Frankly, NYC looks fucking terrifying. I don't ever intend to go there. Maybe the outskirts, to ride some of its trains. But not the city proper.

I don't like NYC. Hate the sports fans, think the city's a mess.

Oh the fans are assholes, but they are losers now (superbowl = blocked from my brain) so its dealable.

Well I've never been to America, and have no intention of ever going there, so I can't really contribute. So I'll talk about Asia!

Phnom Penh is a great place - a bit rustic, but really charming. Kuala Lumpur... Nah, don't even think about it. Singapore, just like Kuala Lumpur, only better.

One of these days, I want to see all fifty American states, and as many of its other territories as possible. I think that would be a really interesting thing to do. Plus, in political debates, I can pwn the "but you're not American, you can't have an opinion!" n00bs by asking them "so, how many of your own states have you visited?"

Though I need to do all of Australia's states and territories first. I can't believe I'm in my 10th year here and I've only seen three. Though they mostly are mighty big states.

I have. Despite being frigid in late April, it's a great place. Loved the accents too.

Hey, Danimal, are you indoctrinating your little brother to Bowie? You'd better. You're his fucking mentor now. The catholic church says so.

I love the people of Philadelphia. I drove down to Philly with some buddies last Saturday, and while navigating in the traffic (which was at a standstill), my buddy leans out the window and asks the guy in the other lane if he could let us in. Completely straight-faced, the guy goes, "Five bucks, buddy." My buddy, who's an idiot, turns to us with semi-scared shock, as we all start cracking up. As we pull in front, the guy grins a little and nods to us, knowing he got my buddy.

Damn you, Nate.

I can talk about southeast Queensland.

Which SE QLD city epically phails the most?
4. Sunshine Coast: It's just some coastal towns pretending to be something more urban, north of Brisbane. Less whored out to tourists than the Gold Coast. Flaky and shithouse, but comparatively less so.
3. Brisbane: Brisvegas is right. It would like to think it's entertaining but it's not. The fucking ugly motorway along the river does nothing to help it, but some recent redevelopment has improved the place somewhat. And St Lucia is a nice suburb. The rest can go fuck itself.
2. Gold Coast: Hideousness. So horrendously whored out to tourists, and not a semblance of urban planning in sight. Gigantor muthafuckin' PHAILURE.
1. Ipswich: Biggest hole in the world. Enough said.

He won't listen. He saw the cover of Low and thinks Bowie's too feminine. "He thinks he's a girl!"

My brother's buy rap songs on iTunes. It's uncontrollable.

Same here! I've been to Queensland, Western Australia, Victoria (obviously), NSW and South Australia, but not the others.

Melbourne's still the best though. Sydney's mediocre, unfriendly and tries too hard, Perth is quiet, I can't really remember Queensland and Adelaide, well, meh.
