Latest post of the previous page:

A Texan until age 28, then a New Yorker (City, that is), and back to Texan at age 32 to present (33). I carry both nationalities around with me in a box.

If the government would have me, I'd move to the UK, but I don't possess any skills they want. Had a blast on a trip from London to York to Edinburgh to Salisbury and back in '99, and haven't quite fallen out of love with the island. Edinburgh would be great, if I could buy enough heavy waterproof coats...

i live in west shropshire in engand, in a place with a welsh name. people here have welsh names and share the physiclal charecteristics of the midwalians a mile or two away. yet they consider themselves to be english. and, of course they are.

if there was ever a God, here would have been his country.

I live in Scotland, in a small town called Bathgate in West Lothian. It is fun, if hairdressers, charity shops and cafes are your thing. Originally from East Kilbride though, moved here 2 years ago.

I live in New Mexico, which sadly enough I often have to clarify IS part of the United States.

If a certain portion of my fellow residents had their way, Texas would be its own country again. Then, after we'd built a wall around the entire perimeter of the state to keep the furriners out, we'd invade Cuba and corner the cigar market until our lord & saviour comes back.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

While I'm happy living in Southern California, I was just as surprised as Xman was that Canada was included with the U.S. As I see it, that's a nice upgrade for the U.S. but a downgrade for Canada. Hell, there are times when I'm disturbed that as a Californian, I have to say it's in the (rest of the) U.S. :hilarity:

I noticed that fullerwiser suggested that Texas become its own country and build a wall around it to keep "furriners" out. I just wanted to say that I'd be quite happy to contribute to the fund to build that wall, however, I'd request that it also keep Texans IN. :hilarity:

I believe you'll find that I suggested no such thing. I'm merely reporting on the activities of some of my fellow residents, many of whom I'd gladly turn over to Oklahoma...

You're right, and I apologize. I saw your avatar and just jumped to that conclusion without reading carefully. Sorry.

Nah, we Americans tend to like to fight people from countries with smaller militaries than ours. Not that it's proved terribly effective...

I'll be at the Buffalos opener in September, and 'our' tailgate parties are humungous I hasten to add. Fancy a two day alcoho' ride? Well it feels like two days, as I'm sure you'll know what I mean.

But before I reply to where I live, as if it hasn't been discerned before, I would like to invite all of you to that 'day' if you faintly resemble a football fan. The money is paid up front by us, so just pop by the South Western entrance (Specifics furbished if you PM) at about 0800 and you will get the greatest 'Bloody Mary' you can imagine.

But 'oh no', I live in the greatest wealth trap imagineable...right under one of the flight paths of London Heathrow, 3 and one 1/2 miles from 'our' queen.
