Uh, yeah. Everybody in the pacific northwest is there because they are running away from something back home.


Uh, that's Jersey. Here, people come because of the huge tech booms, the military, and beer.

plus the white power utopia,


all those heroin/meth addicted bums must have really have a tough adjustment to the tech boom.


The only thing people in NJ are running away from are the rents in Manhattan. I live in the only transplant centric area in the state. Most of the rest of the state are the same as any other regular suburbia with lifers. Everybody in south jersey is 8 generation south jersey and lives within three houses of a relative, although north jersey does have the occasional executive that came from somewhere else and purposefully moved to the burbs.

So you're saying Jersey is full of inbreeding?

Probably in parts of south jersey, which should be moved south of the mason dixon line. And a couple of weird pockets of crazy hill people types.
