Have not spent much time there. What's it like? Is it paradise? I really really want to know. Tell me all about it, Greenway!

Never been, but I've known a lot of people from GB. They love their hometown and seem to take an unusually great amount of pride, but they all seem to hold onto Flint as if it's the Motherland. And, I'm not talking about just lately, this is something I noticed as an undergrad, too.

I got lost in Flint at night in a Corvette when I was 16. I started running red lights hoping to get pulled over.

I've been to Ortonville one summer when I was reffing in that Red Hacker tournament. I didn't get stabbed or nothing.

Red Hacker was a knockoff of Gus Macker back when those tournaments were big.

I used to get dragged up there when my ex-BIL went to GMI. Not a fan.

Born and raised in Flint, and Grand Blancers are pieces of shit. See Barnes, Trevor. (just kidding, Trevor has my eternal respect for all he did until he sold out, which I can't blame him for).

It's kind of where people from Flint move to in order to feel uppity. The ones that grew up in Grand Blanc (as well as those that move there) have a certain arrogance like they're so above people from Flint. But then at times, especially to people from elsewhere in the state, they try to claim "Flint", as if living near Flint and occasionally driving on 475 with their doors locked gives them some sort of toughness.

Thanks. This goes right to the heart of what I was wondering.

Born and raised in Grand Blanc.

Fantastic town up to about 1990. Went to shit after that. Moved out around 2000. Definately have a higher opinion of themselves with no merit.

I always get it mixed up with Grand Ledge. I have never been to Grand Ledge. Is either one grand?

Hey f you man, we didn't stab visitors when I was growing up there. Their tires maybe, but never the body. Of course, the rules might have changed since the 70s.

What do Ortonville residents call themselves? Ortonvillagers? Ortonvillage People? Floyds?

Flintoid sounds like some mutant alien robot something or other character. If I was from there, I'd prefer to be called a Flintite.

I did say I didn't get stabbed. So, that a bonus for Ortonville.
