   Discussion: How many countries have you been in?
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 15 years, 1 month ago
I've been in the US, Canada, Israel, and changed planes in England.
Andrea Krause Back · 15 years, 1 month ago

US, Canada, France, Bahamas. Not very well-travelled. I really want to hit scotland, england wales, ireland. Dunno when or if that'll happen.

lawrence · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, France, and England.
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, England, and China. Though I guess Japan too if you count the layover from the US to China, but alas, I did not because I wasn't even sure if I stopped in Japan since I was 4 at the time.
Nik Chaikin · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, and the British West Indies
Jºnªthªn · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, Mexico, the Bahamas, Germany, and Japan. All I need is Italy to get my All Axis Card ;)
Starfox · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Japan, England, France, Wales, and um...that's about it.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
Does Wales count? Is Wales a country? What is Wales? I don't think the Welsh know. Scotland has its own parliament so I think I'd count Scotland but not Wales.

Sara Woodward Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
Oh geez, I just editted my post because of Scotland, now I potentially have to count Wales too? you'd think this would have been an easy question!
Starfox Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
If you have ever been in Wales, you wouldn't be asking that question. :)
Joy- new picture! Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
Hmm. I just counted the whole UK. But that would definitely bump me from my 6 up to 8... very tempting...

(US, Canada, Mexico, France, Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales...)
Bender Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
to quote someone I know (I forget who it was):

"America is a country made up of states. The UK is a state made up of countries."
dirty life & times · 15 years, 1 month ago
us, canada, mexico, israel. france & netherlands if you count plane stopovers. also, i been where what will hopefully be a future palestinian state.
nate... · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, Bahamas, Spain, Ireland, Mexico and Jamaica... and actually, do the british virgin islands count?

Shelly Back · 15 years, 1 month ago

I'd count them because you need a state issued birth certificate or passport for proof of citizenship to go there...like you couldn't just stumble in, ya know??

So I'd say you're at 8. =)

sheryls · 15 years, 1 month ago
Us, Canada and Japan :D

Boston is starting to feel like a different country. everyone stares at us.
Bruce Rose Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
Same three, and compared to Ohio, Boston is different country. How long do you think it'll be before you have the accent?
Talcott Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
I'd wager not too long.
I already find myself dropping the occasional "R" and saying "Wicked" a bit more often than I plan to ;-)
Andrea Krause Back · 15 years, 1 month ago

As long as you don't say "ayup..."

And wicked will probably be picked up. Words get picked up much quicker and more easily than full accents.

Talcott Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
That and "Wicked" holds a useful place in the language. It ads flexability to a statement.

It's not like "soda" which just replaces another equally useful word ;-)

I'm sure I (or Sheryl) will never have the full, thick, new england accent (which sounds almost British) but bits of it do creep in.

Then again, I've always talked oddly ;-)
Sara Woodward Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
pop is just a word for those people who can't remember all four letters of soda. ;-)
Talcott Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
I can remember all four letters, it's just the direction.

Is it Ados or Soda, I can never remember.

Pop solves that problem, and it's onomatopoeia, which is always a good thing!
lawrence Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
and it's onomatopoeia

it is? maybe when you're referring to a balloon breaking...
Bender Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
if we were talking onomatopoeic cans, wouldn't soda be called crickhiss?
nate... Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
See, I don't know that there's a new england accent as much as a boston accent.

and THAT accent is just dumb. :D
Andrea Krause Back · 15 years, 1 month ago

Well...I think it's more than Boston. Like...maybe Coastal New England. Because RI and Maine and such have a variation.

nate... Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
Hrm... yeah, that's true.

But the RI accent is quite a bit different....
As is the maine one, actually.

Andrea Krause Back · 15 years, 1 month ago

But the coastal areas do just generally seem more likely to have pronounced accents. Maybe it's from the old shipping trades and such, contact with folks from overseas and up the canadian coast. :) (of course this is all speculation pulled from my ass. If I actually looked it up I could probably have facts and not speculation!)

Songbill Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
My uncle in Maine has the big-time New England accent. You know, "Bah Hahbah" and all that. I couldn't differentiate between it and a Boston or other accent, though.
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
Hee! Bill, what a great icon!

