hm, something cool about my city, let me think...

i live in gouda (the netherlands). yes, the city where the gouda cheese comes from. we actually have a weekly cheese market during the summer, it's sick. it looks like this:



so yeah, it's a pretty boring town.

Do they only sell Gouda?
I mean, I orgasm at the taste of it as much as the next guy؟ but would that not get rather boring? Do you hate gouda at this stage?

Anyway, you're just walking around with these teeth in your vagina and you think it's normal cos like, who do you ask about that shit? Then, one day you go to have sex with someone & they're all "WHY DOES YOUR VAGINA HAVE A TOOTH IN IT?" That'd be damn awkward.

haha i actually have no idea, i've never been to the cheese market. the tourists love it though. but yeah i still like gouda cheese, but that's probably just because i don't eat it often and i try to ignore the cheese events in gouda :P

I live in Somerville.  Super close to Boston, fluff was invented here.  If you haven't tried fluff you haven't lived!  Mountains and ocean all in short driving distance.  I quite like it.
YOU ARE FROM MY HOMETOWN.  POST MORE OFTEN.  I LOVE YOU.

Whenever there's a tsunami warning, people do one of three things:
a) continue about their daily business
B) flock to the beach
c) flock to higher ground with a good view of the ocean.


Also, from anywhere in the North Island, it's about a 5 hour drive to the closest ski field.

I live in Milwaukee, WI. There are exactly 3 interesting/cool things about Milwaukee, WI.

1. Jeffrey Dahmer. Duh.

2. The Violent Femmes.

3. Someone tried to assassinate Teddy Roosevelt here, and shot him in the shoulder or something and he went on to give a 90 minute speech before getting medical attention because "if i'm not coughing blood my life's not in danger" though I guess really that's more something that's cool about Teddy than something that's cool about Milwaukee.

Dundee is supposed to be home to the best worst poet ever. It's the "City of Discovery" though I'm not sure why. Dundee is the home of Desperate Dan (from the comics!). There is a monument that stands on top of what used to be a volcano (many thousands of years ago) and it's 500m above sea level. The railway bridge collapsed in the 1870s sometime and had to be rebuilt (obviously). The ship that Captain Scott sailed across the Antarctic with was built here and it sits in the harbour.

It's actually a pretty interesting place, history-wise.

Miller Park, helloooooo.....   :knuppel2:
(Best ballpark I've been in...  although I'll admit I've only been in a very few...)

I've been to Milwaukee a couple times, and found it very pleasant, and warmer than Chicago.
Maybe I shouldn't visit that part of the country in January...  ya think?

Hmm is there anything cool about St Andrews, Scotland?

We have golf, but that's not very cool.
