I can slide a little on the New York one. Maybe she meant country like “hicksville” or “uncivilized”. My parents are from New York City and they will swear on their firstborn that anyone not living inside the boroughs is an uneducated hick who should be pitied. God forbid you live somewhere like Buffalo or upstate(that’s about as incomprehensible to them as people who hate NYC). Upstate NY to the city dwellers(I know) is about as country as it gets.
‘The country’ probably alludes to the suburbs and green space outside New York City but in New York state, jeez. I’m in Canada, when we’re leaving the city we say we’re going to the country, as in countryside.
I can attest that living in upstate NY is much like living in a foreign country. In fact, I’d say it’s similar to living in such foreign nations as Tennessee or South Carolina. We have very few blacks and lots of tractors and corn. Plus a bunch of religious zealots and Republicans(eww). It’s kind of gross really.
I don’t see what’s wrong with any of these! I love connect four, when your buddy pulls out the wrong block and the tower falls and you all yell CONNECT FOUR! hilarious! New York-the country is a fine place, full of charming and polite people, it’s a shame New york city isn’t so peaceful. And stonehenge sure looks good that time of year, global warming has really hit England hard though it appears.
I love both NYC and Upstate NY. I am one of the rare few who can be happy with either quiet rural open-spaced farmland or noisy bustling cities. Well, I like a little of both. I can’t really take being in one certain place for too long.
Though, I agree very much with what christisgay (25) said, it’s the people that make rural areas unbearable.
Ah yes Ben, All Americans are so incredibly stupid..everything is their fault. If they weren’t too busy eating mcdonalds and failing at school then you would probably be well liked, attractive and maybe even intelligent. Unfortunately, you’re right about Americans…so things must remain the way they are.
