It has come to my attention that a number of our members are from the relatively small state of New Jersey:
beccareb
zadojla
myself
Tim_Lou
Drakon1323
-location gathered from their profiles
While beccareb, zadojla, and myself are all very intertwined, I was wondering, does NJ earn the distinction of having the densest population of hypographers? If so, what is it about our lovely Garden State that is so special?

There's a visual I didn't want!

I'm sure there are other hypographers that would contend we are the densest.

I heard that they can get pretty dense in other states, too. Virginia comes to mind. *duck*

That wouldn't be quite so amusing if our water hadn't been proven to have too much uranium in it....

Uranium enriched water - just pre-emptive chemo-therapy!

I never thought of people from where I live as really being Jersey people, but I discover that I do have traits that betray me as a New Jersian.

I wish I knew more about South Jersey, even if they do root for the Flyers. It really is quite different, from what I hear.

Not from Jersey, but my dad lived in Long Branch for a few years, so still got a big kick out of this list, although I have to admit: like Becca, the most distinguishing thing to me about my friends from New Jersey is how *normal* they are, and how hard they are to pick out of a crowd. Having spent a bit of time in NYC though, I've definitely noticed this strange look that's a combo of consternation and discomfort when a Manhattanite slurs "BeeNTee"....

Jersey rocks!

Cheers,
