Rust Belt + Other Belts

No Bible Belt or Borscht Belt indicated, map fail.

Are there any other Belts in the US of A?

Maybe Grain Belt, is that a thing?

When was the last time I learned something from one of DougRNS's posts?

when Doug informed you that his posts are educational. You learned that his posts are educational...no? So that post is the last time you learned fron Doug's post...final answer

So I got that goin' fer me, which is nice.

I have found that my laptop actually works better with the blue tooth and ant dongle, without the companion app functioning. I haven't had one drop without using the companion app but the one time I used it It dropped twice.

you forgot "get off my lawn"!

I'm not buying it. If there's a "Deep North," shouldn't there be a "North?"

Agree it's not that good a map. People from NY State will likely disagree that they have been excluded from New England.

Ten years after, I struggle nearly as much to do a metric century as I did with an Imperial century. The following day though, is almost normal, as opposed to those days of slinking around the house looking for something to eat.

What region do you consider yourself to be in?

Most is the region would consider it to be the Upper Midwest.

Mojo31 11-15-21 09:04 AM

Upper mid-west is Nebraska and Iowa. Minnesota is the frigid f'ing north. Right up there with North Dakota, Michigan and Montana.

Incorrect.

People are never going to agree on the boundaries/definitions of regions. Maps need to have grey zones to accommodate overlap.

Grey areas are all well and good, but wrong is wrong. The distant and skewed view of a Tejas compadre doesn't carry much weight against the region's citizens and multiple national agencies.
