Travel back in time to a simpler time, way back. There is definitely no reality here! Do you love being around people who do nothing but sit around acting intellectual, theorizing on everything from existentialism to why the sky is blue? This is definitely your kinda place. This town takes political correctness to the absolute extreme, leaving no room for free thinking, which is kind of ironic.
Here are some things you should know...
If you're looking for a place where there is absolutely NOTHING to do (especially after 4:30 pm), then this is the place for you! It's a couch potato's dream come true! I used to get out and do stuff before I moved here. Now I'm hooked on TV because there is absolutely NO night life, and for that matter, no afternoon life, because everything closes at 4:30 or 5pm.
Love it when you can't find what you need in the store? We got that. Move here, and you will never again have to worry about being able to find those nice things you were used to buying, like clothes, shoes, coats, etc., 'cause we don't have them. No sirree. Do you hate having to make choices of what brand of an item to buy in a grocery store or drug store? No problem! We give you two choices, the most expensive brand, and the store brand! Easy, right?
Oh, yeah, and we get the least amount of sun in the world it seems. We have more rain and clouds than you have ever seen in your life. The public library spent thousands on a solar panel system to reduce it's electrical expense...a move that put them in the hole so far that they had to reduce the number of hours a day the place is open. Kinda defeats the purpose of being a public resource. :->
Does any of this make sense? No? Well, that's because it's Ithaca, where reality dare not enter and common sense is unheard-of.
