beatings to get the driver's license.

I guess it's all about where you live ....

That quarter million is in the news for the reason: it's the exception, not the rule. The fact of the matter is that if the higher income and intangibles (nightlife, etc) of NY did not outweigh the costs people would move, they don't so the city grows.

I'd guess there are few people in New York so enamored with the city that they bankrupt themselves (I mean go seriously into debt, not run out of money and go home) trying to live there.

And for someone whose favorite term is "tard," you getting all politically correct about "podunk" is a pants-wetter.

I do it in joking. Or hate. Or love. You do not have a habit of using something 'negative' as a non negative meaning.
Nothing politically correct about it, just trying to understand what you are saying.


I think the problem here is yours and others' misunderstanding of "larger cities."
Granted we can have difference of opinion of what qualifies as a larger city.


But your next reply indicates that you choose to misunderstand just enough to keep he fires stoked, so I guess I'll give up on following up further and just allow you whatever wacky last word you want to get in.

Not really. You are the one responding to me!



Moonstruck.

And also to address the cost of living and my point about immigrants and lower income families.

Comparing NewYork, NY to Biose Idaho (metropolitan area 650,000+).
http://www.bestplaces.net/city/default.aspx?cat=ECONOMY&city=New_York_NY&ccity=Boise_City_ID&p=3651000&op=1608830

Now, there is clearly social reasons to live somewhere, I am not talking about those. And statistics do not tell us everything. But just looking at those numbers, why as somebody immigrating to our country and would most likely be working labor or service would you chose to live in NewYork city (which, to be fair, I am not even sure how that site breaks down the NewYork area) and not some place like Boise. The cost of living is much less. The average income is more. The crime is less. The overall education rate is better for your children.


Like I said, there are tons of social reasons. But as somebody who has a family or will have a family, and will not be working an extremely well paying job, I do not see why so many people keep moving to places like New York and LA, that fit in that category, when they can be much more prosperous and have a better "quality of life" else where. And yes I know better quality of life is highly subjective.

You seem to be posting a lot more on the boards these days. Have some life changes recently, or something?

I seem to have been pushing all the right buttons lately. heh.

they could move elsewhere, but its likely that the cost of a podunk parking space would take an equal, if not larger bite out of their podunk income.

Except for the 5 largest cities in the US, you do not have to pay for your parking space! Well, you do, but that is built into your property and does not actually cost any real extra.

And you banter around the word podunk like that, either you are misunderstanding me or have a very negative opinion of "smaller cities". I am not saying they should all move to Freetown Wyoming population 538. I am saying a city of a "greater metropolitan area" with less then a million people and more then fifty thousand.


To expand: Lots of imigrants end up in the service sector, and they are following the money.

The service sector is where ever there are businesses. There are plenty of business in the "smaller" cities. A immigrant working in New York area, if doing a service or "menial" job, can make almost the same amount of money in a lot of the midwestern states where the cost of living is half. They could own their own land (if legally allowed) and such relatively easy if they are willing to work just as hard as they do in New York.

That is the thing, there are so many people in cities like New York that do so much more work for so much little as compared to other places. And I am not talking about money, money is not everything.



But they can live where ever they want. Whatever, if it makes them happy. Just stating my opinion on the whole situation.
