I've been lurking on this forum for the past 3 weeks and finally decided to make an account when I saw some Paulsons a college grad could actually afford. From what I've seen so far, this is such an incredibly passionate and wholesome community! There are so many people on here giving out free chips and sample sets to new collectors, offering insightful advice and providing great services. Really excited to make this my next hobby.

Welcome from exit 135! There's a large New Jersey contingent here with some awesome chip sets and game setups. Enjoy the ride!

(And yes, I know officially you can only say you're from an exit on the GSP.)

Not true! That's just some old north Jersey snobism...

Welcome, Baba. Former East Windsor, Hopewell, and Princeton proper resident here, working at RCA's Sarnoff Labs and the university's Plasma Physics Lab.

If you ever decide to head south for a meet-up, feel free to bring along a trunkload of pizzas from Conte's! :cool

LOL my sister in law is moving to Princeton Junction. Guess what my first detour is going to be when I first visit them?

You work at PPPL?!!! Ugh I'm so jealous, tried to land an internship there during college. My current job is super boring, I'm doing software development work for a finance company in nyc while finishing up grad school. The walls are this depressing shade of green, it's like I'm in the matrix

Welcome from exit 132 GSP / exit 11 NJT.

My "south jersey line" is the Driscoll Bridge. Anything south of that might as well be Alabama.... :LOL: :laugh: ;)

Way in the past. My wife worked there too. The best part was having faculty privileges at Princeton...

anything below rt 78 is the deep south :)
At least make it Rte 22 -- 78 didn't exist when I was a kid. :cool

You'd want to give away all of Rutgers and Princeton? Nutzo!

Most of the Jersey guys I know draw the line at 195 -- keeps both the above and the north Jersey shore.

Dang, our house was exactly due west of the bridge, in Edison -- no wonder we all grew up with split personalities. :confused

Yep, that's north Jersey, all right -- where the hicks can't even spell "potato" (probably because they read the Star Ledger -- at least, the funnies). :cool:cool:cool
Yep, that's north Jersey, all right -- where they haven't had anything to brag about since 2006!

Well, to be fair, what's south Jersey had since, say, 1806?

The lower-class Philly suburbs, inferior beaches, and the Pine Barrens. That's about all she wrote... :cool:eek:

p.s. OK, the Jersey Devil.

Hmmm, they used to be a substantial notch below Aljon's. Guess times have changed.

How about PJ's Pancake House on Nassau? Still any good for breakfast?
