    1. 3.30 in the city, 3.05 in the 'burbs
      Depends on which job. Anywhere from 2 miles to 40 to 2000 miles.
      30-45 minutes to the base with no traffic, up to two hours in heavy traffic. 25 minutes to either airport with mild traffic, slightly longer on the train
      Trains are mostly reliable and on time but not the cleanest. Buses are plentiful during rush hours but if you're trying to catch one very early or very late be prepared to wait.
      :iono:
      I live on the south end of downtown Chicago. Crime is a little more intense a mile or so south of here but otherwise it's not bad. This whole area has been undergoing gentrification (that means white people live here) for a few years now.
      :iono:
      Fucking retarded. Highest in the country when you add in state, county and city. Also, moronically complex.
      At the grocery store, a touch over 3 bucks for the store brand, more for the fancy one in the glass bottle. At the kwik-e-mart downstairs not that much more.
      I'm committing a felony simply by keeping all of my firearms in my residence within city limits. I only carry when I go into areas of town that I know are above average in threat level because getting caught means state pound me in the ass prison. Tried by 12 > carried by 6 if I'm going into certain neighborhoods, tho.
      :iono:
      If you don't like Chicago weather, just wait.

      F'real tho, it's not that bad. Winters can be harsh but you get used to it. Summers are hot inside the city but the lake helps to regulate it somewhat. Spring and fall are pretty nice.

      More amusing answer: Chicago has four seasons. Almost winter, winter, still winter and construction.
     
  5. Awwwwwww for me?! ....... You guys! :heart:

    6.3%

    9. What's the price of a gallon of milk?

    12. What is the weather like there? (lots of rain? very humid? snows a lot?)

    I love it here. T-shirt weather year round. The heat is overrated by people who have never actually lived here.
     
  8. 1. What is the average price of gas (87oc)? 2.81 right now
    2. How far do you live from where you work? 0 miles
    3. How long does it take you to drive to work? 0 min
    4. What is the public transportation like? (on time? crowded? falling apart?) there's a crappy bus system. Apparently they have a decent light rail downtown, but never used it.
    5. What the average income in your area? From the combined sources, around 50k per household in our city, but that changes drastically depending on the part of Phoenix you live in.
    6. Is crime a problem where you live, or near by? Don't leave your keys in your car like you can at Coqui's house, that's all I"m saying. We don't seem to have major problems, minor break ins a few times a year, a domestic dispute, dead body found dumped in the river, minor things you know.
    7. What's the property tax like? 1400 last year
    8. What's the sales tax like? Ugh. 8.8% and likely going to increase to 9.8% to held fund education

    10. What are the gun control laws like in your area? The best (meaning very little laws)
    11. What are the public school like? Don't go.
    12. What is the weather like there? (lots of rain? very humid? snows a lot?) It's Phoenix.
     
  9. Funny comparing my answers to Kyle's.
     
  10. I've lived there. The heat is no joke if you're not used to it. Fortunately, it's a dry heat though so it's not as miserable as say 90 degrees in DC.
     
  11. gtfo
     
  12. Hasn't Pheonix become the Kidnap Captial of the US now because of Mexican drug gangs?
     
  13. If you're summer averaged 75 degrees, wouldn't you think 95 was pretty bad?
     
  14. It's interesting. I found the dry heat in Denver to suck ass. When it got seriously hot, it was like walking in a blast furnace. I don't mind humidity, but then again, when I go outside, I expect to sweat and dress accordingly.
     
  15. Yea, well, yea.
     
  16. Yeah, but they're all Mexican, who cares.

    Since drool stole my answers for my current location, I can give you info from my last place of residence, Cleveland.


    1. What is the average price of gas (87oc)?
    http://www.clevelandgasprices.com/ but near my old place is $2.65 currently

    2. How far do you live from where you work?
    19 miles

    3. How long does it take you to drive to work?
    20-25 minutes

    4. What is the public transportation like? (on time? crowded? falling apart?)
    Apparently the best public transport in North America. That said the busses are quite good with lots available at all hours of the day going to many places.

    5. What the average income in your area?
    The region of Cleveland I was in was a bit skewed, being "The Premier Neighborhood of Cleveland" but between $35K and $85K is reasonable assumption.

    6. Is crime a problem where you live, or near by?
    In one of the safer areas of Cleveland, but that's not saying much (armed robbery outside my condo complex last year). One of the worst cities in the country overall for crime.

    7. What's the property tax like?
    $1300 a year for my 900sqft condo.

    8. What's the sales tax like?
    7.75%, cigs and alcohol are taxed more than most states plus an added county AND city tax on those products, called Sin Tax.

    9. What's the price of a gallon of milk?
    Walgreens for $2.29 usually.

    10. What are the gun control laws like in your area?
    See Coqui - No Assault weapons, but everything else is fairly open

    11. What are the public school like?
    Some of the worst in the country with a graduation rate under 1/3. The suburbs, however, are some of the best in the state.

    12. What is the weather like there? (lots of rain? very humid? snows a lot?)
    Everything you can think of. The lake reeks havoc with the weather patterns. Tons of snow, humidity, strange delay in spring time warm up and winter time cooldowns, "Indian" summers, some of the cloudiest weather in the country, summers that top 90 are not unusual at all. Tornados are not out of the question, either.


    NOTE - After doing my taxes I should make note that taxes in general are quite high. There is the fed income tax, obviously, then there is a state income tax. There are also 1 to 2 cities taxes depending on where you work (3.5% of my income for both in my case), and sometimes a school tax depending on what suburb you live in.
     
  18. I was used to Utah weather, it took one summer to acclimate, now anything below 80 is cold.






















































    That's not true, I didn't have to acclimate, I felt that way prior to moving here.
