Happy as a clam.

This is the dumbest conversation I've ever been involved in.

It's OK. I always think of the small states vs. large states situation our Founding Fathers had to deal with every time this metro vs. city proper things comes up. Nobody's happy no matter how much you try to make it work. It's kind of funny. Don't get me started on dumb conversations I've had on here...girl...

Anywho, I think Philly seems like it would work.

Funny, especially, because I'm not against using metro numbers. I just didn't know that's what the poster I mentioned was talking about, as no one said metro. Before you know it, I'm getting called wrong and an idiot. Ah well. Silly business.

Yes, BACK TO THE ORIGINAL MESSAGE, I'd imagine the OP, as a Pennsylvanian, is probably familiar with Philly, but maybe not. I like Philly, and it could work, but it depends on what the OP is looking for.

Now lets all carry on, eh?
More attitude...you were wrong, and you can't quite admit it. Very admirable.

And you DID highjack the thread...two strikes and no apology or humility.

Okay. Look. I really am trying to let this go, but re-read the thread. What was I wrong about? Was I wrong for not knowing that folks were talking about metro area populations rather than city populations, when no indication was given that we were talking about metro?

I was confused on some numbers, asked for clarification, and got jumped on by people who... I guess have nothing better to do.

I want to move on, and have said as much. So, what do you say? Let's can it, huh?

What about the OP's post? Let's talk about that.
