Georgia?

Drive I-275 around Atlanta during rush hour, then get back to me ...

Yeah, there's several of those stereotypes I disagree with also. I found New York City to be quite friendly when I visited there a couple years back. They were much more forthcoming to strangers than people around LA would have been.


Yeah, NYC is a lot of things -- and not all of them good -- but after living there for 15-ish years, one thing I wouldn't say is that the people there are rude, especially to tourists. In fact, the extent to which most people will go out of their way to be nice to tourists is kinda mind blowing. I've seen people go several subway stops out of their way, even making different connections, just to make sure a tourist got off at the right place. Who knows. :shrug:


+1. They might not have all sorts of over-polite manners, usually very quick and to the point, but new yorkers actually love to give directions.

The State as a whole, though has some other parts that are pretty rude. Once you get into some rural areas, it can be hit and miss. Some really surly redneck areas, and then there is Long Island which has some nuttiness too.
The people in and around Buffalo are extremely nice.

I think the state got a bad representation on the "best scenery" one. Sure, it isn't in the hawaii, Alaska, Colorado, California ranking, but it has some of the best scenery and variety of scenery east of the Mississippi. Adirondacks, Catskills, Niagra Falls, Thousand Islands, Fingerlakes, Montauk, Orient Point, The Hudson River at the highlands, Fire Island, etc.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

The production lines for the 747, 777, and 787. Sadly, it is a no camera tour (not even cell phones) so I can't show anything cool. I did see a big posterboard labeled SST on a cubicle in one of the engineering areas near the 787 production line...

i do know the seattle super sonics were named because of the plane

an amazing story, the sst ... they just couldn't make it happen

A "dance" move.

Place your legs as far apart an you can comfortably, bend your knees, and hump air.

It's been called that for a long time, actually.

But it's only just now become a meme.
