3 things I am currently interested in...

Anti-depressants

I am currently using prescribed anti-depressants
11(9.3%)
I have previously used prescribed anti-depressants
28(23.7%)
I have never used prescribed anti-depressants
71(60.2%)

How many people die walking in the mountains in England annually?



What is there to do in New Orleans other than drink chartreuse and avoid vampires? What have I forgotten to take to America? Plane tickets, passport, money, ESTA application, fingers for fingerprints... Help me, LJ, you're my only help!

Are you looking for a correlation between people's experience of anti-depressants and their assumptions about mountain deaths?

Listen to jazz. Eat cajun.

Clothes. Toiletries & cosmetics. Things to read. Laptop possibly. Eyes for iris scanning possibly? Do they do that?

Generally best to take own fingers and eyes. Other peoples' might not be accepted.

You can't do correlation analysis on LJ polls :-(

I'm basing my answer on there being no mountains in England. There are some nice big hills, but no mountains.

I'm wondering if it's one of those trick questions, like "how many of each kind of animal did Moses take into the Ark?"

Drink hurricanes, drink grasshoppers, go on a river trip on the Mississippi (too thick to drink, too thin to plow) and perhaps see alligators? Buy lots of tourist merchandise with crabs on (I forget why they're relevant).

According to the Mountain Rescue Service for England and Wales, mountain-related fatalities vary between about 20 and about 40 per year.

Yes, that's where I got my figure from, although I mean to see if I can triangulate with ONS's causes of death when I have more time. Although if my memory serves, some of those are not walkers and some of them are not in England (Snowdonia mainly) so it needs refining as an answer.

Are they little wheels which stick out the sides of your head to stop you falling off?

It's over 10 years since I was there, and there was a bit of a breezy day in the interim... However, things I did:

Music - I just went to the terribly commercial House of Blues chain, but that's because a band I wanted to see happened to be on.

Bourbon Street - be surprised at the sheer amount of public drunkeness the Americans can manage when they really try. Really, even if it sounds off-putting, Bourbon Street is an experience not to be missed.

Paddle Steamer on the Mississippi - I assume that this is the one I went on, but don't remember. Linus Torvalds was on the same table, but I didn't talk to him much (out of a fear of fanboyism then, but I'll name-drop now).

Eat a Po'boy - it should keep you going for a couple of days.

Eat other food, just wander around the French Quarter and find interesting looking restaurants and order the Cajun specialities. The Web might give recommendations.

One of my (non-mutual) livejournal friends, chefcdb has recently opened a restaurant there which sounds really good. You should visit it and tell me what it's like.

That was exactly what I was going to say! He keeps posting comments on the food and making me hungry.

Observation: your answers may get skewed by people taking preventative migraine drugs, many of which are technically anti-depressants. I don't know how common that is though...

Potentially also Zyban for smoking...

What is there to do in New Orleans other than drink chartreuse and avoid vampires?

Flash random strangers in return for shiny beads. Eat Cajun food. Go on a boat trip. Visit the preserved/film-set old (antebellum) mansions near Thibodeaux. Drink daiquiris. Buy cheap tourist tat. Buy expensive tourist tat. Drink Southern Comfort. Drink moar.

(Sadly, you're about 3 months too late for Mardi Gras)

What have I forgotten to take to America?

Travel insurance. Driver's licence. Credit/ATM cards. Airline frequent flyer registration number - something for nothing, might as well claim the points. Address/phone number (or at least name of hotel) of where you'll be staying (needed for I-94 form which you'll be filling out before/on the plane). Pen with which to fill out forms on plane.

PS - Don't take too much money. Just use an ATM when you get there, the rates are much better. You'll need a bit for airline shops/cab fare/etc. of course...

Travel insurance. Visa card or enough money to keep you while you're there.

Things not to take: Christmas pudding wrapped in silver foil.

England, the UK or the British Isles? What about climbing or fell-running? ;-)
