but then using the logic that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few means we can pretty much screw aquazoo over on the location.
I find it easier to navigate suburbia, myself. I'm trying to be inclusive here, I haven't tried organizing anything with younger people before. The adults are probably the most flexible (despite what you may have heard) since all we need is a car or metro card, both of which are easier to come by than permission.
Parents are a lot more involved & cautious than back when I was a kid. I could go to any friends' house in the neighborhood, we just saddled up the dinosaurs and spent our nickels at the talkies, and then sat on the corner drinking Sasparilla and Moxie. Seriously, when I was 13 my friends and I could go get a pizza (but why bother when the food was free at home) or a movie, but even then we would have been roundly questioned about meeting people that we know from the internet. (if there had been one back then)
Likewise parents are welcome to come along, however I realize that at a certain point you don't want to talk or socialize in front of them. I can only imagine the reaction of my parents to FSM, but then again they are REALLY old.
The best I can do is pick a time & place that will be convenient to most, and I'm happy to hear suggestions and limitations. So lets wait a week or so or until Toasterhead check in, whatever happens first.
