Where do you meet friends?

There are plenty of places that social interaction takes place. In these places, people meet other people and make friends. So what sort of places do you make most of your friends? At the place where you study? At the place where you work? At some place that you go to regularly for food/socialising? On the Internet on discussion sites like this? On online dating sites even?

I simply make friends when I'm near those people for extended periods of time: Like school, work, chess, hell... even a 2 week tour of Europe. Also, more often than not, friends of friends are easy to make friends with.

Hell you say... I was talking to somebody else the other day (can't say who it was or the exact words of the conversation) but I'm sure it came up that there isn't really much time for socialising in Hell. Something about continuous solitary and torture. Wait, was the Hell or school? I suppose if that is considered then you can make friends in Hell. I've always found it more interesting to laugh with the sinners than to cry with the saints anyway. Nice point about the friends of a friend thing. That usually works out well. Or at least well enough to be on good terms while your friend is having an event that both you and the friend's other friend are at. Unless your friend has bad choice in friends (which says a lot about you).

If the cool people go to Hell, would they then be referred to as the hot people instead? I don't know if you saw the one episode of South Park where they depicted Heaven as being full people that get terribly excited about the humdrum good family activities in which they engage. The point being that at the end of the episode, Satan arranges for Sadam Hussain to go to Heaven as punishment. South Park is funny.

I often meet my friends in the restaurant. I think that is a very nice place to talk with them.

I think you misunderstood my question. Or perhaps I just wasn't clear in what I was asking. What I meant was where do you generally make new friends. Of course it is always good to go out with your current friends and so keep them friends, I'm just curious about how other people go about meeting new people.
