ha no its not the same town. the one from the movie (although I wouldn't be caught dead watching a Orlando Bloom film) was somewhere in the south. Kentucky or something. maybe it was Alabama. I forget. but no, I live in Pennsylvania.

Post by: el steve bo on May 01, 2006, 02:03:53 PM
yeah, there are alot of Amish around her actually haha. its weird, you'll be driving down the highway, and see a horse and buggy on the side.....but you get used to it.

p.s. I once had an Amish guy listen to Ben Folds.............that didn't go over so well.

Title: Re: The Suburbs United!-our world map!
Post by: Hanny on May 02, 2006, 07:45:07 AM
If anyone can be bothered heading to Australia i'm there!

implies it can add aussies, think you just got to click and drag the map round...i was a bit slow on the uptake of dragging the map away from the US and towards the UK too lol u'll get the hang ;)
Title: Re: The Suburbs United!-our world map!
Post by: DrAlexHaleIII on May 02, 2006, 08:02:10 AM
Ok, you see where it says "Not in the US?"? Click that, it changes to "Enter world city". Enter your city, that should work... I've checked it, it has Australian cities on...

Tagg and Jake have proved Australia exists. Yay!

Done that, clicked submit and it has some weird "Capatcha error".

Oooo I got it to work!

I think there was something wrong with it yesterday because it kept saying captcha error but it's fixed now.

Now there's no excuse for the Aussies.

Title: Re: The Suburbs United!-our world map!
Post by: Liv on May 07, 2006, 01:21:56 AM
Yeah, I think it's working for all the Aussies now :) I think it heard us complaining.

Pity it doesn't have the roads and stuff for Australia, though.

So, can I be there twice? Once for Oz, coz that's where I came from, and once for here, coz this is where I am now. :o Probably that would give it brain freeze or something.

Nope, you can infact be on there twice, for I am in High Wycombe outside London, and also in Belgium. Given I spend pretty much equal time in each place.

Title: Re: The Suburbs United!-our world map!
Post by: Tractor Boy on July 29, 2006, 01:58:25 PM
"Though there is tractor boy near me - hmmm. At least we got Benty off yer cheap!"

We were all hoping you'd sell him for 15m or something stupid so we'd actually be able to spend some money on new players through the sell on clause. Arseholes for persuading him to stay!! Hopefully he'll get off to a flyer and someone will come in with a ridiclous bid that you can't refuse! Otherwise we're stuck with dodgy loan players and free transfers.

Were Charlton fans as p**sed off as we were that Bent didn't go to Germany??!!

Whoops, sorry. This isn't a football message board is it!
Title: Re: The Suburbs United!-our world map!
Post by: drummerstu on July 30, 2006, 05:58:32 AM
It was an absolute disgrace Bent wasn't in Germany, it was in the bag dammit!

Its a shame he won't be at Charlton next season though if he has another stormer...

Good thing about moving to Norwich is that half their squad are Charlton rejects, and we get to whip yo beeehinds!
Title: Re: The Suburbs United!-our world map!
Post by: Tractor Boy on July 30, 2006, 09:45:41 AM
But half the Charlton squad are Ipswich rejects! (both Bents, Ambrose, Hreidarrson, Holland)

Ok, maybe rejects isn't quite the right word in this instance.

We beat Norwich 2-1 last time we played them by the way.
