    Alaska, wow. Hmm, what do I know about Alaska ... well, it snows there, a lot. I've never seen snow in real life, not even on top of mountains. Whenever I've been down Taranaki or Ruapehu way, the mountains have been fogged over. Ah well, one day.

    I also know that the English sold Alaska to the United States, which some Canadian people thought was a betrayal. The US should give it back one of these days ;)

    I guess you also have Eskimos, wolves and bears in Alaska. I must visit someday :D

    I think (although not 100% sure) you'll find it was the Russians who sold Alaska to the US. :)

    Ah, yes, in 1867 for 7.2 million according to encylopedia.com. Not bad, considering the size of it.

    Howdy Mace, welcome to the world of sheep and rugby, where every other sentence includes the words 'mate', 'true' or 'sweet.'

    I'm amused by the fact that a foreigner to our boards says howdy and we roll through a history lesson of his homeland, one he probably knows.

    :D

    Ive never seen an Inuet. (Eskimo ;) ) [face_plain]

    "well, it snows there, a lot. I've never seen snow in real life"
    -only snows in the winter and part of spring.
    it has been a very late snow year this year...
    seems like only Willow and up north have a some.

    "I guess you also have Eskimos, wolves and bears in Alaska."

    Once you getout of the more populated areas like Anchorage/Eagle River...yeah.


    "so what is new in ALASKA?"
    "Electricity."

    We have had Electricity as long as anyone else has ;)

    And Eskimos are up NORTH NORTH, im in Southcentral Alaska.

    And moose are the most common wild Animal (it seems) In Anchorage. ;)
    In fact, more moose have been killed by cars, than hunters ;)

    Not a great statistical example, hunters should know to get out of the way of an on-coming car. :p
