    Still I would rather shoot the guy in the ass than between the eyes.

    The guards out here carry them, and they are scary as hell.
    And that's for self defense right? :P Seems more like an assault rifle, you know...for assaulting.
    Get a Luger and shoot with style

    I like to watch it sometimes, imho much less boring than Formula One. If I were to go in the US I would attend a match for sure.

    As a Canadian, I only visit the US now if I absolutely have to (work reasons). I would love to visit the US more, but every time I go they make me feel like I'm some sort of criminal just dying to sneak in and illegally partake in their civil liberties and freedom, take away American jobs, and ruin American culture.

    The culture of the US border patrol--even on the US-Canadian border--is needlessly rude, arrogant, and confrontational. It feels like they are taking glee on being on some sort of power trip. So now I spend more of my dollars in Canada instead.

    There's this competition at the company I work for, in which the prize is a trip to New York, and I just beg that I won't win. I wouldn't go to the US even if I was given a free trip. I love traveling, I've done tons of traveling, but the US is just a no go for me.

    Well to be fair, whenever I go to a non-visa waiver country as an American, I get similar treatment.

    Hell, even in visa waiver countries. Once in a train station in Berlin, I got detained by German police/military or something for 10 minutes because one of the guys I was traveling with had a beard.

    Or a yawing hole in a battered head
    And the scuppers clogged with rotting red
    And there they lay I damn me eyes
    All lookouts clapped on Paradise
    All souls bound just contrarywise, yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!

    Bit of a nerd, but any plans to visit the US have been post-poned due to the lack of a Blizzcon this year

    The US has a TON of nature wonders and tourist attractions. I'm already an American though.

    If I were visiting the US from another country, I'd probably choose to hit the Grand Canyon, then Vegas, Disneyland, Yosemite, San Francisco, Napa Valley, and maybe up to Seattle. If you have time, Austin, TX is a cool city. Chicago too. Mt. Rushmore is worth seeing, and the geysers in Yellowstone are pretty cool. Washington D.C. is a pretty awesome town.

    Really if I were a non-American visiting, I'd just rent a car and take a longass road trip and just see what I run into. There's a lot out there.

    Oh come on, if it was free I wouldn't mind a vacation in the US, I'm not really sure what can you do of interest in New York but a free vacation is a free vacation.
    Or you could also sell the tickets to someone else :P

    New York has the Statue of Liberty, Broadway, the Empire State Building, Times Square, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Wall Street, Fashion stuff if you're into that, among other things that most big cities have.

    Exactly what I would do next time I go. Just take 3-4 weeks off and tour around, Through the westcoast and then the southern states towards Miami. Couple of days relaxing on the beach there and fly back home.

    Now to find the money and time most importantly.

    You forgot Radio City and Madison Square Garden. The Metropolitan Art Gallery is also well worth a visit!

    And it's a convenient jumping off point for Boston or Philadelphia.

    Visited once in 2005 or so. Had to wait hours in the airport security checks or what ever they are.
    Kind of ruined the start of the trip.
    MoP is awesome.

    I'll be going there, but only because I have friends living in the US and not because of the visa thing.
