good luck with your thread though
Can we discuss why you were gonna use the screen name "French Fries with mayo" instead?
I mean that's just a little screwy, champ.
Horrible link, it doesn't even list the 50 cities.
Raleigh? obviously they interviewed retards.
DC is in the top 10, sweet lawdy.
I like french fries with mayo, that's all.
Hey, are you really from the Netherlands or are you one of those dudes that's like, from Queens but says they're from another country to appear mysterious on this message board?
Portland, OR - #33
I'm calling tough time. First of all, Portland is a large town and too small to be considered a city. Mega high unemployment and the weather here is HORRIBLE! Canned typical description in article tells me it was totally bogus. The go-to "I don't know how to describe Portland politely" phrase is "outdoorsman's paradise". That plus the chicks are all, and I mean ALL, fat. O.k. Ok, there is really good coffee and beer here but other than that it's dead. Don't move here without a job in place.
Yes, I am really from the Netherlands. I went on exchange to Florida last year and had a rental car that had Sirius/XM. That's how I've come to know the Howard Stern Show.
You're from there?
Oregon is a state I really want to check out because the nature is supposed to be amazing over there.
IDK why Pittsburgh made the list. It said the unemployment rate is low, but that's only because people are LEAVING. A businessman who comes to my shop recently called it a "dying city".
I've had one friend who visited there and maintains that it's awesome. Everyone else I know who's gone there said it sucks, as far as things to do and nightlife.
Besides that there's NOTHING around it. I had friends who lived in a Pittsburgh "suburb" and it was literally like I was in southern Appalachia... SO backwoods; SO backward and creepy. And not another city or fucking thing to do for like, hours. The next closest city is probably Harrisburg, and that place sucks too.
...come to think of it maybe they made a list of the worst cities and just called them the best to encourage people to go there to help em out.
Oh, wait- I didn't see Detroit.
Seems like a pretty legit list.
Denver's on it, but not number 1, so it is not entirely accurate
I haven't seen this version of Deverrant in about a year.
Where's that "words" smilie?
No, no no. I am not from here but I live here and have a business here for about 5 years now. Best thing to do is to visit here when it really sucks like Jan-march that way the rest of the year gets better from there. Also, already have a job or a trust fund because you ain't going to find any work here unless you're some shoe design protege that Nike will snatch up or you just looooove serving coffee to people and being so broke you're hungry most of the week. 40% of those employed in Portland are employed by something related to grocery stores (not restaurants or bars, but grocery stores). No joke. It's like a ghost town during the summer because most people here have kids I guess and they're not driving them to school? I dunno, it's weird. If I had a choice (long story and I don't) I'd leave in a heartbeat.
Portland is far far less hip than anything you might be hearing about it in other cities.
Oakland at number 4? Reno at 8?
I hate when websites run those lists and make you click through their slides. Just write out the list, you lazy website fucks.
I dunno but I found this one... :fuck:
Wow, that sounds horrible.
Man. That sounds pretty depressing.
