Simple really. Do you live in a country other than the one you were born in?

I used to.

Elaborate in the comments because that's the entire point of the thread :-)

Myself, I am Danish but currently living in the States. You?

Oh, yes. Very much so. I was born in Indiana in 1952. The United States in 2016 is a very different country. it's hard even to recognize them as related some days.

I used to live in the U.S.A. But not sure what is called anymore. It is definitely foreign compared to what it used to be.

Tom Reed Supporting Member of TMP20 Oct 2016 10:54 a.m. PST

No, and I still live within 10 miles of where I was born.

As others have said: this is not the country I was raised in.

Personal logo ochoin Supporting Member of TMP20 Oct 2016 12:01 p.m. PST

Yes. And I've travelled to many more.

Does that make me "superior"? No but it might give me a wider perspective on things.

Then moved out to the country on the south side of town.

Kind of a Green Acres thing!

Have been away but live in same town (mailing wise) as I grew up in. My dad still lives in same small town he was born in. Apples pretty much fall straight down in my family.

Gen Custer20 Oct 2016 1:56 p.m. PST


Born in Germany, met my wife in Wales while stationed with the Bundeswehr in Pembrokeshire in '96 and after years of going back and forth we now made our permanent home in her hometown here in Wales. ;-)

Born and raised in Michigan USA.

Retired to Northwest Georgia. 12 years now and I still can hardly understand my neighbors when they speak.

attilathepun4720 Oct 2016 2:49 p.m. PST

As others have already said, I was born in the U.S., but it is not the same country anymore (more's the pity).

I was born and raised in Chicago. I now live in the country of California. It's a lot different than the Chicago I grew up in. The weather is nice but…….

jeffreyw320 Oct 2016 3:58 p.m. PST

Born in the US, but lived in Montreal for a few years. Really helps with perspective.

Martin Rapier20 Oct 2016 10:07 p.m. PST

I live in Yorkshire but was born in Lancashire. They may as well be different countries….

Rod I Robertson20 Oct 2016 10:33 p.m. PST

Perhaps. It depends on the results of the next sovereignty referendum!

No. Born about 2 miles from where I now live.

My wife was a Air Force brat, she more than makes up for my lack of mobility

Personal logo brass1 Supporting Member of TMP21 Oct 2016 9:51 a.m. PST

I was born in the USA but now I live in Louisiana, which may not even be on the same planet.

FWIW, I remember John the (self-styled) Greater being brought home from the hospital. He has gotten taller since then but his appearance and general attitude haven't changed significantly.
