Yup. The people who prefer the west who come in here crying and complaining, trying to change the subject from beautiful to something else to prove they are "right".... over a matter of opinion.

Much like yourself.

That is why I keep repeating "Both areas are extremely beautiful and it is up to the beholder to choose which one they find more beautiful." And you guys keep repeating "Nuh, uh!... you guys are wrong because the west is "better" in some related but different category."

Not especially impressive if the only thing you consider is size (and we all know size isn't what really counts) but quite beautiful and worth seeing.

All these threads North vs. South, East vs. West, etc.!

Can't we all just agree that the Midwest is terrible?

j/k

So you responded in a particular manner in which you knew you would be completely ignored. Good way of avoiding actually addressing the points made. ("Good" could be replaced with "cowardly.")

I'm tired of dealing with your bias and defensiveness. I felt like formatting my points like that, so I did. Everyone who reads this thread can see my response. I couldn't care less if you respond to my points, you have yet to make a resonable point or respond to one of my points in a rational, mature way. However, feel free to respond if you desire, I'm just not going to take more time to format my response in the way you would like it to be.

Lol, yeah "bias", when I repeat over and over that both are beautiful areas and it is up to the individual to choose which is more beautiful. While you, on the other hand, say that people who find the east to be more beautiful are comparable to people who think fat people are hot.

Yeah, I am the biased one.

You didn't format crap. You opted for a lack of formatting because you are lazy and specifically chose to address points I made in a format that I wouldn't read because you wanted to take the cowardly way out of the debate.

I already explained that it is a HUGE pain in the ass to respond to your lazy "format". You apologized for it, supposedly sincerely, and then you did it again to spite me because you disagree with my message and would rather not have an honest debate.

Childish.

Funny, you respond in an intentionally annoying way... on purpose... and then call me immature? I think your responses are crap, but at least I don't try to force you into doing ALL the formatting work or respond in an intentionally PITA fashion... like you do.

You have already admitted you don't want an honest debate. You are the immature one.

You have yet to make a reasonable point, and further, almost EVERYTHING you have said is off-topic.

I won't. Since you choose to be lazy and intentionally annoying. It is funny that you expect other people to take the time to reformat your lazy response, and you defend it with, "I am not going to take the time..." Again... childish.


Regardless, you already admitted you don't want me to read or respond to it, because you are too cowardly for honest debate.

So what I am getting out of this thread is that beauty is subjective.

This is what I find beautiful....

You find these on both sides of the mississippi. So I'll take the middle.

Here is a simple way to quantify East vs West beauty. Look at the National Parks of the United States. There are 58 National Parks total. There are only 13 National Parks east of Lebanon, Kansas, the geographical center of the lower 48 and only 16 east of Belle Fourche, North Dakota, the geographical center of all 50 states (this is a bit of a misleading definition of east vs west because of Alaska's location). Also, consider the size of the national parks of the east vs the west. The West simply dominates in terms special ecosystems and what people consider worth protecting. It really isn't even close.
