Um bob...don't know what the hard on is over NJ but man...you're kidding right? http://njtimes.rutgers.edu/invent.htm http://www.nobel.se/physics/laureates/1993/ http://www.princeton.edu/pr/news/02/q4/1009-kahneman.htm Many many movie stars and athletes come from NJ. NJ has been famous for it's shoreline and has been a place to go in the summer for the longest time. There's been a lot of bad that we see relating to garbage and over population in NJ but times have changed and things got messy. The United States and the world, without the existance of the State of NJ, might have been a much more boring place and we might not have technology as we know today had it not been for the existance of a state named New Jersey. LOL I have to defend my home state. I am proud to have been born a Jersey girl <small>I'm sure I could find other stuff about the good things with NJ, but I don't want to. Too lazy. LOL </small>Split from this thread.
