I just enabled users to assign their own state flair. The CSS has been there for some time now but apparently none of us thought to check the little box that lets users give themselves flair.

So now that that's fixed, get some flair!

So I saw the post about the Baldwin’s being related to the first settlers on the Mayflower and was just googling for info.

It says that the Mayflower arrived in 1620. Ignoring your Cпастический in Chief, are there big plans for the 400 year anniversary in 2020?, or are there cultural sensitivities with native Americans that will mute this milestone?

I got the census paper in the mail and I filled it out on the internet like they said, I am wondering what census is this for? Is it like a early census part for 2020 or something. I thought they did them only every 10 years.

Hey everyone

My fiance and I will be visiting the east coast of USA in the upcomming week on our honeymoon. One of the cities we will visit is Boston, and we can't for the life of us figure out how the system works, when you're using the buses and need to change from say a C/D/E (i assume it's different bus lines) to say a blue line.

On https://www.mbta.com/ I see a local bus one way with cash costs $2. But do I have to pay when I enter C/D/E and AGAIN in the blue line, or do I pay once for the whole trip from place A to place B?

I hope the nice people of you can bear with me. Thanks in advance.

Sincerely a lost Dane ;)

Im planning to travel to Ann Arbor in a couple of years but I wanted to do some research already.

So Im planning to visit Ann Arbor first, this is where my friend lives. Ill be visiting him and Ann Arbor for a couple of days so that will be fine.

After that I want to drive around Michigan for 2 weeks and see all that it has to offer (Chicago, Holland, etc). So this is the tricky part as Ive never been to America before. It may be handy to mention that I will be using a motorcycle to get around.

So what are the DOs and DONTs of visiting Michigan? Are there any good places to sleep, what is the expected cost of sleeping in or next to a big city like Chicago, etc etc etc?

If I missed some important questions please let me know and Ill be happy to answer them.

Thanks!

I am 26 year old male, with a degree in Thermal engineering. I am thinking of moving to USA since i would like explore the world and make some changes in my life. Before applying for a visa i would like to get some background information about my field or what my possibilities are.

I have worked as project manager in heating industry in a quite small company and at the moment i am the manager of a biofuel power station of 32MW in woodworking industry and currently leading team of 10 people. I know a lot on metal fabrication, i can make 3D drawings of constructions, conveyors and other industrial equipment. I can also weld and do plumbing jobs when necessary.

Where should i start looking for jobs and what field should i try? at what state would be best me to try to start searching for? I don't know if my previous experience and education is helpful over there.

I'm having a discussion right now about if "Latin" is considered a race in the US or not. Can you guys help me with that?

Hello people :) I'm sorry for any mistakes in this post, I'm still learning to speak and write English.

Soon me, my father and nine year old sister will be travelling to the US to see more of the world. We'd like to stay somewhere in the area between Seattle, San Francisco and Yellowstone park.

Does any of you know of a nice place to go? We're looking for areas with nice vegetation or nature in general, museums or anything a child might enjoy. Something else entirely is okay too, I'd be glad to hear your suggestions :)

Thanks in advance!

There isn't a direct flight to my destination. The cheapest flight I can find is getting into JFK and leaving from Atlanta. I thought you had to leave from the same state you arrived in.

If not, then when "sovereign citizens" get pulled over, what "legal documents" are they handing over? If not, then why do cops play along? I've been binge watching these sovereign citizens getting pulled over because their arguments are so ridiculous it's actually really entertaining. I love that they are quoting the articles of confederation. I LOVE it. But it's just their common thing is "here are my papers signed by the court blahblahblah"

Hey guys, how are you doing? I’m from Austria and currently in the US. Whenever I enter a store/elevator or everywhere else where I encounter other people everyone asks me “how are you doing?”. Since this phrase of greeting strangers is not commonly used in Europe I’m never really sure what to answer. Do i say “good”? Am I supposed to ask the other person how they are doing? I know that the other person is obviously not interested in how I am doing... I always feel like someone with no soft skills. Thank you for helping me out

Pretty sure all of you've been victim to a emergency or disaster situation at least once in your lifetime. If you have, how did you react? If you haven't, good for you and hope you never have to face such situation in the future.

If you're paranoid like me, what methods have you taken or are taking to prepare yourself for the inevitable?

I'm a software engineer, so I do everything using either my phone or PC e.g: coding apps to do programming exercises, fitness apps for keeping track of my workouts, medicine apps for my daily reminders etc. Although the playstore is filled with spam or useless emergency apps, managed to find one proper emergency prep app which has helped educate me a lot.

Europe here. We believe Americans are GOOD. We believe that this chaos that Donald Trump is dumping the world into is not USA but rather baby boomers (we have them to) clinging to the last vestiges of their power. We will struggle but we will do okay 👌. And we will be there for you.
