I was born in a Border state, have lived all over, and I can tell you that there is no North-South difference anymore. It is now rural-urban.

I'm from Texas and I've never been any farther north than Denver, but I have heard that people from the northeast are kinda ride but I think it's partly because y'all are busy and in a rush. I'm used to the people down here but there are some people that are real mean.

Also I know a lot of people down here are pretty dumb. Not to brag, but I am a super-genius down here. I don't think it matters north or south, it matters on school.

Northerners are parasitical worms whose only hope for redemption would be to allow us to dissect their brains to see what makes them so evil.

You know NY, to me you sound like you are discriminating against the people from the South. I caught one of your earlier posts where you actually got offended by someone elseís posting, and now here you are being a hypocrite and trying to offend Southern people. Letís see if I can answer some of your questions before I ask you a few of my own.
1. Not all people down here believe in urban legends and WISE tails (notice the correct spelling of the word), but some do because just like Greek Mythology stories they have been handed down from generation to generation and some people, not all mind you, choose to believe in them. That doesnít make them stupid or a dumb hick, it just their way of thinking.
2. We like our sweet tea instead of coffee because, if you hadnít noticed, itís hotter down here and it is refreshing.
3. We eat a lot of fired food because that is our ethnic makeup, and again that is how the South has eaten for generations upon generations. Recipes have been handed down from one generation to the next, and itís what we like. Weíre not asking you to like it, but have you even tried it?
4. Again not all Southerners make smacking noises during a meal or suck their teeth after a meal, but for the ones who do I guess they do it because they were not taught the same set of manners as yaíll New Yorkers. Again doesnít make them bad people and to most of us who donít do it, we are not offended by it so why should you be?
5. We only mispronounce words to you or to Northerners because you speak differently than we do. Itís the whole tomato, tomoto- potato, patato thing going on. Personally I find our way of speaking to be charming and I like hearing the way we pronounce our words.
6. As far as people from the south speaking of jealousy of the New York people, I think you have that wrong too. Down here people are actually friendlier, take time to get to know you, and are not in such a hurry everywhere they go. Children are actually taught from a very early age to respect their elders and call all adults Mr., Ms, Maíam, or Sir. It seems to me that you folks up north are the oneís that are jealous of our simple way of life and mannerism, because you see even though some of us believe in wise tails; we drink sweet tea; the smacking sound some make while eating everything that is breaded and fried in fat; the way we speak; and our simple way of life offends you, we donít really care and will still go on about our normal everyday lives without loosing one second of sleep worrying about what you or anyone else thinks of us because we actually like ourselves.
Now your turn, letís turn the table a bit and see some of your answersÖ..
1. Why do you people from the North eat disgusting food that has no taste?
2. Why are you people from the North so rude and always in a hurry?
3. Why donít you people from the North teach your young to respect their elders?
4. Why do you people from the North take everything so seriously?
5. Why are you people from the North always so rude?
6. Why do you people from the North wear some of the ugliest clothing Iíve ever seen in my life?
7. Why do you people in the North care so much about what everyone else thinks of you?
8. Why are you people from the North so superficial?
9. And lastly, if you hate the South so badly then why donít you move back up North with your kind of people?
Hi from the north :)
1. If it taste horrible, people usually never go there again

2. Kind of the idea of getting fired or there is never time to relax. Just work, work, work (kids point of view)

3. Still a kid. I do respect elders.

4. Some people are just rude to us no matter what. What are we supposed to do

5.(Basically question 2)

6. Both consumers and designers can be crazy

7. Without criticism the world would be a different place that may not be for the better

8. What?

9. Never left the north but hoped to visit one day

We beloved in ild wives takes in the early 1930s come on we aren't that far behind! We drink sweet tea cause it tastes good and it's better for you and it doesn't keep you up all night. We eat fried food because when our mother makes it she pan fries it and it happens to be delicious and slightly good for you. We don't smack we are raised with manners and to be respectful and polite and we don't suck on out teeth unless there is something in it like everyone does. We run our words together because it's in out accent. We don't speak jealously of New York because we aren't jealous of New York believe it or not we are HAPOY with where we live and we prefer small towns and knowing everyone and being polite rather than not knowing anyone but your group of stuck of friends and scoffing at everyone else who you classify as below you! Of anything we potty y'all for not knowing hospitality and politness
