If a person could visit no more than one country outside the United States, what would be most recommended? (It doesn't have to be a "country.")
That really all depends on the person OP.
One person may love Italy, another may hate it, but instead love India. Someone else may be more fond of New Zealand or Japan.
There is no one answer.
Why do you ask about a country, OP, then write that it doesn't have to be a country? What does that mean?
If you're traveling to another country for the first time...good for you! Travel gives us a better insight into our lives and helps round us out as a person. It is a sad fact that all too many Americans never travel and when they do, they aren't interested in learning about other cultures but instead spend all of their time finding reasons to shout "USA the best" in their teeny heads while doling out Euros in MacDonalds donned in sweats and bulging out of their stained tee-shirts.
Live, learn, develop.
Egland and Spain are two of my favorites. I enjoyed France, but only stayed in Paris. Would probably have enjoyed it more if I had been able to travel to some other regions.
Traveling allows you to develop pretentious utterances and to broadly stereotype the residents of your home country as if you no longer live there.
Go for it!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
