Anyone here from the UK?
« on: 02 May 2008, 15:27 »

Well? Perhaps there should be a big meet up one day?

Any thoughts?

No.

No one is from the UK.

Usually the website is actually blocking all UK ips, so I don't know how you got here.

That's not true, three of us are posting from Antartica, sharing a computer at a research post. Then again, we're all originally form New Jersey, I guess that doesn't count.

Yes.  It's a totally fictional place.  Kind of like Middle-Earth.

I'm posting from Hawaii right now, but I grew up in New Jersey.

I'm originally from Halifax. Obviously that's Halifax, Nova Scotia since the Uck doesn't exist.

I'm secretly proud to be Ucky.

Nobody here is from the UK, and even if they were, ask yourself- why on earth would you want to meet up with them?  The UK is full of British people,and also British Sympathizers.

If there were any Uck-dwellers here, however, I'm sure they would be glad to meet other members of the fantasy race of Uck. I for one would enjoy such an experience, if I was Ucky and not really from New Jersey.

What we're trying to say is The UK is a Lie.

I grew up in one of New Jersey's oversea colonies, it's this weird little island to the west of France. I hear that in the olden days they liked to play with boats here and sometimes people from real countries like America would come and visit with guns.

OK seriously, a UK meet would be fun! But it shouldn't be in London because that place scares me. Also it's miles away from all the real places like Scotland and Wales. Let's all meet up bang in the middle of Britain on Midsummers Day and do a fertility dance.

There's been a few hasn't there? The problem is that your favourite Brits are never available at the same time, so it's much easier to meet them all independently of each other.

the one he is referring to only had 2 scots from the forums, as far as I am aware. The other two stopped by from the Americas. There's at least 6 people from the forum currently residing in Scotland though.

Halve that 16,000, as most of those guys probably aren't active regulars. Now divide that by three, as two thirds probably reside in the general forums. If the number really was so much higher, our meet-ups would have a much bigger turn out than three to four people from the entire UK.

Not everyone can show up at the same time in the same places guys. I would've come to the Glasgow meet up if I had known about it before hand and it hadn't been on a weekend I had major assignments due.

Yes teachers/lecturers can be very very inconsiderate in the sense that they don't cater around our needs.

Altohugh I was actually guessing about the number of Scot's seems I was fairly accurate, well I'm in Glasgow on a weekly basis and hoping to move there come next year.

Back on topic, have we actually got a rough number of how many, "uck", forum lurkers there are?

The one time I ever went to Jersey they made us take some weird-ass, unsigned detour around the turnpike, just to get back onto the NYS Thruway. It was recockulous.
