Either I'm a bit sick constantly or I'm just being a smart ass.

More than likely it's the latter.

26th Aug 1999, 09:41 PM
Sorry Neo, just remembered your from Germany..so you probably weren't getting the funny gag.

Yeah what it is is like saying it under your breath, it's like you are not saying it because the person you are saying it to would dislike it, or you don't really want them to hear it.

Watch Waynes World, there is an example of it in that, I think.

That really didn't clear it up for you did it.

26th Aug 1999, 09:42 PM
Sorry that last one was to Farrp not Neo.

I am from the US of A, specifically from Maine. Each night I wrap myself entirely in an American flag and say the pledge of allegiance as I drift off to sleep.

McFeely.... I hope you're not serious..... American hyper patriotism is so misguided....

I'm in Ireland- Irish born and bred!

Each night I wrap myself in a Tricolour......


28th Aug 1999, 06:52 AM
I'm from Scania, Sweden. The most southern landscape of this great country.....

28th Aug 1999, 07:26 AM
I'm from that tiny little country no-one ever heard about called Belgium and I live in the city of Antwerp

28th Aug 1999, 11:56 AM
Of course I know Belgium.
I've once passed my vacations in a village (?) called Oostende.
It's at the western coast.

30th Aug 1999, 02:47 PM
Belgium...that's in Asia, right? Do you have running water? Im one of those fat, lazy, stupid Americans, yanno. I often wonder, when other nationalities bitch about Americans, are they talking about Canadians Mexicanians too? Canadia and Mexicania are in the Americas, after all. Specifically, I am from Colorado (Red Color to the Mexicanians and the Spanishanians) and the SOB server in Boulder is the only one that allows a decent ping on my 56k, even if it is on the other side of the hill from me.

Scotland. Sunshine city of Edinburgh.

31st Aug 1999, 06:12 AM
Woohoo! Some people actually know where it is! Hey I ain't referring to the Americans, just to all people I know from MP games, I found out only half of them knew it is in Europe hehe, btw the SOB is the only American server I can get a decent ping on, keep it up!

31st Aug 1999, 10:38 AM
That is really amazing... I play from the Netherlands (an even smaller spot than Belgie) and the SOB Server always provides me with a 250 to 350 ping which ist great for unreal (Half-Life would be unplayable, Action-HL draws perhaps one frame a day..).

But I am not a Cheesy, just live there (very nice people, though). My girlfriend (English) calls me a Bloody Jerry, so I must be one :-)

Am applying for jobs in California, because it is so nice and warm there. How is the ping to the SOB-Server from there?? (otherwise I stay where I am :-)


31st Aug 1999, 11:25 AM
I'm from the city so nice, they named it twice: New York, NY. Nice to see the diversity in the community!

31st Aug 1999, 12:06 PM
Do you get 250/350 ping at night or also at daytime? Cos I have cable, and in daytime I get 700 but at night (from 11/12h) I get 250 too...

31st Aug 1999, 01:37 PM
Rohnert Park, California .... with a 150 to 250 ping.

31st Aug 1999, 06:50 PM
I think this needs to be said...

To all the Americans, go look at the original question, there is a key word all except the first of you missed, it's C O U N T R Y.

That's all. Oh and he asked for one rep from each C O U N T R Y, not each insignificant city.

31st Aug 1999, 09:59 PM
hehe- it'll be ok /infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif - I don't think it's a big deal myself- and I doubt anyone would care if they knew which state in America I am in- nor would it bother me if I knew where 3 different people live in Germany- I think it's great we're all getting to know each other better.

1st Sep 1999, 01:27 AM
All you punks from California can come down to Ventura County and kick it in my pad (ok not really, but it sounded good, didn't it?)


2nd Sep 1999, 12:07 AM

You mean Ventura country as in Jesse the body? Ha ha, heard about that here, I'm a big Conan O'Brien fan, we get one day old episodes on cable here, funny stuff, yeah Conan was bagging it. Grew up on pay per view videos of WWF, love it. Summerslam 88, one of my fav's.

Hey do any of you guys watch the Tom Green show?

InF is good. (thought I better throw something related to the game in)

2nd Sep 1999, 12:41 AM
Nope, I mean Ventura County, California, but your idea was better /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

2nd Sep 1999, 02:40 PM
My bum is on the Swedish! Swedish!.....Oh sorry....Answer your question RaekwoN? Well, actually I don't, but I've seen clips and he's funny.


2nd Sep 1999, 04:58 PM
I've got some UNDIES!.....aheemmm what oh yes it does. I haven't seen that one cause slack ass Australian cable networks only get old episodes. We've only got season 1 and 2, but it's awesome.

Did I mention I'm Australian? (topic related input)hehehe
