Wow, exciting life you lead there, lawman. Every riveting answer you provide at the stroke of midnight is either none, no one, nothing or nowhere.

Study abroad was an amazing experience I'm glad I took advantage of--in high school and in college.

Would love to go to South Asia for econ if I could sign up one more time, or to China for public health, or to any west African francophone country to become fluent en français.

Honestly, I'd go anywhere for a good opportunity.

The world is an excellent place.

Hoxie, Ks. Spent a week in jail there one night. Damn mattress was full of crabs. Crabs hell, them critters were big as lobsters. I'd like to go back to fumigate that rat hole. At least I had a private room. Cage. Cell . . .

The Peoples Republic of Bangladesh. I knew a young man back in the '70's who was a Political Science major from there. Told him it sounded like he was on a suicide mission, but he made his country sound interesting. I would like to know if he made it in politics.

side note: He transferred to KU from a Texas college. He said the cowboys used to beat him up and call him an "effing Iranian". He also said Texas was more dangerous than his home country and he felt safe in Lawrence. Put a mark up on the wall for Larryville for that.

Lemon grass can be used as a flavoring for an herbal smoking mixture. There is no reason to believe it will make you high.

I studied in Florence, Italy. It was expensive. I will be paying off those student loans for eleventy billion years.

I'm impressed! I don't think BABBOY is, but he's back wearing his cranky pants today.

Thanks to Professor Kozma's crazy-intense classes at KU I can now decipher an Italian wine label, correctly pair pasta and sauce and smh at those who pronounce it broo-shet-ah instead of broo-sket-ah.

Guess I better get the mowing done. Don't look like the little woman is gonna do it.

If I could study a broad anywhere it would be Christina Hendricks (a broad) on the island of Corfu (Greece). Do I really need to say why? OK, she is as beautiful (and hot) as Corfu is.

I've heard a lot about this area called New Jersey, this could be a fun place to study.

Having almost 3 decades with a feminist, on her scale the word 'broad' only deserves a hard poke with index finger.

Serious words or phrases to watch out for........anything with women's work attached, add the adjective cute to chick and there will be blood.

bevy 4 years, 1 month ago

Ireland - my ancestors came from there and it seems like it would be beautiful, fun and entertaining. Like any good broad should be!

England. I'm an athiest and it is naturally an interesting place to study.

Scott Morgan 4 years, 1 month ago

England is seeped in religion Beatrice? Seriously I would love to spend a few months roaming around Wales.

beatrice 4 years, 1 month ago

Yes, I am aware. See the original responses. I just find throwing in religion on random questions to be, well, random.

My nephew went to France this summer. The highlight was getting to go to London and eating at Chipotle. Kids these days. Could have had some thin pancakes in France.

It's Internet speak for "shake my head."

My general rule of thumb is that I would like to see more of the US first before going abroad.

But otherwise, I would love to visit Ireland and Canada. Or just finished watching a LOTR marathon. So New Zealand would be a good idea too.

Somalia. What could be more useful than seeing what the consequence of non-government would be? Into the pirates' den!
