1. Where are you from? (Let's see who lives in the most interesting, obscure or exotic place)
2. What do you do? (Who's got the strangest job?)
3. Tell everyone one interesting thing about yourself.
I'll go first...
1. Newport, South Wales
2. Web Designer
3. I've (technically) had cosmetic surgery and a bonus one - I played the two major parts in a primary school play: a Naughty Sunbeam and Jack Frost (I still have the pictures somewhere!)
Update: I'd like to try and make this the most commented post so don't be shy!
Update: Thanks to all who have posted comments, it's really interesting to see where eveyone is from. I don't think any of the places have been too exotic.

Australian media said the koala, nicknamed Mick, was found by police and was taken to the Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, north of Sydney. The koala underwent surgery and was given antibiotics to restore his sight and health.
"He came in with a chlamydial conjunctivitis. He had very bad conjunctivitis in his eyes. He's been surgically dealt with. He's had antibiotics and he's looking good," Koala Hospital supervisor Cheyne Flanagan told local media.

Developers are said to be hovering over this unique 7-star hotel in Dubai designed by Sybarite Architects after a major hotel group showed interest in putting up the funds.
The US$350m (£173m) 28-floor Aperiron building would be 300m from the Dubai coast and accessible only by boat or helicopter.
As well as 438 luxury suites, it would contain a spa, an art gallery, and an underwater restaurant with views into a surrounding lagoon.
To top it off, the top two floors would house a temperature-controlled butterfly jungle with tropical species.
Its unique structural design has not yet garnered a nickname, but Building staff have variously named it ‘The Rollmop’, ‘The Pringle’ and ‘The Funnel’. Any better suggestions should be posted below. Link [Via]

This has to be one of the oddest photos that I've seen in a long time. It shows a dazed man sat in the cockpit of a plane that has just crashed.
Shortly after take off the pilot issued a mayday and began losing power. It struck a warehouse with it's right wing and crashed metres away from oncoming traffic.
The pilot survived with relatively minor injuries - a broken leg, broken and and a broken nose. Link.
More photos including a larger version of the one above can be found here.
