Interesting poll, and thanks for making me feel isolated.
And as far as knowing the world, I don't know jack about it, cause I was born into a lower caste (and shall possibly remain there at this rate.) If I were wealthier, I would not have roots at all, but wander country to country like a nomad, sucking in all I can, all the while wondering what the hell everyone is saying because English is all I know.
I have been to Australia, lived in it for a year or so actually, and what a GREAT country!! I might actually prefer it to the States, except I'd have to start diving and drop skiing....
But then again, I have not been to all the places on my list of places to go: Most of Europe, China, Iceland, McMurdo Station.....and I bet they would kick ass, too.
One thing I have noticed is that people from the USA think that this is the greatest place on the planet. Well, it's nice, I'll give you that, and the people who say that are the ones who have rarely ventured out of their home state.
: But there is so much out there just as nice, and perhaps before I check out and scatter my atoms throughout the universe, I will actually see some of those other places.
Now about your posts. I actually enjoy them. I read most of them, except for the ones in French, duh. Carry on.
Egad, I have fed your ego. However will you manage to leave your room?
