Effluent from the sea

Posted on Sat, Nov 21, 2009 at 2:46 PM

I have had it this awful city and I haven't been able to properly word how I feel until I looked Halifax up on urbandictionary.com.

Everything written below accurately describes my feelings for Halifax. Enjoy :)

"The capital of Nova Scotia and the largest city in Atlantic coast Canada.

Also the dreariest place in Canada, well known for being chock full of military types and all that goes with it. Liked by those who've never been anywhere else...i.e locals.

Downtown is a concrete jungle with little done to preserve it's history, absolutely nothing to do or see and mainly full of unfriendly, ignorant hillbillies (I would add in Toronto girls here too)...transplanted into an urban environment. High unemployment too. 'Deliverance' in the city.

'Night life' constitutes various bars and clubs full of aforementioned types which is about as much fun as being skinned alive and then lying in a bath of salt water afterwards.

Halifax official motto: 'riches from the sea'.
It should actually be 'effluent from the sea' "

---Thank you Urbandictionary ;)
