Man from somewhere with class: WTF is sweet tea?
Lots to do. Best waves on the right coast. Best music scene south of NY, east of Omaha and north of Gainesville. Fun cities, relaxing countryside. Great schools. Tons of laid back people who are open minded and fun to be around.
Bad State: Ignorant racists. No public transportation. Hog shit filled rivers. Too many far right churches. Terrible snowboarding. Redneck ass basketball fans who didn't attend their school of choice (that goes for us Dukies too).
The so-called mountains are hours away from all the cities and are have no views as they are not really mountains and covered with trees. More like foothills.
The beaches are hours away from all the cities and hot as hell in the summer. The typical Carolina beach vacation is to rent a house miles from any restaurants and try not to get too burnt. There are no waves to speak of.
The Golf courses are World Class. And very numerous. The only thing that outnumber the golf courses are the churches. About a par-5 between churches.
The state is bordered to the south by South Carolina, a place so shockingly devoid of culture and populated by religious bigots that it makes one wonder what happens at the otherwise invisible state line.
The so-called cities are really overgrown suburbs. All linked together along the Interstate by strip-malls.
The state university system is very good. It is assumed that all residents are interested in college basketball and that you follow one of the local teams. You will be expected to be able to discuss basketball as easily as the weather.
The state-pastime is to go to the local Mall. Mall's in North Carolina fill up like it's Christmas every weekend.
If North Carolina were West of the Rockies it would be even more boring than Oregon.
You: Why ?
Me: Everything here is about half-way. I know what I want now.
2. The punchline to every basketball joke ever invented.
3. Remembered for eight and twenty.
4. The favorite team of phules name Mike.
2. Did you hear? North Carolina won the NCAA championship this year! Wait, what do you mean they didn't?
