colleges are all about status in MA and NE. they just pump out selfish wall st types, lawyers and bankers./QUOTE]
Right, certainly no doctors or anything valuable. Mass General is a weak hospital, same with the children's hospital.

I then attended Clark University( Worcester, MA) for my masters and initiation into the real world. My, my what a neighborhood surrounding Clark. I often phoned my daddy and said, " Oh my, what a gang of hooligans we have surrounding this institution. Why Father, I was hassled and insulted at the McDonalds on Main St by a group of horribly mannered subjects of the low class."
My brother has received less adulation from Father because he chose to study at Middlebury College, which is not located in the commonwealth of MASSachusetts. Now brother is constantly speaking of maple syrup and organic farming which just drives Father bananas.....as one might imagine.

I'm sure if you look up Emasspicoli, he'd be willing to show you around, he seems like a good dude.
Seriously, I'd love to go on an ice binge and tool around Honolulu for a few days. That would be pretty cool. I'm completely serious. I don't even like crystal. But it has it's appeal down there. Yeah, that would be pretty cool.
Oh ECSwell, go to Salem next month for the Halloween festival. There's all sorts of ghosts and mysticism in the air. They hung witches there, ya know. I would go if I could.
Oh and go to Dorchester and tell everyone that Marky Mark sucks.......
Wow, a state gets hung out to dry other than New Jersey. A new SWELLINFO.COM highlight.......acheivement.....

Watch a bunch of Adam Sandler movies. This will help you learn the social mores of the indigenous population. The chicks love a good hockey fight, it gets them all heated up. Something to look forward to.

Looking at the above post, in the interest of self-preservation you should probably pack your quiver and suitcase full of panties back up and hit the nearest flight to HNL via SFO. You come into our state as an outsider not having any sense of cultural relativism as apparently you've never left Big Island to know that different people from different places act differently even though it means the same thing. You're paddling into "our lineup" and squawking upon not getting immediate respect while giving none yourself. How would you react to someone doing the same back at your break in the motherland? You'd sick Da Hui on them. So pipe down when the Winter Hill Gang gets up in your grill and falses you. Cause and effect and capital punishment are modes of human nature and classical conditioning, no matter what the current White House regime will tell you.
Our version of Aloha Friday is FU Friday and all 7 days are the week are STFU Everyday. Massholes may not kill you with kindness but no one will be going out of their way to get in yours since our scowl is basically us just minding our own damn biz. What's also a perk and nice deviation from any fakeness of friendliness elsewhere is that anything we say or do is gonna be the truth and real and you can't ask for more than that. We stick by our own and protect those that can't protect themselves.
Just under 5 months ago, we had terrorists walk into our flagship event of the Boston Marathon that people from all over the nation and world come to enjoy and be proud of. Those cowards threatened the safety, well-being, and sense of freedom not only of all state residents but our whole country. They put several people under the grave and only just the other day did the last person significantly injured in the attack get released from the hospital. Have you ever seen an amputee? Well I was walking behind a triple-amputee getting off a flight Wednesday and it was humbling watching them function undeterred with 3 prosthetic limbs.
Where am I going with that? The first response from the PD, FD, MSP, EMT, ANG, SWAT and any other EMS was both immediate and astounding in magnitude. I'm very sorry if we don't wink and smile at you on the street, but we will fight and die for you. A large contingency if Marathon runners and their spectating families were not MA residents yet they were treated like they were. When your within our state lines, you're on our watch and trust me, you like it that way. I won't even get into how many MA residents came to your/our defense as part of the four branches on and after 12/7/41, or how many or few people from Hilo came to help on Marathon Monday, as those are beside the point.
Not sure where you're planning to "lay back" in the state, but if you ever get in a pinch on the punch in the windswell of the EMass 8-10', coming swiftly to your rescue will be a USCG predominantly staffed with Massholes not to mention the 100% Masshole SAR team from the local FD that will be all volunteers risking their lives for you if it's off the coast of a small town which is usually the case. It seems you're dead set on making the move a permanent one since you've already ordained yourself "EC" in your name. Lucky for you, there are a number of other EC states close by that you can run to if the Bay State isn't ticking your pickle or shining your undercarriage area as you'd like it to. New Hampshire, "Land O' The Free" will gladly take you into a place where vanity plates are gratis and so is sales tax. You'll have to drive to the PO to get your mail, pay for your own trash removal, and if your yard's personal septic tank overflows (no public sewage - sovereignty...remember?) then you'll need nose plugs and tall rubber boots.
As a matter of fact, I'll buy you a cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee and pay your bus fare to NH because I care not to pay into your unemployment aid for 99 weeks when you go complacent to the point of termination because your boss hurt your feelings when he frankly reminded you that his ass is on the line when you don't deliver the goods. Individual health insurance is mandatory in the Commonwealth, and we've even got a good, cheap option provided by the state to cover that imperative. Not to mention the fact you'll get smarter just by talking to the people up here; don't be scared that the median IQ is above room temperature though I know that may be intimidating. Yeah, the roads suck and they're always working on them, but if you've charged the world's breaks you're used to that without the repair. It's called Taxachusetts for a reason: you're taken care of very well.
How long have you been here? Yet you know all you need to know about us because of a couple stink eyes when you didn't use a turn signal in your pretty salmon-colored VW Bug with a flower on the dash. Only you know what you need to do for you, and apparently that's GTFO.
Stereotypes are funny because they're based mostly on ironic truth. I love plenty of jokes like that (you wouldn't like comedy if not), but they're kept in context and not applied to how I treat any of the diverse people I see each day. Problem is, when we really mean it we aren't respecting the party being targeted and actually stooping to a lower level of humanity. You think Massholes are judgmental when we are as liberal and open-minded as it gets. We just either have this look on our face from the cold or because of kooks like you charging our lineup. Forget the bus and coffee, I'll one up that and expedite the extradition by picking up the tab on a one-way for you back to HNL and even give you a free beer coupon.

Is everybody so bizarre and stuck up in this state? or am i just out of my element?
Visit the surf shops and talk to Rhode Island locals - not as uptight once you let them know you surf and are from Hawaii. Quite a few locals make the trip the Islands and may even know some of the peeps you know.
Understand that swells are few and far between in New England and the better and experienced surfers are pretty intense when a head high to overhead swell finally arrives. What the locals on the North Shore call flat (knee to waist high) is pretty much the norm here.
When it does get overhead in Rhode Island the good news is it clears out a lot of wannabees and leaves great waves for those that want it...
