    You live like 5 seconds away from me, lol...but your parents would seriously ban you from the internet just because you mentioned that you live in Bloomington? That sucks man, I've gotten a couple things shipped to me from people over at EOCF.

    Jersey, Channel Islands

    Small island nearer to france than the UK.

    Its supposed to be tax free here

    Ha ha ha ha

    No VAT but freight costs make nearly everything more expensive.

    Houses are dearest in most of UK

    But being an Island 9x5 miles at widest bits we have little serious crime.
    Nice place to live and bring up kids.

    This is one of the major problems in the US:

    Most people in this country live "near" somewhere! No one lives in somewhere! You say you are from Chacigo, Dallas, Alanta etc., but you really live in some suburb that no one has heard of (except those in that area), but you still will say the major city when someone asks!

    To put it another way, suburbian sprawl goes on and the central cities die because of it. Rob Peter to pay Paul, take from the poor and give to the rich, etc.

    Our cities are sinking (most of them), but suburbia keeps on growing!

    Boy you got that right....I always say I live in Montreal, but I don't actually...I live in the 'burbs....and guess what? Montreal, bankrupt, has just created a huge storm by amalgamating all of the suburbs into the city proper "so we can all be one huge happy family of well adjusted poor people!" LOL....I used to live in a great City. What they needed to do was break up Montreal and portion it out to the suburbs...voila! problem solved. A smaller city core with a prosperous satellite around it to spread out the taxes on taxes on taxes....we are the most highly taxes Province on the entire Northern Hemisphere....I subject! LOL I'll never be a "Montrealer"....

    Well, I'm late to the thread, but I'm in Jefferson City, Missouri, USA. (state capitol. Politicians. Just slightly worse than $LUsers) 1.5 hours from Poertner, SNGX1275. Close enough that Papa darn well better look me up when he hollers at SN.

    Anyone who's gonna be in the state can holler at me, I'm always up for a road trip, save to the bootheel. Don't wanna get too close to Arkansas. ;) (j/k)
