Oh it's bad here too. I'm being defensive because an outsider's taking shots at my home. But of course Indiana has a racism problem.I'd be pretty careful comparing race issues considering attitudes in rural Indiana.
Got any suggestions? Now that the flag thing is off the table, I could use some new ammunition for if/when they strike again.I can rag on Georgia for a lot of things, but watch out throwing stuff like this around lest it stick to the wrong target.
Try NASCAR, Mountain Dew, Skoal, and the love of guys nicknamed Lil E?
If it wasn't for stock car racing, the world supply of crude oil would have lasted ten years longer.
Traffic. Attendance at anything other than football games. A completely dysfunctional Atlanta city government always fighting with Fulton county government. The fact that South Carolina actually grows more peaches. Needing to have "The Big Chicken" and "The Big Peach" as landmarks. Lack of street naming originality ("Hell, Clem, jest call it Peachtree.") The Recent Unpleasantness. Which state vegetable would you rather eat - corn or an onion?
I can probably come up with more, but don't want people to think bad of the place until the house sells
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Or throw in a first-round pick and flip it for a max-level point guard...
Ted "Hillbillionaire" Turner owns 2/3rds of the city of Atlanta.
Pro wrestling and NASCAR - the only "sports" that sell out on a regular basis in Georgia.
Their association with Coca-Cola as opposed to the much more hip Pepsi.
Kennesaw, Georgia - the only town in America where gun ownership is mandatory.
HAS ANYONE POINTED OUT THAT THE DOCUMENTARY CALLED DELIVERANCE TOOK PLACE IN THE FINE STATE OF GEORGIA
LOOKS LIKE THIS TIME WE MADE THEM SQUEEL LIKE A PIG THOUGH
haha, sorry this comment is late but I wouldn't take much of this to heart. Considering Georgia is the homestate of Jeff Foxworthy, a very well noted "redneck" lol, just thought I would put that out there. :P &plus he was born in a suburb of Atlanta. FYI. They are just as much hicks down there than we are up here I think, if not more.
Some people want it to happen, some
wish it would happen, & others make it happen.
Pressure is something you feel when
you don't know what the hell you're
If you are Irish you make your carbombs out of whiskey shots dropped into a pint of scotch. You know, like a real man. A real man who is wearing green and is hoping to mix it up later on.
Purdue - first man on the moon, end of discussion unless you want to talk about greatest basketball coach ever. There are people in Georgia who still don't believe that the moon landing even happened. This despite having the poor man's version of Purdue in GaTech.
Also the greatest baseball player to come from Georgia killed one dude and beat up a cripple who was heckling him.
And as mentioned, peaches are really more of a South Carolina thing, and being 2nd fiddle to SC isn't something you write home about.
There is a reason WT Sherman is an American hero and Atlanta is it. Too bad it didn't take.*

*btw, I don't understand stats or reasonableness in this thread, if it's backed by facts and reason then it ain't funny (which explains why the peaches thing isn't that funny)

As a resident of GA, but raised hoosier, I would like to point out two things.....1) IN has to have a better indoor toilet per capita ratio, and 2) GA Tech is one of the premier engineering schools in the world, while Purdue is...you know...Purdue.

I come across this , in one of the other forums I frequent..
And I just happened to notice these teenagers were from...... ..
YEP... you guessed it ........ ATLANTA
A Daily news show at an Atlanta High School holds rap competitions during lunch. Hip Hop is dead

the look on the one dude's face had me rollin'
therefore I warn ya , don't be drinking anything while viewing if you value your keyboard lmao
Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.
- Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
- Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
- Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.
Enjoy your time at PD!
