i went back and checked. so if you take something out of that that is not there and/or failed to read that part and just skimmed posts then thats on you.

either way, this is ridiculous. i'm done responding to you.
LOL, and like I said, you can say "IMO, personally, I feel that," etc. and still be dead wrong just like you were.

Oh, and I'm not your "son," believe that. My dad doesn't say silly ish like the statements you made in this thread.

But you said that NoVA offers more than NC, which is a statement that can be objectively verified or disproved. Given that we were talking about things like sports teams and such, the fact of the matter is that your statement was inaccurate. Tacking on "just my opinion" at the end doesn't change that fact and doesn't actually make your statement an opinion. You were just flat-out wrong, end of story.
I have read all nine pages for this thread, and can I just say something? Saying that NoVa offers more IS in fact an opinion because it may offer things that one person may like over another. It depends on what THEY like to do. That state may offer more of what HE likes. For example, I feel that New York offers more for ME in terms of what I want and like. NoVa may offer more of what Eek likes, so it is an opinion.

I voted NY, but I'm thinking neither would be for me. NC is a lot more expensive than people think. NYC is great if you make a million dollars a year. I'll pass on either. Give me Maryland.

Maryland? Where in Maryland? You must mean the boonies in Maryland. Because Maryland would be a more expensive place to live than NC.

New York, the South does not appeal to me.

and Upstate NY. Actually, cost of living is roughly the same between Upstate NY and NC.

I don't think that NC has an across-the-board cost of living. It varies between regions and urban vs rural.

I know and that's how it is here too. Even in the same town, school district, etc. you can see some variation in that regard. For instance, in the suburban school district I live in, you can find homes that range from $60-400,000, give or take. Crime isn't much of an issue in the more affordable areas either.

But the problem is that he did not add that caveat. He was speaking in absolute, flat-out terms and even one thing he did mention that he likes (major league pro sports) is something that NC has that NoVA doesn't so he was still wrong.
