An airstrike from Greater Appalachia? Are they going to send the 48th Lawn Chair Balloon Guy Wing after us?

Repeat from Saturday.

Yeah.  You go right on referring to part of South Dakota as "Yankeedom."  That makes total farking sense.

In my nation (El Norte), repeats are against the law.

How exactly does Erie, PA have anything in common with Boston, MA?  It would be better to make the area from Boston to DC one nation.  They have more in common than what this map suggests...

Read the article again from this source. I still can't divine from it which of these cellular entities has the best coverage for me.

Greater Appalachia freedoms:

1) tear up the ground for every piece of available coal
2) hate the gays
3) fark your sisters

Repeats have always been perfectly cromulent, as long as you can work a tired Fark cliche in there.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: They forgot about Deseret, Deadwood, The Maze, etc.

we have all the coal so fark the rest of you

El Norte has the best coverage, but also the highest likelihood of having your hands chopped off.

Sort of a good news, bad need scenario.

I looked at the map for 10 seconds and disagree.  I see 8 distinct regional groups:
New England (Maine to Maryland, include Ohio)
The Southeast (east of the Mississippi and south of New England)
The Mid-North (North of Oklahoma)
The Mid-South (Missouri and Louisianna)
Texas (Texas and Oklahoma.  THAT'S for the musical you flat turd of a state)
The near West (Montanna straight down to mexico, include Nevada)
The Far West (Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska)
Hawaii (Hawaii)

""San Francisco isn't in the same country as Lakeside anymore than New Orleans is in the same country as New York or Miami is in the same country as Minneapolis."
"Is that so?" said Shadow, mildly.
"Indeed it is. They may share certain cultural signifiers-money, a federal government, entertainment-it's the same land, obviously-but the only things that give it the illusion of being one country are the greenback, The Tonight Show, and McDonald's." "

also from the same book:

"This is the only country in the world," said Wednesday, into the stillness, "that worries about what it is."
"The rest of them know what they are. No one ever needs to go searching for the heart of Norway. Or looks for the soul of Mozambique. They know what they are."
 
2013-11-11 04:35:57 PM
Oh, good. I'm from New France. Not really the Deep South. I'm glad they got that straight at least. It really is like a another world. When you move out into other parts of the country your first thoughts are "WTF is wrong with these people. Why are they so farking uptight?"

If you lived close to the shore of Lake Erie you would understand. Not very far to the south lies a totally and completely different world with their own customs and language. Whether it is NY, PA or Ohio it makes no difference.

// Not kidding..
// the "south" is farther north than one would think..
 
2013-11-11 04:36:49 PM
So Dallas is part of Greater Appalachia?

Exactly. It should be called Governmentia.

I have a hard time fitting in West Texas and the bulk of Oklahoma to "Greater Appalachia"  If anything, "El Norte" Needs to extend up through Texas and the Midlands should include Oklahoma
 
2013-11-11 04:39:51 PM
Similarly, with Ohio ...

Sooo..... Kansas (Tea Party Mecca) and Illinois (Home of the President and pretty anti 2nd Amendment) are in the same group in your world?

How can you keep Appalachian Americans on the farm after they have seen indoor plumbing?
 
2013-11-11 04:45:27 PM
Oh, that is all so Last Millennium  - so territorial.  In the internet age, you don't have to live nearby your government.  Gov services are all contracted out, anyway.  Pick a country; join up (if they'll have you); vote; pay taxes... If they go all rotten on you, join a different country -- no need to Move.

/makes is hard to draw maps, tho.

Your cash on hand will rapidly deplete, as your lifespan is artificially extended and you've broken the healthcare industry. Have fun with those hospital bills, gramps. Fortunately, your kind has created great investment opportunities in both the military-industrial complex, and resource discovery and procurement. Easy shiat, brah. I have so much time to enjoy my new wealth, for which I have expended so little relative effort. How about you?
