The average New Yorker

Postby 1mpious » Thu Aug 24, 2017 2:57 pm

The average New Yorker:

* Lives in an apartment with no heat.
* Has 7 sets of clothes.
* Keeps two jobs.
* Rides the subway daily.
* Enjoys rap music, Christianity and books about land.


How about the average Parisian, Londoner, SanFranciscan or Sydneysider? :think:

I doubt there's an average Londoner.. everyone has such an individual portfolio of their urban remit for survival.

Average londoner = magsj

* Typical slut bag who thinks she's special
* Attends fancy parties pretending to be a rich socialite
* Wears ridiculous clothes, different colors/hues as apart of her "artistic expression"
* Reads 50 shades of grey book on a train for sexual intellectual stimulation
* wears a shitload of make up for obvious reasons...

Mannequin you seem upset. What's wrong buddy?

Why would I be upset?

Was just pointing out what a average Londoner is. There's nothing I said that isn't true...

It just seemed so personal. Like it came from the heart. The passion with which you expressed your thoughts led me to believe that you had some strong emotions about the subject, and I guess I just took it as you being upset. Its ok if you don't want to talk about it.

:lol: What?

You couldn't be more off if you tried.. apart from the 'attending fancy parties' and 'my artistic expression', you couldn't be.. more.. wrong.

You need to work on your astuteness, because.. you ain't got any. :lol:

If there's anything you need to know.. just ask ;) dont't be shy :D

You're not a Melburnian until you follow football.

Grand Final today, 100,000 in attendance and Richmond won for the first time in 37 years. Tears all around.

People annoying me, Petal.. which is why I don't mix much, and so only go out to schedule. The only time I go for a wander is when abroad. :)

The average Londoner is no more.. born and bred Londoners are moving out, and a foreign and out-of-town contingency moving in to take their place.

There's no point in being a female, if a gal can't paint the town (and her face) once in a while. ;)

I had heard that. A couple of friends visited London a few months ago and said the same. Cucumber sandwiches and Downton Abbey buried forever. So sad. I hope we don't suffer the same fate some time soon.

As the person closes to San Francisco, I shall attempt one of them....

The average San Franciscian is fairly self absorbed....
is a foodie.... loves to see and be seen.....they are very, very proud
of their city and believes, rightly, that it is the greatest city in the world....
live and let live is really their motto.... the average person makes no
judgments about other people.... the city, and state for that matter,
believes in the motto, let your freak flag fly... it is all good.....
the average San Franciscian takes their superiority for granted... because
it is the greatest city in the world......there is a lot of wealth in the city
but people really don't flaunt that wealth like they do back in the Midwest
or the east coast.... I've talked to billionairs and I really couldn't tell that
they were billionairs... people told me later....

The average San Franciscian believes in the good life, eat, drink and be merry
for we live in San Francisco and you don't....the average San Franciscian
really does party hard... it is a great drinking town.....I must admit,
the average person is a bit on the shallow side... with fashion statements
being the norm.... even dressing down is a fashion statement...we, the wealthy
are no different then you.....

if you don't know a dozen gay people, you are simply
hiding in your room because gay people are simply a norm here and
they are very out front telling you they are gay.....

you can be whomever you want to be in San Francisco because
no one cares enough to object because everyone here
is trying to be what they want to be..... it is a strange, strange
city because you can be whomever you want to be....
and no one will stop you... most likely, no one will notice because
everyone is just doing their own thing....be as weird as you want
to be in San Francisco and that is what makes the city special...
that and it is the most beautiful city in the U.S and I have been to
most of the U.S and S.F is most beautiful city in the U.S, without a doubt....
do you doubt? ask any San Franciscian, they will tell you.....

I am pleased to backtrack on what I said above, as in recent weeks the foreign contingency has been drastically decreasing in numbers due to self-expulsion back to their own shores, from fear of being impoverished due to tightened purse-strings as far as they are concerned. :D
