The All New, 2011 (almost) Where Are You From? Thread

Okay.....listen up.

We've gotten many new members in the last year. I thought it would be fun to see where are members are posting from.

I've changed some options, and put them in alphabetical order.

For this polls sake, please post where you currently live now.

Remember, the poll only allows 30 options, max, and I believe we have two to play with.

As always, posts and suggestions are welcome.

*edit........because of adding and re-arranging certain countries, all are no longer in alphabetical order.

Just look for it......

Canada (both sides!)

Is there a good side and a bad side?



And I'm from the planet Trantor in the Galactic Center. It's a whole world covered in a metal building. How could you leave that one out?

I'll just post that where I live now, Erewhon.

What! That's not there either? And to think that I thought that you were a nice person!

There seems to be a 'divide' between some English speaking and French speaking peoples of Canada.

I did not want to divide the country any further......thats all!

Sorry about leaving yours out.......next week?

Trantor - Wiki

"Trantor is depicted as the capital of the first Galactic Empire. Its land surface of 194,000,000 km² (75,000,000 miles², 130% of Earth land area)[2] was, with the exception of the Imperial Palace[3], entirely enclosed in artificial domes."

I lived 3 levels down and a short distance (spinward) from The Imperial Palace.

And Trantor is still not on your list!. I'M WAITING.

Never mind, I'll settle for अमेरिका के संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका as where I live now. (Forget Klingon, I like Hindi better)

Hey, Where's New Zealand on that list!!!

You specifically told us NOT to select Australia (thanks for not lumping us all together ) but then didn't give us our own option...
