    Pick Your Side... West Coast V East Coast...

    So this Random Thought got me thinking..

    That is the best part about being in the the Eastern Time Zone. The world revolves around us....
    Hmm...which coast is the better of the two... Please refrain with your biggie and tupac references.. go!

    In Eastern Time we get in all the action first.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    West Coast because during the NFL season games start at 10:00, 1:00 and 5:00. Pretty much takes care of the day.
    I think that one of the great signs of security is the ability to just walk away.

    The west coast is too spread out. A good thing about the east coast is that it is easier to travel between multiple cities/regions.

    When December 21st rolls around the world will come to an end. People on the west coast will have an extra three hours before oblivion. I think this is reason enough to say "west coast".

    If I got to choose a coast I got to choose the East
    I live out there, so don't go there
    But that don't mean a brotha can't rest in the West
    See some nice $%%$$ in the West

    sorry raf, I couldn't resist

    This is difficult as the midwest is obviously the best...but I am being asked to pick which coast is best...

    East Coast has NYC. NYC is the biggest city in the US. The Atlantic is nice ocean that doesn't have many tsunamis. I like Maine.

    East Coast.

    Manhattan makes it, Brooklyn takes it, and California fakes it.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Actually I like both the Pacific and Atlantic regions. Up to a few years ago I had no desire to go to CA other than to see Yosemite. Now my sis lives near the coast, and I have to admit it does not suck as much as I thought it would. Some parts of it are downright fantastic.

    One of the best days of my life was when I left Michigan for California; earlier this year I left a conference in Pasadena early to hit the beach. About 10 minutes along side the Pacific every last gram of tension left my body and I was ecstatic for two days. I only travel east for business and to Michigan for the wedding or funeral obligation.

    Grew up on the west coast. Adult life on the east coast.

    And I still travel back and forth all the time.

    Love em both!

    Grew up on the West/Left Coast. My heart is always there.

    I live in the NYC metro area now and there are many things I love about it, but it just isn't the same.

    The West Coast still holds a special place in my heart since I was raised there. The East Coast has a lot of good stuff (and is where I'm living currently) but it just doesn't feel like "home" to me.
