Question



I might be mistaken, but isn't London on a river, Thane or something? I might be totally wrong, but no city built before industrialization is not near water, either a river or an ocean. But nevermind, it
s a "bit" off topic.

Try Alllicks.

Gata,

Sometimes it is necessary to build fake beaches. Such beaches exist here in Chicago, where millions of pounds of sand are poured on several fake beaches here every spring.

The sand is slowly washed away (because it's not natural) and works its way across Lake Michigan to Michigan. Then, because we are TOTAL geniuses, we buy the sand back from Michigan every year, and dump on our beaches. Our tax dollars at work.

And THAT'S how you make MONEY ON THE INTERNET.

Glad we can sell you your sand back...but I am sure that it is the Detroit residents that recon over there and steal it from you http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Can anyone offer a decent click-through rate for sending unique visitors to beaches in London?

'Fake sand' is brought to Waikiki and even many of the famous surfing beaches up and down the So. California coast. Coney Island was a "fake beach". Sadly, the British Isles are not blessed with the weather of the above nor are the beaches of Michigan..but a beach is a beach is a beach..and my toes can't tell the difference. The only question is..how teeny are the bikini's? http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

I beg to differ!

Michigan beaches have some of the best summer weather around. From about now til mid-September, you get sunshine and pleasant temperatures along with stretches of the finest fresh-water beach in the world.

Just my little, heavily biased opinion.

No slight intended Michigan...but beach weather in Hawaii and SanDiego is 12 mths of the year..thus there are 7 extra months for judging the bikini's. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif
P.S. Having a partiality I can not deny..Is there something 'unatural' in the first place about a 'fresh water' sand beach? Thus wouldn't that make it perfectly 'natural' to import sand to one? Just a thought.

Once I stepped on a broken bottle that was burried in the sand. Had to get stiches in my foot..I was only 8 years old then...

Been scared to walk on the beach barefoot ever since...

Since this is a frivolous thread and I don't want to take up space elsewhere..how's this for the greatest domain name of all time! I just ran across it... http://blowthedotoutyourass.com
Once there, there are some real funny ones in the sequence. But be advised there is some adult language used in the .coms registered. Better not to click above, just enjoy it on it's own.

Now...back to the beach.
