Guns and drugs are easily accessible. There's a liquor store on every corner. And there is always a police presence around.
What else can you ask for?

1. When I lived in the hood
the crackhead transvestite hookers kept the cops so busy that you could smoke a blunt on your front porch and not be bothered.

Of course, having to stay away from the windows when they were shooting at each other was annoying, but the rent was good. :)

2. i certainly hope you meant to put a /sarcasm in there..
:) .... as someone who spent a year living in "the hood" i can say that constant sirens, poor living conditions, abject poverty, lots of violence and crime....umm...i'm sure there's a few other reasons that i'm not thinking of off the top of my head.. :)

5. Hello eek MD
Welcome to DU.
One of the things some us do in the lounge is post copycat threads. Most of mine are meant to be sarcastic. This was in response to the two threads pondering the pros and cons of living in suburbia.

4. Take it from me
dont use sarcasm unless you announce it in neon.

For the less-enlightened among us. :7
