Don't know if this has been done before but I was curious where people are from on this forum... I am guessing mainly the US but where else?

There was a thread on this before, when people where asking whether Murray came from Scotland, or the UK, and the difference between Great Britain, England and the UK etc.

Please explain the mysterious joke
A few months back there was a thread started by someone called "Rafa is the Goat" (RITG). It went into several thousand posts in a short time. I was one of the supporting actors in that "tread". (You never posted there, most sensible posters avoided it like the plague). This dude wrote really funny English full of mistakes and we all adopted his English. Most of his posts went "where is sentinel, i miss him". He even went into other threads and "looked around" for me.

Some posters got him banned and that "tread" deleted. He was totally harmless. He came back 2 times but immediately got banned. Seems he was doing the same thing on MTF, don't know if he is still there... "precentaging Rafa's chances to win a CYGS", "i am biggest rafa fan in hole world" ...

I pretended i was from Tuvalu, everyone else got that it was a joke except for him.

It's actually shee bal. Technically it's the number 18 -- but it's actually a cuss word meaning motherf**ker or b***h.

If they're calling you that, they're not really your friends.

It is. It's actually the state of Arizona in the country of the USA (Gabrielle Giffords incident a few weeks ago happened in Tucson, Arizona).

I'm LIVING in America, in Arizona but I'm from South Korea.

I am not insecure at all about being American.

And I will agree with your point that when you ask people around this country what country they are from most answer with where their ancestors came from. I dont get why but that seems to be the answer you get.

USA, the next closest thing would be my grandfather coming over from Italy, but my parents and I all speak English, no accent (normal Americans I guess) If you ask people at my school they would ask if Connecticut was a country (not kidding, two NJ kids asked me this). I just said it was next to Germany.

I believe the missing word is "*******"--is that a forbidden word or was there creative editing involved? I guess I'm from that country, too.

I guess it is a forbidden word, excuse me all to heck. We're talking a compound word, first syllable 'mid' referring to the more or less central part of the USA.

That word is also a name of another online tennis retailer, that's why it's blocked.



Anyways, originally from the Philippines, naturalized US citizen, living in the sunny state of Connecticut. I thought we already did a thread like this way back.

I just think the blocking of the word ******* is so odd. It's an innocuous word if ever there was one.

By the way, a few years back there was a ******* parody of the Hawaiian shirt called the ******* shirt, with tractors on it, barns, etc., rather than palms and hibiscus.

What's that 500 lb. 'gorilla' of a word we're tip-toeing around?...*******? Me, I don't do business with ******* and my often-used "card on file" at TW in San Luis Abysmal can attest to that. I will say this though: I did like the music ******* used in their Tennis Channel commercial during the Aussie Open.

But just in case some mod throws a rod: do NOT shop *******. :razz:

I'm sure someone will be along to correct me, but my observations are:

After native Kiwi's I believe that ex-pats make up the next demographic. Followed by a large Asian contingent. My folks for instance (English and Scot) have at least 6 ex-pat couples as there immediate neighbours. They live in Orewa, North Auckland.

The lifestyle is good: social, easy going, active (outdoor) style. The infamous Kiwi ingenuity is apparent everywhere, i.e. a strong "give it a go" attitude to most things.

Financially I'm can't really comment as I have never worked there, or lived as an adult (I left when I was 16), however typically the wages are a little lower than the norm. Consumer goods are average to slightly above average. however, that is balanced out against cheaper housing, amenities, food etc.

I have had conversations with my stepdad (Scot) who says the economy runs between 3 and 6 months behind the rest of the world...

It's certainly a beautiful part of the world that is worth a visit.
