9. With a Finnish flag and your user name, I would expect nothing less.

Hyvää päivää!

My mother was a Suomilainen, and no, I cannot speak the language. Just know a few expressions, some of them naughty.



Lots of Suomilainens up dere. Eh?

7. Yooper == resident of the upper peninsula of MI. (The UP)

Alas, there is no name for those who live in the lower peninsula, south of the Mackinac Straits. We feel cheated, somehow.

Yoopers are amongst the nicest folks on the planet. Maybe it is because they live amongst so much abject beauty. Also, population is sparse there. And it is cold and very snowy there in the winter. And close to Canada, if you call across the world's largest lake close.

14. Detroiters

That's what we're called. Ever notice that everyone from SE Mich, no matter which town they live in Pontiac, Lake Orion, Clarkston, Waterford, Southfield, Novi etc.. all say they're from Detroit when asked where they're from while traveling?

15. Yup! I know about that because I am an actual Detroiter.

Born and raised within the city limits, a proud graduate of Cooley High School, class of 1966. (West sider.)

My best to you.

And yes, it kind of pisses me off when somebody says that they are from Detroit and when I ask where in Detroit, they say Bloomfield Township, one of the wealthiest suburbs. My response is, "in other words you've never lived in Detroit."

21. I'm too lazy for that.

Prefer going to the store to get my meat. And I don't like to kill anything. Even spiders in the house are safe from me as I'll take them outside rather then crush them.

22. Spiders are encouraged in my house, along with lizards. Used to have a snake underneath...

 


...they pay their rent!

Killing is a touchy subject in DU, though we all do it in some fashion.

10. I've Followed This Show From The Beginning And It Always Seems That....

they run into dead ends and problems. They find just enough artifacts and coupling them with the history of the island - it tends to keep one interested in the show and wanting to see them find the treasure that they are looking for.

There is a lot of duplication and retelling of the story every episode that the new stuff that they are trying or doing is just a small portion of the half hour show (probably 22 minutes if you take in account the commercials).

I'm just wondering how many more seasons they can milk this show.

I'm sure that they are through filming for the current season we're now watching. I would have thought that if they actually found some treasure it would have made the news and we would have heard about it by now.

So my guess is that they still haven't found anything yet and they are going to drag us through another season.

Really - the Ark of the Covenant. Hmmmm........ I'm skeptical.

Oh, I don't know. They've milked Soap Operas like that. Some- better than 50 years!

12. I find it interesting. I read the same article the Laginas did way back

when and I'm glad to see it on the t.v. machine.
Curious as to what was buried to cause them to make it so difficult to dig up.

13. This is a classic case study in obsession!

It's the older brother, Rick, who is obsessed, and the other one, Marty, who has the money to buy the island and finance everything. I watch the show to see how far they'll go before quitting. Sure, they MIGHT find some treasure, but they never seemed to consider that if there was a treasure once long ago, that there's a good chance it was later removed. Who would bury treasure of any size and then leave it? Hordes have been found around the world, but these never involved such complex constructions with booby traps, etc.

Meanwhile, the island gets torn apart and we all get another reality show.
