    Yes FIIIRRSSTTT again asshats. Yawn. Damn Chivers are a special kind of slow. This sign suits the Chivers well if you read it correctly: <img src="http://www.victorystore.com/signs/property_management/images/slow_children_at_play_sign.jpg"/&gt;
    Anywaysies: I'd love to see #17 up close.

    – the one you love to hate

        He's indicating a steering wheel and saying: "I want to drive you"?

        – the one you love to hate

        • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

          OH, RIDE! He wants to ride me!
          You can come right over Steve! ❤ Care for a free drink?

          – the one you love to hate

          • A BiPolar Guy

            To be first on purpose and crow about it, one must have no other purpose in life but to haunt the site. All it takes is to do nothing else. To be first, yet post as though you were not, there is the beginning of wisdom

            • Agreed

              Wise words right here. It is pretty easy to do. It's just that there is no point, and most of us have a life.

    • Phil

      I want to push you off

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        That's why I mentioned the pic with the high cliff. Chivers are good at taking my bait.

        – except subtle bait, they hardly ever get that…

    • Paul

      The fact you troll the site, attempting to be first. The fact you only create troll posts that are lack-luster in quality. The rationality that it all seems to be something you pride yourself on. The masquerading as a female avatar when anyone that has been here long enough knows the truth. These are just a few things that define who you are. Some Chivers may be slow, others share in their apathy, but you are the worst kind of web-parasite. You live off of the disdain, aggravation, and repulsion the rest of us show you. Weighed, measured, and found wanting…now go away.

      • Stan_Dalone

        Sir: Well said, however she loves the attention it brings and yet cannot handle being proved an ass. So if you chastise her do it so she is proved to be wrong and it will have the desired affect

        • McBeastie

          Hello pot? This is kettle. 'Sup?

        • o0-o-

          stop pretending you have any idea what you're talking about. because you don't.

    • Old Man

      At least you post something funny rather than posting simply "first." For that I respect you.

    • I know "Paula"

      Sad. "Paula" lives in his mothers basement and dines on Kool-Aid and Cheetos all day. Such a shallow life.

    • rick ross

      chive needs to block this hoe

        • Stan_Dalone

          I have been to Dunn's River Falls and I believe you are correct

    • testudo

      Looks like Plitvice, Croatia.

    • JGRN

      Not Dunns, but Laos, just outside Luang Prabang I believe

    • anon

      Havasupai in the grand canyon looks very similar and is probably closer to you

    • BlackMatterBeaver

      Actually, I've been to this exact spot and I will never forget it. It's Palenque, Mexico. It's a great place to visit! Especially if you stay at the hostels…

  • Whateves

    ^ Bitch

    no one cares!

    • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

      Why are you calling blub glub a bitch meow?
      Chivers are very impolite.

      – the one you love to hate

    • Chiver

      you know you can reply to someone's post instead of posting a comment aimed at someone.

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        Again: Chivers are a special kind of slowsies.

        – the one you love to hate

        • Scott

          really dont get the point of the 1st 2nd stuff… So what you sit procrastinating more than I do huge grats :p
          Anyway the cliffs are the White Cliffs of Dover. Trip to England on the cards?

          • scottsuxballs

            I think you'll find it's beachy head. Moron

          • Stan_Dalone

            So you will now learn that Paula is more of an internet child then a troll, she cannot handle being showed she's an idiot

            • Sleep_Salone


            • FuckoffStan

              Oh really? Just how are you showing her that shes an idiot? Her fucked up grammar? Her atrocious spelling? Her total lack of logic?



              Thats YOU

              Fucking moron

    • Kev

      People, please, all these insults and internet arguments are beneath us.

      Can't we all just keep calm and Chive on?

  • Art

    Time for a vacation

  • Matt

    I like cities more but the snowboarder in me wants to visit #2

    • https://www.facebook.com/jason.ciotti Jason Ciotti

      I was waiting for the claymation snowman to show up and tell me the story of rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.

      • http://www.myspace.com/theamericanmaniacs BentWrenches

        still waiting

      • 039

        i hate responses like that……

  • Myself

    I think the word, wow, sums up #7 nicely.

  • Chiver


    I've been there and it really aint that special or spectacular.

    • corekshun

      Your hipster "I know and I ain't telling and anyway I ain't that impressed" vibe is totally awesome, dude.


      • jim

        way to jump to conclusions dumbass
        go swallow your mom's jizz

    • Johan

      I've sailed past it (the coast of Dover, England right?). It was

      • none

        Wrong, it's beachy head. 50 odd miles away from Dover.

