11 - THE GRAND PRIZE:

Everything sent out 7/7.

Final: I've decided to switch up and go with a different pic than what I thought was my final 3. The winner is Syrillian. [sent]

I think this is a good choice because so much of American history is in it. It can represent our expansion to the west coast, the Transcontinental Railroad, the gold rush and the wild west that made San Francisco. The 1906 earthquake, the Golden Gate bridge and the 60s counterculture define a lot of the last century. The first Earth Day proclamation was issued by San Francisco Mayor Joseph Alioto on March 21, 1970 and the "Gay Rights" movement also calls San Fran home, so our present day society is as connected to San Francisco as San Francisco is connected to our past as a whole.

Reasons for enjoying Barbeque's, scenic landscapes, hard workers, history... and yes, even Stephen Colbert are great aspects of America, but this pic kind of represents all of that in each the past, the present, and future.



[EDIT] I've narrowed it down to 3, but I'm still not sure.

The final 3.

I haven't decided yet, but I've narrowed it down to these that I'll choosing from with a little explanation of why I chose each of them. I'll pick in the next few hours.

-Because a fault line is sort of representative of an America that is divided at the moment, though it is still together.

-For representing the history of the USA.

-For both the natural landscape and all that truckers represent, from capitalism and entrepreneurship to evading speed traps.
http://i747.photobucket.com/albums/x...5/DSCF0003.jpg

-For the hard work many Americans do.

-For the natural resources America has.
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m...i/IMGP0393.jpg

-For our use of technology.
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m...90904-0907.jpg

-For our protection of political dissent.
http://arthurseverythingblog.files.w...t-lockwood.jpg

-For you to stop and think about all the work and effort that went into the making of what is in this picture.
http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u...s/be0b1c7d.jpg

-For the still undeveloped areas of America.

-For the wildlife in America. This was the only shot of wildlife [living] I got.

-For the American middle class. For a representation of all we would rather be doing instead of dealing with all of the crap we are forced to address.

WOAH! That is SO TOTALLY WORTH IT!
I'm going to sign up, just to try to get a second one to have it. Is it unopened dare I ask?

I'll get a picture later, I promise, sorry but no one is here yet at 8:32 AM to take a picture lol. I'll update this post just tohelp keep the thread clean.

EDIT:

What I love about America.... is that we have such freedom to get together, have parties, fun, and enjoy food like this without worry. I know this isn't any specific one thing like a building but it's truly the tradition of the 4rth.

Well you better hurry up because all prizes are going out today... this is why I announced this in my sig 3+ weeks ago. And it is unopened, brand new. When I saw it in Target for $40 in the clearance bin, I knew it had to put it in this giveaway.

Sorry runeazn, not this time... this one is really USA only. I'll do an international one in the fall, or at worst around Christmas time with maybe a few single game giveaways prior to that.

now I just need an excuse to get my girlfriend naked...

That doesn't sound PG-13, but you can PM me some pics and then I'll be the judge.


...and a sign on a body is still a sign.

You can post until you win something, just not back to back. AND DON'T DELETE A POST NO MATTER WHAT.

Also, the pic need to be original, not off the net. I'm sure people can find pics of something quintessentially American. It could be as simple as a vacation pic, a monument, landscape, etc

Other than that, it is pretty simple.

...and I'll be starting in about 20-30 minutes.

That's how this game works. I announce a future post number and tied it to a game and you guys bump up to near that # and then it's cutthroat posting. Then we do it again and again until I run out of games or feel like stopping.

The picture thing is extra.
