Where are you from!? Fun Fact?

Postby thebluejester » Sat Oct 22, 2016 2:56 am

Hi all!

I was wondering what the demographic of 001 users is like, just for fun.
What country, state, even town are you from? Give us a FUN FACT about where you're from?

I assume most people are from the USA?

I'm based in Australia, Queensland, Gladstone at the moment.
Do we have other Australian's? :P

There was a girl from Wisconsin in one of my Lab group's at Uni. She said all you need to know about Wisconsin is cheese. Hahaha.

I think I did notice GamerDude was from Australia at one point. Cool to have a 001 support member from here :D

Indeed it is. It's own little island. Cute!
(I looked it up :P)
I had a friend who did a six months exchange to Canada, she didn't shut up about how amazing Canada was for like, 2 years!

So I added to the original post that people should comment with a fun fact about their town/area.

So in Gladstone they did some dredging of the sea floor, kicked up some ancient disease that killed heaps of fish and then when dormant again. No one knows exactly what was unleashed. Creepy! :P (I'm a biologist, so I can't help but find it the most interesting thing about town).

Here in Brazil exists a large religious statue...
They say the feminist group "FEMEN" born in the "Ukraine", already tried to do a graffiti in the statue with his Brazilian members. :lol:
Looks like that the "FEMEN" is weak here. :(

I'm from Alberta in Canada. Something interesting about alberta? Uhh, I guess we are known for our beef.

And the Calgary stampede, which I personally don't care about but is a big thing :p

Alberta also houses one of the biggest dinosaur skeleton exhibits located in drumheller, called the royal tyrrell museum, which I've been to once, so many years ago that I can't remember anything xD

Perth is the furthest city from one of my local cities(Virginia Beach). I've got a buddy named Marko that lives there who drives for a living and the pictures he posted of Perth were absolutely gorgeous!

I'm from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia in the US. It's comprised of 7 fairly large(population-wise) cities, and most people that live here bounce between all of the cities so it's kind of silly to claim you are from a specific one, unless you are talking to a local. Hampton Roads borders Jamestown in Williamsburg, which is the original settlement in the US, so it's basically the birthplace of the nation. Needless to say, there's a lot of history here. The area was developed by George Washington himself, many key battles were fought here in the American revolutionary and civil wars, at one point we were the capitol of the Confederacy, many presidents have lived and died here, etc. We've got Busch Gardens, a second-rate beach/tourist trap, and the worlds largest naval base. My favorite factoid is my house is located basically right where the late actor James Avery was born. He played Uncle Phil on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. There are actually TONS of celebrities from this area. The local population is extremely diverse, but tends to be a little racially clustered partially due to the historic nature of the place.

Coachella, CA...for about one more week, then moving a few cities over.

Fun Facts...let's see...most people know Coachella for the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival (aka Coachella Fest). However, it does not actually happen in the city of Coachella. Those living the US may have heard about California being in the worst drought in recorded history, however we here in the Coachella Valley are actually the only place in the state that has an overabundance of water due to good planning. We also pay the strictest fines due to all the golf courses and the billionaires living here who don't give a damn. Despite living in SoCal, I do not go to the beach every weekend, nor Disneyland every weekend, nor do I run across movie stars all the time. I have, however, worked for people that make most A-List actors look like beggers on the streets. For example, one of my former clients has two $2.5million Bugatti Supercars here for his winter home, and a Bentley is considered a poor-man's car.

Should give you an idea of the type of people who live in the area.
There was a website here. It's gone now.

I've been to Perth before and I was surprised by the amount of sand, hahaha. It was nice enough to visit, but it is so far away from the other capital cities! East coast represent! :P

I'm from the Seattle, Washington, USA region. Is it necessary I share something? I don't think there's anything that the world does not yet know about Seattle... (Thank you Bill Gates).

Little bitty town of Fraser, CO up on a mountain.. Drowning in snow.

Fun Facts, I guess I have some of those
1) I believe we hold the title Icebox of the Nation? Or something? For hitting temperatures of a delicious -40F
2) A guy in the town 15 miles from here once (Like 10 years ago ish?) built a steel shell and encased himself inside a bulldozer and went on a crazy rampage and destroyed the town
