Welcome to all the recent newcomers!  We so enjoy getting to meet you all and have you add to our simming experiances.

Swede- I would have to say that the southern states here in the US have a gigantic population of mosquitoes and they have always said that in Texas, things are bred bigger.  Our mosquitoes are the size of 747 airplanes!  :)

I've never been to Sweden or Florida, but I was raised at Reindeer Station, Northwest Territories, about 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle.  Mosquitoes in the North are so big and hungry there is a hunting season for them.  ;)

Very interesting to see many different people and languages on here.  Always great to learn about different countries.  I live in Florida and it is boring here, not much of a beach goer and it is hot, but it is home and that is what matters.  Welcome to all of the newcomers, great site and sure you will learn alot.

I agree with you Saltypaws. All the different people here, not only because of the land we come from but also the different ages, languages and well, haha, the different traits we have is indeed very interesting. And even though we all differ from each other, we still share the same passion: The Sims.
That's really interesting. And to be honest, I am a little bit curious about the rest of the forum members here. Especially about how it actually comes that so many different people love the same thing. The only problem is, this interest doesn't have anything to do with The Sims itself. Or at least: almost nothing and is therfore probably not allowed to be discussed in any existing post here. So I was thinking: maybe someone should make a new post for us members where we can talk about ourselves? We only have to tell each other what we want to tell, of course.
I was thinking of starting one myself, but because I am not a moderator I don't know if I have any permission to do it. And besides that: I don't even want to start one if there is no interest. So if there are people interested, please raise your hand (or post a reply).

Well, there exists large swamps (not Florida kinda swamps, more Northern versions ;)) up in the North of Sweden. The mosquitoes are relatively normal up there, but the horse-flies there are the biggest I've ever seen! They're so big so that when you go home after camping there, you'll have several holes in your t-shirt from when they've tried to lick your blood through it.

Then there's also biting midges that are so many that you'll never escape from being in a permanent swarm of them. I remember one time when we were camping and if you shook your head, a black carpet was laid out on the table, only consisting of the dead bugs that had been caught in your hair! It is really impossible to be out more than half an hour in the middle of the day, otherwise you're practically gonna faint from all the bites.

EDIT: Leto, have you checked out the Babble Thread? It's the perfect place to talk about, well anything! :)

They can't be hunted with guns.  That insect carapace is too tough for ordinary ammunition.  They have to be trapped.  There are special mosquito traps; see image.

You don't know the joke!  :o

Thank you samoht04, but I have found it already. It was indeed below this thread, but probably only because this was the last one where someone has put an reply in.

@pallyndrome: in case you where still searching for it, here is the link: http://www.carls-sims-3-forum.com/index.php/topic,697.0/topicseen.html

I'm obviously funnier than I thought... ::)
What I of course meant was to give him a link to the Babble Thread and still indicate that it was below this Introduction Thread. You can answer him successfully and still be funny! :D

Ok, so I went back and just now saw that the word "it" is actually a Hyperlink. I still don't get the joke, but oh well, that's ok.

Yes it is Leto. To colour the regular text in any other colour than black is forbidden by the forum rules, so a blue text will always indicate a link.

How do you actually do that? I like to know for in case I need someday to guide someone to somewhere in someway (weird line sorry :P). I'm pretty sure that it isn't changing the colour only, because with only that I will send one to... Well, probably nothing. Besides for breaking some rules of course.

To insert a link as a word you write first "[url=(the website)]" (without quotation marks, ignore that the first u is weird) and then write whatever you want the word to be; end with "[/url]". This will always give the text that blue colour.

To change the text colour (which you may never do ;D) you have the "change color" option at the right of all smileys in the posting screen.
