    Be sure to not get shot.

    I hate Philadelphia. I've never been North of Philly on the East Coast, but I really can't stand the city... and their airport is ridiculous. They lost my bags and broke my digital camera, but I never filed a claim with the TSA, though I really don't suppose they could care. Pearson airport, in Toronto, takes American money, but American airports won't take Canadian or Mexican money. :eek: It's ridiculous, really.

    It's strange to think you'll probably be tracing my footsteps at some point, when you go to PHL.

    Do you have to have a passport to cross the US-Canadian border in either direction?



    And about the money thing, try working at a gas station next to a University that says you can only accept IDs from the state you're in. Even though Oregon is only like.. an hour away. And for some reason we have Canadians who come here for school.
    I accepted the IDs anyway. Its only fair, I mean, they do have the legal right to buy alcohol afterall.

    Why would one HATE Philadelphia? I can understand having one, or several, bad experiences dealing with the hassle of the incompetant people working in the public service areas, but the city is beautiful and the people here are amazing. :) Maybe you need to come and visit again Orsino, stop by and I'll show you whats up.

    the airport in philly is absolute hell... i missed my flight and had to stay there an extra 4-5 hours and we ventured out into the area near the airport and that wasnt too pleasant either :eek:


    but yeah, i hope you have a great trip :D have you ever been to the US before?

    Haha... That's like me telling you to go camping ITP in Hotlanta, not that I don't have a thing for ATL-- it doesn't have to be spoken for and it's just not going to happen.

    I've been to Philly delivering seafood to markets... I mean, I think I probably see more ridiculous things happen in PHL than I do in DC (Hey, that'd be bizarre if we could say DCA, but then people would be like Dulles? Reagan?... I always call Norfolk ORF, and that just messes people up... worst airport in the united states contest either goes to PHL or O'Hare... it's a toss up)

    Psh, I'm not stubborn in person, you know that.

    It just comes out that way because I think I debate everything way too much. :D

    That and well, I've hit enough potholes to have a general idea that there'll be another one when you least expect it, but I figure that's a given. [​IMG]

    Btw, Philly cat... I don't know who you is, but I'm sorry. It's nothing personal. Philly creeps me out and the guy selling cheesesteaks freaked out when I told him I only had Canadian money, but... you know, Philly has always been pretty bad to me.

    (PS, I catch your drift, but I don't think you'd want to be stuck there or East ATL, somewhere, either. :D And Philly really can be an unkind place.)

    MoonjavaSeed Yeah, Toast!

    all i'm sayin is don't be hatin. :D

    Psh, I know. But you can be honest, joke about things, and still not hate. :D You can also do all three of those at the same time... uh, and not be honest, what have you, but I prefer something a little bit more logical and sweeter than that.

    spooner is done.

    At the moment, you need a passport if you're flying between the two. You can drive over with a DL.

    And it isn't Philly's fault it sucks. It just had the bad luck of being too close to New Jersey.

    You can drive over until 12-31-07... then you'll need a passport.

    Oh, alright. I was wondering, because you're really the only person I know on here from Philly, besides soaringeagle.

    It was absolutely awesome :D

    And Maryanne, we'll need a passport to cross the border by road next year. Right, now it's only for air travel that you need a passport. Right now, you can cross the border with a valid driver's license, a provincial birth certificate etc ..

    Annnd, i loved the city. Of course, San Francisco is way better, but philly is pretty nice. I enjoyed the art museum..
