Madison, Flowood, Jackson, and Hattiesburg all have plenty of shopping venues for people of all class. Hattiesburg has everything any college student aged 18-24 could ever want, and a nice shopping mall too.

The Gulfport-Biloxi area has at least 11 casinos, and ranks 4th in the country for having the most casinos in the immediate vicinity. The casinos there are almost all beach front and extremely nice, people come from all over the south to go to those casinos.

Of COURSE Atlanta will have more shopping venues than anywhere in Mississippi. Atlanta is FIVE TIMES the size of Jackson, Mississippi's largest city. It's like saying you would expect the same shopping venues and opportunities in Albany New York as compared with New York City! They are on COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LEVELS!

If you need good shopping, dining, etc, you have to go to one of the larger cities in the state, which are Jackson, Gulfport, Biloxi, Hattiesburg, or Southaven. The rest of the state is exceedingly rural and does not offer much in the way of shopping. This is common sense.

As for a 21 year old (who does not hunt or partake in other barbaric redneck activities) This state has to be one of the worst states i lived in. The gambling is also bad; i guess its fine for the lower class people. I mean its nothing like Las vegas or even CA.

P.S have lived in 6 states only in the south; yet this is the first one that i felt im in a 3rd world country.
Oh come on its not bad here. I will agree we are a little red neck here but we focus more on whats in the inside and not what we ware. Glad you did visit come back soon

Right. Of course the question that is hanging in the air, and no one has asked, is, "Why would a 21 year old (Lowky told us he was 21) person be stuck anywhere he didn't want to be?"

And the answer is:
Because he is not Southern. If a 21 year old Southerner was someplace that made him feel miserable, then he would gather up his stuff and leave.
Not true with other brands of Americans because they trap themselves in a long, drawn out adolescence with lasts into their 30's! THEN sometimes they realize they are all grown up and can live wherever they want.

The idea of a 21 year old adult talking about being trapped is ironic, hilarious, pitiful, disheartening, and will probably keep me awake for hours tonight.

Jeez. I need a beer.

One of the standard techniques in soccer is the slide tackle, which is little more than trying to hide in plain sight a drop kick to the face, body, or knees of the opponent.

Something tells me that soccer is much more barbaric than football.


People tend to overlook the level of violence in soccer. Heck I kicked a guy in the ankle pretty hard tonight...

But football still has more injuries. There's an injury or two almost every single game at the NFL level.

See? And everyone told you how clever you were to be taking on all that debt. Now, you have to ask yourself, who works for who?

It is still possible, Boys and Girls, to get a college degree without student loans.

A few months of basic training and AIT, and one weekend a month...

That's because most guys who play football are little Nancy Boy sissies.

Seriously, if you require that much body armor and need a breather after every play, take up golf. There's no need for armor, and most of your day is spent walking around enjoying the well manicured lawn.

MAN U! Our red flag will always fly, because MAN U will never die!
