    I temporarily live in middle america and fucking hate it. Used to live in NYC, Paris and LA. I cannot complain because these rubes think they I am dissing their city. Well I am. They are heathens with bad taste. Planning a move to civilization aka NYC in 1 year, cannot believe I am stuck here until then.

    Hey I had to move from Midtown Manhattan to less-than-suburban Georgia for a year. I feel your pain, and CAN'T WAIT to get back to my NYC life. For now though I just try to make the best out of the biggest city here, Atlanta, and make it feel more like my NYC home....maybe you can find the largest metropolis nearby, and find something about it to look forward to until you return to NYC

    I have a college degree... but I don't think I'm better than "uncivilized" or "uncultured" people because they don't share my beliefs. Enjoy your sweaters, coffee shops, piss-poor hygiene, and thick-rimmed glasses. I'll actually have a good time because I don't base my life and beliefs on pretentious cultural constructs.

    Not all college degrees are created equal you cretin. Most college degrees are a waste of time and useless. You probably went to some third tier toilet school and think you are smart because you went to college. You obviously have a pathetic career that pays you peanuts, if you're even employed. You look and sound poor. You also need to get a life. Being so politically charged is very déclassé. Did you really call me a lefty? I bet everything and everyone in your life is categorized "lefty" and "right". That's very scary. Do you have any friends or a hobby? You are very strange and are already creeping me out from the very few posts you've sent my way. Go away.

    It's definitely tough to transition from living in an urban area to basically the middle of nowhere if you've grown accustomed to all the stimulation. I grew up in the Boston area and moved to the boonies for college--big mistake. It's overall pretty boringg. It's also especially terrible if you're gay/want to be able to date whatsoever, but heyy. Maybe you can turn your college degree into a way to get back there? lmao

    W/out change often there is no growth. Learn frm the experience, embrace your surrounding as it will enrich u socially. If it's not permanent what's all the fuss about...

    I'm glad I can visit the center of the world but always have the chance to leave afterwards.

    Oh dear... we have ourselves some Ivy-League fool that thinks he is better than us commoners without the Ivy League paper that says we done grad-jee-ated from an eeee-LITE school. 

    Well, bless your heart, may your elite degree help you find a job.  Preferably one nowhere near NYC, as we have a surplus of douchebags like you as it is. 

    Oh and creepy?

    Creepy is You

    FF at least had the balls to put his photo to his trolling.

    I think Boston was first to claim to be "the hub of the Universe" back in the Puritan days (and still has the nickname among locals of "the Hub".)

    I can see that the rural/urban divide is alive and well. Frankly I don't have much patience for elitism but I also don't have much patience for half-baked, right wing stereotypes of urbanites and leftists.

    In the late 1960s I used to commute toward NYC every morning, though usually not crossing the Hudson from New Jersey, my business on the other side of the river. And as I drove east on US Rt 3 (for those who know it), I came down from the Watchung Mountains out of Montclair, and caught my first morning glimpse of the New York City skyline, some 20 miles away.

    To me it was the Emerald City, the center of the world, as you say. I thrilled daily to see that famous outline of skyscrapers against the morning sun, the WTC Twin Towers to the south growing taller every day. The United States truly was the world's greatest superpower in those days, certainly economically, and this was one of our iconic centers, along with the capitol of Washington, both almost too wonderful to behold.

    The power behind NYC is mostly gone now, though most Americans fail to realize it. Gone to inadequately restrained corporate greed, and ill-advised military adventurism. Not to mention the destructive rise of Christian fundamentalism, that places arbitrary religious theology ahead of good old American common sense, practicality and fairness, the true source of our wealth & power. A Biblical straightjacket that constrains our creative national genius to the illogical words of a single book of questionable origin.

    And yet I lived in Middle America for many years. Saw the weaknesses & drawbacks you see, but also many strengths. I like people as much as spectacular skylines and Broadway shows, and I can introduce you to civilized people in every corner of this country of ours. Perhaps you weren't looking hard enough to see past stereotypes, and into the corners to know the other America.

    I kinda feel you. I lived in NYC for 12 years. I have lived in LA for 14 years now. I am a large metropolitan area person. I dont think I could make it in a small area. Although sometimes I see it and wonder. There is something to be said about that lifestyle. eh. Maybe I am just getting older.

    I'm sure I'll always be a city guy, but I'm learning to appreciate the charm of country and small-town living. Suburbia is a different story.
