    I'm here in Port-aux-Fran├žais, Archipel de Kerguelen, where it's windy and overcast. I use my VPN to make you think I'm in the USA.

    Peregrinus: GMT -5

    Suffers from insomnia and the predilection to surf in small bits during the day as well, so liable to post at just about any time of the day or night.

    So you're on a scientific station on an island in the Antarctic? That's awesome.

    It would be. You'd have the beaches all to yourself.

    So you were just joshing us? If so, I think you are now obligated to make amends by arranging to spend next year on that island :).

    A year is a small eternity on Kerguelen. Gender ratio there is not favorable. But if you visit, you'll be shown a good time fishing.

    I was going to say, sign me up for a year. That is, until I saw the second picture. :) That ratio doesn't look good at all.

    Not even close. I'm stowed abord a cloaked Klingon Warship circling the planet of Uranus. I know what your going to ask. "Does Uranus have Klingons?" Well, it's a fair question, so I included a spy photograph as proof:

    I'm in Ft. Worth Texas. Maybe we can add location under our avatars?
    Why the drama? Those posts aren't rude. Maybe you're having a bad day. Everyone is entitled to one of those. Hope you get better soon.

    hi Sarah

    I will add you in the list if I can edit it again, but today it's not the possibility to do this. I think that your town is in the green zone, which is GMT -7, is this correct?

    sorry if I was wrong, they seemed rude.

    All the people who've replied after Tuesday,

    I can't add you in our list because there isn't the possibility to edit my own post with the map now :(

    in addition I wanted to change the yellow because it's difficult to read. I'm fed up with this.

    No i didn't have a bad day, it's rude as well that you have decided this without ask me and then conclude that you are correct when you are NOT. Hope YOU get better soon and also that you will shut up with your incorrect judegments.

    In addtion cainntear has confirmed that his Italian comment had rude words. anyway, you have written 3 posts and your 3rd was for judge me. Probably you are other person with this fake "Sarah" account.

    Ok, the rude posts by big dog and cainntear were not terrible, not so bad or offensive at all, only I didn;t like them on my nice world clock's thread BUT the main problem is that the editing is banned on polydog. I can't update the map's list or adapt the yellow which is illegible.
