    The U.S. now, but here are a few other places I've lived...

    France (born)

    Japan (2yrs)

    Italy (2 1/2yrs)

    Germany (4 1/2yrs)

    Egypt (1/2yr)


    (Don't know if that last should really count though, since I was there on a peacekeeping mission.)

    Samnell & Tsyr,

    First off, it's yooper, not uper.

    Secondly, I fail to see how living in Alpena (or anywhere in northern lower Michigan, but especially Alpena ) is better than being a yooper.

    In addition to what Abraxas has noted, the U.P. has an Olympic Training center (@NMU, in Marquette). It is also home to the largest discovered living organism in the world. -- Some fungus that lives underground -- stretches for hundreds of miles..... seriously. Finally, it is home to my alma mater (& Abraxas') Michigan Tech --- woohoo! The school that, legend has it, in one year's edition of Playboy's party school rankings, was listed as: "disqualified, because this list is for amateurs" (man, what a run-on sentance)

    Actually, I love living in west Michigan, but the U.P. was a wonderful place to grow up. I was an inner city youth, I lived just 1 block from the stoplight.

    Vienna, Austria.

    Somehow, Austria manages to be counted as Western Europe. How is beyond me, though.
    (But I still voted Western Europe. )

    Copenhagen, Denmark

    Which means I voted 'Western Europe' (sigh).
    Oh, well. "Somethings rotten..." and all that, greetings to all you Swedes and Norvegians in here.

    17 great british, 67 western europeans, 2 eastern europeans (for now). That's 86 europeans.

    I wonder why Morrus separated the UK from the rest of Europe. I can see two explanations:

    • By curiosity, he wanted to know how many of his fellow compatriots are on his boards;
    • British people don't consider themselves europeans;
    • Both of the above.

    I'm terribly disappointed that you didn't see fit to give Singapore its own box to check.

    Just because it is a paltry and insignificant nation which is a world leader in absolutely nothing doesn't mean that you have to ignore it completely.

    After all, without Singapore, Indonesia would probably be a prosperous nation as there would have been no way for Suharto and his cronies to launder their ill-gotten gains. In addition, smuggling from Indonesia and Malaysia could never take place without the, ahem, value-added services that the Singapore port provides.

    Actually, I think it really is a Zhentarim outpost....

    More likely the Red Wizards, I'd say, judging by their new 3E writeup.

    There was a peacekeeping force in Egypt?

    Still is ...

    The Multi-National Force & Observers (MFO) in the Sinai. The arrangement goes back to the Camp David Peace Accord. The force records and reports any treaty violations, and basically acts as a buffer between Israel and Egypt. When you hear about the leaders of these two countries meeting in Sharm El'Sheik, this is the place.
