Where are you from?

I'm curious to know where ~ users are from!

I live in the United States in the greatest state in the union (Minnesota, of course!) The land of Target, passive-aggression, and wishing Prince wasn't dead. Oh, and 10,000 11,842 lakes.

          Hey that's pretty sweet. I remember a while back that the government didn't really want a referendum because it would be a waste of resources. Good to see that it can now be properly removed

      SFV here! Dang, there are a lot of socal folks here. Anyone interested in a treasure hunt? I've been working on a big one lately. It'll be mostly around the valley, hollywood hills, topanga, maybe santa clarita, and maybe angeles crest (still debating the last two). It'll involve a decent bit of hiking, some simple crypto, some compass and map work, and hopefully some good ol fashioned bad poetry hints.

        Hmm, depends how much time you have and what your interests are! I'm assuming you're already planning on visiting Second City and the like. My favorite museum is the Art Institute - if you do that plan on spending a whole day there, but there are a lot of very high quality museums for different interests. The Museum of Science & Industry is great for sciencey stuff, the Field Museum is top notch for natural and human history (and is currently installing the world's single largest discovered dinosaur in their main hall, displacing Sue the TRex who is the most complete TRex skeleton ever found [and who has been moved to her own exhibit, not removed completely]), The Shedd Aquarium is an amazing aquarium, the Adler Planeterium is a little more geared towards kids but if you're really into Astronomy is probably still well worth a visit. And then you have all the food from amazing pizza to local delicacies like Italian Beef and Chicago-style hot dogs, to Micehlin restaurants like Aliant (if you can get a reservation and can afford it). There are just amazing public spaces if you just want to walk around and people-watch. Millenium Park is famous for the bean but Chicagoans use it heavily for the large grassy space and gardens. And it's right next to Grant Park which is its own beautiful place with the spectacular Buckingham Fountain. And my god, the architecture! I'm a little biased in this category as I'm an architect myself, but you won't find any city better. I highly highly recommend the river boat tour, which puts you on a pleasant boat ride down the Chicago river with a docent who will talk about all the buildings you pass. That can be found through the Chicago Architecture Foundation.

        That's really just the tip of the iceberg. If you can give me some more details I would be happy to help further!

      I know that you are a territory of the US and that you are US Citizens, but I feel like I'll list it separately from the US, just because I think it's cool to see it broken out rather than lumped in with the rest of the 100+ Americans. What do you think?

        list it separately from the US

        I feel that, even though its technically part of the US, you should list it separately. Mostly because the language and culture difference is pretty drastic. In the end, it's up to you.

        Born and bred in Nepal. I live in Kathmandu, and go to a university in Dhulikhel.
        By Nepali standards, I (thankfully) belong to a middle class family, so I did have Iregular nternet access from a very young age(10). If not for the Internet, I would be a completely different person today.

        What I meanty by 'poor' is that Nepal has one of the lowest GDPs worldwide and a huge amount living below the poverty line. I live in the capital city, yet you can see garbage lying by the river side, people spitting and littering on streets, and 90% of traffic lights are out of order. Our infrastructure would have people rioting in any first-world nation (roads are all cracked, drinking water is hard to come by, you can't buy anything online using paypal or such, and so on).

        It's basically your poorer-than-average third-world nation.

        different hues would be for different categories. different saturation levels would be for what we are trying to show here -- intensity of one value (replies).

        also instead of total count it should be replies per capita or replies per tildes accounts from that country so we can get a true representation of the proportion of replies. instead it will just show the countries with the highest population.

          That makes total sense. Good thing I put a disclaimer already that it was crappy. I thought about doing the same color at different intensities, but i wanted it to be pretty and colorful.

          As to your second point, I personally wasn't interested in proportion of users per capita. I was interested in the physical count. How many from each country and which countries had most. So I guess I'm glad I made the map I wanted and not the one that's "correct."

    Tucson, Arizona, USA.
    It's as close to the Old West as you can get, with Saguaro cacti everywhere and extreme desert heat in the summer.
    It became the only city in America to be a UNESCO Culinary City, and our food scene is pretty awesome.
    Our funky and eclectic 4th Ave. is being gentrified and it's a huge point of division and contention here.
    The main demographics here are a ton of poor folks, some wealthy independent artists, and, for part of the year, a ton of college students.
    It's a mostly friendly, no-bullshit kind of culture here. Lots of lovely freaks and weird characters.
    However, the employment options are shit.
