  3. Armed insurrection in the us?

    A question for the americans on this forum. If Trump loses and given he has been inciting his followers to violence how likely, do you think, are riots etc after the presidential election? Some of his followers do not seem terribly rational.

  9. American English Dialects

    Regional dialects interest me immensely and this was an interesting article to me. According to the two maps, I border between Virginia Piedmont and Southern Coastal in dialect and that's probably true. I think their categories though are far too broad to capture every nuance of speech in this...

  13. Seaside Heights, NJ roller coast finally being removed from the Atlantic Ocean.

    Well, the police finally allowed people to drive along Route 35 through the wee towns that were destroyed by hurricane Sandy. You were not allowed to get off the road to 'gawk' as some say.

  16. 50 State Stereotypes (in 2 minutes)
