Which foreign country would you like to visit and what's your reason?
China! Went two years ago. I absolutely loved it.
Bhutan. I've been to China and didn't enjoy it. I admit that it may have been because I spent mist of the time in the cities. If I were to go back it would be to spend time away from the cities.
The Chinese should be studied, not visited.
Why, R2? They're inscrutable.
Horrible, horrible people. Spent way too much time there.
Vietnam. So many interesting cultures and history. Of course, as an American, I would feel a little odd and guilty.
India, just for the experience.
Germany because they're simply better
Guilty about what r5? Because the Americans were on the side that lost the civil war?
OP = Communist rice queen.
I'd like to visit Nauru. I was on eBay and they Nauru'd a lot of people.
R11 = homocon douchebag
OP, what was it about China that you 'loved'?
Hong Kong - I've seen it in movies and read about it in novels. I want to see it in person, go to the races, have suits made, and eat dim sum out on the boats.
Because Americans killed several MILLION of them R10 and there was no civil war before we stepped in.
The total death toll for all parties to the Vietnam War was approximately 1,776,000. While we wish that there had been no war and that no one had died at all, we can still deduce that the U.S. did not kill millions of Vietnamese.
"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...
