And Now for Something Not Completely Useless


MeetWays is a website where you can enter 2 locations and receive a location in the middle to meet up. For example, if I wanted to find a bar between Dave's place in the Bay Area and my place in SD, I'd discover the middle ground would be somewhere outside of Bakersfield. Yay. Bakersfield (so, maybe this would work better for people in the same general geographic area). Really, this would be most helpful for people in a long distance relationship. "Hey, Chicago boyfriend. Let's meet in Las Animas, Colorado for some fun! Ahh yeah." Or maybe you can think of better uses.

Wow, that is a pretty good idea. Way to go, Internetz!

Red, I'll meet you at the Prop In Bar & Grill, 448 Lake Shore Drive in Craig, MO.

Red said...

Sounds like a plan, Becks!

Liz said...

According to this Red, we should stop meeting halfway at the Triple Crown bar, and meet more effectively at the Jimmy Sullivan Design Studio.

Screw that, I just tell people to come to me. Like I'm going to schlep all the way somewhere just for somebody else. Hell no!

Sorry, but I'm not meeting you in effing Bakersfield.

Isn't Las Vegas halfway between everywhere? See you at the Paris buffet.

I love this site.

This is really going to help you out with that Blogger meet up that none of us guys were invited to.

Dammit.

Red said...

Damn straight, McGone.

david wells said...

So I should be booking my flight for Las Animas then?

Hey this is pretty damn slick!

Apparently you're meeting me on E 1170 Rd near the Clinton-Sherman Airport in Burns Flat, OK.

See you there in a little bit. I'll be the one with the long-stemmed rose in a book on the table.

I will now use this site with local friends, saying, "So, it looks like the halfway point between our houses is Steve's Wacky House Of Creepy Grown Men Who Are Still Interested In Magic, but I'm too lazy to get up, so if you want to hang out, we're still doing it at my place."

I had to lay down a lot of track to get to that one.

Falwless said...

hahahaha Pistols re: "I had to lay down a lot of track..."

You are hilarious.

Liz said...

Don't feel too bad McGone, I write for this site and I'm not sure I was invited to the blogger meetup

Red said...

Your presence is assumed, Liz.

According to this site, it looks like you and Liz will be meeting me in Township No. 5, Kansas. It's between two towns called White City and Skiddy.

Sounds like EXACTLY the kind of place we should meet, no?

This site is of little use to me and my internet girlfriend from Jupiter.

Mathdude said...

I'd just think of some place twice as far away as me, and that way my place would be the supposed half way point.
