A pompous anti-semetic ivy-league University where you pay for what you believe is a great education but really all that you have learned is how to be a complete and total ass after 4-years undergraduate. Save your money and go to CUNY Honors and drive around in a Mercedes S500 instead.
That school is such a columbia! Good thing I have decided to not waste my money on an inferior education with people who think that just because they go to that school they are better than everyone else.
A smallish suburb located roughly halfway between Baltimore, Md and D.C. The median income, as well as the median age of residents (and cost of living) is slowly rising. Best known for its ridiculous literary street names. The example below features actual street names.
The girl from Columbia who lived on Red Keel was jealous of her friend, who lived on Mooseberger Court.
The Capital of the great state of South Carolina. Also the home of the University of South Carolina whose mascot is the GAMECOCK!
(Your School's Ladies love our COCKS!)
The best and sparkliest character from the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Columbia likes to dance the Time Warp and expose her breasts.
A planned community in central Maryland. The vision of James Rouse in the 1960's.
Not a town, not a city, but huge and threatening to take over surrounding areas like Scaggsville and Clarksville, Columbia is also notorious for many nursing homes and being "Suburban Nation".
"Dude, there's nothing to do in Columbia after 9. The only 24/7 place is the 7-11."
A planned city in Maryland of about 100,000 people between Baltimore and DC. Probably one of the most diverse places you can find in this country. You can find every type of person from the rich, to the middle class, to the poor, and a lot of different ethnicities.
Columbia is made up of 10 villages. Some of the apartments in the oldest villages (oakland mills, wilde lake, harpers choice, owen brown, long reach) have high crime due to relocation of public housing from mostly Baltimore but also DC,PG County, and NY. Lotta hispanics in some areas to. But this is seen in all of the Baltimore-Washington burbs, even the richest city in montgomery county (Potomac) has section 8 apartments yup. Oakland Mills is probably the worst part of columbia, feels like a clone of Baltimore City and there's nothing there to do. Due to the growing public housing over the past 20 years and increasing, and more gentrification in baltimore, a lot of people say Columbia will become the next Baltimore City but I doubt that, maybe more like a Yonkers like in NY with a higher crime rate and more money lol.
Columbia is in howard county, which is now ranked the third richest county in the nation. Columbia and Ellicott City together were ranked by money magazine as the #8 best place 2 live. Makes sense since the schools are good and it is right in between 2 cities with a lot of sh*t to do in those cities. But you take the good w/ the bad, you have to deal with a lot of fake people, like...
The first of America's space shuttle fleet (Enterprise was actually built first, but never flew in space.). First flight event occurred in 1981. She was destroyed upon reentry into earth's atmosphere in 2003 killing her crew of seven.
Columbia flew her maiden voyage in 1981.
Poetic name for the Americas
, mostly dating from the nineteenth century, a feminized version of Christopher Columbus' name. Also the name of a popular female personification of the United States
around that time, particularly before the construction and dedication of the Statue of Liberty
; the Columbia Pictures logo is an excellent example of this allegorical figure. Several cities, counties, neighborhoods and institutions in the U.S. have Columbia as or in their name — especially the capital, the District of Columbia. Canada
's westernmost province is likewise named British Columbia
Columbia is also how dumb people spell "Colombia," a friendly and colorful nation in South America
that is unfortunately beset by drug-related conflict.
