On an unrelated note, I never have memorised in my head exactly how to spell it, but whenever I'm writing or typing the name it curiously always seems to work itself out correctly.
Hah, same here. I had to use spell check before I posted the thread.

When I saw this, I said to myself "uh-oh. this thread is gonna get ugly."

I don't know Jersey so I didn't vote, but we do have a ton of guidos on the North Shore of Boston, no doubt....

I have to choose jersey. As oyCrumbler stated Boston is a hell of a city and that gives mass. a huge boost. Massachusetts is a bit polished for my taste. I also think that Jersey is much more diverse, and that is important to me.

Haha, yes that's for sure. The only problem is they come to the South Shore (where I live). When I went to Marina Bay in Quincy this past weekend, a friend I was with bumped shoulders with some knucklehead with a blow-out and the next thing I knew we were surrounded by 20 dudes.

I remember visiting my buddy in Jersey and partying in Morristown, there were tons of tools with blow-outs there too. It's a borderline epidemic.

Massachusetts; primarily because of marriage equality.

New Jersey is too 'southern' for me.

New Jersey used to be a slave State. I call that SOUTHERN.

As I just said, ALL STATES WERE SLAVE STATES AT ONE POINT. Slaves were bought/sold in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Charleston, everywehere.

Now let's not let this destroy the thread. Don't reduce this to what just happened on the Hip-Hop/R&B thread.
