Hi everyone,

Slightly odd question, perhaps, but does anybody have any idea what is the highest latitude from which anyone has ever posted to the Acaeum?

Not to be confused with the "highest" post, of course, which was probably made by maxwell... :P

Many thanks,
Stephen

Closer to 58 than 57 here: would be around about the middle of Hudson's Bay.
(~280+ miles (due) North of Al, unless Scotland has shrunk even more in the rain... :P Sunset 9.45pm, sunrise 4.30am)

Oslo, Helsinki or Anchorage are a few degrees further North... *looks for any sign of list members*

No sign of any Frost Giants, though.

*checks*. almost spot-on the 51 line...

...Hoping we'll all run off to the North Pole to claim the "honors", or something like that! ;))

*lol*. Would have been about the right time, too... :D

Hey, ho! Even leaving a sniper 'bot in place whilst I was "away" had no effect, anyhow. :P

My sincerest apologies, but it was YOUR research that got me interested...  :D  :D  :D

Erm, my somewhat truncated research, since I didn't manage to pick up an extra copy of each to compare printing points to determine whether they're constant or not. ;)
Trust you've a few spare sets kicking around to compare against, too. *jk*. (Or, better, can grab a hold of someone who has...).

btw. check out the stock lists to see what I mean about being an easy ID/cross-check point. :)

I am at latitude 61(southcentral alaska) so it might be me! If someone is higher I might have to drive up to the north slope and post there that would put me way up there!!!! Love Alaska I have world class King and Silver salmon fishing as welll as world class trout practically right in my back yard!

Trout fishing makes the world go 'round. I'm taking my two oldest, 7 and 9, on a weekend trip in June to hit the trout streams up north (I live in the south part of Michigan and all of our good trout fishing is at least three hours north of here). Probably the number one reason I can't move south...bass fishing just is not the same.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I agree completely.  But I have to drive 14 hours to Colorado just to get in some really good trout fishing.  Fishing in Texas just isnt the same.  Nothing like strapping on a set of waders, grabbing your fly rod, and trudging into the cold, rushing waters of the Rio Grande at 6 a.m.  Rainbow trout....breakfast of champions.  :mrgreen:

Are you going to put us out of our misery and tell us why the interest?

In fact, whilst we're at it:
Who lives furthest south?
Who's the oldest?
Who's the youngest?
Who's the tallest?
Who's the shortest?
Who's gives?  :wink:

Or - who has actually assaulted someone or been assaulted by someone as a result of ebay? Now *that's* a good question!

Assumes Dr. Evil pose, complete with raised hairless eyebrow, and snears "RrriiiiighT..."

Nah, not much to it, really.  I'm about to head north, far north, and was thinking of trying to post if I can find a connection up there. Maybe even leave a d20 in the REAL glacial rift of the Frost Giant Jarl.  Hey, that would be a cool pic to post!  I'm gonna try to do that!

We have world class fishing (bow river) right out my back door.

Does 6 feet 4 inches qualify me for the tallest award?  
I don't qualify for any of the other measures.  
How about biggest shoe size?  
Longest middle finger?  
Longest middle name?

or back on track somewhat...

Been to the most GenCons?
Owns the most dice?
Owns the most miniatures?  Gotta be stormber, I think.
Has gamed with Gygax or other dignitaries?

Your picture icon doesn't do justice to your height - you don't look a bit over 3 inches !!

Good last question btw - "has anyone gamed with Gygax"

BJS

PS - Stephen - The Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl is in Norway, not Alaska/Canada, so you'd have to move east a bit as well.

I've not gamed with him, but I've talked with him before regarding the inconsequentials, like football.  Does that help?
