in reply to poll ideas quest

It would be fun to know were people are living. There's a very old poll, I live in this Continent (node id 2142!), but that one only focused on continents.

I suggest the following regions (people should pick the closest match):


  • USA
  • Canada
  • South America


  • China (incl. HK), Taiwan, Singapore
  • India
  • Japan
  • North/South Korea
  • South-East Asia
  • Asia


  • France
  • Germany
  • Great Britain
  • Italy
  • Netherlands
  • Russia
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Eastern Europe
  • Northern Europe
  • Southern Europe
  • Western Europe

Middle East

(I know this is not a continent, but I'm not sure where to include it)

  • Israel
  • Middle East


  • Australia
  • New Zealand
  • Oceania

Rest of the world

  • Africa
  • Arctica
  • Antarctica

Of course, I don't want to discriminate against anyone here. This is just a trade-off between a list that will allow the majority of monks to choose their country of orign and having a list that is too long. Just reply to this node or /msg me to specify countries or regions that you feel should be specifically included. Or /msg me if you feel the list is too long :).

The question should be "Where do you live?", rather than "Where are you from?", since quite a number of people probably hail from a different country than they currently live in.

    Ehm... where?

    I don't know, it's an insignificant blue ball in the third orbit around a rather mediocre yellow star hanging on to the Orion arm of this Milkyway thing galaxy. I don't know what cluster it is in, mom doesn't allow me to cross the gaps.
    There are a couple of billion like me here. They like to hole up on patches of land with imaginary borders around it. Gives them something to fight over. ;)
    Can't we all speak perl and get along? =P

    if( exists $aeons{strange} ){ die $death unless ( $death%2 ) }
