Theoretical gift question. [Aug. 25th, 2004|05:20 pm]

If you had the choice of these three items as a gift that you had to receive . . .

1. Air gun, Red Rider

2. Rubber mallet

3. Rand McNally map of the United States/Canada/Mexico

Which theoretical gift would you want to receive? Why?

I love them too. :D

The Thomas Guide of Los Angeles is a fun book to flip through for me. They have such amazing detail.

Is there such an in-depth guide for any other cities?

I'm sure there is.

However, Rand McNally only does the Thomas Guides for most of the Pacific Southwest.

The best city maps I've encountered, with such detail as the Thomas Guide . . . You can get amazing detail through AAA and Rand McNally, from experience, not including McNally's Thomas Guide.

I like the maps in shopping malls and airports, especially when I find where I am, where it says "You are here." :D

Yes, of the three, I think that the map would give me the most utility, unless it was a map of Montana, and I don't have any plans on going there at the moment. :D

That Rand McNally map should be passed out to every first grader across the nation.

I used to spend hours in college . . . I'd just flip to a state, and I'd start looking at the streets and cities.

Well, I'm gonna say the map, even though everyone else did, too. Because that's the truth!

Maps ARE cool and fun. I want it to be HUGE and I'll put it on the wall.

Maps have been a big part of my life.

I have needed them on 3 jobs and counting.

I had a Red Rider at one time.

It was fun to shoot the pellets, but they were prone to inaccuracy, like paint balls. They would zig and zag in odd directions.
