    I can't stand small areas, because they are so boring. So if I was forced to choose I would pick the city any day. Right now, I'm living in a apartment in the city centre. But I do like to visit the country side.

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Not complete horse****. Not by a long shot. Indeed your statement is truly idiotic.

    City dwellers contribute significantly in their labor and resources to wilderness protection, restoration and maintenance.

    Feral animals is not constrained to city dwellers, it is a human society issue.

    My point is that without people living in cities there is no wilderness; it would be despoiled by sparse but widespread human habitation. It is a tragedy for us who love the wilderness that more people don't live in cities.

My point is that without people living in rural areas there is no wilderness; it would be despoiled by sparse but widespread human habitation. It is a tragedy for us who love the wilderness that more people don't live in rural areas.

    There's plenty of space in the rural areas for city people, come on over.

    Rural is my choice, but a good church must be not fare.

    The first part tracks, but I have no idea what you mean by the second part.

    Are you saying it's not acceptable to consume a good church?

    Consumption of bad churches is ok, then?

    I have chosen to live in the rural aria of the Black Hills, in real life. The city can go slide into the sea.

    Im a big city boy born and raised and lived in most of my life. I now live semirural and Id rather be in the city.
    When I shut my door in the City or now semi rural its the same, im in my own castle. The city provides what you cant get rurally, health care is superior and much faster to recieve, theres far more services and of course theres the drawbacks. I do plus's and minus' and to me the city comes out on top

    I was raised rural, moved to the city to go to college. Been in the city ever since, New Orleans and Houston. I voted city. I enjoyed the increase in women to date, rural areas are pretty confining in that sense, and its an important part of life. I've enjoyed the jobs available, interesting friends you can meet, convenience of shopping and medical care, variety of hobbies one can pursue. I live in the burbs, but I could take the city center also.

    Given but these two options, I'd choose to be as far away from those city lights as possible.
    Far enought, so I would be able to see the stars at night..
    Right now its "small town, USA " for us....a compromise
