New York, iirc? Yeah I imagine it'd be proper touristy haha. Most of our cities are like that too (as well as the particularly scenic places) but I'd not exactly say tourists are... cute. Although the Europeans are usually nice!
Nope! Niagara Falls City in Toronto. =P

I could, but I thought that'd mean even less to an American. And that's what I meant - it's not pleasant. At all, haha.

I... suppose so, thinking about it. Although I'm running pretty dry on other places called "pool" right now aside from Blackpool and... uh... yeah, I'm out.

You're a lucky man if Niagra Falls is "nothing new" to you. @___@

My own accent's a boring one in my opinion, but to most of you, I probably sound like I came straight of the movie Fargo, even though I think my own accent is closer to that featured by the non-Schwarzenegger characters in Jingle All the Way.

Wait, there's a Niagara Falls City in Toronto proper? I am 100% confused now. Did you mean Canada? I've been meaning to ask that sooner but been too busy lifting boxes, driving, or working to post. it's been bugging me as a geography geek

in the subject of mosquitoes, it was really humid last night when I was at school. I got bitten three different times by mosquitoes, before, during break, and after class. S___S We don't usually get them here, but since we had a few monsoonal thunderstorms pass by here they can get pretty common.

OMG it's so weird that you mention this because I got bit on the way to class today. We had a ton of rain last night and they were swarming pretty bad. Now I am itching like crazy.

Mosquito bites are extremely annoying, they itch the hell out of you and if you do anything to it, it just gets even bigger. I get a lot of schadenfreude whenever I kill a mosquito and blood comes out of it.

I hate mosquitoes. They're awful in the summer. :( Going outside in the humidity really sucks!

Yeah mosquito bites are bad and for me at least, I never notice until after the bite that I had been bitten usually. I can't remember how many times I have started itching all of a sudden and then realize that I have been bitten and be like "wft when did this happen D:"

Same. We also have a pond nearby and that is breeding grounds for them

Pretty sure I've never ever seen a mosquito, let alone get bit by one. Even when I've travelled abroad. Apparently they don't bite certain people... something to do with your blood or something? Don't know if that's true, but I've always joked about having mosquito repellent blood.

The most common people they bite are chubby people and people who sweat a lot. Mosquitoes are attracted to water. So people who live near water or has standing water are also the most common to be bit.

Sir...I wonder about your current location, because not getting bit before is awesome. Also, mosquitoes are generally small so they're hard to see sometimes.

What sorcery is this???

I get bit by mosquitoes all the time, especially in Puerto Rico where they would always swarm me. I guess they like my blood or something because after 1 night my legs were covered in mosquito bites and I had the worst itching sensation ever. :c

Oh goodness THE SCRATCHING. I kept being told that I can't scratch the bites out or else they'll hurt and burn and get worse and stuff. But no, I do not listen. I scratch the hell out of these bites and then eventually they'll turn into horrible scabs. :(

But it's also my fault for not buying any anti-itch lotion.

Haha, apparently mosquitoes just don't like me... which is fine by me!
I've known family members that have been bitten, so... I have no idea. As for when I'm at home, I live in the UK, and I think they're pretty rare here. Like I said, I've never seen one, so they must be!

Maybe they just....don't like your blood? There's gotta be something that makes them not bite you or anything. lmao

Yeah, I think your location probably has a bit to do with it. Here in America we have no shortage of them :[

You're one of the lucky ones xD They're everywhere in Puerto Rico, and the thing is that they're so small that you can barely see them and they bite in swarms. Bring lots of repellent if traveling there.
