Description: If You Feel Like Sharing

Well, with so many new memebrs lately, I thought it might be good for everyone who wants to, to state where they're from and what time zone they're in. I think it's neat knowing how many different countrties are represented here now.
So, I'm Darryl Stewart and I'm in Kitimat, British Columbia, Canada, which puts me in the Pacific Time Zone (GMT - 8 hours).
You don't have to be as detailed as I was, of course. Just share whatever you're comfortable with. :)

I'm in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia which is Australian Eastern Standard Time GMT+10 (but we're currently in Daylight Savings which is Australian Eastern Daylight Time GMT+11).
Darryl The Hitman - February 4, 2008 07:39 AM (GMT)
So you're 19 hours ahead of me which means it's... 6:40 Pm or so on Monday night for you?

So, you'd be almost done with RAW---if RAW had taken place yet. You have to wait til Wednesday for it, right?
Dark Lord - February 4, 2008 08:37 AM (GMT)
Yep. The first screening of Raw is at 3:30pm Wednesday, ECW at 3:30pm Thursday and Smackdown at 3:30pm on Friday.
So we actually get Smackdown before anyone else. :D
Darryl The Hitman - February 4, 2008 08:40 AM (GMT)
You also get ECW long before Canada does (Midnight in each time zone though with satellite, I can see it at 8)

I, along with others here, am from Mason City, Iowa, which is in the Central time zone.
liviya leigh - February 5, 2008 01:41 AM (GMT)
I'm from Indiana. A small town south of Indianapolis. I guess I am in the EST zone cause I'm not in the same zone as QT. Damn daylight savings time has me all the fuck confused.
they still call me phil - February 5, 2008 04:12 PM (GMT)

J.D. rollin' in KC. Okay, so it's not quite. I live in Independence, Missouri. We're known for crystal meth and bad schools. Central Time(-6 GMT)

I was born in Concord, NH. I grew up 20 minutes away from there in Allenstown, NH. And now I live in Concord, NH again.
Darryl The Hitman - February 7, 2008 03:34 AM (GMT)
How close is that to Nashua where I think HHH is from?
samoarowe - February 7, 2008 03:01 PM (GMT)
About 45 minutes.
I also hear that HHH still owns a mansion in Bedford, NH, which is about 20 minutes from my apartment if you take the highway.
When Backlash tickets went on sale in Manchester back in 2005, Triple H came to the arena and brought pizza to the fans who were camping out overnight to get front row. I wish I'd been there.
Hellsinger - February 10, 2008 05:32 AM (GMT)
Mason City IA, same as QT
Haruki - February 17, 2008 08:12 PM (GMT)
I'm from Oslo, Norway. gmt+1
I am lousy at the sleep thing, and most weekends you'll find me online at the oddest hours. During the week you'll find me whenever I manage to sneak online at work ;)
Darryl The Hitman - February 17, 2008 08:15 PM (GMT)
Is Oslo the capital of Norway? I think it is but I'm trying to remember geography from school and that never was my strong suit.

Yes it is, but some Americans has at times asked me wich state Norway is in, so your not the worst one out there regarding geography :)

Northeastern Indiana state near the city of Fort Wayne, just 22 miles south.

I am originally from a border town called Laredo,Tx.
on the border with Mexico for those of you that dont know where Texas is. lol
but have been living in San Antonio, Tx. for about 3 years now.
I like it there is more to do around here it is a bigger city and home to the NBA champion San Antonio Spurs.
Darryl The Hitman - June 14, 2010 02:36 AM (GMT)
And it's also home to Shawn Michaels--I think it used to be home to Stone Cold Steve Austin as well but he lives in L.A. now that he's gone Hollywood.
diehardlouie77 - June 14, 2010 10:11 PM (GMT)
I'm from Bolton, a town near Manchester in the UK.
Darryl The Hitman - June 15, 2010 03:48 AM (GMT)
All I really know about Manchester is that it's where Coronation Street is filmed, if I'm not mistaken. I'm very pleased to have a British person here as I watch a lot of British telly and always have done. You may want to check out the Doctor Who and Red Dwarf threads in Quadruple Tree's Forest.
Dark Lord - June 15, 2010 08:39 AM (GMT)
My Mum was from Manchester.
Darryl The Hitman - June 15, 2010 04:06 PM (GMT)
Oh! You've probably told us that at some point over the years and I've forgotten so my apologies, DL.
diehardlouie77 - June 15, 2010 09:07 PM (GMT)
Where abouts in manchester is your mum from darklord?
Dark Lord - June 16, 2010 10:21 AM (GMT)
No idea, but not too far from Old Trafford, because she used to walk past it on the way to and from school every day.
Darryl The Hitman - June 17, 2010 02:55 AM (GMT)
That's where Man. United play, right?
Dark Lord - June 17, 2010 07:51 AM (GMT)

I've learned two things about ted in relation to this thread--he lives in Canberra and, according to him, Melbourne is the superior city.
Dark Lord - June 17, 2010 08:01 AM (GMT)
diehardlouie77 - June 17, 2010 09:47 PM (GMT)
I used to work near Old Trafford.
Its a small world.
UncannyValley - September 23, 2010 07:50 PM (GMT)
lolz Mason City, IA, my grandparents used to live not too far from there.
I myself am from Rochester, Minnesota, USA. Currently I live in a suburb of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/ St. Paul for the uninformed)
Darryl The Hitman - September 23, 2010 08:17 PM (GMT)
I wish MC would come back because you and he would probably have a lot in common--QT and Hellsinger are from that area as well. QT has moved somewhere else to go to school and I'm unsure if Hells is still in Mason City or not.
UncannyValley - September 23, 2010 08:34 PM (GMT)
I never seem to end up posting online with people who live nearby. With the exception of the old forum i used to post on that introduced me to my roommate. Even there, most of my posting friends lived in, like, Texas.
Darryl The Hitman - September 23, 2010 08:42 PM (GMT)
yeah I've tried several times to get people I know in town to post here but it never seems to work.
