A bottle of Terre di Giurfo Maskaria, a block of Torta Gorgonzola, a fresh warm loaf of bread and a secluded area.

Note I didn't mention clothing? [Wink]

(edit - as may not have been obvious, this plan requires my wife present [Big Grin] )

1. Place bottle of champagne in backpack.

2. Hike through national park until you get to the glacier (2 days)

3. Chill the champagne in glacial ice you've plucked from the lake,

4. Drink champagne from enamel mugs while you watch the sun set.

A Gwar concert where we both get splattered with fake blood, semen and pus coming from various orifices of the demon men on stage.

Wait... that was last week... [crazy]

A beautiful woman; a warm, clear moonless night; dark skies, chilled champagne and my 5" Newtonian Reflector showing her the wonders of the universe.

Of course all of this is transported to the site in a vehicle capable of lying the back seats down. [Wink]

I guess you are luckly to live in a land where you won't be thrown in jail for drinking alcohol in a national park. Not that I am not free to do so as well. I am speaking of some party poopers based on the Patomac

Yes, I am, and I share your puzzlement at the strangely puritanical attitude of many merkin government agencies towards alcohol, when the actual people don't seem to share that view.

btw - The national park in question was in Chile. I neither know, nor care, what the rules in Chile were at the time, being 2 days walk from the nearest park ranger made the question purely theoretical.

A stroll down Nicollet Mall (It's a street in Minneapolis that cars are not permitted on) and pick a nice place to eat at. Then off to block E after 9 (Block E is a place in Minneapolis with video games and fun things to do "E" stands for entertainment and after 9 it's 21+). Play video games and air hokey with a couple drinks. After the place shuts down for the night go to a 24 hour place like Perkins for some coffee and conversation.

a) a cabin somewhere picturesque, like Whistler or Chamonix

b) a chloroform-soaked rag

c) a fine array of sushi knives

... and

d) lotion that it must put on its skin (or it gets the hose again)

Ditch work early, go for a hike to a secluded spot. Build a snowman and leave it. Make snow angels. Race the setting sun back to the car (we lost, but he had a flashlight and I had a Tikka). Stop at a local Indian restaurant for chai.

Newtonian Reflector? Thats quite a fancy name, yanks usually call theirs "johnson," or something along those lines. Also, are you sure 5" would be enough to show the wonders of the universe? [evil]

I suspect a lot of that can be traced back to the temperance movement. I don't know about other countries, but it occasionally got rather extreme here.

I think either just coffee at the local shop for about seven hours discussing random intellectual things and then "movies" afterwards, or hiking into one of the lakes we have here that don't actually have trails into them, and staying there for a couple days with a bottle o' wine and getting up to watch the sunrise over the ridge of the bowl.

The first I do on a fairly regular basis, but the second would make my year if I found the right lady to do it with [Smile]

Watch the sunset down at the lake and sit with a bottle of good merlot and wait for the stars come out.

(amazingly enough, even growing up by Lake Michigan, I've never done this)

I really love to cook, so I tend to randomly surprise my g/f with fairly elaborate four or five course meals. To make this perfect, change the venue from our apartment to a secluded cabin on a lake. Then light a fire, curl-up, and watch the sun set. (although at home, this realistically means curling up on the couch and watching a movie)

Awww, some of you guys have some great ideas. I always knew geek men were closet romantics. [hearts]

Would someone please explain this? I've seen this reference before, but apparently I missed the movie. What is this from? [Confused] Thanks.

The first 3 are all spungo*, and the fourth is from The Silence of the Lambs.

*Unless I'm missing a reference or two, but I'm pretty sure that's just his fuzzy-wuzzy-bunny-wabbit-loving-self.

Oh, the second, definitely. I'm geeky and introverted. Small talk is hard: I tend to be quip-witted. First dates are hellishly awkward.

Women I've known for a while, on the other hand:

A friend of mine works in an ice cream shop on Fridays. I visit her there after I leave work. Our standard greeting involves her taking a running leap into my arms and I carry her around for a while, or until new customers come in. Any customers already in the store just have to cope. It's not a date, but for a few minutes each week the rest of the world just disappears.

A few years ago, another friend of mine and I would curl up together on her couch and watch Mystery Science Theater 3000 each week. Sometimes, she would fall asleep on me, and I wouldn't move until she woke up. Again, we weren't romantically involved, but it was a really nice way to spend the time together.

As long as I could reach the remote control, it was. [Big Grin]

Yes, well we all know Americans are anything but fancy. And as for 5"...well size isn't everything. You have to think of portability and control too. It can often be hard to get bigger scopes to where you want them to go. In my experience, if you know what you're doing, smaller scopes are just as good as bigger ones. [evil]

Yea, but a 5" scope has no "WOW" appeal.

If you tell a girl you have a 5" scope she probably isn't going to be interested in seeing how it works and you will not have the oppertunity to show her how skilled you are. On the other hand if you scope is named aricebo or NRAO very large array (or very large anything for that matter) you friend will probably be more interested in seeing what you can do with it. [evil]
