I'm down here in South Texas. As long as it's not near the border I'm willing to travel down to Mexico city or somewhere far from the border. I was near the damn Rio grande river ealiear this month and I heard gun shot's off in the distance.

So fuck that shit.

fucking drug war's.

Just get the swine flu vaccination. I got it a few week's ago along with my mom, dad and sisters. Just get the vaccination and you should be fine.

You are right, and thats something I am concerned about, although gunfire is restricted to mobsters and the army, there have been casualties and as much as we might enjoy the madness series I am sure its not a fun situation to be in. So for obvious reasons we should avoid northern states.

Yes, thats right, the north is the most affected. But Mexico city is free of Machinegun showdowns.

I was more or less just being an ass. All those places he showed in google search for where the recent flu epidemic is across the world... Most places that are fatal on that map you could die from the common flu anyways.

.. which is basically what swine flu is... Just the regular flu... Just overly hyped because everyone is a retard and thought it was some horrible mutated virus.. when it's really not..

Few of my friends had swine flu. And they're perfectly fine without have taken the shot. And I never got it while I hung out with them a few times before they went to the hospital to get a check up. I'm not saying i'm immune to it. But i'm pretty damn sure i'd have had it by now if I was gonna get it. My body is weird and seems to have a very highly natural tolerance and immune system.

Another reason mexico is a bad place for this.

I don't wanna hear how a bunch of NG'ers got kidnapped and trained to be assassins for the mexican cartel..

Which I believe is higher than alot of the mafia families.. Correct me if I am wrong.

Your ignorance is pissing me off, if you do not want to assist then dont even bother posting. And the link I provided from the WHO was to show there have been much more cases of swine flu in the US than in Mexico. Also you can get a proper health care here in the remote case you fall sick, the normal flu you clam to be killing people, well is nothing to be worried about either Mr statistics, because those that have died are mostly elder or people that for several reasons never visited the doctor.

Ok, let's make this clear:

As far as I get, this Mexico meet-up is being done so mexican newgrounders can hang around a while and know each other. Of course people from other countries can come, but that would be pretty unlikely. So, I guess there's no problem. Mexican people know Mexico is not the dangerous place the USA News shows you it is. I've been living here all my life and had never been kidnapped, robbed or anything like that. Only morons would go to those dangerous places where you can actually be in troubles, and we are clearly not going to plan a meet-up on a place like that. So please, please, if you are just coming up to this thread to make racist jokes about mexicans, please get out and stop botherin. Us mexicans have exactly the same rights as anyone else to be respected and to do meet-ups if we fucking feel like to.

I'm not trying to be agressive with anyone but sometimes people can just make me nuts. Peace.

Thats right, I believe you meant place like ciudad Juarez, and parts of mexico city like Iztapalapa, Ciudad Neza and so on. Well my foreign peers, let me tell you one thing, I am worried about your security, and as well I am aware of which places are "the wrong end of town", Its not like theres a guy wanting to rob you everywhere. Like most jobs, thieves follow a schedule, and are restricted to certain areas. Consider that such economic situation that pushes you to rob may restrict you from bribing cops, therefore they become your enemies. So as a mugger, you would not roam the areas where cops are likely to patrol, you would be "working" somewhere where your collegues can give you some back up hidding you or whatsoever.

Thats basically your average thief pattern. But if you are interested on a satire of daily life in mexico city, watch the CCC city series here on newgrounds. BTW I think I should ask Vinnie Veritas to come.

You know, I'd love Mexico more, if the country's political status didn't made me bleed internally each time this newgrounder thinks about it.

I love my country, but it's run by the most vile bastards.

Well, its getting better, in my opinion what really lets down Mexico is burocracy. A lot of polititians are pretty good, the president may not be very supportive of the poor, but he is doing a good job against the eeconomic crisis, in my opinion ofc.

I gotta give credit to Calderon, he actually tries, that's about it. The fact that AMLO is still on, makes me hate the Mexican political scene.

Hahahaha, that is something I am absolutely aware of, but do we really want 13-15 yr old guys completely drunk? I have seen it, and I dont want to ruin the joy of the gathering. But oh well, if you are underage and you can get alcohol, what can I do about it. Anyways I dont to worry a lot about that now.

I agree, AMLO is a huge pile of shit. I used to date a girl that supported him, sometimes I feel luck that didnt work out.

Ok no more politics, lets get to business...

Luis suggested that the beach would be a lot more appealing, and I agree, since this is the first time I know everybody is not very sure wether or not this meetup is gonna work. In fact I am getting little attention because of that.

Anyways, next week I will be evaluating all the opinions so far, and will release or two locations to choose from.
