Every city ever known to man has stereotypes that are false. If the place has more than 1000 people, chances are that not every one of them are alike.

If a place has over a couple dozen people chances are they are not alike... you don't need to be over 1000 for that to happen. Agreed 100% that every city, or every size has some stereotypes that are false.

Denver-We are not up to our eyeballs in snow all winter. In fact, the "typical" winter day is sunny and dry, generally with a high in the 40s-50s.

San Francisco. Not everyone here is homeless, gay, and/or a hippie. Those groups only add up to 25%, tops.

In the Syracuse area, Oswego County is gets more snow and the snowbelt ends around Brewerton/Route 31 near Cicero. As you go further south, the snowfall average decreases, with towns south of Syracuse averaging around 70-90 inches, give or take.


Do you have any notion whatsoever how ludicrous these statements are to those of us from places that get very little snow at all?! LOL

You think those amounts are quite a bit, eh? Try Marquette, MI or Boyne Mountain, MI that average 150-200 inches of snowfall a season. Some areas average over 300 inches. The western mountains of the US get more, but few people live up in the mountains in the West...

I was 13 and at camp in North Carolina, and a girl asked me if I took an airboat to school. Cajuns are awesome, but you won't find them here.

What GraniteStater said..... Seriously, that isn't anything when you consider the equipment available up here to clear snow and plenty of popular areas get snow within those ranges.

But the fact that more young people are now staying here after graduating and city population growth is actually net positive for first time since the 50s is a great indicator that momentum already achieved is about to take a big leap forward.
When I think of Pittsburgh I think of a bunch of yahoos who know nothing of the nuances of the game of football.

We New Englanders of course know no peers in this realm.

They understand the nuances. It's simply that they never get around to discussing those because they prefer to rail about the ongoing NFL conspiracy to punish the Steelers more severely than other teams for all infractions and why the Patriots haven't won a SB since Spygate.

Personally, I was a Jets fan at the time I moved here and nowadays don't care about the NFL much at all. Unfortunately the stereotype of Steelermania being all consuming here is actually true.
