Pretty soon we'll need a thread "Unlimited - It Happened in the Corridors of Toronto City Hall".

This is a peach of a thread and well worth reading from the start if it's new-to-you. I particularly liked the video on hillbilly vocabulary. There are some great people down that way, with my Nanna's relatives still living in the hollows around Johnson City. Many of these families trace their roots to the Watauga settlements of 1772. Eight generations later, still not going anywhere.

Anyone interested in reading the history of the Scots-Irish in America, take a look at James Webb's Born Fighting. Turns out that those rednecks, Okies, Blue Collar-types everyone likes to make fun of are also the ones who have disproportionately fought for America, too. Today they continue to constitute a large part of the military, esp. those in front line roles.

Malcolm Gladwell touches upon the culture of honor that defines the Southern Man in Outliers, with specific reference to Harlan County and other blood feuds.

Of course, that's not denying the humor potential that's so evident in this thread. That corn likker makes people do crazy-assed shit. :smile

Why is this a crime? I could understand criminal charges if they were Hot Pockets, but pizza rolls, come on.

No such thing as a natural hair color in Gastonia.
