[quote]the daily beast is a liberal arse publication, so i'd imagine he's a liberal. i didn't look at his history though [/quote] Yes. Very liberal. The comments from "open-minded" liberals on the article are pretty great as well. ...

re: What is up with BR area rich kids going to school at U of Alabama? - Wario Balotelli
[quote]if you believe there is a single type of "good college town" then yes, it isn't. i think you and mike are looking at this through the perspective of the cliched/typical college town [/quote] I didn't mean to imply a type. What makes a good college town for me differs from your definition...

[quote]like genro said, youre looking at this from an adult perspective [/quote] I freely admit that, but having the referential experience of other "college" towns makes me skeptical of any claim that either town is a "good" college town. ...

[quote]We're all also viewing this from the adult perspective. We've graduated, gotten careers, and pay taxes. The overall dynamics, infrastructure, and amenities of a particular city matter more to us. [/quote] If there is anything I am guilty of in this thread, it's this. I go to a fun college ...

[quote]art galleries? besides art majors, very few, if any, college kids would go to these [/quote] You are misunderstanding how galleries can be used. You can readings, meet and greets, book signings, all sorts of cultural events in galleries, as it's about the space rather than the fact of it...

[quote]you were doing so well until you devolved into that [/quote] Oh I don't use that phrase lightly. It was billed as the biggest Starbucks in the world or something, and I really fricking hate it. Allow me one pretentious caveat. I just hate Starbucks with an unholy passion. ...

[quote]baton rouge isn't my favorite town either, but you don't have that many legit medium-sized (over 150k pop, under 1M metro) towns with a legit/major university, either. orlando, tampa, and a variety of places in cali? [/quote] This is true, and I realize that BR is in a weird position. LS...

[quote]Tuscaloosa has all those things as well, and public transit. I'm on the Crimson Ride every day, along with thousands of other students; it's excellent. [/quote] The only place to get coffee on the strip is TCBY, otherwise you have to go to the campus Starbucks, a place devoid of any soul. ...

re: What is up with BR area rich kids going to school at U of Alabama? - Wario Balotelli
[quote]when i think of "college town" it's a very small (ignoring student population) town that dies in the summer and over christmas.

[quote]Truth is, almost all will never leave and continue to think the exact same way relative to what they expose themselves to, and so they end up making big distinctions between various parts of the same region like BR, Oxford, and Tuscaloosa. Honestly, the only distinguishable deviation from the...

[quote]"Getting away" in this context has nothing to do with cultural differences. It's about new friends, new people, new experiences. Going somewhere where no one knows you or expects anything of you. [/quote] Sure. It's more about finding the familiar in the unfamiliar, which is a common hum...

re: Difference between European leagues - Wario Balotelli
[quote]I've often heard commentators/pundits mention how one player wouldn't fare well in another league or how his skills are best suited to this or that, for example that the EPL requires a lot more fitness because you must play up and down the field.

[quote]Agreed... Leaved the state, even if it's just a semester. Matter of fact, take a year off and travel the country, South America, or Europe, and learn shite people with college degrees, 2.5 children and grand children will never learn.

[quote]Fact 1: Alabama is a somewhat better school than LSU academically [/quote] I've worked at both institutions, and the difference here is negligible. Like in terms of teachers, students, curriculum. Some incredibly smart kids at both schools. Absolutely horrible administrations at both sch...
