Heh, Seattle is very Darwinist...or other cities around there are...my old school I'm ninth grade had one of the highest pregnancy rates in the country.

Well we saw the North, which is traditionally heavily industrial. The south would have been interesting to say the least. The very Christian, very conservative, population would have clashed with the usefulness of Darwinist fabs for use in agriculture and raising animals. The thing with Italy, tho, is that you'd think in their universe the terms of the deal would have included being a Clanker state. At the most it would have been Clankinist, not full Darwinist. Especially with the Vatican being located within Italy.

Well, aside from THAT...our origins are very darwinist are they not? Lumber and agriculture. Lots of uses for fabrications. And then comes the Clanker side, for Boeing and our shipyards and fisheries...and so begins the wonder of symbiosis like the Japanese have.
And then, come 1910, Dr. Hasley sets up base in what is now Discovery Park.

I'd be neck deep in a long-running debate over the subject. You can't go anywhere without being less than a stone's throw from a farm or ranch around here, and can't go a hundred yards without seeing a church.

Origins, as in the 1500s? definitely not...We were extremely religious. Even if there was no such thing as machines back then...people thought it was a sin for girls to wear anything that came above their ankles.

And that's what its like in Utah, I would see like ten churches in one small town like, umm...Ballard. Even though that's technically not a town...

I love how my town is literally one letter removed from yours. But I doubt the Texas Taliban, er Southern Baptists, would like Darwinism very much.

I doubt that too, aye. And by origins I meant Seattle's, in the 1800s. The Denny Party and such.
Heh. Ballard. Actually, Ballard joined up with Seattle in 1914 or so...meaning that, in DF, there are a LOT of angry people...

I can imagine with all the fuss people around here put up over a display of the Nativity scene.

Ohh, Yes. I just think the whole country should be clanker...too many religions would make it impossible to be Darwinist. And Independent Fundamental Baptists too.

I don't live there...I said that for Straif's benefit cause I'm assuming he lives there, by posting the Ballard high book club on his sig. I live a few miles away though.

The closest big city to me is Dallas (two hours away), but I could write that companion piece down here. There used to be a military base in the area some years ago.

Find out when it started up and when it closed down. Could have DF stop there on their way back from Mexico.
Where do you live? I was in Houston in 2004.

Ohh, especially the one that they took out of the White House. People were furious!

I have actually never heard of that town? Or district of Seattle? I don't even know...And I don't know that much about Seattle's history, sadily. except the basic stuff like the big fire and the Indians...

I just passed by I10...I think it was, in July

Ballard was a seperate city until about 1914 when it was annexed.

I live near the small town of Bullard, which is outside the city of Tyler. And that base may have actually been a Confederate Prison Camp and not an actual military base. Oops.
