Recommended in this case: Connecticuter
Alternatives: Nutmegger, Connecticotian, Connecticutensian, Connecticutian.

Nutmegger may be used as a pejorative.

Nutmegger, please.

Well, that makes sense. The 1% (management) tell the 99% (the linemen) what and where to fix, so the linemen's fellow 99% throw shiat at them while they do what they are told to do - thereby delaying all efforts which ultimately delays the 99% areas from getting fixed too. What a bunch of dumb asses. That's like donkey punching her before you stick it in.

NkThrasher: Nutmegger? Oh, that's a keeper.

CT = Nutmeg state. However:

"There is not, however, any nickname that has been officially adopted by the State for its residents."

so you can continue to call them, "those assholes".

KierzanDax: "...a fifth straight day after so-called superstorm Sandy hit the East Coast."

Wait, is Fox News trying to deny it was a superstorm, deny it was called Sandy or deny it hit the East Coast?


Well, derp! Of course this was just a little wind. Typical 47% whiners who can't handle a little bit of inconvenience. Gimme, gimme,'s all these people know. First thing we need to do is get rid of this Obama-FEMA. Here's an example of the welfare whores who make up the 47%. Can you believe that the people living in this house in Union Beach, NJ already have their hands out! The nerve of these cretins!

ArcadianRefugee: fluffy2097: Fissile: In every civilized country, utility cables are buried under ground. My relatives in Europe can't believe that the US has such a primitive electric/phone system.

Think about how large the USA is compared to any country in Europe.

You'd think that Texans would be more serious about the quality of their electric service...........considering all those electric chairs they are running.

I'm from Connecticut. We just call each other "stuck up" or "assholes."

This is Bridgeport. A super Ghetto wedged in between some of the wealthiest towns in the nation. It's a sad place to be, and despite trying hard to change their image, shiat like this continues to happen and make the news.

hasty ambush: US reliance on overground electricity cables

"The main reason why power lines in America are not buried is cost.

Ask Manhattan how well their buried power lines worked out for them. Most of the large outages were due to flooding, not wind.

cgraves67: If I was the power company workers and they started throwing eggs at me, I'd leave. If they want their power restored, they can be respectful. They don't have to be happy, they can complain loudly, but the line workers putting in long shifts are not the guys to throw eggs at.

No kidding. In what universe would assaulting utility workers make them work faster? And in what universe do those workers decide where they're going to be assigned?

Give every single egg thrower 100 hours of community service cleaning up the mess from the storm. Assign them to the poorest neighborhoods so they'll feel better about doing that work.

PawisBetlog: I swear, between this and the story about both parties lawyering up, and being shoulder to shoulder with tea party activists and other people with extreme views, I start to wonder if we are headed toward an honest to goodness civil war. Not a military conflict mind you, something much more drawn out and damaging.

Things just seem to be drifting further and further apart, at the same time our core problems are getting worse and worse. problems that will require consensus and shared sacrifice to truly solve.

Hopefully a month or two after the election dies down I'll be able to ignore it for a few years, but if this election is contested for any length of time, watch out. It seems like it could get very very ugly.

\hope I'm being glass half empty guy.

I'm sure it will all go over easy if they just enjoy the sunny side after the storm, and stop scortching each other.
