Did you actually read his post? If so, you would realize its outrageous, and made in jest. He wrote it during a time when there were many people from other states pouring in, and making unfounded comments about how horrible NJ is.

OT: Anybody seen BadFish around lately? Hope all is well.

Ok folks, this forum has really opened my eyes. This place is a hellhole that should be sunken into the Atlantic Ocean! First of all, if you dare cross the bridge from Pennsylvania or Delaware, or step over the New York State line, your skin will begin to melt, and the fleas of a thousand camels will infest your armpits! There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Absolutely NO ONE can afford anything here-even air is too expensive to breathe AND its taxed! All the houses you see lining the streets are a mere illusion-just movie props brought in by the evil state legislature in order to lure unsuspecting people into settling into this god forsaken pit of despair.

Once the hapless traveler enters the so called "Garden State," he will be set upon by Bloods, Crips, illegal aliens, zombies, and the occasional rabid chihuahua. They will attempt to drag him into their dens of sin and corruption known as Trenton, Newark, and Camden. Meanwhile, the state legislature will show up at his door demanding $30,000,000 in property taxes in order to pay for such things as education, fire and police protection. However, in New Jersey, the education system ranks just behind Afghanistan and students are routinely killed for doing WELL on standardized tests. Fire departments actually set homes on fire rather than put them out, and the police will simply shoot you on site.

Those who are trapped in the 8th circle of New Jersey do have hope though. Just a few hundred miles down I-95 is an oasis known as the Carolinas. There one can buy a 10,000 square foot mansion with an in-ground pool, servants, a massuese, and Ferrari for a mere $10,000. The state actually pays taxes to the property owners, resulting in an extra income of about $20,000 per year. Every home comes complete with a 5,000 acre lot with a lemonade spring and a grove of bubblegum trees. The police officers encourage speeding and give drivers citations for NOT talking on their cell phones while driving. Every child in the school district is admitted to their choice of Princeton, Harvard, or Yale on a full scholarship! The teachers not only work for free, but they also pay the students to attend school and give out bonuses for homework. The average lifespan of a human being in the Carolinas is about 150 years, and the weather is a constant 70 degrees with sunny skies and it never rains. Plants in the Carolinas do not require any water whatsoever.

Thank you so, so much City Data for making me see that my home state is actually an evil black hole threatening to suck the entire east coast into the abyss!
Lighten up Francis.

Hmmm...somewhat cryptic and scary!

Anyway, to my faithful defenders Tahiti and CuCullin, the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. I've been so lost in the world of mortgages, brokers, realtors, houses, etc...I haven't had much time to pen any whacky observations about the great Garden State. However, it may all be coming to an end soon if our latest offer pans out. Stay tuned for more details...
