It's all relative, ain't it? Sure, compared to LA or Chicago, Buffalo is pretty damn rural. But compared to any place I've ever lived, Buffalo is pretty urban. For reference, I grew up in a town with barely more than 1,000 people.

That's ****in insane lol my cousin grew up in a town like that in Vermont. That's beyond rural bro you might as well have grown up on a commune.

But yeah i wasnt saying buffalo is rural.. it's a city just not a real city

Js a lot of upstate ny is actually really rural.. There are smallish cities up there too but that's not different from the rest of backwoods America

As usual, me and Anteater were on opposite sides of a debate, but to Ant's credit, that's always what it remains: a debate. So thanks for that too.

Hey, you know we have your back

Eyyy my hometown population is 960 lol
Graduated with a class of 25. Since then the school has become one building for K-12, with only about 8 graduating seniors every year lol.

The olds come in the summertime and the population doubles.

Yeah, if you could just go ahead and try to be a little younger so you can understand whats going on, that'd be great.

lol

Fwiw, I've always found you to be one of the more level headed and astute personalities around here.

Yup, honestly, I wouldn't change anything about where I grew up, even if I had the chance. It was a very peaceful and serene upbringing. For most of my elementary school life, we didn't even have a playground. During recess we'd just play kickball on the pavement. I know we had two different buildings for elementary school/high school - and I think it remains that way. My graduating class consisted of 14 people.

Yup, I grew up in New Hampshire. I've spent plenty of time in Vermont - generally, Vermont is even more quaint than New Hampshire. Though I'm 26, my living/location preferences are probably more akin to an old retiree. Peace, quiet, isolation, with the biggest draw for tourists being the damn foliage changing in the fall. My wife wants to move elsewhere and says: "There's nothing to do here!" to which I reply "That's just the way I like it".

I propose we begin a new group: MBOFC - The Music Banter Old Fogies Club - it has a real catchy sound, doesn't it: embofuc! Minimum criteria: you must be over 50 years old, still alive (at least clinically) and have had a blow-up row with at least one person half your age, whether here or in real life. Also, you should subscribe to the general idea that "kids today don't [insert grump of your choice here]". People will be moved to the top of the queue for admission who a) know how to use a rotary phone (or what one is) b) remember before there were cashpoints and c) know what a stylus is, outside of a computer tablet.

Who's in?

I agree with your wife. I liked visiting my cousins house but i couldn't handle living there. The name of the town was Mooretown (sp?) or something like that, off the mad river. There's like 1 store there and it's like the size of a corner store.

There's a serious sense of a tight knit community where everyone knows each other, which is a little too intensely intimate for me. This town is too small to me and it's like 30-40k probably. People are friendly and laid back and I'm just not lol. I'm like are you ****ing people ever in a rush?

I'm in. I had thought about starting a group like that myself. I'm certainly qualified, my blow up with Yorke Daddy, I'm sure, is still legendary