        • domgod3

          QUADROPHENIA, end scene

  • http://www.facebook.com/alexander.t.miller Alex Miller

    I miss these kind of galleries. MOAR!!! 😀

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    #13 storm front on the beach, impressive! once that cracks the waves must be killer to surf

    • xXbeermonkeyXx

      i have no comment on the matter

      • Lowrent75

        Okay…any particular reason? Or should I just drop this?

  • http://www.facebook.com/theloudestchiselbreaking Cameron Caughtinapurseseine James

    I want to be all up in there with a gun and a cabin.


    • Rocks Off

      I think the National Forest Service might have a problem with you camping and hunting on federal land. It is Crater Lake afterall.

  • kikimiyuki

    wow. so wana get out of this office…!! #3 #7

  • Darkside

    Where the fuck is #14???

    • blubb

      somewhere in Southern Germany or Austria I'd say…don't know the exact place though, the towns all look pretty similar there 😀

      • Da Lollipop Prince

        I think this is actually taken in Norway… Not positive though.

        • asdf

          No it is from a german speaking country. The house on the bottom says "Möbel" which means furniture.
          So it could be southern germany, austria or switzerland. does not really matter where it is exactly. It looks pretty much the same there^^.

    • brightside

      switzerland. 99% certain

    • Ryan

      Looks to me like the village in Switzerland on the way down from Jungfraujoch. Called Grindelwald I believe, was there this summer.

    • paula_pissflap

      u can't explain that

    • bobby

      I think it's Zell Am See in Austria

    • The Lollipop King

      somewhere in Southern Middle Earth I'd say…don't know the exact place though, the towns look pretty similar there 🙂

      • Lovely

        I'd say New Zealand.

    • Steve

      Switzerland bro, maybe Interlaken

    • vzvzvz

      reminds me of Seefeld , Austria

  • Ansel

    The garish post processing on a lot of these photos actually makes some really amazing places look really amazingly garish.

    Such beautiful landscapes don't need to be crudified like this.

    • Stan_Dalone

      tell us how you really feel

      • Sleep_Salone

        Stop telling us how you feel.

  • A BiPolar Guy

    I'm old enough to see retirement on the horizon. I want to go where the people aren't . I want to go where nobody knows my name. I may just relate an entirely fictional background to anyone I can't avoid, to preserve my anonymity and to see what kind of wild tale I can get away with.

    • Underhill

      Been there done that. I often tell people I am a forensic dendrochronology consultant. Emeritus.

    • Dash

      Try Cheers

    You know #1 is computer generated … right?

    • AveSharia

      I actually sort of assumed this entire thread was going to be one big CG vs. IRL test… but they kept coming up IRL after that one.

    • JAFitC

      God forbid that we should dream dreams or use our imagination to transport us to a tranquil spot far from our tawdry existence, however imaginary it may be. You probably tell five year olds there's no Santa Claus, too.

      • http://twitter.com/Timmargh @Timmargh

        Of course not; I never lie.

        • Jay

          I smart man knows the right thing to say. A wise man knows when to say it.

  • Ben

    #19 Havasupai falls?

    • vzvzvz

      I'm thinking it is Navajo Falls, in the same network as, but just upstream from, Havasupai Falls. Wishing to go back someday.

  • Tony

    Looks like a tornado about to pwn that house….

    • Underhill

      Slow shutter blurs the chimney smoke.

  • awesome

    Inception! A volcano within a volcano #18

    • Guest

      That's Mt. Rinjani in Lombok, Indonesia. I can tell you that it looks even better in person 🙂

  • Stan_Dalone

    #3 is where I want to be

  • steve

  • Bob

    #17 Dover, England – spectacular, even to stuck up hipsters

    • paula_pissflap

      not beiijing funny bob but this is the worst pic, didn't even have to be posted it'd crap……CRAP!

    • Brit

      Sailing home from the continent and seeing that wall of white is an incredible feeling. I imagine it's what Americans feel when they fly over the statue of liberty.

    • jrey81

      I was about to ask where this was. Thanks! truly beautiful view!

    • http://www.facebook.com/holly.sands1 Holly Sands

      Actually it's the lighthouse by Seven Sisters, near Eastbourne in Sussex, England. I know because my dad lives there and I have walked over those downs more times than I can count 🙂 Dover is about a 2 hour drive east away from this spot.

  • AlexJ225

    #9 is just down the road from m house
