It's useless information to me... Period. And astronomy has not been useless in my life. Just because I didn't choose it as a profession or advance the field of astronomy doesn't make it useless to an individual. There's sooooo much grey area there lol. Even in terms of a hobby it has uses.... Anyways
Yes, I've "TRAVELED" lol... Dude, who cares if something that small. It annoys you guys say "Fish & Chips" lol... Who cares bro. And travelling is definitely the norm here. PLENTY of people visit the Bahamas, Jamaica, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic etc...
I meant more towards traveling outside North America & the Caribbean Islands. Japan, South Africa, etc... Where did you get that Americans don't travel? I will say cause we are in some prime geography many travel within the country. Big city life in New York, skiiing in Colorado, beaches in Miami, hollywood in LA, etc.
