James!: I really doubt that most rural farkers live on vast tracts of land like they claim. Most people live in tract housing out in the boonies and spend most of their day commuting.

hiker9999: Molavian: Ethertap: I live in south Georgia, I pay 500 bucks a month for a 1000 square-foot apartment. In return for my tiny rent, I get to live in a town with no bar, no nightlife, no restaurant variety, and no culture.When I got my job offer here I thought the pay was pretty lousy, 10% under national average for new hires in my field. Then I looked up cost of living in the area and realized why it was that low.The way I look at living in a place like New York, Chicago, Boston, or San Francisco (among others) is that despite the high cost of living, at least theres things to do, places to go, and interesting things to eat.If you can't get laid in a town with nothing to do, you're doing it wrong.Yes....but in towns like that, the question is...."laid...by *what*?!?"
Rev.K: James!: There's three kinds of pork in that motherfarker. DID YOU OBSERVE THOSE WORDS?THREE KINDS OF PORK!That's fantastic, but that cilantro has to go.Devil weed.
Carn: Didn't we just have this thread yesterday?
YouPeopleAreCrazy: Bill Frist: Yeah... New Yorkers are not subsidized. We pay far more in taxes, and actually subsidize the shiatty rural parts.The shiatty rural parts that actually feed you. And build your furniture. And all the other shinies that you desire.
CtrlAltDestroy: This has been fun and all, but with this, I'm out. Call it fleeing if you will, and I'm sure that someone will, but I've wasted enough time with this today. Off to finish work then go home and wrench on my motorcycle in prep for the nice weather.
dchurch0: I love Nebraska.
RatOmeter: you have pee hands: You do save by not having to have a car.Not enough to cover a $2200 studio apartment, but it helps some.I just did some rough calculations on my cost of having a car for the last 18 years:Price paid: $16000Miles driven: 179,000Fuel economy: ~24 MPGFuel used: 179,000/24 = 7500 gallons (rounded up)Fuel cost: $3/gallon (another estimate, price has changed a lot in 18 years) * 7500 = $22,500Insurance paid: $4000 (estimate average of ~$200/per year, rounded up, paid $130 last year)Oil changes: ~$30/year * 18 = $540Tires: estimate 1 set every 2 years at $400/set (high estimate) * 9 = $3600Maint & repairs: $2000 (high estimate, actually did all my own mechanic work)Total: $48640Annual cost: $2700Weekly cost: $52Daily cost: ~$7.40Probably riddled with errors, but there it is, for whatever it's worth.
James!: sigdiamond2000: Rev.K: that cilantro has to go.Looks like it's got some other elitist roughage in there as well.Enjoy your fancy sandwich, Mr. Moderator.I will.
