10 Things New Jersey Natives Miss About New Jersey When They Leave

10 Things New Jersey Natives Miss About New Jersey When They Leave

It may be the most hated state in the nation, but it's the dearest in my heart.

Usually when I tell people I'm from New Jersey, I get bombarded with a series of mindless questions:

"Is it true that you don't pump your own gas?"
"Do you guys really say 'New Joisey'?"
"What's your exit number?"

In the eyes of the rest of the world, we New Jerseyans seem to originate from some sort of extraterrestrial race.

However, not all of us are composed of fist-pumping guidos/guidettes who clearly can't handle their alcohol intake.

We're just New Jersyans. We eat, sleep, and drink a ton of Dunkin just like the rest of "yous."


Jersey Shore House- Seaside Heights, NJ

It recently has come to my attention that it been two years since I lived in the great Garden State, and I believe I'm starting to experience some sort of "Jersey withdraw".

I know. I sound absolutely insane.

Who could ever miss the state that gave birth to the notorious Jersey seven? In other words, Snooki, Vinny, Sammi Sweetheart, Jwow, Ron, Pauly D, and The Situation.

Even though the water in our shores are bluish-green and "The Sopranos" ended in 2007, there are still a ton of wonderful things that I left behind in New Jersey. Many of which I am going to attempt to identify while listening to Frank Sinatra and skimming through episodes of Cake Boss.


Seaside Heights, NJ

1. New Jersey bagels are the bomb.

In Jersey, we know that bagels are much more than a piece of bread with a hole in it. That's why there is no other place in the United States of America that can compete with our bagels. We have the best tasting and looking bagels in the nation.

2. Diners are better than any restaurant.

Where else can you get a coffee and a plate of disco fries at 3 A.M.?

We have 525 diners in the state of New Jersey. If you're ever lost just pull up Siri and ask for the nearest diner. They are everywhere and they serve EVERYTHING.

3. Dunkin is love, Dunkin is life.


The ratio of Dunkin Donuts to people in New Jersey almost exceeds our ratio of people to square mile.

In other words, Dunkin is a drug and it shall be taken 3 times a day.

4. Our style.

In Jersey, we know how to rock that 'street style'. Military jackets, Adidas sneakers, Timberlands, and ridiculous non-official jerseys from Against All Odds are our go-to fashion pieces.

5. Weekend trips to NYC.

You're turning 18? Let's go to the city.

Spongebob is on Broadway? Let's go to the city.

Harry Styles is on Good Morning America? Let's go to the city.

Want to go see the Rockefeller tree? Eh, I've seen it 1,000 times, but I guess.

Let's just say that we definitely utilize the fact that we live so close to one of the greatest cities in the world.

6. "Going down the shore."

The Jersey shore is where it's at. Where else can you find boardwalks that span up to 5.5 miles long?

7. Full-service gas stations.

I am so grateful that I never once had to get out of my car to pump my own gas. I just tell the nice man at the gas station that I want a '20 regular' and he takes care of the rest.

8. Our sense of humor.

Ever since I moved out of Jersey, I noticed that my 'outsider' friends didn't understand my jokes. We have this smart and snarky sense of humor that other people outside of Jersey will never comprehend.

9. Weird Weather.

In Jersey, the weather is like a game of dice. We never know what season we're going to get.

10. Cursing ALL THE TIME.

If I had a dollar for everytime someone says "mother fucker" in NJ, I'd be filthy rich. Cursing is just a part of our daily vocab. Outsiders just have to "fucking" deal with it.

So...

...maybe we are a separate breed of human beings.

What's so bad about that?

We're a state filled with diversity, long shorelines, and five-star diners.

We're a state packed with amazing people who, depending on their mood, can be both kind and hilariously unkind.

We may never admit it, but New Jersey raised us and there's no other place we'd rather be.

Springs: Small Tools That Change Our Lives

Springs: Small Tools That Change Our Lives

A spring is actually the simple and small appliance made of crimped wire. It has many different functions and can be used in various industrial and everyday-life spheres. We don’t even notice it in our daily routine. Springs are here when we sleep on the mattress, open the garage door, drive the car and look at the wrist watch. So, how have they appeared in our lives?

This tale starts from the invention of the first mechanical pocket watches. It was the game-changing tool which appeared approximately in 1510 thanks to the German engineer. He introduced the first model of the pocket watches and added an innovative detail to them – clock spring. This small tool helped the whole mechanism work in a right way. Through the years watchmakers tried to improve the first project, but the spring remained in the construction of the clocks. Engineers are always in search for the best material to produce the powerful springs and to make their lifecycle last longer. The typical clock springs are made of stainless steel on the base of metal and ?hrome. This material is perfect for a clock mechanism, because the spring never gets rusty. There are many different names for the simple clock spring, it can be although called coil spring, coil assembly or contact reel.

Besides the clock spring, there are also various types of this tool: power springs, micro springs, conical springs. As it was mentioned before, you can find them in many fields of your daily life.

For example, springs are used in modern cars` repair. The clock spring are placed between the steering wheel and the column in every car. Either way, it helps to support the electrical contact in electrical system of the vehicle. Also, coil springs help to save lives in accidents – they are considered to be an important part of a safety bag mechanism. 

Talking about flat springs, usually it has a flat spiral plate shape. This is achieved by placing the spring into the cylinder, where it gets in a right shape. Flat spring has one basic function – it reduces the coil contact during the operation. These tools are mainly used in computers, office and medical equipment.

In its turn, micro springs are used mainly in healthcare industry, they are parts of the medical hardware and small devices such as hearing kit. Due to the small size and the shape, the manufacture of micro springs requires patience and accuracy. Just imagine that the typical size of the wire for micro spring is 0.1 mm. The engineer has to be really precise in order not to waste the material during the process. 

Today there are many manufacturers, who produce different kinds of springs. You can discuss every option of the material and the appropriate life cycle to the purpose of the spring you need.
