    Love him. Dad listens to him all the time, and so influenced my taste--favourite song is 'Dancing in the dark'. Yours?

    We made a Frapper Map of MR membership a couple of years ago.

    Might be fun to make a new Frapper Map and overlay it with the old map and see how we've grown or shrunk or changed or whatever.

    That said, I'm remarkably lazy and not going to set up the map. And I certainly don't have the know how to overlay the maps.

    So, someone get to work. I got you to define Macrumors, after all. :p

    I'm from California, in the United States. Lived there all my life, but I'm going to move to the east coast when I go to college in 2008.

    I'm English, but voted for Europe since I'm a republican :)

    BTW Davish, I wasn't aware qualifications could have a sexuality. Unless G, A and Y are your expected grades of course :p

    In an international forum, that's not a full enough description. Are you from Tbilisi?

    Just been watching 24 Hour Party People again today. I swear it's the best Manchester propaganda going. Birth place of the computer, bouncing bomb and trains. If you didn't know...
