A person, often an adult in their 40s or 50s, who resides in any suburb of a major city and holds the firm belief everything they and their family need is in their suburb and others surrounding it and rarely, if ever, venture into the core city, either out of fear of being a victim of a crime (even if they live near a city with low crime rates) or out of contempt for the cities mostly liberal/open-minded view points that clash with their staunch conservative ideas.

Militant suburbanites are not very common in communities within 15 miles of the core city and make up less than half a metro area's population, but they are not common to spot, as they feel the need to conform to whatever their neighbors and/or coworkers are doing. Militant Suburbanites that do venture into the city usually tend to stick to the most crowded areas of the city and will avoid any form of public transportation.
There are three levels of Militant Suburbanite:

Level 1-most willing to venture into a core city, though only do so for certain occasions, usually being sporting events, some concerts and conventions/trade shows/conferences, travel (driving through in a car, heading to the airport, etc.) and work, if their job is in the city. All other entertainment and shopping they feel can be done in the suburbs.

Level 2-will venture into the core city from time to time, but usually only for work and travel

Level 3-rarest of all. Is absolutely not willing to venture into the core city at all. They will go out of their way to not find a job there and will even refuse to drive through there on the highway.

One of the greatest animated sitcoms ever, that sadly only lived to see two seasons. Created by Al Jean and Mike Reiss, two of the head writers of The Simpsons, the series starred Jon Lovitz as Jay Sherman, a fat film critic with very high standards that causes him to give bad reviews to practically every movie he reviews. The series was also known for it's jokes about pop culture, politics, and practically everything else about life back in the mid-90s

The first season aired on ABC in 1994, was cancelled after the end of the season, but picked up by FOX for season 2 in 1995, which saw a rise in viewership, but ultimately ended in cancellation as well (plans for a third season on UPN fell through, though a series of internet shorts were made in 2000).
The Critic was-and still is-a fantastic series-I hope whoever decided to cancel it got fired.

Small town in rural Minnesota around 45 minutes southwest of Minneapolis. Came to light in the early eighties when several of the town's adults were swept up in a case of satanic child sexual abuse, as well as a song by Noise Rockers Big Black about the above mentioned incidents.
Jordan, Minnesota has a dark history.

Also known as Fall, the season that marks the transition from Summer to Winter, beginning on September 21 and ending on December 21. While often regarded positively for the fall foliage colors, Autumn is despised by:

1. Many people living in Northern areas due to the fact Autumn means cold weather is on the way

2. Most kids in any type of school (elementary, high, college, etc.) with a normal calendar due to the fact Autumn is the start of the school year and the furthest point away from the return of Summer/End of the year

Major Holidays in Autumn include Labor Day, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.
While Jill looks forward to Autumn because of the bright colors, Henry despises every part of the season except Halloween.

A small town in the middle of nowhere Utah about 4-5 hours away from Salt Lake City. Made the news in May 2000 when the town passed a law requiring all residents to keep and maintain a gun.
I wouldn't want to live in Virgin, Utah. The right to keep and bear arms should be a choice, not a requirement.

Town/mini-city in Illinois, connected to the northwest side of Chicago. Noted for it's close proximity to O'hare Airport as well as featuring the Allstate Arena (where minor league teams such as the Chicago Wolves American Hockey League team play, as well as hold concerts), Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, and the Rosemont Theater (also a good concert venue).
My house is being fumigated so I'll have to spend the next few days in a hotel in Rosemont.

From the game Portal 2. A lemon with the power to explode and start a fire. Yelled by Cave Johnson via an old recording while Chell and Glados navigate through the abandoned part of Apeture Science laboratories.
"I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustable lemon that burns your house down!"-Cave Johnson
