What did you do for the 4th of July, Go grill in your neighbors backyard? Take your family to Outback and go home and relax?
The fact that you think there's something wrong with that says volumes about your values and character.

Who said I think something is wrong with that? I'm just pointing out how we're boring. We also have a really good overall quality of life, so there's that.

Those cities are not typical, most American downtown's don't have residents that are 20ft from each other.

Here is a population density map of Minneapolis. the downtown area is on the top.

American downtown's are basically just office parks.

Here is the center of Oklahoma City

I didn't mean literally rural, I just meant there is no urban energy in most American cities to the point it feels downright bogan. Columbus and Indianapolis are great examples. I apologize to JerseyGirl for being rude, I let my annoyance get the best of me. A lot of people cyberbully me on this forum and I just couldn't take it anymore.

Well maybe people wouldn't "cyberbully" you if you wrote like a coherent adult and didnt sound like a child who expects the world to be perfect. Toughen up kid, seriously you seem so oblivious to the world and yeah that deserves a little ridicule.


How about his, why don't you fly to Paris and live in a tent under the Eiffel Tower? Wait, you can't afford the plane ticket and the meanie weenie government doesn't give you enough to take care of it.


I pray my child grows up to be nothing like you.
