I'm looking at a few places, please help me decide
Planning on listing the options? Otherwise that's a pretty open-ended question, and if you weren't the admin around here, I'd be writing the very first response that jumped to mind. :rofl:
New Yawk. But you'll probably end up some place warmer like Hawaii or Fiji
lol, omg that was fast, I hadn't even posted the poll yet and you replied!
I've been to NY already
LOL! I guess I was a bit impatient there. Maybe when someone is creating a poll, something indicating poll under construction or something would be useful to see so us impatient folks know to wait.
You've got some great places on that list! I can't decide, they all sound great! Whatever you pick, can I go with you? All places I'd love to visit!
Sorry for being rude,but
AMSTERDAM IS NOT IN GERMANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :grumpy:
And yes,you should go to Maui... :tongue2:
Dang it, why did you tell him, i was hoping we'd get him too germany where he'd look and look, but never find amsterdam, greatest PF prank ever. But no, you ruined it.
you are right, but this is dexter's "great" sense of humour
Greg, go to Amsterdam in Germany...lot's of good food, beautiful girls, free entrance everywhere and the best booze in the world. This is the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty. take me down there........
Sorry,but eventually someone else would have found it outrageous,just as i did and probably would have told him the bad news... :tongue2:
Besides,to me,geography is the most important thing i know...I know geography far better than physics...
You know, despite the pattern of City, State/Country in all the other choices, for some reason, I just read that choice as Amsterdam/Germany, meaning visit Amsterdam and Germany. I hope that's what it meant anyway.
Oh, I would LOVE to have seen what would have happened if we had sent Greg to Amsterdam in Germany! I think that one of two scenarios would have played out:
1. Greg never finds Amsterdam, and he keeps posting at PF for directions.
2. Greg tries to play it off all cool like he found Amsterdam in Germany and tells us about what a blast it was.
Either way, that's priceless comedy! :rofl:
Thanks a lot, dexter!!!
PS: Greg, go to Hawaii. You look a little pasty in your pictures, and you could use some sun.
Thats like justifying murder by saying that the victim would have died eventually anyway.
I voted for Amsterdam, Germany. The Amsterdam in the Netherlands is way over rated.
AMEN TO THAT
Hey I'm a dumb american college student remember, I can still get to make these kinds of mistakes
Maui is in the United States.
Hey, all the other places listed the country rather than the state or province, and you did mislocate Amsterdam, so we assume nothing! :rofl:
Yeah, Greg would have been looking for Amsterdam a long time.
But, don't feel too bad. Me and a few other folks once started driving for Mt Etna about 10 miles away. An hour later were only 12 miles away from the mountain and finally stopped and asked for directions - kind of interesting since we couldn't speak Italian and they couldn't speak English, but I kind of got the gist and their directions got us there.
The signs confused us. The arrows didn't mean turn left or right. It meant if you wanted to go up highway 66, drive between the arrows (one on either side with the route number above each).
"Turn left here."
(Driver turns left)
"Hey, that sign says we should have turned right!"
"Well, duh! Most roads go both ways, don't they?"
Fifteen minutes later:
"You'd think they'd repeat the sign once in a while just so you can make sure you're still going the right way."
"You sure we are still going the right way?"
"Of course, you haven't seen any signs telling us to turn, have you?"
I lived in Hawaii for 4 years. Your money is better spent elsewhere. The Big Island, Oahu, Kauai, Maui are well travelled by EVERYONE. It's very rare that you can find a place to go that would provide an experience that lives up to the mystique. If I were ever to go back it would be during the rainy season, Dec-Feb, and it would be to a botanical garden on the Big Island unless the volcano was splodin' and then I'd chunk a virgin in just for gp.
As I can't leave any alternative hypothesis unstated, there is a third possibility: there might be AN Amsterdam in Germany, and when Greg arrived in the middle of some obscure town where cow tipping is considered exciting nightlife, well, I can only hope someone is hiding behind the trees with a camera to catch the expression on his face.
What the hell kind of college student has enough money to travel abroad? Every trip I ever took in college was limited by the hometowns of people who were staying in my dorm. I'd trade my car and gasoline for their willingness to drive while me and my buddy got drunk in the backseat. Then they had to put us up at their house for the weekend.
Is this how you talk? I would have said: there might BE an Amsterdam in Germany. I don't know what a Cincinatti accent sounds like.
In light of your geographical skills, if you are currently in the USA and are planning to drive to your destination, choose Vancouver, Canada.
Have you ever been to Ireland? Great place to visit.
All your choices are good, but they only make you happy for a little while. I suggest vacationing here, in Arizona this summer. Nothing will make you happier than knowing you don't have to live in this heat.
My grandma used to live in Yuma, AZ. OMG we went down there one summer, and wow, it was easily 105, maybe even 110. Any time I ever think it is too hot, I just think about how hot it was there.
