ASL?
 
Because I'm very new to these forums it's nice to know who I'm getting in contact with. Even though the topic title sounds like I'm a pervert, it summaries very well the questions I mean to ask.

Age:
Born in the glorious year of 1991

Sex:
Male

Location:
Belgium

I have a feeling that most of you are older than I and male and US-located. Quite strange, isn't it? I feel like a continental outlander!

Bram, there's quite a mix here. A fair few European members, & many other areas globally too. There is a big US focus, but I'm guessing that's a forum language thing more than anything else. We do have a few members from Asia, but we're grossly under represented in that fantastic part of the world. A lot of Brits here :)

There's a good number of members here your age & younger, & a growing number of ladies too (always pleasing to see). Most of all, there's a right mix of talents & experience. A lot of pro's hang here, including headline names, right through to those taking their first steps. Overall, a great mix, & absolutely the best forum by a mile (sorry, KM ;)

Haha, well, I can tell I'm much older than you just by the fact I had to Google what the heck asl is. I thought maybe you made a typo while talking about the anterior cruciate ligament. lol

Anyway, pretty good mix here, as the others said.

As for me -

s - as often as possible

l - Idaho

Ah, there are? Well ealrier today I noticed Frank's topic, and he's a Dutchman! Even though Americans might think we Belgians only speak French, it's not that easy. My mother tongue is Dutch as well. So it's nice to hear I have that in common with Frank, at least.

What I like about this forum is that you guys (and girls, apologies) refer to each other with your real names! haven't really seen that on a lot forums!

Ah, so you're Flemish speaking? I visit Belgium every now & then. Great people, & the best beer anywhere (I'm not a chocolate guy really). Managed to take some time out in the historical centre of Antwerp recently. Great architecture mix, & one of the most impressive train station buildings I've seen anywhere :)

BTW, KM was Kilometers :)

Flemish it is indeed (even though our dialects should not be placed under one heading "Flemish", but it is a good way to distinguish between stereotypical Dutch that is spoken in the Netherlands and Dutch that is spoken in Belgium). Fun fact: even though the Netherlands and Belgium are completely autonomous and seperate countries, we do have a global counsel that governs the Dutch language. They decide what is "correct" in Dutch around the globe.

I love our beer as well! Every other country I have been, the beer tastes ... well, watery. It is not as defined as the beers we have in our country. Something to be proud of! Antwerp indeed has a very nice train station. The (modernistic) train station of Luik-Guillemins (no idea what the name is in English) is worth a visit as well. (Warning: French is the leading language over there!)

When you happen to be in Belgium again, and you like history: visit Bruges, Ghent and possibly Waterloo. But basically ANYWHERE will do. We have a very rich history (not all for the good though).

Oh, and about the people: I hate my people. Selfish, self-centred bastards. Looking at politics you might understand what I mean - or not - for recent tendencies are very anti-social.

My first guess would have been that you are American, because our stereotypical view of Americans is that they indeed believe America is the chosen country of God. But you are from Wales? Do they believe the same thing? (Poor God, can't decide things for Himself.)

Canada, eh

There are several Canucks on the forum, but are usually on the quieter side - in stereotypical Canadian fashion. There was one, ahem, notable exception ...

BTW, There are some Aussies around who usually have some great posts (I don't think this was mentioned.)

Cheers,
radman

Americans may believe that, but it's entirely possible to believe something that isn't true. I only live in Wales, in these parts they call people like me "Wenglish". And anyway, God chose Wales before America was even invented!

One for each of my principal interests: drumming and horses, and then there's Facebook (as you know). You met the Madge manifestation, of course.

You can click on a members name, and then click on "view public profile" .... and sometimes that info is there. Location is often in the right hand corner, along with join date and # of posts.

Mind being blown... crazy to find out that those you have been talking to are female... certainly changes my view on things. I ha e never put much thought into it, but I think it's because I'm one of like four people who actually has a picture of myself as a posting pic. I feel like I would be a creeper to go looking around on others profiles. Like on FB.

Speaking of which, who wants to add me? ;)
