  • What do you love/ hate about your hometown?

    Okay, I haven't seen a thread like this anywhere.

    In this thread talk about what you hate or love about your city that you live in.

    I'll start. I live in Sioux Falls. And the reason why it is so awesome is because when we get a real snow storm about once every three years. Where we have to cancel school on account of so much snow. The reason I say that is because, South Dakota's second largest city, Rapid City, gets out of school June 14th and they were supposed to be out on the 31st of May...

    Something I hate about Sioux Falls is that there are too many packers fans (even though the packers fans think the other way around).

      I wonder who that is...


      Sioux Falls has many more Viking fans than Packer fans, that's a fact.


      The thing I like about Sioux Falls is how clean it is. Essentially like one big suburb.

      Something I hate... The bars there suck and people are allowed to smoke at the bars. Also, too many small town Dbags with afflictions T shirts and pimped out hondas.

      What do the vikings and marijuana have in common? Every time you put them in a bowl
      they get smoked.

            Seriously? Didn't think you were from Europe?

                  Well, my hometown is back in CA., so I'll just talk about the city I currently live in.

                  Love: It still has a somewhat small town feel, and is a great place to raise my kids.

                  Hate: The school system in Bossier City, where I live, is much different then where I teach, Shreveport. Bossier City seems to operate under the "Good 'Ol Boy" system. Since my wife nor I am from here, we may never be able to switch up and teach here, which we would like to do to be closer to our kids. I've seen teaching positions go to people who were less qualified because they "attended that school as a child". It makes me sick.

                    Well, I kind of identify with two cities as my hometown. So, I'll talk about both.

                    Texas
                    Hate: You cannot buy liquor in city limits, only beer and wine. There isnt any thing to do because it's a little suburb. You have to drive to other towns/downtown to do any thing. There are cops every where, but never where they are needed. You see cops all the time but they are patrolling for kids. They could care less that adults are going 10 miles over the speed limit on roads near schools. They just want to bust that kid for going 3 miles over near the high school. Oh, and every thing closes at like 9 on weekdays and 10 on weekends, except the beer and wine stores.
                    Like: You can walk any where in town, even at night, and never have to worry about your own safety.

                    California
                    Hate: It's a town which is no where near any major city. Rich yuppies from Silicon Valley are moving out there because they can build big houses for cheap because you get a sweet mountain view, even though it's driving up property taxes. It's a generally low-educated populace, as UC-Chico is the biggest 4-year college in the area.
                    Like: You can ski/snowboard any day that the park is open. Mt Shasta is not that far and you're 3 hours from the coast.

                      I love in Green Bay

                      I love the fact that I have all the advantages of living in a big city, but none of the disadvantages. Traffic isn't an issue. Crime isn't much of an issue. but, we still have a professional sports team, and plenty of good bars and restaurants.

                      But, the people can be kinda dumb.

                      also, Prince, do you work for Georgia Pacific?

                        I live in a town called Aalsmeer. Look it up on google maps if you want to know where it is.

                        Like: my first school was only 100 yards from my house. when I was a kid everyone was pretty much my age, so always plenty of playmates. Not much traffic.

                        Dislike: boy where do I start? it's small, there's absolutely nothing here shop-wise. The town is too close to amsterdam, so all the stores and shops go there instead. Even though Amsterdam is 20 miles away it takes an hour to get there (public transport sucks). Most people here are simpletons. It's pretty deserted around here. I hate this town. I really, really hate this town. There's so many things wrong with this place I can't even put it down in words. Let me put it this way: if you were to come here happy and smiling, stayed here for 20 years, you'd leave clinically depressed.

                          No but my father does. His work is a constant reminder for me to do well in school so I can get a quality education and eventually a well paying, enjoyable job so I don't get stuck having to settle working at some place like a mill.

                          I love how everything is easy to go to in Green Bay as well. If I need anything I can just head down to the Bay Park Square area and I am likely to find it.

                            We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

                              I live in Emmaus, PA, a suburb of Allentown, which you can see on maps in Eastern PA near NJ.

                              Like: Not overly crazy, real laid back place with laid back people. The mayor is a friend of my family. Schools are great for education, rated #2 in PA about 5 years ago IIRC. Relatively safe with lots of places to go fishing. Within driving distance to New York City, Philly, and the Jersey shore, if you plan on going. You generally don't have to worry about being in danger from mother nature, but every once in a while there is an awesome blizzard.

                              Hate: Not much to do for a social scene. Me and my buddies usually make a littel fire and just chill at night when the weather is nice. (I like that, but not many do) It get really humid, and that sucks. Really though, that is it, i like where I live pretty much, actually.
