Definately oil.

We have lots, probably 50-100 thousand. Out of 750,000 total.
TitusFinn wrote:Have you ever come across a polar bear?

Not in the wild. I have seem one at the local zoo. I have encountered grizzley bears and black bears in my backyard tho.
TitusFinn wrote:Do you have dogs and a sled?

I have 2 dogs, but both are too old to be pulling sleds.
TitusFinn wrote:What's the main issue, politically there now? :D

The main issue right now is probably whether or not we should drill in ANWAR, which is a large oil reservation up north.

I've heard that Alaskans really don't feel like part of the U.S., due to the distance it takes to get to the continental part of it.

Maybe Alaska will try to be like Quebec, and break away?

This is also true, I feel that we are left out by most of the U.S. I am not too into politics yet, but these shipping charges are killing me. Most of the good stuff on Ebay they dont even ship out of the lower 48. :P

All of the above, plus the darkness in the winter depresses a lot of people.

I dont know about Alaska, but in australia we have a state called Tasmania, its like an island down the bottom where its freezing cold. Some stereotypical veiws of it are that the parents of a child are usually brothers and sisters themselves, they have 6 toes, its freezing cold, any normal person who goes there once never comes back and that that it is only good for chopping trees down.

better not do anything contentious though, coz bush'll invade... it won't be anything to do with the oil, though, oh no...

Is halibut the Eskimo word for big ugly women? That halibut is pretty big. The fish is big too.

It would have been better if she was holding a six foot rod with a old Zebco 33 on it.

Also believe that I have heard that you never receive new movies when they come out...takes a while longer.

We have McDonalds, but i think they have lower standards for food then down in the lower 48.

We have some big theatres in Anchorage that get movies the day they come out, but the one out here in Wasilla you have to wait a couple weeks to see it. So basically, I have to drive an hour just to see a movie in a decent theatre. :(

Ummm... thats pretty clear already. But if you come to alaska do not eat at McDonalds because the food tastes like shit. It tastes better in the lower 48 than it does up here.
