What country do you live in?

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
Okay - I just moved to India last month and am finally back on-line. This got me to thinking - where is everyone at AI posting from. Clearly most people are posting from the States, but this is an international forum so here goes:



Gobble Gobble - India

Jamie - Scotland

Powerdoc - France

Anders - Denmark

PCKilla - Israel

Mullatabianca - Italy

Lots of peps - America



Anyone from Africa or South America?



note: while I allegedly have broadband access here in India, it's only equivalent to 64K. And there's no cable modem, just a cable line running up to the roof and off to the street. Go figure. Anyway, if there's already been a similar thread then pardon me since I've been offline for two months and lack the connection speed to do power searches of AI.



note2: Texas is not a country (but I'm counting Scotland) despite what Groverat may say.

    As seen in me profile I live in Denmark. Born in Iceland but been living here for ages. Wouldn't it be nice if people started filling out their profiles correctly so we actually could see where people are from. no?

    i live in New Mexico...most people in "the States" think it is a forgein country...asking me, "do i need a passport to visit you?", "do i need to send letters by international mail?", "do they speak English down there?", "i'm sorry sir, but we don't rent cars that go out of the country"....gets quite funny sometimes....jeez, it's only been a state for almost 100 years....we definately need more geography classes....g

    It's part of their ad campaign to attract tourists... you know, come see the NEW Mexico!



    And for shame, gooble! Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put!
