Locked Thread Usually posted about one quarter-mile from a discussion which turned into "I don't like user x", rather than the merits of the existing user base.

You know what? It's really not cool to make fun of members. Some members may post abrasive content, off-topic, etc. Call them out for it in those threads. Keep the brackets to yourselves, k?

Why was my "Amazing, well not really" post deleted? That had nothing to do with targeting anyone.

Posts like that are typically Collateral Damage, if it doesn't stand up on its own.

Fundamental Theorem of AARoads - Let "y" represent the elevation above sea level in a certain area. If "Δy" between the highest and lowest values of y equals to 0, it's Illinois.

North Carolina - Where the world is centered in now, apparently. Capital city is Raleigh, which will catch up to NYC in number of skyscrapers.

Don't forget about Austin, Texas.

For comparison

Very doubtful that Raleigh will catch up. Look at Phoenix and its skyscrapers. They are shorter and it's more spaced out. Same reason with Charlotte having taller skyscrapers than most spaced out cities.

I took the skyscraper comment from another one of your posts:
And they want to built even taller skyscrapers to handle Raleigh's growth. I feel like we will be like New York!
