Mike and Guesser -  Lots of people from French Lick, Indiana have relatives there.  They check your license and registration at the border for safe entry.  The people from Gay Meadows, AL tried to set up a community there, but they were kicked out and finally settled in Queer Creek, Alaska.  There was so much gossip about the woman from Three Way, Arkansas that she finally sold her home and headed off to Fort Dick, Calif.

PSYKOMO voted..........................Bar Harbor, ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Pennsylvania seems to have a lot of place names that are, um, interesting.  Even stranger than Blue Ball being  a stone's throw from Intercourse,  only 45 mile away you can find Virginville. You'd have to go almost 250 miles in the opposite direction to get to Keisterville. There's a place where you could just sit around  and relax while things die down.



      And after all that is done..

      Please visit Bath, PA

            since you all talking about visiting other countries, i thought i share this with you all..I think it was CNN or Fox they were talking about this website where all you have to do is pay 59.99 for the membership and you can swap houses (i would think apartments too) with anyone in the world for a vacation...The person you swap with is responsible for bills and everything in your house, and you are responsible for the person's house and bills and car bills, etc...I don't know what's the name of the website since i wasn't paying too much attention...Places like France, Estonia, Croatia, United Kingdom, swisszerland, etc...The bad thing about it is that you don't get to know the person you are swaping with really well, and if something happens the company is not responsible for paying damages (i am not clear about this part since i didn't hear it really well)...They were saying that is something new in the states...I think is bad luck for people that live where the cost of living is high because you are dealing with the rest of the world and they wouldn't want to swap with you...Example, someone living in new York city may not be able to swap really good with someone from Guatemala, unless the person is wealthy, which brings me to another point...I believe that most of the people wanting to swap in other countries, are going to be people that are well off, so this mean that when you swap you are going to be staying in the nicest area of the country you are swaping in/with...According to the News, you decide how long you want to stay and both person agree on it...

            I personally don't think it will work well with a house but i do think it would work good with an apartment (swaping apartments across the world)...I think they should start first with apartments and then make the leap to houses....Also i think the company/website should charge more than 59.99 and the money gathered should go into paying for damages if in case there is any...Also the company should open up a forum or chatroom so that people that are swapping can get to know each other....Well i mean is not a bad idea if you swaping apartments....Also, i would recomend swapping in countries where you know you can speak the language otherwise save a lot of money so it will last you the entire time you decide to be in that country...Again, swapping houses i don't know if it will work, but swapping apartments i think it should...

                Well right after winning and no one knows who it is, I will go to work as normal for a few days so I can curse out a few of my supervisors. Then Spread Eagle, WI doesn't sound like a bad place to dissappear to with my new name Richard Head.

                I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                   "Lay low" is slang for "going to the mattresses", which means disappearing for awhile, thus vanishing.

                  When people had to "blow town" in the Roaring 20's era they were sent to aparments that their bosses (ahem) had....there were mattresses on the floor to serve as beds, so the people would be below window level, thus the term "go to the mattresses."

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
