    Bad accents.
    Massive north - south financial divide
    Hard to find jobs... unless you want to work in one of the many pie shops.
    Talk about pies and prejudice.

    Chester's not bad. It's got decent shops, quaint old buildings and a museum with a statue of a Roman soldier taking a dump. :awesome:

    You claim to live in Manchesta but you have the audacity to disrespect Pie shops :curious:

    Why do you hold a grudge against pie's?

    They're so tasty :cry2:
    I do, but I moved from Reading when I was 14.
    I wasn't disrespecting them. merely stating that there's a lot.

    I'm at the University of Manchester,but I'm from down South, and by FAR the best thing about the North West is the abundance of South vs North banter. love it.

    Also, I swear down that there are far more Southerners than Northerners around the University. I was quite looking forward to returning with a Manchester twang, instead I've come back more of a posh ****

    This. Agreed.

    What has Yorkshire got? This is a genuine question. Their largest city is Leeds, a dump of a village in a middle of a roundabout. Lancashire has Bolton. Manchester and Liverpool are in a different league, in fact, are world cities (minor).

    I would never in a million, billion live in the NW. Horrible, horrible people, rubbish weather, their cities are dumps and the general smell of desperation is something that's unavoidable.

    Much like most places, some of it is very nice. Some of it is very grim.

    It's really not that cold here though, At least in coastal-ish areas.
    And it hardly ever snows (seriously)

    I'm from chester so I ought to be well informed on the city.

    Culturally it's a blend of flogging tourists for everything they have, and trying to copy liverpool.
    The city is mostly a very nice and upmarket kind of place, with a few notable exceptions (much like everywhere tbh)

    Eductaion in chester is generally pretty good, there's a few large state secondary schools and a few exclusive private schools. There's a nice rivalry between some of the schools too
    The university isn't brilliant on the whole though, but the nightlife is probably pretty good - the pub/bar density in the city center is pretty high. And some of them are very cheap (£1.50 a pint on weekdays, anyone?)
    Chester isn't that posh. There are posh and rich people, but the majority of cestrians are just normal people.

    Given the cold weather up there would I be able to see it? I'd have thought it would have shrivelled up?

    Either way I'm sure you can get the microscope and tweezers out.
