Thread: Where are you all from?????
<<           >>
This is pretty cool though. I would guess that everything west of the Brandywine broke off and became the British Isles. South Gondor and Mordor would drift west and then north to make up all or part of the Iberian Peninsula.
Hmmm... actually there are hundreds of ways you can look at the maps and divide middle earth into modern Europe. Clearly, the geography has changed substantially. I wonder if Tolkien had a definite idea of what would become what as the ages wore on...
i would, but im tired and cant do much of nethin rite now.
New York can't be Valinor. Valinor is in another dimension, and only accessable using elvish magic.
Yeah, but it wasn't a bad joke...
and tom... why the **** do you think im lookin down there!
That's the point Gimli.
And what kinda subject is this anyway??
ok, wat bout N. America? i mean, isnt nebody gonna try 2 figure out wat this continent corresponds 2 in ME?
Numenor sounds good. i dont think we'll suffer the same fate as the numenoreans!
Hey,I didn't see that! (****!) tell me about it!
Hang on a sec. I'm from Belgium. Where would that be? Neverland? Mordor? The Lonely Mountain?
My crystal bulb says....hmmmm....somewhere round Viniac/Baranduin mouths.(I just made that up so you'd better check

Difficult.........Born in Germany, moved to Venezuela as a child, one year ago returned to Germany.....Let me see....In heart I´m venezuelian but officially I´m german.Yes that sounds good.
I told my Icelandic friends about this site and they are now members here on P-T.
I saw somebody from canada....,i would love to know it some day...,maybe to live in... ...or at least to play on the snow once.....
I am from Canada. At the moment it is quite cold and we have lots and lots of snow.
Hey Thingol77 I´ve never been to Mexico but I´m from Venezuela, it´s cool to see another latino up here.
Most of the older members already know, but for the benefit of newer members who haven't had time to plough through all the posts, I'm from the swamps of Lincolnshire/Norfolk in England.
The lovely island of Singapore, where it's hot and humid, and where you can hardly spot on the atlas... and where the DVDs are outrageously expensive...
Thankfully(yet strangly) I am joining the army soon so who knows where I will be months from now.
I am however form Bury in Lancashire which is in the Penine moors (the back bone of the United Kingdom)
Bury is actually the home to many inventors or inventions.
Black Puddings (yuk), Sir Robert Peel (Inventor of the police and once prime minister of the UK), The inventor of the Torpedo (he invented it in Sweden though), Reebok and the first holographic machine (invented by my dad for a company called Markem systems). were also famous for inbredding in parts of Bury (cough Heywood).
we have a market that has been in existence since the fourteenth centuary and we are the largest growing place outside of London. It is also home to the regiment that Tokien served in during world war one ,the Lancashire Fusilliers, who also are responsible for building and painting one of the most famous buildings on the planet, the White House.
- What about 2nd breakfast??

Look forward to visiting here in future!
Ishayala, you complete our continent list. We now have actively posting members on every continent save Antarctica (the penguins are really irked- they haven't got broadband yet).
To the best of my knowledge (which is admittedly limited) you are our only member residing in South America.
Still we have a good helf service (pffff haw haw haw)
Some of the fan writings made me do the nose-trick with my coffee...
Do you mean that you woke up to find your nose in your coffee? Or is there a different nose trick?
Welcome to PT, enjoy our friendly relaxed and terribly different attitude, glad you like it here, and I look forward to chatting with you more.
My nose trick involves the curious effect caused by taking gargle of coffee/tea/wine/porridge etc and simultaneously reading/hearing something funny. Liquid travels north under great pressure. I'm specifically thinking of the "Council of Elrond" so I must thank you kindly for good larf and splattered keyboard.
Porridge def. not advised. Painful.
Expense of DVD's... I heard a good gag about this time last year on a Radio 4 comedy show. "DVDs: disappointing, very dear". Think it was The Now Show, when they were running a spoof "LOTR" that was hysterical, (so long as you find the Quest of the Single European Ring hysterical...)
Cheers and look forward to future chats too.
Hello to all the penguins on the dial-up modems, go borrow some Eskimo broadband, or is that the wrong continent....?
Me my self. I'm 14 years old an live in Iceland
(excuse my english, i am not so good)
Alle dere andre er løkskaller!
Llevo varios años en un colegio bilingue, pero todavia me falta por aprender.
No creo que el mio sea mejor
But even though we could talk Spanish here, lets better talk in English, it would be unfair to the others.
