    As the holder of current tag, is this my decision? If it is, I say go for it.

    New tag:
    Something that refers to an element. Something on the Periodic Table.

    And no "creativity" on this one, as in He-Man does NOT count as helium. :D

    This one's probably pretty easy.

    I know this has turned into an NC centric game.
    ;)

    BUT is anyone following this near:
    Salt Lake City,
    Lisbon,
    San Fran,
    London,
    Grahamstown,
    Dresden,
    Zurich,
    Frederick (MD),
    Fort Worth,
    Kansas City

    If, so, got a favor to ask of you for a location based game I play. :lol3

    I wish it wasn't raining and cold. I would go get this one(probably same location).


    You got this via Crapatalk :D

    Playing a game called "ingress"
    it's by google, for Android devices. Motorcycle=perfect for the game, quick to zip between portals capturing, spin out around downtown to regen energy, can easily go up on sidewalks, dirt hills, paths, etc.
    (Assuming you don't have a strong urge to follow all those pesky guidelines)

    :lol3

    But every once in a while, google will do "dead drops" placing items in real life locations, that people need to go to decode the items.
    :)
    I'm not encouraging illegal behavior, just help in a different geo based game.

    There's an O2 resort here in Korea, but way too far away for me to get it this time of the year.

    I bet y'all could find one of those "H" for "hospital" signs, at least in the U.S. I'd do it myself but I'm too busy working.

    That makes no sense to me whatsoever. I do know a few guys in Frederick though.

    I had a quick look at the ingress site. :deal
    Pretty sick stuff. :lol3

    Anyway, I'm a couple hours away from Zürich, so unfortunately no way to get there at the moment.

    No worries, all were grabbed within 2 hours of them posting the coordinates.
    It's actually a really cool back story, lots of work being put into it. (And a few screw ups, like having "item codes" be incremental. Cause no one on the internet would think to try the next number in a series. Or write a script to try ALL the next numbers) ;)

    If you have an Android phone, it's a great way to waste hours and get some exercise. I did get a strange look from the police last night as I kept jogging around downtown at 2 am. :lol3

    It's up to the guy that picked the Tag, but I don't see "H" for hospital meeting the qualifications.

    "H" doesn't refer to an element in your context, but a hospital, and the tag specifies 'no creativity'.

    If it's still standing after I finally get my ()#@)()#@#)( flywheel puller tomorrow, I'm all over this.

    I'll even get the exact same O2 :evil
