Title: Region Roll Call
Post by: CrazyWelshy on 02 May 2013, 12:09
Seeing as there is an Age Roll Call here, I got curious.  Where are you guys from?

This is the region map I used:
(http://www.eoearth.org/files/122201_122300/122250/400px-World_Regional_map.jpg)

I'm from
Western Europe,
UK,
Wales,
Carmarthenshire.

If there is a topic like this already, may as well close this.

EDIT:  I'm hoping if there are enough West Europe members, we could get merchandise shipped/sourced over here too?  :-D  Shipping costs are barbaric...

On a related note, why are postal addresses always given from the most specific part to the least specific part?
Title: Re: Region Roll Call
Post by: Loki on 02 May 2013, 13:41
Not always. Germany has

Firstname Lastname
Streetname Housenumber
ZIPcode CityName

Sometimes D, A or CH (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_international_vehicle_registration_codes) goes in front of the ZIP, but I am not sure when it's required or if it's an old people thing.

That's more sensible than a UK address, though you still run into the issue of not knowing which city the street is in until you read the rest of the address.

The railroad, real and Monopoly, and the cities in Pennsylvania and the UK, other places too, are pronounced RED-ing.
My yard has a bunch of direction signs on a 4x4. The original three are Reading PA, 479 miles; Redding CA 1,800, Reading MI, 3.5. My mom gave us part of the cost of the original A-frame cottage in 1987, at a time when she lived near Redding. The sign started out as a reading joke.

I recall reading about the Schleswig-Holstein Question in a history course. I've never looked into it, but I think it's connected with the reason my great-great-grandfather deserted from the Danish army in the early 1860s, eventually to become a tower clock builder in Manistee Michigan. And it's behind the second of the very funny Flashman historical novels, Royal Flash.
Title: Re: Region Roll Call
Post by: ankhtahr on 09 May 2013, 20:28
Schleswig-Holstein and the Danish still have some kind of a special relationship. In the Schleswig-Holstein state parliament (Landtag) the party of the Danish minority is still unaffected by the usual 5 percent rule. Usually parties can only become members of the parliament, if they can gather over 5 percent of all votes. The SSW (Südschleswigs Wählerverband/Sydslesvigsk Vælgerforening) is not affected by this.

There's still the myth of when the referendum about which parts of Schleswig-Holstein to become Danish was held, the majority for become German was only by one vote.

Come to think of it, why do English speakers use "from" in reference to someone's home? Logically "from" should mean your next-to-last location.

I beg to disagree. You can define the relation "X is from Y" as equivalent to "Y is the initial location of X".

By the way, not only English speakers do that, German does this too.

Come to think of it, why do English speakers use "from" in reference to someone's home? Logically "from" should mean your next-to-last location.

From suggests a spacial relationship, but has no implication of time - that is added by other words.  Thus:

Where have you come from? [just now]
Where did you come from? [also just now]
Where do you come from? [originally]
Where are you from? [also originally]

The key thing seems to be the tense of the verb; using the present talks about a continuing property that you have - your origin - whereas using the past indicates somewhere you have been but are no longer are - where you last were.

That is where I'm from, too! I moved south to go to university, but I love coming home again during the summer. I mean, most people (in Germany - possibly different in places like Australia) cannot go to the beach whenever they want, but when you live in Schleswig-Holstein, you can even get to two different seas with a two-hour drive at most. From my home, the nearest beach is half an hour away and my best friend lives practically on the beach. I love that.

Every fucking school uses that song. In marching band in high school had that except we use "Mountie" instead of "Tarheel/Sooner" and I instead of Ah because it's not the south I guess? Also I refused to sing that because it's creepy as hell. (Although sometimes I did anyway because we sang it after we scored a touchdown and it was exciting)

The name of the school I went to was "Beall" (rhymes with "Hell"), so naturally we'd do a chant at football games that ended with "Give 'em hell, Beall". Never got any complaints from the other team, but the principal of the school hated it.

edit -- as for knowing nearby county names, I was a geography nerd in high school, so I memorized all the counties in Maryland (there aren't that many of them), but around here I only know the ones I need to know to understand tornado warnings. If the tornado is in Pottawatomie County, it's headed away from here. If it's in Cleveland County, it's here. If it's in McClain or Grady County, it's not here yet but moving in this direction.

Western Canada (deep in Hippie Country). My town's so isolated you need to take a 40 minute boat ride and then drive for an hour to get there. And it's on the mainland. The mall has an astounding 10 shops, 3 of which are old rich ladies clothes.

I'll guess northern BC then.

I lived for 3 years when I was young in one of the most northerly towns in Ontario.  Probably only one city over 10,000 within 3 hours drive.  Of course, it was on the trans Canada, so it was still accessible.

I grew up, though, at the intersection of the two trans Canadas in Ontario. Well, one of the intersections.

I now live in one of Canada's 5 largest cities.

Why should you be ashamed? I find it natural that anyone would be most knowledgeable in the geography of their own area of residence simply because most of your travels will be more or less local. It's easy to drive to the next town to go shopping over the day, it may take some planning to go to a larger city because it's too far away to just drive there and back over a day, and to reach a place further away you might need to fly or spend a long time traveling. Personally, I like to travel but I have barely made it outside of Europe (Asian part of Turkey), though I did pass through Eckernförde on two different occasions...

I saw Schleswig-Holstein mentionned, so I couldn't resist to add one of the two cities I visited there (well, visiting is a big word, I discovered there gebührplichtige Strand [not sur how to translate it, beach with staying fee?], the other one being Glücksburg). I know quite well Hamburg, been in Ruhrgebiet more than a couple of times, been in Genève, Lausanne, Le Locle - in fact I have been in many cities in western Europe, but I can't tell I know these cities, beacause I haven't seen much of them... that's what touring with bands brings you: geographical knowledge, touristic oblivion, and backache caused by sleeping on the floor of the gigs organizers.

Now, now. I wouldn't say 100% humidity ALL day - the tourist pleasing weather people say it's 84 degrees and 58% humidity out right now. But my car thermometer parked in the shade says 98... go figure.

Heh. We keep the AC set at 72 degrees and people complain that its cold. I do enjoy 'cool' weather every once in a while, but I do have to agree that for a Floridian 50 degrees IS COLD! Heck, I was in Philly and needed a jacket in the evening a few weeks ago.

Welcome!  I was born and bred in central Reading (and don't live that far away even now - in fact I was in Tilehurst last Saturday).

I finally found this thread.

I was born in Sydney, Australia. I currently live in Sydney. And I am sitting typing this message... in Sydney.

Yes, what an adventurous soul.  8-)

I am from the UK and an honorary mmmmmmmmmMidlander!

I'm in Birmingham, the land of the oft-misunderstood comedy accent here in the UK.  (The comedy accent in question is actually from the rural Black Country area.)

I'm originally though from near Chester/Manchester, just didn't fancy returning to my teeny tiny village when I graduated from Uni  :-D

Long, uninteresting story about why I ended up where I am now.  I've lived in the Austin area for the largest percentage of my life, but I'm originally from Lincoln, Nebraska.  Desperately want to move out of this column of states at some point.
