Sorry, I just think it's funny all of the posts about religion and bugs that I see on this board -- I've seen more discussion about those two topics here over the last couple of days than I have in my daily life in NC over the last year.

To summarize:
a) The bugs aren't bad here, not unless you're on the coast (I don't think there's anywhere on the east coast immune from that), and
b) Whatever religion you are - or aren't - you will find others of a like mind. If you decide to move out in the middle of nowhere, you may find your choices limited; any of the cities and large towns in NC, however, can probably accomodate a great majority of the religious beliefs found in America.

I didn't realize that we had a bug or religion problem in NC until I found this forum.

Default Praise the Lord!

Somebody else saw the bug discussion as obsessive too. However, we'll pray about it and bring it up at Wednesday night prayer meeting. If there are any left, I'm sure they are santified and filled with the spirit. Now, we'll all sing a verse of 'Bring them in'. If you don't know that hymn, it's time to bug out.

It's funny because the first thing people say when I tell them I'm moving to NC is.. isn't their alot of bug's? In the 3 times I have been their I saw 1 cockroach and one huge a_s spider!

The funny thing about the whole "bug" conversation? Bug has been my nickname since I was 2! My mom and dad still call me bug. My first car, you guessed it a VW Bug.

LOL!

Once we exhaust bugs and religion, it'll be time to move on to roadkill. That's how you can tell that Spring has sprung: by the number of dead possums on the road. And, I swear, this state has to have the dumbest birds in the whole country. What IS IT with these dumb clucks that they have to fly across the road at windshield level?

Last time I was out I couldn't keep count of the dead racoons that I saw on the side of the road.

Finally a thread you can 'love'.

I went to Alaska a few years ago and brought home some Reindeer meat for all of my friends to taste. Now one of them would go near it and I kept hearing them whining about not eating Rudolph! Maybe I should have labeled it Road Kill.

Well, I can vouch for this sort of thing to happen around here

Reindeer actually sounds tasty. I was just introduced to bison meat a few months back. Makes it hard to go back to moo-burgers.

Just stuff that reindeer in a can and print this label off. Mmm-mmm good
