The media always portrays New Jersey as such that is far away from the truth. Does anyone have any questions or comments to make about NJ or New Jerseyans? Also, what are some things you have heard about NJ? Like our accents, culture, attractions, politics, and other things.

Is it true the state motto is, "The armpit of America"?

I will not be low enough to make fun of West Virginia. New Jerseyans have great pride and class. Or are you actually from Florida?

Is it true you swim to school through rivers of toxic waste?

Do you guys still plant medical waste on Long Island beaches to make your seem more attractive by comparison?

(Note: I am from Long Island originally.)
NJ has a big chemical industry. However toxic waste sites have been cleaned up or are being cleaned up (these arent only common to NJ). I have never come into contact with anything toxic or condemned. I love Long Island too. We go out there all the time.

Don't tell me the LI-NJ rivalry is dying?  They used to compete heavily for summer tourism $$$.
I think NJ won, no one I know goes out to Long Island except for me to go to the beach. It's way less crowded. Where in Long Island you from?

Better as in more yuppie-friendly or better as in less quality in more space? Tongue

Better as in lacking Trenton. Tongue

Hahaha. NJ is very valuable in being in the US. We have the highest incomes, all kind of geography, a diverse culture, tons of things to do, and a large economy.

Didnt want to say it but I've been to the beach in the Hamptons way more then in NJ! It's awesome if you have a permit to park the car near an inlet which only town residents have. And theres not many people out there.

1. Connecticut is a whinier, more boring version of New Jersey.
2. In what way?
3. The mob is of such high quality.
4. Drugs.
5. Umm...
Yea! Exactly. Trentons a pretty sucky capitol I must admit (unless youre referring to NJ politicians by saying Trenton), but you guys only have Seattle. Our mob is of high quality too. HAHA

(All of this New Jersey-flogging is in good fun.  I'm sure it's a very nice state, and I would definiely not mind a place like Bergen County. Tongue)

We only have Seattle?  We have a metropolitan area that stretches from north of Seattle down to south of Tacoma.  Several million people, and none of the crapholes New Jersey has.

Gay people are nice.

Of course it's all in jest, no one could seriously doubt the perfection that is New Jersey. Wink  And Bergen County is far from the best in the state.  I reccomend Morris.  Our entire state is a metropolitan area.  Our crapholes give us character.  Nowhere on earth will you find something as indescribable as Camden.  We like to consider our politicians...a variety.
I stay away from Camden, haha. That's too bad. Bergen County is mixed. Some of the most affluent towns are there including Saddle River and Alpine. Saddle River is where Nixon retired to. I want to move to Bergen, its way better then Sussex and much more convenient.

We only have Seattle?  We have a metropolitan area that stretches from north of Seattle down to south of Tacoma.  Several million people, and none of the crapholes New Jersey has.

Also, our politicians are 100% heterosexual.  Well, excluding Dino Rossi.  But still.

Look what I found! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Upthegrove
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Murray There are two more too but I cant get a link. It says it in the Ed Murray link.

Look who's talking.  Seeing a Pennsylvania driver on the road is never a good sign, unless you like driving 10mph under the speed limit in the fast lane.  We're just a little over-aggressive, but that is only to deal with the obnoxious New York drivers.

Actually, we know how to drive. Its just everyone else who cant. You have to be a good driver to drive in NJ. It's tough.

Thats what I was gonna ask you. But I didnt want to get into any debate if you disliked gays.

I think it's clear from this conversation that you're the only one who has said something homophobic.
