  2. Congrats! Soon you'll be looking forward to spending an hour killing it every day
  3. and this explains why bank ATM's have braile on the buttons.
  4. I was surprised the route didn't hit Chicago, as we all know the center of the known universe lives and works there. Wait for the earthquake and you can see both LA and San Andres Fault in the same place...
  5. Be honest: at some point you’ve thought about going on a cross-country road trip, right? Lucky for us, Randy Olson, a doctoral candidate at Michigan State University, has planned the “perfect road trip.” With the aid of a sophisticated algorithm, Olson’s road trip lets anyone, anywhere hit all the landmarks in each of the 48 continental states in the shortest possible route. Just pick the point closest to home, and then drive around the country until you get back to the starting point. Here’s the list of the landmarks along the road trip: 1. Grand Canyon, AZ 2. Bryce Canyon National Park, UT 3. Craters of the Moon National Monument, ID 4. Yellowstone National Park, WY 5. Pikes Peak, CO 6. Carlsbad Caverns National Park, NM 7. The Alamo, TX 8. The Platt Historic District, OK 9. Toltec Mounds, AR 10. Elvis Presley’s Graceland, TN 11. Vicksburg National Military Park, MS 12. French Quarter, New Orleans, LA 13. USS Alabama, AL 14. Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, FL 15. Okefenokee Swamp Park, GA 16. Fort Sumter National Monument, SC 17. Lost World Caverns, WV 18. Wright Brothers National Memorial Visitor Center, NC 19. Mount Vernon, VA 20. White House, Washington, DC 21. Colonial Annapolis Historic District, MD 22. New Castle Historic District, DE 23. Cape May Historic District, NJ 24. Liberty Bell, PA 25. Statue of Liberty, NY 26. The Mark Twain House & Museum, CT 27. The Breakers, RI 28. USS Constitution, MA 29. Acadia National Park, ME 30. Mount Washington Hotel, NH 31. Shelburne Farms, VT 32. Fox Theater, Detroit, MI 33. Spring Grove Cemetery, OH 34. Mammoth Cave National Park, KY 35. West Baden Springs Hotel, IN 36. Abraham Lincoln’s Home, IL 37. Gateway Arch, MO 38. C. W.

  6. Here are the Base XP's before Invention release:
  7. Will be updating this with pre-invention data. Standby...
  8. There are 5,282,939 people in the U.S. with the first name John There are 400,458 people in the U.S. with my last name There are 6,574 people in the U.S. named the same as me. Tripled Kyle's claim to fame
  9. Yes that week is a high cost week. More passengers are able to travel in mid June.
  10. I enjoy cruising. Here is an example of a typical week in June and what you could expect from the three major cruise lines that I've listed: The websites for any cruise line can be found by using google. These are , , and . Prices listed above are per person, so a example on the Royal Caribbean Anthem of the Seas, booking the $2215 Balcony, (x2 is $4430) add the $191 and $96 fees (x2 $574) for a total cost $5004 for one room. Airfare to the port of departure, cost of transportation from airport to the port are additional expenses. Also a good tip is to travel the day prior to your planned cruise, stay in a hotel that provides airport and cruiseport shuttles. OMG! $5000 for a week on a cruise? Ok, let's look at the: Room with a balcony on the ocean. The unlimited food to eat. The nightly comedy clubs and Las Vegas style shows. The transportation to experience tropical islands. The daily room cleaning and nightly turn-down service. Dance clubs, pools, spas, gym, rock climbing walls, heck the Oasis of the Seas offers an ice skating rink on deck 3... Cruise prices change based upon supply and demand. Obviously during school break, spring break, winter break, prices are increased. These prices listed are during June, when most of us could travel. The same ships in October would cost a lot less. Which cruise line would I recommend? They all have their own differences, and even within a cruise line, the ships can be totally different. As a general comment though, Carnival caters to a younger group of passengers, they offer comedy clubs and late night entertainment that isn't always available on other cruises. What about the ports being visited? My favorite by far has been Grand Turk. Get away from the mob of passengers and head on down the beach a bit farther to Jack's Shack. They have a nice beach, beverages, and the jerk chicken bbq is awesome. Cozumel and Nassau are both great ports to explore. Highly recommend a visit to Senor Frogs in Freeport or Nassau Bahamas. The port I've least enjoyed? Jamaica - felt like zombies attacking me to buy crap I didn't need. My recommendation for stateroom choice? I prefer balcony rooms, middle of the ship, near an elevator. The middle of the ship will experience the least rocking motion. We also choose a room near deck 7 or 8, as this is a nice "center of the decks" and everything is either a floor or two above us or below us. The entertainment/theatre is in the front of ships on decks 3-5, and the comedy clubs are usually at the rear of the ship on the same decks. Dining can be tricky if you accept the "predetermined time" that you are assigned. Accepting the "predetermined time" has the benefit of getting to know fellow passengers, and your staff will be the same every meal. There is an alternative "any-time dining" to allow flexibility. Regardless there is ALWAYS food available in the Lido deck dining area, and you will never go hungry. Any questions/comments? Happy to help :-) Ghan
