    You go to gentrified Omaha outskirts and you'll find the $800K homes. Maybe there's cheaper deals on the whole in Nebraska, Iowas though. But you're paying more for better economic opportunity.
    I was talking about Minneapolis-St Paul, not Omaha.

    Aside:: My cousins live in Omaha (Papillion). One makes 250K+ and the other 175K, they're both around 40 with 2 kids apiece and great homes though. At least Omaha has most of the same amenities you'd find in Dallas: abundance of Walmarts, Bank of Americas, Valero, QT, Exxon, S , etc. Hard to find those in a place like Minneapolis.

    I used to eat gyro 'til I found out. I sinned in ignorance. A part of me still knew I shouldn't trust in it though.
    I'd rather eat meat from a tortured animal than one given toxic fake growth hormones, nitrates, nitrites, preservatives, antibiotics etc. Lamb gyro is good. But I rarely eat at restaurants these days when I'm not traveling since I can cook.

    Twin cities has much better night life. And it has sports (all four major sports). Omaha has College World Series, which is okay; and they have Nebraska football; but they're not a powerhouse like they were a couple decades back. All that SEC cheating left them high and dry.

    I fear Minnesota is going to be at the center of this next recession, just like Detroit was in '08. When I/people say Detroit, we meant the U.S. auto manufacturing industry, and when I say Minnesota, I mean the brick-and-mortal retail industry which has been the predominant claim to fame for a long time.

    Minneapolis IS and has long been the retail capital of the world. Problem is, people are buying from bigger, Seattle-based online companies instead of Minnesota-based Targets and Best Buy's of the world. Is the B&M retail crash going to doom Minneapolis-St Paul? Hmmmm......

    true, but how ya gonna go out and find someone and get laid in like, February, when nobody's at the clubs outside of May-September? And let's not forget, the Somalis are Muslim and anti-alcohol, so ya always gotta keep an eye on the rando "alcohol is haraam, allahu akhbar infidels!!" type of shooter

    They already did get their version of Detroit. There's about a three mile stretch heading northward along the 94 a couple miles after the tunnel that is just abandoned warehouses and factories. I think Pillsbury or someone jumped town, when they had been huge.

    You are right about the high property taxes and stuff like that. And they frankly take everything California does and they pass it. They want to be Midwest Hollywood / San Fran so bad. So, they will have earned whatever comes down the pike in that sense.

    They got those torches on the sidewalk; and those bars are packed in winter. The train takes everyone downtown cheap.

    High property taxes
    10% W2 income payroll tax
    High gasoline retail tax
    Average retail sales tax

    All-wheel-drive requirement to live there year round, which is basically another tax, plus it makes you pay more for gas which is already expensive
    If you have a house there (or Wisconsin, Michigan, etc) you have to put that insulation stuff around your water pipes or they'll crack in winter causing a huge mess and thousands in repair bills. So that's essentially another tax.

    And in the summer months, you get 85 degree days with heat index well into the 90s. And because of the high humidity and low elevation, it doesn't cool down much at night, either, like for example in Denver or Flagstaff. But almost no homes have A/C. So you're pretty much at a thermal discomfort one way or the other, year-round.

    Who even wants to be there? Seriously.

    Not saying you should do either. I personally don't indulge those psychopaths by eating gyro though.

    Torches? I didn't see those. I just saw the sky walks. I guess because it was October. So people are used to walking through the snow and sand all winter to socialize? Must be a good time. Hope the furnace didn't go out on the night you met and took home your perfect babe for the first night of lovin', tbh.

    When did that pass? I don't remember that being a thing when I was there. But I can honestly say it doesn't bother me. There are some steep incline streets that if you try to drive them right after the snow, you'll slip backwards down the street. I narrowly avoided such accidents once or twice with my two-wheel drive vehicle.

    Yea, I did the skywalks in SP. Don't really remember doing them in Minneapolis. I don't think the best night spots aren't connected. You have to be out on the streets, in the bar / night club district(s) like by Target Center or Uptown even. Also, if you go to Dinky Town (IIRC) you'll find some college hotties. Easy enough to get laid there, tbh.

    It's not a law, it's an unwritten rule. If you don't have that you'll slip and crash and maybe die. So you need to have AWD capability if you're gonna live up north.

    I wouldn't say you need it if you don't require your car every single day, whether you're alternatively renting a car, carpooling, walking, etc. There's maybe three to five days before the snowplows do their jobs that it's that bad; and even then, if you're avoiding any hilly area and are taking flat roads, you're probably fine.

    yeah, there was a time, but now being a geriatric late 20-something it feels too creepy to be trying to bone 21, 22 year old little girls imo. I like yuppy young professional women roughly my age that I can share a good conversation with, not just drunk but also sober. You'll catch me talking to an early 30s career oriented woman or even milf before I'll ever hit on a little child under 23... eww. Feels like I'm taking advantage of her/getting it too easy if she's that much younger.

    Another disadvantage is that college age girls are EXTREMELY fertile (the most they'll ever be in their lives); that nuance starts to tamp down just a bit in my favor once they get to my age.

    But as you said... no dishonor in that, you can call me the Anti-Avante.

    Vikings getting a WR in RD1 to replace Diggs is interesting. Wish the dude was taller rather than the same height as Diggs.

    An OT and CB in RD 2 and 3 is good too.
