why did the chicken(s) cross the road?

so, yeah... i met mattshizzle IRL yesterday.  he showed me his new pimp ring and everything.  on the turn into his town there were three chickens crossing the road... obviously trying to get the hell out of there.   i don't blame them.

matt's neighborhood redefines small town america, let me tell you.  although, an ice cream truck comes by regularly.  that's pretty much it for excitement.

Oh, and you TOTALLY look like William Murderface in that picture. Learn to play bass guitar and I guarantee you that Dethklok (which is actually a real band) would take you on tour.

Technically a town of that size is considered a village.

I can see that with a mix of Jack Black in there too.

Don't knock your town too hard - I lived in a "town" of 400 for a good portion of my life. Actually, it was more of a collection of houses that thought itself bigger than it really was.

The nearest city is Reading

The nearest city is Reading (pop about 75,000) - about 14 miles away. Not a place to go if you enjoy not getting shot and have no desire to buy illegal drugs though.

Bah. All you big-city folk bragging about how big your city is. Feh.

When I was a kid, I grew up in a logging camp of 500 people. I graduated with 3 other people. The nearest town was an hour away by road, and it had a population of about 3,000. There was another town connected by road, but that was all -- we were on an island. The nearest city was 45 minutes away -- by plane.  Of course, it did have almost 15,000 people, so it was a metropolis. And, it had a movie theater, at which I watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Y'all are a bunch of city slickers. Don't pretend you're not.

Your damn right I am

I left that town back in '86 (it was closing since the mining operation was closing), and I haven't really lived in a small town since then, been to Buenos Aires, Mendoza (both in Argentia), New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Calgary, Ottawa, London (UK) Belfast, Madrid and now living in Brampton (just 10 minutes outside of Toronto) Small town life was fine as a kid but as an adult I don't think I could handle it now, espeically with my personality. Although I will say this, it wasn't over religious there at all, yeah christmas and easter was a big thing, but it was more of a secular than religious in that town.

Small towns offer unique opportunities .... public office, raising chickens/goats/rabbits, fish farm, frog legs, pastry / pizza /spaghetti etc truck ..... umm just saying.

Small Towns

 What was it that  John Melloncamp said ,"I was born in a small  town and I can breathe,etc...,etc... Although I do live in Philly now,I was born in a small town in NJ,and I wish I was still there a lot of times,I guess because it was so clean there,compared to Philly.

Signature ? How ?

Since our thread is now

Since our thread is now about who grew up in biggest city, Hong Kong has 7,000,000 people (and is remarkably geographically small). I'll show you:

I think I can find my house in that picture.

"Physical reality” isn’t some arbitrary demarcation. It is defined in terms of what we can systematically investigate, directly or not, by means of our senses. It is preposterous to assert that the process of systematic scientific reasoning arbitrarily excludes “non-physical explanations” because the very notion of “non-physical explanation” is contradictory.