Yeah, the Boston accents can be a bit too nasally for me. Then again, I'm used to the New York accents.
Bruce Rose Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
Wicked doesn't just add to a statement... sometimes, it's a statement itself.
Andrea Krause Back · 15 years, 1 month ago

I don't think she will. :) My sister lived there for a bunch of years and never developed a hint of it.

Does CT have an accent? I don't think so. But if I'm one of 'em I might not know. :)

Bruce Rose Back · 15 years, 1 month ago

Does that mean I might not get the Chicago accent? Curses!

I don't think CT has an accent, but I've only really been to Middletown, which is overrun with other accents.

Geoff Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
You're in Boston now? Damn, I gotta buy you lunch!

Oh, and I've been in 2. US and Canada. And Canada was just this year.
danced with Lazlo · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, Israel, France, Spain. So far.
Talcott · 15 years, 1 month ago
Well, those first two ;-)
Also The Netherlands (well, the plane landed in Amsterdam), Austria, Lechtestein, Switzerland, and Germany.

Hrm, and I voted wrong, because I can't count.
*goes up to the poll and changes "8-12" to "7"*
Kris 'engaged' Bedient · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, Mexico. yay north america! (I'll break free to europe or asia one of these years)
stealthlori Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
me too. but Spain is veryvery likely this July. *crosses crossables*
A girl named Becca · 15 years, 1 month ago
I assume the whole British empire counts as 1 country? Like, can I not get separate points for the British Virgin Islands, Gibraltar, Scotland, and England? (Because I really want to be in that 8-12 bracket!)

[Edit: Ooh! I forgot to count Belgium! I'm in the 8-12 range anyway!]

US, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, BV Islands/Gibraltar/Scotland/England.
Erato · 15 years, 1 month ago
US, Canada, Italy, Israel, England, and Scotland.
Shelly · 15 years, 1 month ago
ooops...i chose 5, but it's -actually- 6 for moi~the US, Canada, Spain, Bahamas, The Dominican Republic{thrice there} & Mexico.

i don't remember where we changed planes or IF we did when i went to spain, so i won't count that.
Livin' in Seattle · 15 years, 1 month ago

US, Canada, Mexico, Venezuala, Bonaire (Netherlands Antilles), Netherlands, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Japan, Australia.

Mostlyfor work...so while my passport's got a lot of stamps, I've had precious little spare time to explore all these wonderful places. I know the roads between the airport, hotel, and office very well!

rufus t firefly · 15 years, 1 month ago
I think you'll find the Scots would want you to count their fair country separately from England ;).

US, Mexico, England, Scotland, Italy, Malta, Greece, Turkey.

It's so stupid that I haven't been to Canada yet. I'm coming up there, I swear.
nitsita · 15 years, 1 month ago

Canadia, US, France, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal... I forgot Portugal.

. I was nine. I'm entitled to forgetting Portugal.

Sara Woodward · 15 years, 1 month ago
Higher than I thought it'd be. U.S., Canada, England, Ireland, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, and Monaco.

I just saw the Scotland note. the CIA world factbook seems to consider it not a separate country, but wikipedia does consider it a separate one. It's a bit of a gray area. if Scotland is a separate country, then I'm at 13, it just depends on how you look at it. not being Scottish or English, I'm not the one to answer the question. :) okay, i'm editting again. you'd think this would be easy. apparently Wales and Scotland are considered separate countries, so i'm at 14, unless something bizarre comes up.
tibbar · 15 years, 1 month ago

How come there's no 0 option for those who were born on ships and have spent their whole lives on international waters? Huh? HUH???

Insensitive clod.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
Because as anyone conversant with maritime law knows, a ship is considered the sovereign territory of the country it is registered in. Are you friends with Phillip Nolan?
goovie is married! · 15 years, 1 month ago

Gordondon son of Ethelred · 15 years, 1 month ago
So who is going to make the master list of all the nations visited by Fruheads?
stealthlori Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
um. you.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
um no. My job is to have ideas, it is always someone else's job to do the actual work. I am a natural born committee member.
stealthlori Back · 15 years, 1 month ago
I refute this nonsense with the evidence given by you in your latest livejournal entry.
