    @Juliepants:  This debate is not a thing.  Some uninformed people made the OP question her correct knowledge.  

     

    And hey…I can identify most of the provinces!  Learn our states!!! *shakes fist*  If you don’t, I’ll make you eat our bread.

    @TheMrs2013:  Yes, some of them do. I’ve lived in NY all my life (both the city and now Upstate) and many people consider my general area to be part of New England. But maybe that’s because we’re only a 30 minute drive from VT and MA.

    Did the writer mean it in a historical context? It would seem to me that the context (the time of the first flag) is referring to pre-America “New England” (as in the English settlement in what would later become America), not the area we refer to as New England a few hundred years later.

    The meaning of things changes over time.

    @peachacid:  BAHAHA mmm, bread.  Is your bread any good down there?  ‘Cause if it’s anything like the beer…. ๐Ÿ˜›  Just teasing!

    And that’s hardly fair to say, you have like….50 states or so and they’re scattered all over the place.  We have only a fraction of that and they’re all in a row, lol!

    @QuietOne: I am pretty sure England didn’t refer to all the colonies as New England.

    @Juliepants:  Did you see the thread about how pot was as widely available and used as bread in the United States?  ALSO…our states ARE in a row!!!!  From East to West…just like the provinces!  We just have some North and South movement, too…

    My husband asked me today if Las Vegas was in Arizona…..and he also thinks Chicago and Boston are states.

    At least everyone here knows the basic states!

    @colorofmyheart:  (someone tried to tell me that maryland was attached to rhode island… i question geography lessons in schools)

    This made me laugh, but sadly it’s because I’ve heard similar things or worse.  I’m from Rhode Island.  At my job, I’ve talked to people from all over the country.  Some people think RI is part of Long Island, NY.  Some think RI is an island.

    @Eva Peron:  Wow.  Now I feel much better about when my dad asked me if Cape Cod was “still Massachusetts or already Maine”.  Wrong direction, dad.

    @MissBoPeep:  I just moved from NYC  a few years ago and people from the 5 boroughs don’t consider upstate New Yorkers, real New Yorkers.

    Different experience.

    Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut.

    As a MA resident and Red Sox fan, I assure you New York is NOT part of New England. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And Ohio? WTF?
