    Not true. If it were, there would be as many TIMES the number people living in Alaska as there is in Manhattan!

    I guess if you took everyone in Alaska, spaced them an equal distance throught the ENTIRE state (which is a huge area). Then took what is the area of Manhattan perhaps there would be only 19 people in that area.

    I got a headache typing that one.

    That conceptual higher math turns me on.

    well... manhattan island is TINY.... (something like 4x7 miles or like that...)
    so, its probably true, considering how much open space there is up there....

    . . . . is a BEAUTIFUL state ! ! !

    During my (single) cruise-ship days as a lounge musician, I spent a whole summer cruising (pun intended!) around the pan-handle part of Alaska. Visited Sitka, Juno, Ketchacan and Glacier Bay on a weekly basis.

    Excellent job as a single 23 year old (almost 20 years ago ). Did lots of hiking, did lots of drinking, spent lots of money, did lots of cruising (attempts at cruise, at least . . . . )

    Alaska is just wonderful! Having the sun go down around 11:00 PM was cool! The northern lights were spectacular! (Made for a great dating scene. . . or at least attempts at dating. . . I am so not a "Casanova" (sp?) )

    Cheers!

    I thought Alaska was known for its dating scene...... if you were a woman-isn't there a huge discrepency between the number of men:women?You must be quite a guy Ted!!!!!:wink2: ..........But then, we know that already

    I'm a former Alaskan and in answer to a couple of questions, no, it is not legal to smoke pot in Alaska. Yes, there are more men than women, but there's a saying in Alaska about this discrepency, "the odds are good but the goods are odd!"
