Victoria, British Columbia. And because it's not like Ontario and many other parts of Canada, the summers are warm to hot, but not muggy, and the winters are relatively mild (rarely below 0 degrees Celsius, kind of rainy, occasionally sunny).

Las Cruces, New Mexico the most boring place ever. Its a place that forces you to entertain yourself, and that helps develop, imagination, individuality and an extreme sense of psychosis.

I am the way into the doleful city
I am the way into eternal grief,
I am the way to a foresaken race.
Justice it was that moved my great creator;
Divine omnipotence created me,
And highest wisdom joined with primal love.
Before me nothing but eternal things
Were made, and I shall last eternally
Abandon all hope, all you who enter.

I live in Ennepetal, Germany. I think nobody of you will know this 35,000 inhabitants city.
It is in Nordrheinwestfalen (Northrhinewestfalia?) near the Ruhrgebiet (Ruhrarea?) in the west of Germany.

I live in Turku, Finland. Based on the description, the weather here seems to be more or less the same as where Rosycat lives.

The temperature was about -7 °C today and there's some snow on the street. And some ice bears. :)

EDIT: POLAR bears! English is sure difficult.

The idyllic city of Lovisa. The word 'idyllic' should never be left unmentioned in this context. We're in the middle of a brainwashing campaign. Lovisa is a dying town and we should always keep luring new people here. Don't think you're going to stop me this time, either.

The city arms. There should be a 'count-crown' on the top, too. The cannons symbolize Lovisa's importance as a (former) bordertown. The anchor symbolizes our (former) importance as a notable harbour.

And, Lovisa is the home of Finland's first nuclear power plant! Where I, coincidentially, work! Half of Lovisa does.

That looks more idyllic than Duisburg, certainly. The dying town where I semi-live (I return on week-ends) forced not into the role of an 'idyllic village', but instead (unsuccessfully) tried by the city council to transform into a 'cosmopolitan metropolis'.

Which in common terms means they borrow money and plan huge buildings with it to attract multinational companies and tourists. They built a musical (Les Miserables, which in fact is uncannily apt here), right next to the red-light district, but it didn't attract any tourists (if you can visit Cologne, Duesseldorf and Aachen, whoever would go to stinky Duisburg?)

That's what happens when a city's industry is based on steel-making. When the coal runs out, you're screwed. ;)

Tampere, Finland.

Damn you, Swedes. They made a program about Finland and sold it to BBC. In it they claimed that Finns live in iglus and have polar bears roaming the streets.

I'm not bitter or anything, but one of these days I will surely...

Polar bears are good for the business. They attract stupid Englishmen. And more importantly, stupid Germans.

No offence, Englishers and Germans. We really like you. In fact, why don't you come to Finland and take a look at our awesome polar bears?

I'm from Oak Park, Illinois, right next to Chicago. From my house, it's about a fifteen minute drive to downtown Chicago. The town is perhaps most famous for being the birthplace of Ernest Hemingway.

I'm in my third year of school at the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois. Just got back here after a weeklong Thanksgiving break in Oak Park.

It's not pop. >_<

Question- Who here calls it just plain soda?

Or better yet, who here calls a "water fountain" a "bubbler"?

Yeah, that's right. Milwaukeean as always.

Over here, people say sangwich instead of sandwich. And a lot of double negatives. And weird stresses on certain parts of a sentance.

Very few people. Really, how does this one even make sense? :P
