I'v allways herd its safer in rural areas. But i just got done reading an article thats says it is safer in the slums of New York City than Nebraska. What say you?

Having been to both the slums of NYC and to the state of Nebraska I can only say that the author has evidently does know where do get really good drugs. Come on hook a brother up dog. I'm good for it.

I think it would be easier to wake up dead in NYC for no reason at all, than in Nebraska rural area. (Pardon the pun--wake up dead)

Well lets put it this way.would you feel safer riding a bicycle down the streets of the slums of New York on a warm summer night,or on a rural Nebraska road.I know for sure where Id feel safer.

The only downside to the rural areas is the length of time it takes to get to a hospital in an emergency.

Other than that, I'd have to say the author is absolutely wrong.

What was the murder capitol of the world last year? Detroit? Washington DC? Maybe somewhere else, it sure wasn't Nebraska.

All in all, I'd rather take my chances in Nebraska than NYC anyday.

Besides, I happen to like the smell of a nice dairy barn ;)

I say Joe K took all the fun out of it by hitting the nail on the head!
Some people can express themselves so perfectly that it makes me sick.8^)
If they take accidents into account, then a farming area probably would be considered more dangerous for the unknowing.

"Safety" means different things to different folk.It's only a personal perception.Some folks feel safety thru self confidence and awareness of percueved threats,while others feel safe when armed to the gills and forted up in their bunker.I feel I can walk unarmed(cept my cane)down any street/road/byway,any time of day in my rural area safely,because I am knowledgable in what threats exist there and I KNOW that there is nothing of concern that I cannot "deal with".On the other hand,because of my inexperience,lack of knowledge and fear of percieved threats of human nature would NOT necessesarily feel at all safe and secure,even armed,in a metropolitan environment.

You said it JoeK......and it is the same here, dangers exist, one must be knowledgable of things around them and note it.

in the slums of nyc you'd have to split aluminum can money 50/50 with the hauler. you think that stinks, go to nebraska & try farming! since farm aid started, 8 million have failed. the rule these days is - keep yer family's collective butt warm, whatever it takes. 39 million immigrant mexicans are finding that out. "there's a can, meho! aw maaaaaan" :)
