Yes, we went through this WHOLE thing beforew with the so-called "Paris Superthread" and I know that Ira remembers it quite clearly.

One of the people who pushed it then departed so she could be the big fish on another travel board where she's still pining for her hoosier heartthrob BUT I digress.....LOL

That "superthread" became so unwieldy it was a nightmare and pretty soon anything even remotely associated with Paris got stuck in there.

Frankly, I appreciate as much as anyone the concentration of information but I suspect when we start getting tocpics in stickies such as:

"Why you are really STUPID if you take the Tube instead of those clogged-in-traffic busses in London" I think, Robes, you'll see the futility...sorry, just my opinion.

Any question that is easier and faster to find an answer to with a google search.

There should be a standard encouragement on postings. Enjoy your trip, embarce the undforseen, make the trip your own, stop worrying.

While half the posters exhibit exceitement, the other 50% range from mild anxiety to pure hysteria. Of course, should be great anticiaption but there should also be a sense of anticipated pleasure and adventure.

Why can't I wear my shorty shorts, swim bra and plastic flip flops into the Vatican? I wear them to the mall all the time.

We have a full week in Europe and know we have to see London, Paris and Rome. What other countries should be see in between?

I'm going to London with my husband, mother and 3 adult children. We're having trouble finding a room for a resonable budget - 50 pounds a night. Where should we look?

I've heard there is terrible crime in Madrid (or Rome or wherever). Should I cancel my trip? Or should I just stay in the safe areas, and which are they?

I don't want to pay all those fees to exchange money. Can't I really buy anything I need just using dollars?

And yes, I have seen real versions of all of the above on this board. It never ceases to amaze me.

If people would ever look at a guide book, or a map, or, as my father says "use their heads for something besides a hat rack" - none of these questions would turn up here.

Will I be allowed to go to Cinque Terre if my shoelaces are not pressed?

Why does the Leaning Tower of Pisa lean?

How do I take my own photo inside the Blue Grotto?

But what if I don't speak Russian?

Why aren't Euros and dollars the same?

Why doesn't New York have just one airport?

Comfy shoes so I can walk from LA to Las Vegas?
