I have no idea how this thread could ever make you want to return to Philly...


This thread aside, why on Earth would you want to leave there and come here??

I think I'd actually rather be in Philly than Fort Lauderdale

Aaaand sometimes they're not...like when you respond to a charge of playing the PC police and the rationality/humor of suburban stereotypes (the larger argument to which I was referring) with an ad hominem attack in an attempt to marginalize my argument.

btw I didn't see you playing PC police when Beach was cracking about GA and Haverford students (and I'll leave alone the fact that you responded to a charge about a group of people by holding yourself out as a paragon of virtue for half of those folks... wonderful, wonderful argument right there)

But you're right... I don't know anything. Great last dig. Thanks for putting me back in my place... on the internet... in a forum... that doesn't matter... filled with people who are super serious... about everything... :wink:


To quote myself from earlier ... you argue a lot for someone who winks about Internet arguments.

not really


I have written very sparingly in my responses. That must mean I am really serious about this. And the 9400 other posts I have written here in the last 2 years. Yes, must be.

Bad economy, shitty public services, sprawling as fuck, among other things.

Hmm...

I would say greater Philadelphia has fared the recession comparatively well. Things aren't going swimmingly, but we're in a lot better shape than a lot of places.

Philly proper has shitty public services. Philly suburbs run the gamut.

Philly has a very strong inner suburban core. As for the outer suburbs, there is definitely some sprawl, but the hills help break things up a bit--not like Florida, which is flat as a pancake.

No, because it would be hilarious and probably lead to a more enjoyable time if you're anything like you are on the internet.

Oh okay, I thought it was because you talked so much trash on this online forum and, not knowing that I couldn't care less about what someone says on the Internet, you're scared I would hold it against you.

No, I generally don't give a shit what people think of me on the internet. You've said some pretty stupid shit about me and made some pretty rash generalizations which I would hold against you though.

At first I saw this thread hanging around, I thought no good could come of this. Then there was talk of a party and I thought we could all bury the hatchet and make up. Aaaaannnd then it went back. I had such high hopes for us all.

For this party to occur... EtOH is definitely required.

xoxo to all,

Agreed. Let's give tarp a fair chance. If he turns out to suck, we can always make a collective effort to abandon him while he's in the bathroom or something.

I'm good. One too many ad homeniums.There's other stuff I'd rather be doing than hanging out with some guy I clearly won't get along with. Thanks for the gesture though, I guess.
