Depends on if you share or not. I mean, that's not very good bowling etiquette, let alone bein un neighborly.

It wasn't on the list for a very specific reason...

Like anywhere, depends on your ability to educate yourself.

Hillbonics: Learn to Speak Southern West Virginian (http://www.hillbonics.com/index.htm - broken link)

Besides West Virginian, you'll find other languages to learn here too, i.e., French, Russian, Arabic, Mandarin, Hindi, etc., and no offense to the languages I've not mentioned. Probably the only languages not spoken fluently here are illegal alien and political correctness. There are occasional minor outbreaks of these contageous diseases of stupidity. Some folks cure it with bow and arrows, rifles, shotguns, etc., but I prefer a flame thrower . . handy when it snows too, keeping the sidewalk clear. Don't get to use it much in summer except to swat mosquitoes, but hope springs eternal ACLU types will forget West Virginia has a border.

Don't forget Yinzerese, spoken mainly in the Northern Panhandle, but occasionally as far south as Clarksburg.

Not trying to be rude but how can people say that the people of Appalachia are tough workers when many are in poverty and a good amount unemployed..The excuse,"We grew up here and are now confined" doesn't work for me..I realize they don't value money as much as others, which i have no problem with.

He does have some colorful costumes. Deleted it from the post though, sorry. Realized there are still brainwashed people here who haven't awakened from their stupor yet, and facts tend to upset their sensibilities.

I'll put this one back in.



Apparently, somebody in Tennesse agrees with my assessment of socialism . . thank you.



Somebody named DOW Jones also agrees with my assessment, go figure.

Do you know how to make a still with spare parts from a car in the junkyard? I thought not.
