That doesn't offend me. I'm from Long Island which is 9 hours from Buffalo. So, the rent is the highest in the nation and using your logic, everyone wants to love there. By the way, while you travelled throughout 'Dixie' as you put it; did you ever come across a college campus? What is "ever where"?

okay, a simple spelling mistake, big deal. I'm supposed to be offended by people that have been posting on this thread for years? Your lives must be wicked dull, if you even have lives.

I get it... My iPhone auto corrects and I end up looking like a fool. Just f'n with you.

By the way, NY is an awesome place to be. There is a wide dichotomy of people, class, and education. If it exits in the world, you can also find it in NY.

I graduated from Harvard. I believe I outrank you in colleges. My suggestion for you would be to pack your belongings and go back up north where you fit in and belong. I doubt that anyone here would miss you and the people here who know you here would probably assist you in the move.

Taxes are very high in NY. Mine were $18,000 prior to moving to NC. Now they're $4,000.

Ugh. I have lived in north and south. Not all northeners have the Same opinions of Southerners. I would hope that everyone reading this realizes that its possible not to give much credence to stereotypes. I find it difficult to connect to Southerners because I do talk faster, open up about myself quicker, and do other things that arent 'done' here, but it doesnt make me think less of others. It makes me frustrated that I couldnt cross the cultural bridge and make a connection with someone. There are nice people and mean people everywhere. most people fall somewhere in between. There are smart people and dumb people everywhere. I will say that the only times Ive ever seen people with no teeth are in the inner cities up north and in the rural south, or missing teeth, I should say. I definitely think that the people in central PA or upstate NY are going to be totally different from people living in NYC or Pittsburgh, in terms of intellect and sophistication, but as with anywhere, its a general impression, and not an Absolute Truth.

People vary greatly with one state, so its not always a morth vs. south thing with intellect, sophistication, warmth and openess. Ive met a lot of southerners, some I understand perfectly fine, others are hard for me to understand. I do find it hilarious though that none of the actors on Nashville are from the South. I mean Im a damn Yankeevan even 'ah' can tell! Lol. Southerners shouldnt take what comes out of Hollywood as being what Northerners think. Hollywood isnt in the North, for starters, and not everyone believes everything they see on tv anywY.

When I first lived in the South, I just figured Southerns just talked funny. After getting to know Southerners, I have come to realize they are much less intelligent and less civilized than Northerners
They speak a language that barely resembles English and they act like violent animals.
Is it the heat, or what?
Lol, people from New York all sound like guidos. It's like whenever one talks you wonder if you're starring in a really bad mafia movie.

At least southerners include the letter r in their speech. And we can feed ourselves without a can opener. We know what clean air is, and we control our guns better.

I'm from Georgia, about as south as you can get unless you go to Florida. You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about "Life Coach". I actually just watched a documentary in one of my ADVANCED college courses (that's right, us southerners are intelligent and we have good looks!) about how much higher test scores are in the South versus the North mainly New York to be exact. There reading scores was 12% where as Georgia was 43%. There is a HUGE difference between a southerner with southern hospitality and a redneck. Not all of us are rednecks. Also besides education, us southern women have better, bangin' bodies where as them Yankee women are constantly starving themselves to be anorexic. Grow up and how about YOU get a better education because you are obviously as dumb as a rock if you think by being a complete asshole is going to make us get an education. WE HAVE A BETTER EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IN THE SOUTH THAN THE NORTH! Get your facts straight!

What?

The people in the south are exceptionally obese.

them Yankee women
Really? Is this from your ADVANCED English studies?

Grow up and how about YOU get a better education because you are obviously as dumb as a rock if you think by being a complete asshole is going to make us get an education.
I don't know where to start on that one - maybe they'll address this in your SUPER DUPER ADVANCED classes.

First of all, anything compared to NY usually takes in NYC. NYC has certain areas where a cesspool would be preferred.

As for education, New York is a leader of educated morons. All those Masters Degrees in sociology, psychology, teaching, etc., so don't claim a classroom degree makes you more intelligent.

How many kids go to college because they don't want to get a job & mom/dad are paying for it or the gov't (me). One used to get a job because one needed medical coverage. Well, now the jackass in the WH has taken care of that. You don't have to get a job until 26 now. And what do we have then? A bunch of educated fools who have NEVER had a job & come out of college at 26 thinking they deserve to make 100k.

And for those in middle management - the number one concern is that the managers don't know how to write. Why is that? Because the school system has deemed proper English to be unnecessary - as long as the student feels good about him/herself.

Now, this is not a southern or northern issue. I have been to both parts of the country. This is a liberal problem. The liberals have used the fallacy of education to spark these arguments. The only thing that is true is this - you can't seem to teach idiots how stupid they really are. And Liberals love controllable idiots.

Bles your lil heart,arent you glad your not here!!! And what exactly IS the point of this post
Massachusetts was voted to have the best ed in the nation ( think Harvard people). Northern states are also not afraid of same sex marriage, and do not believe in creationism, flat Earth etc. I believe Florida and Missisippi had the worst schools. As far as weather goes, we can't control nature( no kidding)! Homewoner's insurance is cheap in the North, while in Fl it might run in the thousands.
Also most of tea party in congress come from the South. That should tell you something.

A reason to move somewhere else has to involve more than weather. For instance, do you have contacts where you are going? Also what is the culture like ? The South is generally regarded as "red" while the North is "blue" and generally more tolerant We take everybody, and don't tell people to "Yankee go home" or should I say, "Redneck go home."
