I live on the Main Line.

I'm not Jewish, I was raised a Christian with strong family values and high morals.

I am a REPUBLICAN.

My house has 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms, on 1.5 acres - certainly not a "sprawling estate."

We do not own a shore home or vacation home, nor do we own a boat or any other sort of recreational vehicle.

We do not own a BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes, or any other high-class automobile; in fact, all of our cars are American.

I didnt get a car for my 16th birthday - I saved up money and bought one for myself once I turned 18.

I do not wear multiple, layered polo shirts and I certainly don't pop the collar of the one I do wear.

Wawa is the greatest convinience store franchise on planet Earth.

Yes, I have an iPod (which I got for free with a little HARD WORK and DILIGENCE from freeipods.com) because I enjoy listening to a lot of @#$@# music.. is there a problem with that?

I've volunteered at the Salvation Army on Thanksgiving, so I guess I do care about more than myself.

I was educated by one of the best public school systems in the country.

Judging by most of the spelling errors I've seen so far on this site, most of you Main Line haters would have difficulty recognizing the correlation between hard work, a quality education, and the privelege of enjoying the finer things in life such as driving a German automobile and living in such a beautiful and well-respected areas such as the Main Line.
While the Main Line may have its snobs who have had their good fortune handed down to them, it is one of the best examples of what a little more time spent working hard rather than hitting the pipe can do for you.

False conception that the Main Line is full of jews. Maybe there are a bunch of jews in Ardmore and Wynnewood, but the majority of the Main Line has and always will be WASP. White- Ango Saxon PROTESTANTS (i.e. Episcopalians). It's so obvious that people arn't really from here when they call everyone a jew considering the majority arn't. So what if everyone has a luxury car of some sort, my family has had Jaguars for years and will continue to do so, but that doesn't mean I'm a jew. Jews live out in Downington and West Chester (areas where people who can't afford to live on the Main Line live). The majority of the Main Line is also REPUBLICAN, not Democrat. The flashy annoying Democrats are out of towners who moved into the Philly area because of business and now act like they are from old money. People who hate on the Main Line and soooo jealous and it is VERY obvious by reading through some of these posts. Oh yea, and BTW- Gladwyne, the richest town on the Main Line, now ranks #3 in the nation, placing it above Beverly Hills, Greenich CT, and other various prestigious places.
I wear polo's, blast rap from my mom's SUV or my dad's Jag, go to a wealthy school, and come from a family that has lived on the Main Line for generations. Sucks for everyone who doesn't live here LOL have a nice day- losers.

The rich suburbs out side of Philly. Characterized by the R5 SEPTA line and Rt30. Became popular during the turn of the century as a summer retreat for rich "old money" philadelphians. Still home to some of the richest people in the country but increasingly over run with "new money". Lots of catholics in the area, especially in Berwyn or Paoli, because the catholics were brought out from the city as servants for the old money. Now everyone knows who you are if you were born here, and if you weren't they may not trust you.
Main Line also refers to a dying way of life. Main Liners (old money) would marry one another and used connections to keep their money and prestige. Now most old money names have no money left. But they still consider them selves above new money.
Also home to some of the finest public and private school in the country and numerous colleges.
Look at all the main liners here.

You just hate main liners because they happen to be rich. I live in a nice house have a nice car, but so what? I don't wear abercrombie, J Crew or polo shirts. I'm a jew and I do occasionally go to starbucks occasionally. I also go to WaWa and I'm lucky that my family is well off. My stepdad has a STI, and I like to ride in but u don't have to be jealous. I go to Lower Merion high school which is a public school! And guess what I'm DEMOCRAT! I know people that are JAPs, but there are plenty of normal people. You guys don't have to be jealous cuz I'm rich. Go earn some money and stop bitchin!
That rich person lives in the main line.

The term “Main Line” comes from the R5 line that runs through three counties from outside of Philadelphia, running parallel to Rt. 30. Many stereotypes about the ML are true, to a certain extent. It is a generally affluent and posh area mostly populated with Catholics, not WASP’s or Jewish families. There is a good amount of "old money”, but many people are able to afford such privileged living because of their jobs in Philadelphia or as entrepreneurs because of the popularity of the area. The ML also contains numerous very expensive High Schools, such as The Haverford School, Malvern Prep, and Agnes Irwin, whose tuition is over $20,000 per year. Teenagers do not commonly drive sports cars wearing collared shirts and board shorts. While the cost of living in the ML is high, the style of living is relatively normative, except for Radnor Township, the most expensive, very conservative, and least diverse area that would not suit any non Irish-Catholic family. Nowhere near every resident of the ML belongs to Country Club or owns a summer home in Avalon (think about it, that's way too many people). I am as "Main Line" as it geographically (I can hear the R5 train from my house), and I cannot attest to these stereotypes: I don’t belong to a Country Club or own a beach house or rent in Avalon; my family owns two Hondas and I wear sweatpants mostly. My neighborhood is religiously, politically, and racially diverse and most people could fit in perfectly.
I live in the Main Line. I take the R5 into work every day. I am married with three children who go to Malvern. I own two cars and I am an Irish Catholic from Bryn Mawr.

To watch a large amount of a geeky television show, episode after episode, for a long period of time. A season of Buffy in two days, for example.

Similar to marathoning movies or chain smoking, but more geeky.
"I just mainlined the first 3 seasons of Angel"

"I'm going to go home and mainline the LOTR movies."

"Wheres Ferg at?"
"Oh, hes at home, sitting in the dark, mainlining Simpsons episodes"
