Right, it's probably bad luck that my very first forum posts were replying to a player who thought I had abused my staff powers, so I want to start my forum experiences off properly. I am an American (Yes I admit it, I'm a bloody Yank that tries to talk like a Brit >_>), however I've noticed that the vast majority of SGC clan members are from different parts of Europe (particularly the United Kingdom). I was hoping by starting this thread I could gain insight into the "little worlds" everyone lives in in their different areas of our big world. I'll start: I live in Mooresville, North Carolina, United States of America. Our town is often referred to as "Race City, U.S.A." because we have the NASCAR Hall of Fame and many museums to racing here. In fact, the old liveries for our police vehicles were inspired by such: http://images14.fotki.com/v380/photos/3/49373/8486038/cnpca13615-vi.jpg Mooresville is also connected to Lake Norman, which unfortunately is the only sizable body of water we have around here because we're located in the Piedmont part of N.C. (in between the Coast and the Mountains). We're in between Statesville to the North, which is where Iredell County has most of it's government buildings, and Charlotte to the South, which is the largest urban center (city) for both of the Carolinas. In "Downtown" (as it's called) Mooresville we have "Main Street" which houses a lot of different buildings, mostly new but some still enduring from the 1930s and 40s. We also have a number of industrial areas, and our town is surrounded by farms on the outskirts (something I distinctly remember as our family was driving down here from New York, the other thing being the sheer amount of churches around). We've been actively expanding since the 1960s, with the continuous influx of people from different states hoping to find a cheaper place to live (as was the case for my family) and companies hoping to achieve financial success in fresh environment. We're a fairly stereotypical "Southern" town with a like for sweet tea and biscuits (mostly the Bojangles kind) and have a number of diners/restaurants littered about that serve various dishes from North Carolina and other Southern states. This is just "scratching the surface" of our town's information, I hope to learn much from the others here about life across the sea.
