what kind of people... by xine on 13 May 2004 2:02pm
Hi all, I visit the site when I can and I enjoy reading what you all have posted. I often wonder what kind of community and society you live in. reading some threads, I gather that things and people in your society are very different. it's interesting.
what kind of people have u in your society?

A load of pig ignorant louts!

Good question!

I live in a small rural town-- full of family farms, old money, and historic homes. No commerce. Everyone knows each other.
We are currently trying to get our general store back open so we don't have to travel 30 minutes for a gallon of milk.
Very friendly and open. Lots of avid gardeners.

Ignorant American trailer trash (wiping tobacco juice off my wrestling souvenir t-shirt).

Still awaiting summer here in the U.K Christine.Would sooner be enjoying a pink gin in Raffles.I live in a small town and port today took a stroll along the riverside,watched the arrival of container ships from europe along with timber arriving from baltic ports(hope the timber was from sustainable sources)

Thanks for all your mail.

'How are people a load of pig ignorant louts?'

I find myself frustrated/irritated often with people who are ignorant or irrational, unreasonable. I don't want to sound superior or anything but I really wish people can be reasonable or at least rational, sensible it will make things easier. But I also know people ARE selfish it's a universal trait I think. but we are not asking for people to be self-sacrifical, just hoping for some balance.
Helen: such an idyllic life! I think cows are very cute animals. yes they are too big to acutally qualify to be cute, but they are cute.
George: u not happy with the people you have in your society too?
Pedro64: nice to live in a small town. it's simple, stable. it's summer here all year round! hot sweaty humidsticky. weather's been really warm the past few days, temperatures at 34 deg Cel. 'oppressive heat' was invented for such weather.

..well, there is always northern California....we over-exaggerate the earthquate potential to scare away the visitors. a week without a quake is unmentionable...our newspapers do a weekly summary of the intensities and they are almost always below the scale of anything notable. In my town at least, no street lights, lots of nice neighbors and a short hop to SFO our international airport...so Peter, no hot, sticky weather and no ships to watch unless I go to the city, a 20 minute ride up north...actually, no rotten cold temps either. welcome to boring california (except for Arnold)..must say that we have no cows, but the occasional coyote has been known to pass by and the deer eat everything we plant out front and leave their droppings to prove their arrival....and Peter, I can do a pink gin here without the airfare..not as memorable as Raffles (been there, done that once) and will have great memories at the least.....Sharon

Actually, I was presenting an archetype of a popular conception of Texans, which really doesn't bother me at all. Unless, of course, one happens to be a policeman or a small town sheriff and I happen to be in trouble for some reason.
