With that sort of background I'll nominate you to run for the Premiership of BC. You should get on well with the rest of Parliament.

I'm in Vancouver, Canada although I was born in England and am aching to return...actually, I rather fancy being an extraterrestrial, that would explain so much....

Wonko the Sane, by any other name, would be as effective.

If Douglas is planning any more "Meaning of Liff" books, some of these places MUST be considered.

Oh, there's still Frankenfood (and the amusing birth-defects that may result from unknown modifications of plants that are untested) to keep us all going, also to mention the hydroponics industry and soya supplies.....assuming there's actually buildings dedicated to growing food instead of planting it for the weather to get at....

While I can neither provide a job for either of you here, or have any likelihood of landing a job there, I'd love to swap cities with you as I don't get out enough and Vancouver is just too familiar to me.....

I feel a bit lonely among all you english-speaking people, but I might as well admit it. I come from a very small scandinavian country that is famous (since it was the only thing it was mentioned for in HGTTG) for it's thermostatic controls. In other words, Denmark.

I don't mind admitting I'm another one from England (Hampshire to be precise). Will ffmike be doing another running total? I have a strong suspicion that there are more English people than the figures suggest (what's interesting about saying you are from England?).

Yet another one from Ye Olde England.
Originally from london moved up north to Shrewsbury after 7 years and now decided to come back down to London for Uni.
If i've counted right this should take the number of researchers who've submitted on here to over 100. nice.

Researcher 93445

Your wish is my slightly-felt desire, or something like that.

As always, for those of us who listed multiple places, I chose the
current residence (assuming I could figure out which one that is),
unless the researcher emphatically specified some other city as
home. If you snuck a response into the conversation somewhere up
above and I missed it it's your own fault.

I've also updated the spiffy & pointless pie chart of these
results over on my home page. Come visit and see. As a bonus, you
can find out how to sign up for the strictly-unofficial H2G2
mailing list there as well.
