I used to live in Detroit, right now I live in San Marcos, Nicaragua. You think city walking is bad, try walking town to town with no paved roads and no street names. Laughing

I always had a car in the city and I always found parking. I never paid for parking either. Park at Greektown Casino off of I-75, take the people mover ($0.50 each way) and get dropped off near anywhere you are going. If you are going someplace further out of the city, you should find parking pretty easily.

Royal Oak parking is the worst for me. You couldn't pay me to live there with those meters. But some people love it.

I'm a city kid. Not a big city kid, but a city kid. I dont mind visiting big cities like NYC, Chicago and others but not sure I could live there. My city is pretty good sized but you can get around rather easily. I cant handle small towns. I am working in one now and they have a bar/resturant, a gas station, and a church. I would get so bored.
Same. Loved Chicago when I visited there, but if I wouldn't want to live downtown there unless I was like in a highrise apartment (so always avoiding the bad parts of the city). I prefer areas that are on the larger side, but aren't huge cities.

I love going downtown to Detroit though. It's weird, I almost don't even notice the bad parts because I'm so used to it Laughing

Do you guys live in Detroit? Is your city a big city?

My family went up to Portland to go to the zoo and other sites. I have no idea why anyone would want to live in a big city. We had to park 3 blocks from an Ice cream shop to be able to eat there. No parking. Plus 11,000 different highways/exits/etc... Such a joke.

You're either an idiot, brave or patient if you wanna live like that. Such a joke.

My sister swears it's the coolest thing in the world.

She lives in a house built in the 1800's near down town Portland. There is hardly room to walk thru the house as they are built on top of each other and you have to take off ramps to get there. What a nightmare.


Something about this post is a joke alright.

Actually the joke is people who are unable to accept other people have different views and desires without suggesting they're idiots.

I've lived in a farm, in big cities, medium cities, coastal towns, northern communities and there pluses and minuses to all lifestyle choices and individuals tend to migrate to the lifestyle that works best for them.

You should really try and find a way to open your mind. Passing judgement, once again, without having truly experienced it is simply foolish.

I feel sorry for people who are born in small communities and never experience what life has to offer. There are so many alternatives with so many fantastic experiences out there. Life is about the journey and what you can experience and learn along the way. Some don't figure that out until it's to late and they've spent their life in a one horse town, glued to the television putting down everyone else.

Never been to a Lions game at FF before(last time was in Pontiac about 15 years ago), but am determined to go to one this year. The potential games I was looking at were Buf, NO, and TB.

A few questions though,

Is there a particular section in FF that I should avoid due to an obstruction in view?

Where do you guys usually prefer to sit?

On Stub Hub(unless you guys suggest another ticket outlet),is there a way to split the cost of the seats with friends when making the payment online?

Sorry for all the questions, but I really want to get to a game this year and at least see Calvin live once in his career. Pray

I'm waiting for the other foot to drop where you call everyone who doesn't have a daughter going to school for the first time today an idiot.

But seriously, congrats. Big day for a parent.

Like by saying they are patient? What a concept. Laughing

You have put me down more than I have put anyone down. Every post I say you call me close minded. You must be real open minded to people that don't agree with your thoughts... Oh wait you just call them simple and say they haven't live and will regret life... hmmm..

I can't see any gain to that life. Any...

Cost is astronomical, you have no privacy, higher crime rates (typically), areas you flat out have to avoid. I can walk or ride a bike to anywhere in town that I can spend a dollar and not feel like I'm gonna get mugged or raped. I drove thru industrial Portland and see graffetti like I never have before, homeless houses of cardbard, and broken down buildings that I'm sure were pillaged and looted.

My sister is a single lady in her mid 20's making more money than me. She spends prolly close to what I do to in rent to share a 1800's house with 5 strangers. She doesn't own a car, so if my parents became deathly ill, she'd have to beg someone for a ride or hope she can get a bus ride down before they were dead.

So they have more restaraunts and bowling alleys... What makes that worth hearing your neighbors crap because you house is on top of theirs? She already had some guy jump off her old apartment building and kill himself.

Sounds like a blast.

Again if you read and not rush to judge (like you always do), you'd see I said your either brave or patient.

Holy cow. I feel really sorry for you, that is about as narrow a view as I could possibly make up Sad

You are just narrow minded Phreak. Just like DHLF. You guys should really be more open minded to skate's close mindedness and clear understanding of what it is like to live in various places.

Just an FYI, you don't have to hear or see your neighbors in big cities. Plenty of apartments I have been in in which you can't hear anything or anyone around. And I'm sure there are other living choices for your sister, but she chooses to live were she does. There is so much life in big cities. Different people with different experiences and different cultures. If you think an extra bowling alley or a couple restaurants is the only benefit, you are sadly mistaken.

Cost in rural areas just as bad in other ways. You pay more for everyday stuff because transportation costs to get it there higher

Rice got cut and suspended. Great choice given the controversy over his earlier punishment and this new video coming into light.
