    US.....ehh?

    Right guys I am off to the states for two and a half weeks on a whirlwind tour of just about all the major tourist sites in North America. Any members in New York, Washington, Philly, Chicago, Las Vegas, Detroit and LA keep your eye out for a fairly bemused looking Irish guy who is more than likely lost. If I get time I will be calling into any GW I find in said cities.

    Feel free to point and laugh at my feeble attempt to blend in. I don't know what the interweb situation will be in my many hotels/motels but I will see if I can keep in touch with you LOser's

    Keep on truck'n.........

    Have fun on your trip. I've never been to some of those cities myself

    Welcome back Vinnie, we kept your place warm for you. :yes:

    Ryan Dancey, Vice President of Wizards of the Coast, believed that TSR failed because of "...a near total inability to listen to its customers, hear what they were saying, and make changes to make those customers happy." Are you listening, Games Workshop ?

    Yea, just over 7000km in two weeks! We managed to fit in quite a lot I think.

    As for America, I loved it, you guys really have an amazing country, as I said before it is very similar to Europe in many ways, but quite different too.
    Firstly I found the portions of food which you guys serve in restruants a lot larger than what is served in Ireland. Unfortuantly I also found there was quite a lot more heavier people that what you would see in Europe. The cars were bigger as were the trucks, but then again the county is bigger.
    One of the things that I liked the least about America though is the standard in news broadcasting. A lot of the news you get over there seems to be very negative, and in a way very frightening. There was this one guy on CNN Headline news I think, who actually really annoyed me. I think his name was Glenn Beck? He had very strong opinions about what was happening in the world and what was going to happen if America did not "sort out" Iran. But what I particularily did not like about him and his show was that if he had a guest on who disagreed with his point of view or urged caution in matters such as the Iranian issue, Glenn would insult him. This I feel is not a good thing for someone who is supposed to be reporting the news to do, surely they should remain impartial!
    Sorry about that I digress, I fully enjoyed my trip, the country was amazing, everyone we met or talked to was amazingly nice and polite. I realise that I was in the most touristy parts of the country, but I never saw any trouble or felt treatened. I could not praise the country highly enough!

    Alot of what you talk about doesn't actually sound like "news" to me. In fact, I think you're talking about what we call an editorial. I've always found that editorials are best ignored and should only be watched by people who aren't smart enough to be able to form their own opinion about subject matter.

    Real newscasters aren't supposed to have opinions. Their job is to report the news - not comment on their personal feelings about the story. Strangely enough, your average person doesn't watch CNN to get their news - they simply watch their local broadcast station.

    In any case, I'm glad you enjoyed our fair nation. She may have her problems, but she grows on you. Come back sometime, and visit the great Northwest. I'll show you around. America isn't all just landmarks and fancy cities, after all.

    Your right Caluin, I am just after realising that my previous post might be slightly inflammatory, and if anyone takes offence, I apoligise, it was not supposed to be.

    Your right about editorials of course Caluin, its just I have never seen a host of one of those shows actually abusing their guests for their opinion before. It sort of shocked me, surely someone can have a different opinion from yours without abusing them.

    Where in the Northwest do you live Caluin?
