Alaskan QC Forumites
« on: 30 Dec 2008, 14:19 »

We are having a meetup in mid or late January in Anchorage (I didn't have everyone's usernames written down, or I would have PM'd everyone).

We are building an igloo, it is going to be awesome.

And if anyone from the mainland or Canada is going to be over in the land of snow and darkness soon the date is negotiable so we can change it around those visits (though who in their right mind would visit Alaska in the winter).

PM either me or memann for details, though most of it is up in the air.

Patrick is cool people but is actually from the Bay Area. He's only in Alaska when he occasionally flees Albania out of boredom or misses his girlfriend.

Patrick is dating Sarah Palin?
Hot.

So is this only going to be a meetup for Alaskans or are Eastern Canadians invited also?

I swear to god if one more person uses Sarah Palin as the general representation of Alaskan people I will massacre everyone.

And we were going to wait to have a summer meetup so Patrick could come, but then there would be no igloo building.

Technically, Sarah Palin is a representative of the Alaskan people, as the state's governor. Her position makes it possible to assume that the Alaskan people, in general, support her actions.

Also, all Illinoisians are corrupt assholes.

Given:

All Illinoisians are corrupt unless they are black.
Emaline is Illinoisian.
Emaline is not corrupt.

Therefore:

Emaline is black.

I was in Alaska back in August and it was much, much colder than 80 degrees. (probably because it was spent primarily standing on a glacier)

Hmm. I went two years ago in July and spent most of it in Anchorage, Denali national park, Glacier Gap Lake, and in Valdez, including the bay and surrounding glaciers. It was over 70 degrees every day. Whatever.

Only 3 people who actually are from Alaska have posted in this thread.  Just a little depressing.

On the other hand, that means that Alaska has the highest per capita response rate to this thread of any state!

On every forum I've ever visited, theres always an Alaska thread.  Why do Alaskians feel the need to have their own thread?  I never see a California thread, or a New York thread.  Maybe its because they think they're special.

There's a thread for every meet-up. There hasn't been a New York meet-up in a while. Californians are always talking about their state- just look around.

That is because California is too big. It still confuses me somewhat that LA and San Francisco are in the same state.

Same deal with Texas; I remember when I was 9 and my family drove there from MN to visit some family in San Antonio. It was like a 20 hour trip one way, and I think something ridiculous like 7 or 8 hours was actually within Texas itself.

I'm aware that I'm British and therefore doomed to be terrible at geography, but I am confused.

I just looked on a state map to see where these places are, and incidentally located Michicgan and Illinois.

Why are they called Midwest? Is New York in the west? Is California in the east? Why is this? I am confused.

Because the first European settlements were mostly on the coast where New York is, so the rest of the country is west of there. Michigan and Illinois are midway to "the west" of cowboy and goldrush and conestoga wagons time, so they're in the Midwest.
