Oh, come on, don't be a nitwit.  Whois says you're in _Arlington,
Virginia, in the United States_.  Now which do you think is safer, staying
at home, or going to Nepal for the same period of time?  Let me guess; you
have a television, you think Thailand is full of prostitutes, you think
Russia is full of gangsters, and you've never actually been to any of
those three countries.  Am I right?  Free clue: go look at the numbers.

You have my abject apologies, of course, if you're actually Canadian.

For everybody else, yes, I know I'm being grouchy.  I just find this kind
of behavior incredibly offensive; this kind of reality-defying jingoism is
one of the most embarassing things about being identified as an American
while travelling.  Happy Thanksgiving.
