Looks like no one cares about South America. I guess it makes a good overflow forum for SoCal threads.

Still no South Americans chiming in. Just a land dispute between SoCal and Texas.

I hereby champion the cause of all uninterested and absent South American cyclists and will do my utmost to prevent the South America forum from being annexed by The Crazy Red State or The Crazy Blue State.

That is unless one side or the other can promise me 10+ acres of fertile coca plants and a pot full of Montezuma's gold.

I don't care who annexes South America, but can I have some coastline and a Mayan Pyramid on the Yucatan (and all the land between the two)?

I promise to build a velodrome around the Pyramid

Sure, Extort, there's plenty of coastline and Mayan pyramids to split among the SoCal BikeForum members annexing South America. As for the Yucatan, that isn't in South America. As I pointed out in the help forum, Central America has been left out of the fun. We'll annex that, too.

Good points.

And now that I think of it, in order for me to get a pot of Motezuma's gold, SoCal will need to annex Mexico.

Joe, you listening? We need Central America added (perhaps make this the subforum for Latin America?) so that we SoCal riders can annex it.

We'll see about that. SoCal is going to take all of Latin America, I tell you.

And I do not recognize any claims made by California or Pacific NW on any part of South America.

Neither do I, although actually, all us Texans want is the wildlife to barbecue and the alcohol production facilities. You west coasters can have hugging rights to all the trees and free reign of the granola output.

Cool. Perhaps we can sign a SoCal-Texas land use treaty. We get the beaches, Mayan pyramids, rain forests, and Montezuma's gold. (Don't worry. We'll let you use the velodrome that Extort plans on building around his pyramid.) You get the wildlife and alcohol and the mountains of the Andes. The rest, we'll lease out to others, splitting the royalties 50:50.

The pacNW already controls all of the coffee plantations. Not to mention REI, how are you going to do anything in the jungles and mountains without DEET, goretex, climbing gear, and crampons? If that don't work, microsoft will cut you all off, hah!, 90% of you would be SOL.
We'll let part of Chile go but I'm keeping the seabass fishing grounds; Texas can have the desert and the Argintinian range land, if North Cal shows up they can split the Chiliean vinyards with us.

How does giving Mexico to Texas sound, except Baja and the greater Tijauana area - which So-cal can have?

So-Cal can also have Panama and part of Colombia, Venezuala seems like Texas material, The Andes and the whole Amazon basin from Brazil to Peru is for the PacNW along with Costa Rica and the rest of Colombia as well as the mountains of Southern Argentina (so we can ski in July)
