Anywho, I digress …

Loosely based on what might have happened. Or not.

Silicon Valley – tourist destination

Posted by episode81 on April 17, 2009

Evil, or not.Saw this article today.  Although I have encountered my fair share of tourists, I still don’t think of SV as a tourist destination.

I spent my teenage years in Paignton which is a magnet for holidaymakers (the generic British word for tourist) and SV is nothing like it!   Believe me, in Paignton, tourists shop at the supermarket in their bathing suits and are smothered in suffocating coconut oil.  Sadly, I used to take the same bus.  Never a good idea to sit in a seat once occupied by a slippery tourist – pretty funny though, when the bus pulled up sharp.  Tacky tourists all over the floor covered in bits of bus debris 😀

Tourists are called Grockles in Devon and Emmets in Cornwall.  These are not complimentary names.

Anywho, I digress …

I want to visit the NASA Ames Research Center.  I wonder if they have a child-free day?
