This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

What happens when you you combine a very loud New Yawker, an enraged Hillary supporter (the same person), a DNC rules meeting, and TV cameras?

This.

For some reason, I find this super, super funny.  That lady would stick out like a sore thumb around here... :haw:

Just like you folk stick out whenever you wander out toward the edges.  You know, when you actually get out and about. :p

I live only 2 hours east driving time-wise from Zachary - and there are a few neighborhoods in this city where that woman would seem average or just be acknowledged as a trasplant from the east coast. (Probably because she or her husband have a job with either P&G or KROGERS.)

This city has a national reputation as "conservative", but thats really the county. The city itself and a few of the neighborhoods have majorities that are very "liberal" or at least vote Democrat consistently every election.

I did my first field season in Indiana with ND. I'm from rural noerthern New York, which is farm country. the two areas are virtually identical climate and culture wise. Which proves the old joke about New York- the further you get from NYC the more New York state resembles Indiana.

Rural NY is very nice!  I've been out there a few times!

You know, when I went to western Missouri for a USAF assignment, I felt right at home.  It felt like I was in Indiana--the people, the climate, the land--all very close to what I was used to.

  I'm always painfully aware of how much of a yokel/touristy type I must seem when we go places.  When I was in Madrid, Sevilla, Florence, Rome, Venice, Nice--all I can say in my defense is at least I didn't have a fanny pack on. :o

Every time I go anywhere in Spain people think I'm Spanish*, when that falls through they accuse me of being French. I'm short, skinny, badly groomed and I have a big nose, so I guess it's not much of a stretch.



*This drove some of my fellow americans nuts last year, especially the ones who speak the language better than I. They felt cheated, I guess. I felt like Mau'Dib.

When traveling abroad, I eschew the fanny pack in favor of the utility codpiece.

I speak Spanish so poorly, I fit in like a native in Andalucia. :haw:

Man.  That lady was annoying, shrill, and a really, really bad representative of her opinion.
