Oh for crying out loud. Are you still trying to convince people you're not from Texas?

Must be either the city or Long Island.
'cause that's all there is to New York, right....!?

Oh, wait, that's right, I forgot Orange County, 'cause that's "Upstate" New York, you know. Crazy

If i can't convince myself, the least i can do is lie to other people.

Let me give you JG's quick rules of geography:

1). North of Orange County, NY is Canada with the limited exception of the Adirondacks which a bit like the Guam of New York. It's somehow part of the state but in the middle of any ocean of Canada.

2) Jersey City is the north pole and therefore 20 miles in any direction is South Jersey (i.e. Sussex County)

3) The Mason Dixie line is in Bayonne, NJ so travelling further south than about 35th Street in Bayonne means you are in Kentucky.

4) Anything northeast of the Bronx is Boston and therefore sucks the big one accordingly. (Some people refer to the outlier parts of Boston as the eastern parts of Westchester, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine and the rest of Massachusetts which includes the County of Rhode Island.)

5). It is a myth that anything at all exists between New Jersey and California. Route 80 is actually a Super Mario Brothersesque warp zone that allows you to just pop up in the Bay Area.

There will be a test on this on Monday so I hope you are taking notes.

Flies shmies. Only gay (notthattheresanythingwrongwiththat) people would let their climbing itinerary be dictated by insects.

Exactly my point, brother! Only the mentally handicapped would think the Yankees suck. Maybe you are from NY!

You know, it's really bad form to hi-jack a thread, even if it's brief. The point of this thread is to discuss how only severely mentally handicapped people would think the Yankees suck with the subtopic discussing exactly how insignificant the Massachusettes county of Rhode Island is.

Now, where was I (see, I almost lost my train of thought).... Rhode Island: Rhode Island is the... um.... it's the ehh... wait, let me start again. Rhode Island is um the... wait, where's Rhode Island again?

A half hour outside of central boston. Don't worry... New Englanders think as little of Rhode Island as you do.

Anytime you start a thread about the Northeast, this is more or less how it ends up.

in a slightly related matter, did anyone see the article that says that Boston is no. 3 in the country for bad drivers and mostly likely to commit road rage? Now, it didn't actually say who is 1 and 2, but if we are not #1, then it must be NYC. Who would the other one be? Somewhere in New Jersey?
