    That's my shitty dorm, lolz

    I will maybe take pictures of things later.

    My dorm rocks your dorm in the face. 47C>McBain.


    It depresses me so much that I avoided it all school year until yesterday... and did badly at school because of it. Now that I have broken the seal, I am going to live here for the rest of the year.

    D:

    I recommend the upper mezzanine of the Milstein collection on the third floor. Just be aware, people often leave their shit all over the tables. Especially those damn grad students. Do what I do, follow university policy and move that shit out of the way! For great Dolemite. And yes, I too am up way too late. Fucking problem set (no, I didn't start at 12 >.>) has devolved into an 11 page gangrape.

    doorway.jpg

    That is my overpriced, underfurnished building. It's pretty nice, but there is no way in hell my room is in condition to be photographed.

    Oh, why hello there fellow student.

    I almost lived in an RA suite in Ruggles, but I'm glad I'm in McBain because the majority of my friends live here and I am lazy and enjoy that convenience. It is, however, quite distracting.

    I love in southern England in a little nowhere town called Shaftesbury, which looks like this
    shaftesbury-goldhill.jpg

    About ten miles down the road lurks the Medieval City of Salisbury, which has this...
    Salisbury_Cathedral3.jpg
    Spoiled for size, but it really needs to be shown how massive it really is
    salisbury.jpg
    The city also has things just dotted around like this
    salisbury_monument.jpg

    And then we've got this just on the outskirts of the city
    stonehenge.jpg

    Everything feels so damn old around here

    You're missing some pictures of the cinema converted from an old theatre.

    But yeah, it's a great city with an amazing feeling of age full of ancient buildings.

    Ok first my books:

    This is one of my many historical shelves. I mainly interested in Central Asian/South Asian History of Nomadic Hordes. There are also books about China and Stalin. Stalin's life was more interesting the one gives him credit for. There is also a Mythology book and a Sci-fi book. Manga Books are in there as well.
    104_2995.jpg

    Still more Historical books, Vikings, Central Asian and some Sci-fi and my Systems Analyst/Computer programming books. Manga Books exist here too.
    104_2996.jpg

    More random books. Some coding books, books I found in garage sales and my prize book, which I try to live by, "Made in Japan" by Akio Morita. He's been quite the influence on me.
    104_2997.jpg

    More coding books followed by some Science and economics books from courses I took.
    104_2998.jpg

    More Course books, history books and fantasy books. Evermeet Island of the Elves is a cool book.
    104_2999.jpg

    Thats my books.

    My Manga comics are on a shelf by themselves. These are old pics so I already have moved them on to a bigger shelf, but in those pics, they are two rows on the shelves.

    I live in the outskirts of the wonderful city of Philadelphia
    1.PhiladelphiaSkylin-B.KriG.jpg

    Which at the moment looks like this, thanks to the new comcast building going up:
    comcast_uc959.jpg

    The part of town that I live in is Manayunk, which is known for its nightlife, hills, dead end streets and terrible parking:

    also, since we are right on the schuylkill river, often times main street floods. which is great if you own a boat or kayak, but otherwise is a complete traffic/general nightmare

    As you can see, there are lots of airplane miniatures on the shelves. See if you can identify them.

    I live in Houston, Texas. It is a sprawling, smog-ridden, traffic-clogged, urban nightmare. But it is home. And I wuv it.

    Home!
    Going to work!
    trafficql3.png
    Seriously. If you don't like traffic, don't move here.

    Work!
    downtownhouston4aht6.jpg
    This is an old picture, downtown has changed a lot. The building circled in red is my building. I work high up, in the sky!

    The 2 buildings directly across the street, circled in green, are the Enron buildings. They were literally selling the office furniture on the sidewalk when the company went under.

    BUT GOOEY THERE MUST BE OTHER THINGS IN HOUSTON THAN AN APPROXIMATION OF WHERE YOU LIVE, TRAFFIC, AND WHERE YOU WORK.

    You bet your ass there is!

    Baseball!
    imgp1604qu8.jpg

    Rodeos!
    rodeoek2.jpg

    (This is seriously a big deal every year. A ton of people go. I go, even. Especially since I can get box seats through a friend)

    Football!
    texansua5.jpg

    Giants!
    yaomingnarrowweb300x528pi1.jpg

    That's all I got. I'm a 20-something bachelor. What did you expect? Pictures of one of our many fine museums, the sprawling memorial park, one of the several universities or perhaps one of the arts districts? P-SHAW, I say! P-SHAW!

    Sadly, the pinhole that apple calls a "camera" is simply unable to do justice to the stunning architecture of this mall-university-office-tower thing. I'll see if I can borrow my dad's Nikon and get a proper shot tomorrow.

    And this is where I spend most of my time when I'm not at school.

    So I live in Austin. It's a great city, but that doesn't stop me from hoping against hope that I could live in a place like Hangzhou or Scotland. These pics are GISed.

    This is a shot looking north from Town Lake(now Lady Bird Lake) to downtown.

    I live in Stockholm, Sweden. It's our main capital and our biggest city. Compared to an american one though I'm sure we're miniscule.

    There's lots of water in Stockholm, as you can see, and it is actually not horribly polluted either, which I think is great.

    I live in a small suburban part of stockholm called Ã…rsta, which must sound amusing in english.

    and my room, the bathroom has its own hot water tank in the crawlspace below that is NOT hooked into the rest of the house, Yeah being able to do laundry or dishes and still having hot water for a shower. That is my Gi on the king size be that barley fits in the room. but if you have kids and are two large (him tall me fat) active sleepers you too would squish a king into the available space.

    I'm from the Netherlands. And not just the Netherlands, I live in the middle of The Green Heart, every urban planner's wet dream!

    Now, I went cycling through the area yesterday for a project for uni and I took some pictures.

    First thing you'll notice is that the area is surprisingly flat.
    17hollandsekade.jpg

    And not just that, it's also under sealevel
    10waterpijlirenschedeweg.jpg

    That's in centimetres beneath sealevel (Nieuw Amsterdams Peil)

    How did that happen?? Well, there were fens here, but we dug all that away to use it as fuel. Then we built houses on it. That was not very smart:
    27zegveldinklinking.jpg
    A lot of houses in the area have cracks in them etc. But we'll manage. :P Or we'll rebuild, whatever.

    Anyway, pretty buildings, yay

    It really is. I'd never fully understood just how flat The Netherlands is until I was on a short-haul flight from Schiphol to Glasgow in the early morning. Just completely flat in every direction you looked, it was kind of a weird experience because it's such a contrast to what I'm used to.

    The area where Schiphol is situated (Haarlemmermeer) used to be a big lake, situated close to sea, so yeah, no hills. ^^
