About US a little bit of history
The United States of America (commonly abbreviated to the United States, the US, the USA, America, or simply 'the States') is a federal constitutional republic comprising 50 states and a federal district. If the trailer for 'The Newsroom' is to be believed, the US ranks 7th in literacy, 22nd in science, 49th in life expectancy, 178 in infant mortality, the 3rd in median household income, number 4 in labor force and number 4 in exports.
Out of many, One
Since declaring independence in 1776 (an act repeated in 1996) America has claimed its 3.8 million square miles from indigenous tribes, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Mexico, Russia and itself. As the worlds sole superpower the US accounts for 41% of global military spending, while its national anthem borrows heavily from an English drinking song.
In God we trust
Every 39 minutes a new pornographic video is being created in the US, generating revenues in excess of 13 billion dollars annually (14% of worldwide porn revenue back in the heady days of 2006). But enough about those guys...
About grabaGAFF.com Guarding the secret entrance to the magic kingdom...
At least that's the dream! grabaGAFF.com is one of those mad ventures that just doesn't seem to happen anymore (like the crusades or camogie). Born out of the ideals of the pre .com era when the internet was useful and not just a virtual advertising board (advertisers are always welcome though - we can't even spell hypocrite). We noticed there just wasn't a national web-site that looked after the annual rush to get college accommodation...
WTF? No dedicated student accommodation website?
Never one to be idle, we went to work... slowly. The end result is a student website that's not just an online magazine (the term 'movie review' is banned here) but a tool to help get students out of the rain, out of those cardboard boxes and into nice, occasionally warm gaffs - most even have a roof!
We've many gaffs to offer and we're adding more all the time. If you are a landlord who wants to spread the word please sign up and advertise your property (all for FREE!). If you're a student and we've failed you, please drop us an abusive mail telling us where we screwed up - we'll try fix it!
