    i was born an raised in a suburb of Chicago - lived my first 55 years there

    now i've just moved to one of the poorest reddest southern states this past june, and i'm still not ''unpacked ''

    but i am totally qualified to give an opinion on the rural part of your post

    living in bum fuck egypt can be a real eye opener, somedays i really don't even know how to cope

    but just last week i decided that i should assume stupid as a starting point with anyone i come in contact with

    and you know it's working out for me, i am now quite happy and pleasant standing in the grocery store line for hours,talking amongst people i've never know, and getting such detailled personal information with just a nod and an occassional uh huh

    my big suggestion is before you engage in a dumb and rural do  yourself a favor -  get to the bathroom before you say your first hi yall....

      google "Carlin" and "stupid" for some talking point guidelines!
