Kinda ironic that we're displaying this on Palm Sunday. -- (WT-en) Sapphire(Talk) • 00:18, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

Nope, it's non-commercial. Plus, I'd feel horrible about mocking a wedding. -- (WT-en) Sapphire(Talk) • 02:22, 1 April 2007 (EDT)
Commercial point taken, but mocking their wedding? They got married at Disneyland for fuck's sake, and took their wedding pictures in front of the golden arches! I'm sure we wouldn't be the first ;) – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 15:33, 1 April 2007 (EDT)
Ok, you've got me there. -- (WT-en) Sapphire(Talk) • 15:44, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

Oi cacahuate, mind your language. You shouldn't be using f*** words around here. (WT-en) Upamanyuwikivoyage( Talk )( (WT-en) Travel ) • 07:14, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
Why the fuck not? Ok sorry, I'll be good from now on... – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 11:16, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
You'd better be. My opinion of you has already gone down drastically. Please do not curse in public, especially when I'm around. But then I presume it's acceptable in America. But try to bear in mind the fact that I
  • am 13 years old
  • am Indian
  • am from Bengal, where abusive language has a no-tolerance policy associated with it
  • myself loathe abusive language and people who use it

Well, hopefully you'll forgive me, there's lots more to my personality than the words I occasionally use. At least your getting some insight into American culture. Of course there are people who are offended by it here too, but it's not as harsh as it might sound to you over there. Prepare yourself when you come to California, because you'll be hearing it all the time :) – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 00:16, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

DEINDENTING. I heard that San Francisco's real nice though. My dad was at LA (university) but didn't seem to like it much. (WT-en) Upamanyuwikivoyage( Talk )( (WT-en) Travel ) • 00:23, 14 April 2007 (EDT)

Myer Centre[edit]

I'd just like to reiterate, I was gassed not one, but 3 TIMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you're all listening. – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 15:36, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

Yeah, and the only sleep options are in Sihanoukville. -- (WT-en) Sapphire(Talk) • 15:53, 1 April 2007 (EDT)
I feel like you're not taking me seriously Sapphire. Do you know what it feels like to be violated like that, not one but 3 TIMES???? You wanna know what else? I went there for lunch today and caught a man trying to spike my drink, which would've made it FOUR times had I not caught him!!!! That place is CRAZY!!!!!! Anyway, I'm sure it won't happen again, do you wanna meet there for dinner tonight? I love meeting other Wikivoyageer's. And Sapphire is my favorite color... – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 16:00, 1 April 2007 (EDT)
Durka. Durka? Durka One Star Bandit. Durka durka Sihanoukville. -- (WT-en) Sapphire(Talk) • 16:22, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

If you've been drink spiked four times there too it truly shows how crime ridden this place is!

I know, right? Gosh, you and I have so much in common! I feel like you're my long lost brother/sister/tranny. If you're ever in LA let me know, I'd love to compare gassing stories with you over a cup of coffee at the Beverly Center (I've only been gassed once there, so I think we're likely to survive). Anyway, xoxo – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 01:56, 28 April 2007 (EDT)

location image...[edit]

sorry, i reverted it thinking you had replaced the flag, but then realized it was just an addition. Where the hell is that image anyway, is that a prison? – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 23:23, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

Well, that looks more like the FBI hq.s if you ask me (WT-en) Upamanyuwikivoyage( Talk )( (WT-en) Travel ) • 08:08, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
Regardless, the image was uploaded without a license and looks suspiciously like a copyvio, so it will probably have to be deleted. - (WT-en) Todd VerBeek 08:37, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
Well, I hadn't realized that. But, yeah, the uploader hadn't specified a license. Pity, I like the image :( (WT-en) Upamanyuwikivoyage( Talk )( (WT-en) Travel ) • 09:37, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

Why is the official language of Hell British English. Should be Hebrew, right? And why does the British English link to Thai phrasebook? Part of the joke? (WT-en) Upamanyuwikivoyage( Talk )( (WT-en) Travel ) • 09:37, 16 April 2007 (EDT)

I picked British English, partly because I don't think it would really offend anyone, whereas Hebrew would be a little more iffy. And partly because I like to make fun of British English... they invented the language, but Americans perfected it. – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 16:41, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
Last American I know off that could speak English was Bill Cosby ;) --(WT-en) NJR_ZA 16:51, 16 April 2007 (EDT)
Precisely. BTW, the Am.s did not perfect the language, they distorted it. (WT-en) Upamanyuwikivoyage( Talk )( (WT-en) Travel ) • 05:28, 17 April 2007 (EDT)
perfected / distorted, tomaayyyto / tomaaahhhhto, don't get so hung up on semantics Upamanyu – (WT-en) cacahuate talk 16:37, 18 April 2007 (EDT)
For once, I've got to confess that I prefer the latter (WT-en) Upamanyuwikivoyage( Talk )( (WT-en) Travel ) •

But I prefer BritEng any day. (WT-en) Upamanyuwikivoyage( Talk )( (WT-en) Travel ) • 07:22, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
