There are two triangles in North Carolina. The one I live in is the Piedmont Triad. The other is the Research Triangle. I used to live there.

Feel free to copy this paragraph in any emails or IM exchanges where people seem to be confused. Look for a deeper explainer of each and every North Carolinian region in the future.
