    Does Appalachian count as its own country?

    To quote the late Frank Zappa

    "You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer."

    My apologies that I didn’t mention millennials. I forgot how sensitive "y'all" are.

    Oh, Hell yeah!

    The northern extreme is western Pennsylvania (where I grew up as the son of a coal miner's daughter and a steelworker) The southern extreme is somewhere way down there who brought us Gettysburg...

    :p

    Really? Those misspelling excuses are in the past now. We just Google it and the right spelling will come out, like checking it on Google Earth or Wikipedia: Colombia - Wikipedia

    About the bolt snap.

    Don’t all new divers trained with a long hose know what one is?

    I do acknowledge that they are a small percentage. Discussions of bolt snaps is fair game.

    While I did go through all the comments, I may have misunderstood a clarification.

    There is no "reply heading".

    It's "Burhan" not "Burham".

    "Spelled" not "Spelt".

    "You're" not "your".

    Keep this up and the grammar police will soon be moderating your posts too. Tally ho and all that.
