Leaf I live in Middle Earth

I'm sure I'm not the only one who tends to superimpose Middle Earth on his/her surroundings...

NYC = Mordor + Gondor.

Some very Barrow-Downs like structures can be found in a park in Buffalo, except instead of wights, they contain garbage.

Ithaca, I think, makes a nice Rivendell, and the general central finger lakes region is the Shire. The Misty Mountains & Fangorn would both be Adirondack-ish...
and the Gray Havens were temporarily located in Rochester (while the fast ferry lasted) - which, I suppose, makes Canada the Undying Lands.

EDIT - Why, oh why, do I always have to be the first to post on a new page? It's a curse, I tell you!

Ooh, how did I miss this? It's so true.

I usually sneer a little at t-shirts with overplayed logos, but I'll never get sick of 'Ithaca is Gorges,' nor will I become bored with places like Buttermilk Falls and that fantastic bridge over the gorge alongside the Cornell art museum. *melt*

Ithaca is one of the few places in Upstate that I actively like. Watkins Glen is similar in geographical spirit. I absolutely love driving along and seeing unexpected tall waterfalls coming over the edge of cliff faces. Pretty, pretty.

yes, there is...
I live in the north-west so we have a pretty well developed wine culture here as well, but further south you've got much much more beer
Guess Scotland isn't so bad either. I remember visiting Glenfiddich, that was nice

Well, if you like good beer, I'd direct you right to my homeland, which is Czech republic, city Prague... it's not much far from Germany, you can visit both countries at once, if you happen to go our direction

I love that city!
I was there twice or so, it's awesome, really medieval, but a lot of cool modern stuff

Thumbs up

Yes, I consider Prague a nice city (even though I live here all my life ) Okay, it starts to be a little off-topic, since we were meant just to introduce ourselves here... so, just... if any of you really were longing to see Prague...

I have question E for you. It stands as: what in the name of Odin is cowtipping?

I'm not making fun of you, honest, so pardon my ignorance if it's something very obvious

That would require a lot of physical force I imagine, and would strain one's back for sure too. I guess I'd settle for some quiter hobbitish type of sports (throwing things, like) if ever in the country

Cowtipping is awesome!

.... Well, I've never really done it, as it sounds stupid, and I don't think my neighbors would like it, and I don't have any cows at present, so.... no cowtipping for me! It also is probably rather dangerous...

But yes, we have had people ask us if we've been cowtipping.

And I live precisely where my location says I live, so I see no reason to further explain.

Plenty of cows around here, but it's been ages since anyone tried cowtipping in this area. That's more of a "rural college town with bored fraternity members" kind of thing.

Well, that's not terribly far off. My family is largely of Polish/Russian/Ukrainian heritage. My screen name here looks a lot like some of my relatives' surnames. When people ask things like, "what's your mother's maiden name?" you say it and start spelling before they even ask. And they still look at you like you just sprouted mushrooms in your nostrils.

Prexactly. And I'm sure if you tried it, you would probably understand how bored (or drunk, as Ibrin suggested hehe) you would have to be to gain amusement from that.

I'm actually from a small college town with bored fraternity boys. Fortunately, they don't go to my even smaller hometown to amuse themselves. That could be quite interesting.


Sidenote. Phantom, I didn't know you were from Omaha? Fascinating. I went up to Papillion a few months ago for a concert, and my step-brother goes to college up there, but that's not worth more than a mention. Are you too cursing the weather, or are you far enough from the Lincon/Crete area that you've escaped the nastiness?

Michty, er, The Might. You've been to Aberdeen? And Glenfiddich? My mother worked there when she was a teenager! You probably walked past me in the street once, not noticing me because you were too busy staring in awe at the majestic city.

Yep, two nights ago on our ranch. We saw some of the neighbors kids were doing it while my brother and I were making the night rounds.

Gwathagor is from Newberg, Oregon. He frequently revels in the fact that his state is better than all others and laughs at people who disagree because they are invariably the people who have never been to Oregon for any serious length of time.

Woah...dude...you're really, super claiming a lot. I personally vouch that my own state is the best. And if I didn't live here, I'd live in Kentucky. Why on earth do you claim that Oregon is the best state?
