I live ten minutes away from New Brunswick where I can see dope music or go to a party any night I'm bored. I'm about an hour away from either Philly or New York with no traffic. My town has a ton of awesome cheap places to eat and a pretty decent music scene for a suburban town. I think I've got a pretty dope set up here. Don't bash what you don't know.

Have you ever been in a Walmart in Pennsyltukci? It's a scary scary place.

^I use to live in New Jersey. It's better than Ohio. And Ohio is probably in the top half of states.

The only time I've been to the midwest I drove from Chicago to Indianpolis. Chicago is obviously an awesome city and Indianpolis is pretty nice in it's own right. There was literally nothing in between those two cities though. The only city we passed through was Gary, Indiana which is literally the worst place I have ever been.

The generalisation of Africa is what gets me...Africa is actually pretty nice in some places. I live in South Africa and I hate to break the stereotypes...but we are living pretty nicely. Agreed there is drastic poverty throughout the continent, but there are some real upmarket places in here...I regularly see Ferraris and Lamborghinis on the road, there are some very wealthy people here who live in luxury. Its not all poverty and starving...

They don't even have a fire station. They just have two trucks in a parking lot.

That's the reason it's shitty though. The income gap between the guys at the bottom and the guys at the top are massive.

True, it is very similar to India in that sense and honestly if you don't go to/experience in some form the life of the poorer people here, you will be living in a bubble and have no concept of what it's really like.
