Hey subby - Southern Illinois is south of I-70.

Location of Niabi Zoo. Subby must have never left Chicago and considers all places in Illinois that aren't Chicago "Southern Illinois."

I'm sure glad they didn't take more than one picture of the little beast.

The youngster's quite tall for his age.

I've heard Chicagoans refer to places between Chicago and Wisconsin as "Southern Illinois". "Southern Illinois" is anything not Chicagoland to Chicagoans.

I'd have said Southern Illinois was south of I-64, but peeps from Centralia and Effingham would have kittens.

You take that back!

My ZIP code has been referred to as East St. Louis, although it clearly isn't. That really sogs my cereal.

Effingham has that tacky big-ass cross next to I-70. That seems like Southern Illinois to me.

That and I live in St. Louis and we consider what's across the river to be Southern Illinois.

I've heard that Chicagoans think everything outside of Chicago is farm land...which might not be that far from the truth. There's plenty of farms around my neighborhood.

Mmm....fresh corn stands will be up soon.

S of 70= Southern ILL
N of 74= northern ILL
in between central would be how I'd call it.

But then again I'm just someone that had to pass through there a lot for business, I don't claim to be an expert on the area, its not like I'm from there.

I'd agree that's a fair assessment though. Plus I wanted to highlight that tacky cross that looks like it was made out of aluminum siding.

"Southern Illinois", with a capital S, is not that.

Lake County is Southern Illinois and not part of Chicago?

I'd believe that, Chicagoans are a very insulated bunch.

/Love the city though

If you was to not count Chicagoland, St Louis suburbs, and Quad Cities, the rest of IL has a population density about like the Dakotas.

Anyone else click on the picture? The way it's credited, it looks like they named the giraffe "Larry Fisher."

And this is our newest member, the exotic Kenyan giraffe... Larry.

Yep, subby is either trolling or Chicagolandian. "Anything south of 80", and this zoo is just south of 80.

And as for low population density outside major city areas? What state not on the East Coast DOESN'T fit that?

IL outside of the major cities and their burbs is like the least populated areas I've seen east of the Mississippi if not east of the Rockies, and I've been in about all of the rural areas of about all the states.

55 to Chicago is about the most boring drive I've ever been on.

Try 57

Have you driven on 80 through Nebraska? I would gladly take 55 to Chicago over that any day.

MoronLessOff: 55 to Chicago is about the most boring drive I've ever been on.


Try 57 to Chicago. When we moved to Georgia, we'd drive up there a few times a year, and we'd take 75 to 24 to 57, and drive up nearly the entire length of the state. Illinois is flatter than piss on a plate, and looks the same day or night. It only stops looking like an endless vista of corn when you get just south of Chicago.

I see that others have straightened out subby on the location of southern Illinois.

As for the giraffes at Niabi Zoo...my daughter worked as a zookeeper there for a number of years and I have met the adult giraffes. They are all very cool animals and will allow you to pet them on the nose and feed them leaves from some special tree they have there at the zoo. Of course I had to stand on a platform to do so.

If you ever find yourself in the Quad Cities, stop into Niabi Zoo. It is a very interesting place.
