People on the east are more intense, straight forward, confrontational, political, culturally intuned, intellectual, negative, manipulative, sense of entitlement, competitive, jealous, angry, and insecure

where as

West coast people set trends, film movies, are laid back, confident, superficial, phony, indirect, backstabbers, generic, business oriented and secretly smart.

Ummm. No.
Keep dreaming.
Like how we get to watch tv shows before west coasters...we get and rock fashion before west coasters.
In fact...your generic Christian movement is (yawn) generic. Kinda like your style....let's see anything you can get at your local mall%puffy sneakers and skatershit made in CHINA and/or local Waspafarian artist/homeless 20something year old who's just making a "stand, man!" Finished off with a "right on".


AND THROW SOME SALT ON THE HIGHWAYS WHEN IT SNOWS 3 inches and you all can't handle the pressure of driving/going to work.

Thank you! I'm an East Coast transplant and have thought the same thing. The reason they don't salt roads out West is because animals like deer will eat that chemically treated salt and die.

Deer and hoofed herbivores love salt. That's where the term "salt-lick" comes from. It's a salt formation that draws deer and other animals in to get their salt fix.

They don't salt the roads because it will kill deer and elk. However, elk don't hang out in big cities, so salting there won't kill anything but deer. It's not saving majestic wildlife, it's protecting the numerous deer.


This way, the deer can overpopulate and smack into your car. Plus, in Portland, you get the thrill of drivers who can't drive in 3 inches of snow and will spin out and smash into you. Add to that the fun of getting your windshield cracked from all the gravel they put down instead of salt.

By the way, fellow transplanted Easterners. The minute the car ahead of you chucks a rock into your windshield and chips it, take it into an auto glass place or Jiffy Lube so they can hit it with a torch, and prevent the long, spidery crack which will soon emerge and make your car look like a junker. Get it fixed-- if you drive with it that way back East, you will get pulled over.

Easterners think only degenerates have cracked windshields because you have to be a degenerate to wind up with a cracked windshield out east. Yet there are countless cars out


West with cracked windshields.

It's great fun here, really, until you have a car which looks like a junker from cracked glass and deer collisions. Yes, I finally hit a deer here, too. I'm initiated into West Coast culture fully now. I drove back East for 26 years without ever hitting a deer.

Out West the deer play frogger in traffic because there are too many of them.

I'd settle for rude Easterner in a fit of road rage, with a gun, over hitting a deer I couldn't see because I had to peer out from behind cracked glass.

People on the east coast, rarely laugh, are overly literal, extra serious, extremely stressed, into debating everything, and they are neurotic. I wouldn't be surprised if more people on the east coast have higher blood pressure levels than those from the west coast.


People on the west coast love themselves! They love to have fun, are fun loving and love to laugh.

I just wish I knew why east coast people are so intense and serious! I mean, I like them, but can't get with the extra stress and negativity they bring.

I've lived all over the US and the UK too, and while there are regional differences in culture and attitudes you will find that people are people wherever you go. Some people will give you the shirt of their back and others will try to steal it from yours. Some people are very uptight and others are happy go lucky. If you make a judgement based on where someone is from you're likely to end up stereotyping them. Being from New York doesn't make someone a latte-sipping yuppie any more than being from California makes someone a surfer. Everyone is different!

I found this article on a blog that gave a funny (and seemingly true) description of some differences between Midwestern Folks and East Coasters. Check it out here: clevergems.com/.../


I laughed pretty hard when I read it :)

In my opinion, people on the east coast, especially the south tend to be more friendly, laid back, and patient. (Not so much in the north, lol!)

The west coast might be more relaxed in general, but seem to be much more liberal in their life styles and politics.
