Maryland is far more expensive than anywhere in North Carolina.

NoVa may offer more of what Eek likes, so it is an opinion.
thank you. i have no idea what this guy's agenda is. anybody that is capable of comprehending what they've read in my posts can see where i've said that its my personal opinion even before this guy made it his God given duty to go back and forth with me over absolutely nothing.

even if he THOUGHT that i was trying to pass off my opinion as fact, when he said as much i specifically stated, multiple times that my posts in this thread are my OPINION.

yet he chooses to go on about nothing.

again, the posts in question all state that they're my opinion somewhere in the posts, unedited and after he started making a big deal over nothing i told him that my opinions about nc vs va are my opinions...

ridiculous.

as someone that has lived in charlotte and went to school in NC for 4 years, i am aware that NC has major sports. reread the damn posts instead of skimming or whatever it is that you're doing.

there is no major league baseball team in nc. and nova has access to (and most ppl follow) dc teams, not to mention its college sports scene (which i'm not into but somebody else brought up nc's college sports scene). sports was never a *major* thing as to why i prefer va over nc anyway (i'm a giants, yankees and knicks fan so...) but its something that you chose to focus on.

thats fine but let me have my opinions. why get butt hurt over them?

i feel that va is better than nc and thats my personal opinion.
personal.
opinion.
personal opinion.
personal.
OPINION.

****.

i like the diversity within the job market better there, the houses and their proximity to what i feel is a "real city," the public transportation, it "feels" cleaner, etc.

hop off and let me prefer one thing over the other.

Didn't you say you were done? You just can't help it, can you?

As I said earlier, you can like one more than the other and think one is better than the other which is a personal opinion. I never disputed that. But you said that NoVA offers more than NC, and you never limited that to things that you preferred, but spoke in a broadbased fashion. THAT is where you were incorrect. Even with sports NC still wins because like you said, the sports teams are in DC and MD, not NoVA. What one has access to and what one actually has are two totally different things.

It is. Has that creepy Appalachian-ness to it. I could tell you some interesting stories having grown up out there.

But there are some really good folks out there as well.

I picked NY for sentimental value, but I'm rather fond of NC as well. It truly feels like New York's southern brother.

You would be quite correct in that assumption!

Tons of similarities. Appalachians after all.

how so? Some of the landscape may be similar but the cities are nothing alike. The people are nothing alike. The cultures are nothing alike. Aside from minor geographical differences they are worlds apart.
