People never really grew up I guess. I don't get all liberal/cushy/diversity felling like some pretend to, I either like someone or I don't. It's far too prevalent, I agree. The older people get, the less flexible they are. It's certainly not just the Melbourne area, you have it everywhere.

At any rate, let's get this thread into something positive.

You could start a thread on a newbie's experience in your new town.

Think positive dude.

yes my nose is high, it would have to be in order to survive a mob of this sort.
I'm sorry, but you really are the drama queen. All you do is whinge about how hard your life has been, but in some other posts it seems you come from a quality family and have a solid upbringing. I hope you are successful and life is bountiful for you. When this happens, I challenge you to travel around this fine planet of ours, and visit some of those who really do have a hard life. I think you will find your trials and tribulations are miniscule in the face of the suffering and hardship that occurs on this great green earth. I'm going to venture and say you know little about true hardship. I'm sure there are others on these boards older than both of us who have seen some of what I speak of. You don't know how lucky you are to be from where you're from. Try and get some perspective, although I surmise that will only come from the tip of your nose as you look down on the rest.

first off a quality family doesn't necessarily mean affluent. so being from a quality family, of course there could still be hardships, but quality enough to be sheltered from much of it and aware as you get older.

im not the one that needs the lecturing but thanks for the insight. many people in melbourne dont know aspiration when its right in front of them. then there are those of you that just stand in the line of fire and take everything personal.

from what ive assessed from this discussion is that many of you move to melbourne to escape from the rest of the world to live within a small bubble, isolating yourselves from reality. sounds quite submissive if you ask me and like ive said earlier in this thread, melbourne is mostly for the retired, ultra-conservative, and the broke. (why is this so offensive?)

it has nothing to do with nightlife or things to do in the community, melbourne is in its own little corner of the world, and its "beauty" only comes comparative to places in the world that are much worse off.

sorry but there is more out there for me, my generation and others like me. i grew up and lived in melbourne for over 10 years, hardly limited to a bubble perspective. ive given nothing but the truth about the community and you bubble people want to deny it.

if thats the way you guys want it, thats fine, but from whatever perspective you have about someone like me, be sure to show a little respect and understanding, otherwise places like melbourne will always just be regarded as a second rate community as ive mentioned and unfortunately had to experience. in other words, enjoy your bubble but please grow up.

In response to this apparent generational/Class Warfare that folks are engaging in, it is apparent that the Original posters infor is being lost and this thread hijacked.
My suggestion is, get back to the information about the areas. The young man may consider moving to my area, near Seattle f he wants to be Hip. Oh, but watch out because there is nothing so wicked than all this cool guy money your making being sucked away by state and local taxes. Just know, it is the Liberal Government here doing that. You said your peace and we have heard the young lion roar. Just wait your turn to be the King of the Pride, and the responsibility it entails.
To the gentleman that said that the military is populated by non- Americans, last time I looked, most of the Blacks in the service were Americans and what to ya know, ALL the Puerto Ricans are Americans. You did 14 years in the Army? Musta got the pink slip with the boot in the 90's because you couldnt qualify to stay in.

You're obviously not a connoisseur/connoisseuse) of Walmart.

Try 'People of Walmart' before you come down too hard on the local Walmarts.

(I used to live in Mississippi ... the aisles in the local Walmart were much wider than they are here. ))

Why would you want to go to Walmart for entertainment?

Many of the threads talk about 'Melboring'. Melbourne may not have a surfeit of 'organised' entertainment for the under-30's', but (AFAIK) the curfew (9pm) applies only to older people - and it's voluntary.

If there are insufficient 'social activities' what is there to prevent you (or anybody else) from organising some?

If there are indeed insufficient social activities, you would probably find a very appreciative market.

I've lived here for a very short time (about 6 weeks.) I'm certainly not bored ... there aren't enough hours in the day and we've had to start a 'social calendar' to stop us from being double-booked!

viera is the nicer part of melbourne. if you enjoy the city thats great, but just about everything about it makes me cringe. the general population reminds me of a festering and diseased wound with maggots and the full nine.

Really? I thought Viera was not incorporated in the town of Melbourne? (The word 'city' has a meaning ... cities have cathedrals and bishops - in the first world. )

I don't live in Viera (I live in the boonies to the East of Viera) Low crime - and not a lot going on. There are roads (and if I wanted to go to Melbourne I could always drive down Wickham, or go down 95 and along Sarno.)

I live in a (fairly affluent) low-crime area.

I don't 'go clubbing' - been there, done that.

I sail, I swim, I fish, I walk (pretty boring around here - no mountains) and I ride a bike (as boring as walking, for the same reasons.)

There aren't enough hours in the day to allow me to do all the things I would like to do. I don't have time to be bored.
