So... Where are y'all from?

Asked by YoBob (12798 points ) September 23rd, 2010

On other similar sites, while there were a few folks from “across the pond”, the vast majority of inhabitants were from the good old USA. However, I have noticed a pretty respectable population of folks from countries other than the US here on Fluther.

So… I’m from Texas. What about you?

@erichw1504 – Where in Central NY if I may ask? That’s my dad’s hoe ground.

Currently live in NE Ohio, grew up in Western New York. Spent a year in central Georgia where I learned that humidity and I are not friends.

@diavolobella You should befriend johnpennington, who is also in the Nashville area. You two could be Fluther’s version of Law & Order.

The map is a google spreadsheet and is public. You can add yourself here. But it is really fickle about lat and long. I put a few people in the pacific when I missed a negative sign.

And if anyone fucks up the spreadsheet I can simply revert in two seconds and lock it. Don’t be a dick!

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@johnpowell Ok, I think I successfully added myself.

“The Yo. No, seriously. Youngstown, Ohio… affectionately referred to by locals as ‘The Yo’.”

After I read your post, I thought that maybe the OP also lives in Youngstown. ;-)

BTW, if there was someone named Yale Owens who lived in the YO, what would be a good nickname for him?
