"Chicago isn't the east coast"

Thanks Captain Obvious.


I mentioned I'm from the east coast several times. I just spent time in Chicago. All the dumb "homer" comments make no sense, since DC is really home. I just prefer LA/California.

Chicago women beat most east coast cities anyway.

You are from DC now? You hardly post about DC, I bet you know next to nothing about DC. If you are from DC, which is questionable, you left when you were very young. You are a midwesterner, which is the bulk of the transplants to California, especially southern California.

I've made numerous references to being from DC since I've been on this forum. I've told you that before. I think I told you in this thread. It's sad.

I 'm born and raised in the DC area, 21 years. All my family is in the DC area. So too freaking bad if you don't beliieve me.
I don't believe most of the crap you say about anything. You're the one who has to keep changing their name. Because......??

I'm an east coast guy who lives in LA. I've met tons of east coast people in LA. More than anywhere else, actually . A good amount from Boston, NYC, DC, New England, Philly etc.

Looking at your statistics, you never posted in the DC subforum but have in the Chicago subforum. So your first 21 years you were in DC or some suburb? What was your highschool and what's your current cell-phone area code?

I'm pretty sure most "knowledgeable" people wouldn't take your comment seriously. .
Let's do it on a point based system, if we gave your "second favorite place" Chicago a 50, LA would be about a 500, if not more. Being your second favorite place seems to be a pretty useless prospect in that regard. I doubt you use it for anything but flawed attempts to sound objective when you're called out.

Honestly, if one were to go though your posts, it will be harder find things you have said that aren't silly. Also, I would love to hear who your idea of knowledgeable posters are in this forum. Guessing those would be useful in future ignore list entries.

So the answer to my question of what did I say about Chicago. .

You don't have a clue.

That seems about right for you.

Even if the guy was telling the truth about living in DC and Chicago, his knowledge level in regards to them are very low to outright ignorant. I've seen native DC poster call him out when he's tried to get involved in their discussion (and guess what, it was for LA boasting purposes), if he had the guts to get involved more, as according to him he knows so much about the place, I would be surprised if he isn't called out more. Same goes for Chicago.

It's a pretty flawed logic anyways that if you live in a particular city, you are just automatically educated about it. It's also hard to be objective about places when you look at your favorite city from such a huge cheerleader point of view.

Let's play you game. Point out to us the "knowledgeable" things you have posted about Chicago.

Given that over 95% of your time here are spent cheerleading for LA and taking petty nonsensical jabs at those pitted against it, my suggestion seems easier.

Those are some sad assumptions.
I don't post because I don't care what goes on there anymore.

I can say the same thing about you. You might be from California but you don't know anything about it.

If you actually were..

See how that stupid game goes ?
