Portugal.
Rings a bell?
We discovered Brazil,Afrika and half of India.

I'm half-Portuguese and it's pretty annoying that the only thing the majority of the world knows about us is our style of preparing chicken. And soccer.

I, on the other hand, come from the greatest country on Earth: America.

America: Land of the Free, Home of the Free

Billy vs. Tree – The epic struggle of boy versus tree.
Sonic Colores – It looks like it's going to be a good game because I love how the way it makes me grow.

Wyoming and Colorado are almost square o__O
Most of the US west of the Mississippi was mapped out according to latitude and longitude lines, so that's why they're all squarish. Idaho/Montana has a wiggly border but that's because there's a mountain range there. It's interesting to fly over the middle states because it was parceled out to homesteaders in squares, too. Like flying over a patchwork quilt. :)

ANOTHER AUSTINITE! AMANDA, GRAB HIM!

I'll get his legs!

Oh no! They've caught me! Help, they're grabbing my legs!…

On second thought, I'm kinda enjoying this. :)

*grabs ropes*

Okay, I'll tie him up. Are there any more Texans out there?

Note to everyone else: Maybe it's not a smart idea to admit you live in Texas with Amanda or me. We're not very nice… unless you like ropes.

Heh, fair enough, Ozone. I'm from the United States! As a bit of trivia, I read that when Americans go overseas, and someone asks where they're from, they say “from America” or “from the US” or something. Unless they're from Texas. Then the majority forego the country completely and just say “Texas.” ^.^

i don't do that . every time i have to give a speech or address a large crowd of people i just say the name of the city i came from, and it's not a large city either , let em google it if they really care that much

I also live in Virginia. But in the part that is furthest from anyone else on here probably. =P

you know why birds don't write their memoirs? because birds don't lead epic lives, that's why. who'd want to read what a bird does? nobody. that's who.

I was born in Germany (Wiesbaden, specifically) but I consider myself a New York native; I grew up in New York, so I talk an act more like a New Yorker than a German. I still claim a German nationality though; so I'm… more like a German Yank or something :D

The mysterious, misty Mountains of Kentucky. We eat Bambi's and all sorts of 4 legged critters. The Hills DEFINATELY have eyes…….little beedy ones. (But surprisingly, Denny's is a popular hotspot with the hill folk….Never woulda' guessed they knew how to use them “forks and fancy folded napkins”….)

High crime? Hhhmmm. My guess either A.C., Millville or Bridgeton?

I'm from Puerto Rico, but we moved to the US. I lived in PR for eleven years and never even knew racism existed until we moved to the States. We got scared into the corner (Florida) and we've lived there ever since. :)

Uhhh…sadly, the United States is VERY racist. I'm just glad more enlightened and higher evolved beings like ourselves are able to meet and greet on the internet.

I feel so alone in the waste lands of Las Vegas Nevada….. I grew up in the San Fernando valley of Southern California, and hung out in Burbank land of cartoons. California people sure are thier own breed.

oh wow.

Am I the only one who lives in a 3rd world country here? lol

I'm from the Philippines (yes, the one with Al-Queda wannabee terrorists and corrupted government, yes). -w-)/

My country sucks. I'm not being a ‘really’ pessimistic person here but it just does. -A-)v

Everyday I'd see these kinds of things…. People doing cons and scams each day. Seeing beggars and children being wasted away by the harsh cruel world. Ah~ the drama.

But it's okay. Even if my country (and government *cough*) seriously SUCKS, the people always manages to smile. Which is weird because of the reasons I wrote above. Maybe we're just a very tenacious race who's already used in going through hardships and obstacles in life.


hmm…

I guess I still love my shitty country after all. v(owO)v
