Except that here I pay $10 to get in rather than getting two beers for free, and that here Eddie Halliwell is spinning excellent music instead of a CD-player playing "Best" of the 70-80-90s.
Oh well. I ended up chatting the night away with a local TA (never met TAs before coming to NYC) and she's really sweet and friendly, so I guess that going was better than staying home and working.


Hmmm sounds better than the Thursday night bar scene here. Tonight really sucked ass. Apparentely Thursday night bar hopping is dying out in the DC metro area I live in. Good thing I bought some barley wine to make up for it.

I've only met one TA ever ... Mebot. And only because my friends think it's funny to "out" me to other TAs because of my obsession with this site. I used to have a rule where I refused to meet people on the internet out of principle because I thought it was abnormal, asocial behaviour. I kept up the whole internet "friends" and then "real" friends angle. I think that mentality is inevitably going the way of the dodo however ... I think it would def be cool to meet up and get sloshed with some polit forum members. Not to talk politics of course, but it's generally more fun to get drunk with intelligent folk .

I used to think that way as well, although to be fair I think that was somewhat rooted in envy that I didn't live somewhere where there were other TAs. I still think that it is very important to have friends from other environments than TA, but it's great to meet someone with the same obsession with music and clubbing. In Denmark I had one (1!) friend who was really into electronica and clubbing, and three years ago he moved to the Netherlands (and now he's applying for a permanent visa to Australia). So, for me at least, it's a relief to be able to converse with friends about how Adam Beyer turned minimal at the end of his set last night, without getting mistakenly sympathic nods from someone who thinks a Beyer is a kind of beer.

Oh, think of all the pretty illusions that will be shattered at such a meet up. One could never think of you as the mad information minister again. Same thing with people posting pics of themselves - what's up with that. I used to imagine Renegade to be somewhat like this

and then he turns out to be looking like this

All the mystique has been destroyed

Seriously, it's really too bad that we're all scattered all over the world, as that makes meet-ups unlikely (but then again, that's probably why this forum is so interesting). However, I'm in NYC at least until the end of August, and if some great DJ is playing in DC, then I'll be going there - even if it is the murder capital of the US. Further, Trancer-X is from this area, and St. Andrew is coming this way in the summer time, so I guess that there's possibilities after all? EDIT: Forgot that Swedes cannot handle alcohol, so if St. Andrew gets here, you should do something else. Take him to the zoo or something.)

It's my experience that getting drunk with intelligent people can be quite terrible, if just one of them is eager to prove that he/she indeed is intelligent/more intelligent than someone/anyone else. It doesn't help if you are indifferent to other people's merits yourself (as a good liberal should be), you still have to suffer the interruptions and sermons of the arguing parties. In relation to my work at the university, I've walked out on quite a few parties because eristic (and loud) dialogue has erupted. Though maybe that's not such a big issue with people employed in more flexible environments, where excellence is recognized and can be rewarded more freely.

It would be huge

By the way, why does your location say "Edinburgh" and you're shown up north far from any city with more than 1,000 inhabitants?

I have a better idea: Seeing how great you are at boasting about your wealth, why don't you just get here ahead of your family? I'm sure paying for a hotel room in NYC for a week would be easily overcome for someone who's so rich

Yeah right, like he could handle that any better

Anyway, the map would be a sort of a nice idea, but it would pretty much have to be a map of the whole world. But if anyone's up to it (hint, Lira, hint) it might look kinda nice. Hm, and I didn't know Dervish lived so far up north...

Cos I'm at uni in Edinburgh but from Wick (8000 ppl I think actually) which is there. I just wanted to be the furthest north UKTA and screw up the map

If we had a big map and genral locations for people it might work. I found a massive map on the net, maybe too big actually, dunno what it'll look like yet but I might try to mock one up. Might be a bitch getting everyones "exact" location.

Monster Map

Supose it's high enough res to add people, then scale down when used for viewing?

^^^^ That map is approximately 107 MB when it's unfolded from jpg in your browsers memory. Maybe you would want to cut it into pieces corresponding to the continents (and maybe even leave out Antarctica). Then have a much smaller map where you could click on a continent, and be taken to the corresponding hi res map?

Let's say that without the almighty ctrl+alt+del, I wouldn't be able to write this post after seeing that map

I'd love to be the person behind that, Dervish, but unfortunately I'm quite short of time
