actually, i think i picked that "bite me" thing up from richie goodtimes. he's just so cool that i want to talk just like him. nobody gets anything past that guy, ya know? he's invincible. so, i'm gonna be just like him and all that tough guy shit. ya know?
i know, i know. just being from that city makes you beyond reproach in the "tough guy" department. but, you have to admit, detroit is a shithole and it's contributions to the world consist of alice cooper and house music (and maybe a couple other lame bands. motown doesn't count. it wasn't really detroit, but some sort of mutation). oh, and some smelly crappy machine that polluted most of the world's atmosphere with archaic technology.
however, as tough as your shrinking city is (always in the top five for crime and all), tacoma was, back in the day, pretty awful, too. about the time i originally moved away from tacoma, it had the highest crime rate in the nation. and my neighborhood, parkland, had the highest crime rate in tacoma. so go figger, eh? drugs, death, destruction and lotsa bored drunken teenagers. it was heaven.
