A state with high taxes and horrible living spaces. A state full of assholes and people who think they own the world. The city (I have been there) is full of douchebags who get offended if you even ask them for directions. Don't bother asking if there are 2 of them, because they will get in an argument with each other over which way is faster. As if it fucking matters, the entire city is so fucking packed with stuck up uptight pricks that if you even slightly touch someone they will grab your shoulder and accuse you of stealing their wallet. NYers shop at Macys and will ALWAYS complain about something that is not from NY. When they take a vacation to the south they never enjoy it because all they do is bitch about how 'hot it is' down here or how bad the drivers are or 'how they cant get a real 'fockin peeetza dawg'. Basically, yankees are assholes and the Canadians up north are much nicer. Yankees are the reason that countries like Australia, Canada, Britain and 99% of every other country in the world hate us and think we're stupid people.
They have no idea of the concept of being nice and if you are nice to them they will automatically assume you're trying to rob them or something. They are uptight and you can NEVER have fun with a yankee. They have shitty weed up there the only good weed is from the south (dont even mention NYC diesel) and they have no concept of what a tree is. They think walking through central park is nature, and will talk about how its so nice when they take their little family strolls, but then when they go down south to the apallachians all they do is whine and bitch about the bugs or that there is nobody there and theres a bunch of hicks.
Agh basically NY is full of stupid asswipes who only care about money. No wonder the terrorist picked NYC to hit, its full of the people WE ALL hate!
New York is such a shithole, no wonder Osama chose to bomb it instead of a place like the south where nobody is involved in politics and nobody pisses anybody else off because we're actually NICE.
In reference to the city, let's just say that you know you're from there if any of the following apply to you:
You say "the city" and expect everyone to know that this means Manhattan.
You have never been to the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building.
You can get into a four-hour argument about how to get from Columbus Circle to Battery Park at 3:30 on the Friday before a long weekend, but can�t find Wisconsin on a map.
Hookers and the homeless are invisible.
The subway makes sense.
You believe that being able to swear at people in their own language makes you multi-lingual.
You've considered stabbing someone just for saying "The Big Apple".
The most frequently used part of your car is the horn.
You call an 8' x 10' plot of patchy grass a yard.
You consider Westchester "upstate".
You think Central Park is "nature."
You see nothing odd about the speed of an auctioneer's speaking.
You're paying $1,200 for a studio the size of a walk-in closet and you think it's a "steal."
You've been to New Jersey twice and got hopelessly lost both times.
You pay more each month to park your car than most people in the U.S. pay in rent.
You haven't seen more than twelve stars in the night sky since you went away to camp as a kid.
You go to dinner at 9 and head out to the clubs when most Americans are heading to bed.
Your closet is filled with black clothes.
You haven't heard the sound of true absolute silence since the 80s, and when you did, it terrified you.
You pay $5 without blinking for a beer that cost the bar 28 cents.
Power that comes form diversity.... Pride that comes from making it to the top....
Nothing like the Big Apple.
The greatest Fucking city in the world.
New York kicks ass!!!!
Where my heart will always be no matter where I go.
