We have members from both hemispheres and countless countries, but I start discussions on topics relevant to the US. I'd really like to hear from members outside of the US too. What's happening? How are you doing? What's bothering you or what are you celebrating?
We're not a US ghetto, enrich us by sharing your lives too please.
Hang in there, baby! Sounds more challenging than a routine riot at the bowling alley among Thursday night's Jersey league teams between the Sopranos and their cousins!
love to hear stories from around the world.... especially from non western English speaking countries- our news just doesn't cover them.... :)
Well i live in Bhutan, small, peaceful and so to say religious country. All bhutanese are religious and believe in reincarnation and rebirth. Perhaps i may be the only one who is a atheist. People hear seem to pray, go to get blessings from lamas(buddhist priest) spending lot of money and are very supersticious. I sometimes wonder why people are so crazy about getting blessigs. Perhaps this may br the case, bhutanese are greedy and want to get more of anything. We can observe quarrel among the family members regarding the division of property, corruption, favoritism and a lot of other un ethical deeds.
Right now small and peaceful sounds idyllic compared to a lot of other places on
Earth, even with family quarrels, favoritism, corruption, and superstition. *sigh*
So not many people worry about radiation in the food then? How are the school children taking all of this? Personally I would have nightmares about the far-from-controlled nuclear accident upwind, even if everybody maintained a calm demeanor during the daytime. But I tend to be 2 standard deviations above normal for fear.
