The fact that everything is 5 min away driving distance from my apartment. And when I say everything I mean the following: Mall, Movie Theater, CHIPOTLE!, Walmart, Super Target ( I get the best of both worlds with a super target and a walmart that are both in walking distance), an assload of 7-11's, Best Buy with Ipads to play with, a lot of variety in resturants, some of the best places for wings, both of my best friends live in my neighborhood, my gf lives in the neighborhood down the street, and my school is also 5 min. away whoo that was a lot
At one point during the late nineties, we held the record (according to NPR) for most amount of bars per capita. That's not saying much when you only have about a thousand people, but it's one of the few notable things about this place.
Oh, and the original Face from A-Team (and the original Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica) is originally from this area and went to school with my grandmother. Met him once - very nice guy.
oh and i'm sure the North East isn't alone in this but i'll say it anyways...four seasons bitches.
@one_2nd: dude if anything, Wu-Tang is pretty fucking cool coming out of Staten Island. i think all of New York can boast of their awesome Hip-Hop scene.
The manager of Dunfermline Athletic football (soccer w/e) club used to live a few doors down from me.
Also Kevin Mckidd's children used to go to the local primary school, my mum used to speak to him in the mornings. Some of you may know him from the TV series Rome or Greys Anatomy.
OMG, what the hell. You live near Mushaboom? My family is from Sheet Harbour.
What is the one thing that makes the area you live in cool?
Local celebrities, unusual things, tourist attractions, etc.
The coolest thing about where I live is that Fiest (a famous Canadian singer) wrote a song about the area. The song is called Mushaboom.
On topic - well I live by the water so there are some really beautiful cliffs and beaches that no one knows about. It's just a very serene and peaceful area.
I live near a river, a powerstation, a word-heritage rainforest, a sugarcane field, a caravan park, many suburbs, waterfalls, mountain trains, and a tropical city with luxury yachts and hotels going along the esplanade (the only pretty face on the small city). I think the cool thing would have to be the deadly rapids on the river that you can go rafting on; not the ski park/ bungee tower / motorbike courses. Somebody other than me should start a thread about what are the most dangerous animals living near your house; because I have got Taipans & Salt Water Crocodiles (that go upstream into fresh water - the bastards!).
I'm about an hour away from fresno and this man speaks the truth. Just the middle of california is know for meth. Just the merced county in general is terrible...
" Fresno. Was named the Drunkest City in America. Is also called the armpit of California. And is the meth capitol of the world basically. So glad I'm moving to Santa Barbara for school in a few weeks. :) "
So yes I'm saying the coolest thing about where i live is that there is a shit load of meth. Also our cops are actually pretty chill, they generally leave you alone no matter how late or what your doing. And lets not forget, we get alot of northern humbult (sp) weed....
i live in a shit hole with nothing to do but drugs...
Moscow has the best fucking Metro system in the world. Seriously, fuck the Kremliln and all those other bullshit tourist traps - take a trip around any of the various stations (about 180 of them and counting), because they're full of chandeliers, mosaics, statues, and a host of other crap. Some pics
Plus you'll see complete psychopaths as well riding the trains, which is always fun.
