SilentStrider: aww crap, i think i know where that is.
yarnothuntin: Since Black History month is just around the corner, I would like to point out that the first traffic light was invented by a black man named Martin Luther Washington Carver. He made it out of peanuts in his lab called the Tuskegee Experiment. He later married his childhood sweetheart Rosa Tubman. They're son Frederick Douglas, grew up and became the first African American baseball player.
JackieRabbit: The sad tag hangs its head. I guess some people won't be happy until everywhere in America is suburbia, with a Starbucks and a Wally World on every corner and endless acres of shiatty tract houses stretching to every horizon. Of course, this will improve the lot of all those ignorant country folk, who we all know fark their sisters, eat possum and raccoons, play banjos and butt-fark unsuspecting city slickers passing through.
oldsbone: Every so often, her grandfather would forget it was there and run through the light.
ShadowPenguin: Don't worry lady, we'll still know we're in Perry County when we see Cleetus coming out the CVS walking his goat with a box of condoms in his hand.
GAT_00: Jebus those people sound boring.
EvilEgg: As I always say about my home town, It's a great place to live, but I wouldn't want to visit there.
yarnothuntin: ...became the first African American baseball player.
Ashtrey: It's nice to see yankees getting the 'kin-lovin' jokes for a change.EvilEgg: As I always say about my home town, It's a great place to live, but I wouldn't want to visit there.My dad once described our hometown as "A great place to be from, but a shiatty place to live."
plywoodjungle: I live waaaaay to close to this place. Trust me, "Deliverance" was just "Perry County Light".
Dadof3: Perry County resident, kick, replies, etc.Been living here for 20+years, grew up in the NJ/NY metro area (Woodbridge Township, NJ) At first, I thought I made a big mistake moving here. Many fat, toothless checkered-wool wearing rednecks. But my kids go to a school where there's no graffiti on the walls, even in the restrooms. No fights, all the kids are surprisingly polite. Everyone has multiple weapons at home, but no problems in the school with kids and guns.I know most of the vehicles that drive down our rural road. Don't worry about getting mugged walking at night, you *do* have to worry about skunks, deer, bears, raccoons, etc. I can wake up and take a piss off the porch and I don't have any neighbors that can see me. Heat with wood I cut on the property. My kids play in the stream on my property. They've had pet turtles, frogs, toads, salamanders, snakes, etc.I'm only about 30 miles from the capitol, so we can drive in to see a play or concert, shop at just about any store, eat at a fancy restaurant, work a high-tech job, etc. I then drive home and we can have an outdoor fire in the fire pit and roast marshmallows, collect plants and flowers, shoot all kinds of weapons. We've had goats, turkeys, chickens (all very tasty). Flower gardens and vegetable gardens every year.Now, when I go visit NJ or NY, I can't wait to leave. Too much traffic and noise, rude people, smelly air (although I find it funny that NJ folks don't mind the smell of the Turnpike around Newark, but have a problem with cow/horse/chicken shiat)/keeps up the Perry County redneck facade so no one else moves here. :^)
