Research assignment - Friday theme

The assignment is to find some information on a random city or town and report back to the BB with any interesting facts you find. The point of this is to learn more about life and four wheeling in other places.

Required tools:
- computer
- internet access
- map(can be regional, national or international, no city maps)
- one uncooked grain of rice (or similar size and shape object)
- felt pen (colour of your choice)

Here is how the game goes:

- Take your grain of rice and colour one end of it with your felt pen.
- Spread your map out on the floor and stand beside the map.
- With the rice in your outstretched hand hold it over the map. Close your eyes and release the rice.
- Find the name of the city or town on the map that is nearest to the coloured end of your grain of rice,(if your grain of rice lands pointing at your own hometown try again.)
- Search the internet to find interesting trivia and four wheeling information about that town.
- Report back to the BB what you found out about your random rice picked town.

It isn't. I'll explain it in easier terms for you. Take that booger that you have on the end of your finger and drop it onto a map. Wherever the pointy part lands find out about that town.

my elf with the balm and in her straight slit before I screwed the cab driver. It did feel soooooo real wonderful.
Take out the spelling and grammatical errors and it stills is sooo very shocking. Is an elf some sort of relation to a dwarf for PBB purposes?

Well, G-man, no that's not correct either . . . .

at least based on the talk I had with her at the casino where she was performing "Digital Homage", her latest one pump - release, at . . .

She told me her name after I mention the PBB and YOU! Boy did she have some NAIL biting stories to tell!?

Wouldn't it be MORE fun, to GO there, and to gain access to the town by a method OTHER than the main highways? Like crossing a frozen lake to get there, or winching yourself to the top of the city water tower, to take pictures, and then POST them here?
