    Yes, I do.

    I was born very tiny, no doubt due to the genes inherited from my Dad, Tom Thumb. Suitable housing has been very hard to come by but I've always had an inventive mind.

    If you look carefully by the information button on my remote home you'll notice my vegetable patch at the side. Heck, it's not the most spacious accommodation you'll ever find, but living inside a remote control does have it's benefits such as batteries to snuggle up to, food dropped on us regularly, free satellite TV, and big warm fingers hitting all the right buttons on cold winter nights.

      You haven't got any of your family living in my remote have you HD?

      My green button has started playing up so it's a pain trying to access my recordings.

    Vancouver is remote? Don't over a million people live there?

    I live as remote as I can. I'm not as remote as I'd like to be and I'm pretty sure there are others in this vicinity that also would agree I am not as remote as they'd like me to be, either.

    I live in the country at the end of a dirt/gravel road. There are farms around and it takes 1/2 hr to get to town. It's a fair balance of remote and not so remote. I don't want to live in the wilderness, but I like living in the country.

      Sounds glorious. What kind of Internet connection are you getting nowadays?

    Yes, I live in a kind of a remote place that would look pretty much exotic to the ancient tribes.

    Where I live would be extremely remote if not for all the other people that live here. :rolleyes:

    Where I live is not so much remote, as isolated.

    In fact it's THE most isolated city in the world.

    It is currently home to ~ 1.7m people. The nearest comparable city is over 2,100km (>1,300 miles) away.

    During the 80's though, I worked out on mine sites deep within WA which were both remote and isolated. Places where "town" can consist of a pub, a takeaway food joint, a post office, a petrol station and a general store. In quite a few cases they're all in the one building. And "town" in some cases was a good 4 hour drive (8 hour round trip) away from the site.

      Green, you say? Sounds like you've got leprechaun squatters.
