Also I heard that tourist can't smoke bud over there anymore. You had to have a resident ID or something like that. Is that true?
 Quoting: IWant2Believe

Nope.

That's only near the borders with Germany and Belgium.

Idiot.

2. to or toward this place; hither: Come here.
3. at this point; at this juncture: Here the speaker paused.
4. (used to call attention to some person or thing present, or to what the speaker has, offers, brings, or discovers)

Here is your paycheck.

Relevant Questions:

Why Am I Here?
Why Are We Here?
Why Are We Here On Earth...
What Time Is It Here?

noun
8. this place: It's only a short distance from here.
9. this world; this life; the present: The here and the hereafter are equal mysteries to all people.


adjective
10. (used for emphasis, especially after a noun modified by a demonstrative adjective): this package here.
interjection

Can be confused: hear, here (see synonym note at hear).

I would totally move back to Minneapolis/St. Paul if I could find a job there. The amount of biking facilities in the Twin cities metro are second to none in the U.S.
I truly miss that place

You practically don't have to ride your bike on the streets because they have separated trails everywhere including grade separated bridges so that you don't have to deal with cars most of the time. The only city that even comes close is Portland.

The Netherlands is the most bike friendly country in the world.

For every drivers lane there's a seperate lane for bikes.

Cars > black lane
Bikes > red lane

How hot are your summers? Even if I worked close to where I live, I could never bike to work in the summer because I would arrive drenched in sweat and in need of a new set of clothes!
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC

Between 50 - 70 F humidity 50-60
 Quoting: Dutch Dude 913721


If you bump the humidity up to 80%, that's April weather here in the Southeast. Summer, it's 95-110 F with either 20 or 90% humidity depending on what fronts are coming through. Even then, you still see a few folks biking closer into the cities. We'd get more folks cycling if the roads were set up for it. The few who do risk getting run over, especially on the back roads heading into and out of the city limits. Things aren't even set up well for walking except just in the downtown area and the one pedistrian overpass they built for one of the middle schools.

Plus, there do tend to be a lot of teritorial dogs out in the county that will go after cyclists, walkers, and runners. It's the main reason you typically see walkers on the county back roads either carrying a sawn off broom handle or a pistol, and I've given up trying to go walking. The last time I tried was shortly after we bought our house, and I had two different large dogs start after me before I'd even gotten within fifty yards of their owner's property. That's not even counting coyotes, which have been getting more brash every year, and the odd and end half domesticated dog breed, half coyote pups some morons decide to raise. I'll stick to my collection of workout DVDs and weights, thanks. They're less effective, truth be told, but they're safer than trying to cycle, walk, or run where I happen to live.
