I think it's safe to say that one of the biggest shocks to the system that one person could ever experience is moving to New Jersey from any other state.

Picture this: you live in, say, Iowa.

The biggest city there is home to about 200,000 people. In your world, that's a huge town.

There, a "traffic jam" might be sitting at a red light through two or three cycles before you can get through an intersection -- or maybe you get stuck behind a dreaded slow-moving tractor. The agony!
