Sub-urbia. The key word here is SUB. It is SUB par to living in the actual city. It is a dreary existance of living right beside a house exactly like yours, for cheap. Sure, living in an apartment isn't all that better, but hey, at least Downtown isn't a boring mindless existance on a day by day basis.

An evil massive sprawl created after the second world war to compensate veterans that many people found attractive until they realized it was too late, but after buying too many appliances and object could no longer afford to return to the city.

A lame excuse for a city.

A reason people should move to the country.
Missisaugua, a MASSIVE Suburbian region directly beside Toronto, with the lamest "Downtown" the worst "Transit" and only a single nice green place. Other then that it's a paved paradise with cookie-cutter houses. Worse than the city.

Contrast: City suburbia

Not like the city because it's quiet, not like suburbia because you don't feel like you're going to explode due to boredom and utter lack of greenery (lawns not withstanding)

A generally quiet region of the world many people choose to live in due to it's tranquility and closeness with nature. Sometimes refered to as and are actually similar to "the boons" and "the bush" or "the sticks".

A.K.A: Middle of Nowhere.

Canadian prairies do not count, unless you already pre-exist there, at which point you ENJOY the miles and miles of absolute nothing. (see SaskatchewanManitobaAlberta)

A good place to get away from it all. (exception: Saskatchewan)
Good examples include the cottage COUNTRY, north of Toronto or Algonquin park (for camping), also includes areas WAY north of Montreal and BC mountain ranges. Areas between Kingston and Toronto are country, werein people live quiet solitary lives with schools in of only 900 people, from K to gr.12.

What we learn from Suburbs, Country and City is that there IS NO PERFECT PLACE TO LIVE.

Sketching Excellence. Begun as I sketched people in the subways of Toronto. On my way to a play, someone told me the drawing of someone i recently met was Sketchellent. Thus a new word was born.
Joe:"k, what do you think of this piece"
Bob:"hey man, that page is sketchellent!"

Wrong. This term is most likely referring to Yaweh, of Yehoweh, or.. JEHOVAH.
It is derived from 4 letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Because the hebrews didn't use vowels, the literal english equivalent is YHWH. This is referred to as the Tetragrammaton. The Jews never preserved the correct pronunciation, thus many attempts at filling in the vowels occured, such as in here.

Jesus' name however is similar. It is the Latin-greco version of Joshua, which does contain the name "Yaweh" in it, but means "Yaweh" is Salvation.

YWHW: "THE LORD" in most versions of the Bible (See Exodus 3: I AM: The being that can exist without any other required being)
"praise ye the LORD"
