There are some parts in Jersey that are super funky. Of course our whole state has a rep for being like that, but its just a small centralized area.

none of these are surprising. and what are most of them associated with? The extraction of natural resources (in many cases fossil fuels) and the lack of epa enforcement. Appalachian streams have gotten significantly worse with the advent of mountain topping over the last decades, where the resultant debris and slurry is dumped into the headwater valleys of streams. should be protected by the clean water act, but what do you know, the last admin refused to enforce it against their buddies in the energy industry. Im looking at you hawker. you are destroying america for the sake of profit. how do you sleep at night?

They do what they gotta do to keep American running. You should be nothing but thankful.

Keep bitching and keep doing nothing about it. You're quite good at it.

The Pittsburgh area has a tradition of producing great football players so the real question is, what really is in the water up here?

I went with a friend who was hunting for geese around that area(closer to High Island) and you are right, the water was filthy and brown. So were all the naked 70 year people walking along the shore in a public.

The great state of Pennsylvania has produced many a great football players. Lots of great QB's come from Western PA aka your hood.

I've read that the state of New Jersey produces more professional athletes per capita than any other state and prep sports in Jersey I believe it.
