Good for you, hopefully they enjoyed it over there. Good riddance if they did.

Ah the indignation of a shallow, vapid, prick.

A current review of New Orleans:

Phew, what in the world is that smell? It seems to permeate throughout the city.

Per capita income

$31,619 vs Charlotte at $29,689

Houshold income

$51,761 vs Charlotte at $54,156

I guess me and dictionary have a different definition of "trounce"!

Um try 24k for per capita income in NOLA.

Arguing with you is fun.

A current review of Charlotte

Years ago, I visited friends that lived in Charlotte and we were very impressed with its beauty and price of living. Early this year I got a job offer in Charlotte and was extremely excited about the move. I moved my family to Charlotte, NC and we were excited about living in a city with a 'booming' economy. Charlotte today is nothing like it was 5 years ago. Indeed, Charlotte is growing and attracting people from many areas around the country. Such growth is accompanied with several problems. The crime rate is ridiculous. Home break-ins, car-jacking, assaulted-robbery, (you name it) happen daily. You can't find a decent 'starter home' in a decent neighborhood for under $250,000. The school system in Charlotte is unimpressive. Teachers are under-paid. I have been told to either live in South Charlotte, which is extremely expensive, or to move to Fort-Mill, SC for better schools for my children. That will not work for me since the commute is terrible. Taxes in Charlotte are extremely high. If you are moving to Charlotte be prepared to either pay tons of money for a home in South Charlotte where the schools are 'semi-decent', or have lots of money to send your child to private school. Traffic is absolutely terrible, with multiple accidents every hour. In addition, the area is suffering from water-shortage and you are not allowed to water your lawn or wash your car except maybe once a week for no more than an hour (you actually get fined if caught watering your lawn or washing your car on a 'non-watering' day).

At least we know there will never be a water shortage in New Orleans...why water your lawn when it becomes part of lake Pontchartrain?

Sounds familiar... Like someone tried posting it here before & was found to be several years old & most responses to that review were wondering wth that guy was talking about kind of familiar. ..

Well I live in Metaire with most of the people since New Orleans is mostly business and poor neighborhoods on outskirts, but yes, the per capita where I don't live has a $24,929 value for 2012.

Actually, if you want to get super specific, the per capita income for just my zip code is $198,040. Just slightly higher than the $29k for Charlotte

Lol ok. And you say I'm the one who dodges around the argument.

I highly doubt that's true, but unlike you I don't feel like looking it up

    • Title: Who's in my mouth.
      What you'll need: Blindfold. Multiple male participants.  
    • I just read this article!  I then found the profile and some highlights of his HS teammate, Joe Yearby since they were both so highly recruited.  Joe might be an interesting UDFA pick up.  I made a post in the draft section since it's a very niche kind of post. As far as the article and Cook, I love these things.  Getting some insight into these young men and what makes them tick.  But here's my main character concern about Cook: he got all the lessons and sermonizing from HS and College coaches, YET he was still putting himself into several BAD situations.  The animal thing really gets me.  And we don't have a shortage of dudes hitting girls in this draft or the NFL... On the field, he's fumbled too much.  He does have that great, explosive first step, but he's not the athlete you really want.  Good football player?  Probably, but his character and lack of athleticism (generally) is going to knock him down.  He could end up being one of those 2nd round guys who comes out and had a great career (so long as he really has turned the personal corner) making all the "re-drafts" pick him much earlier. Or in the article, the Eagles wondered if he would make it to their 14th pick.  Could be that we really know jack and squat about how NFL decision makers actually make those decisions.  There was a great article on NFL.com about that too. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000802432/article/information-wars-how-teams-get-the-real-draft-intel
