Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: Another great year for our great champion! :D

Time Magazine is doing a face-off on "who should e Time's person of the year".

One of the face-offs is the pope vs prince George.


Prince George? That baby has yet to form a personality. How can somebody be nominated just for being born?

Sorry, but you can't compare not knowing African or European countries with not knowing US states

every country is organized in different forms:states, counties, etc, that's internal stuff not general culture.

I'm pretty sure that if Us was to be broken up in 51 different countries an average European would know at least half.

My cousin and I were just looking at French chateaux for sale last night (each of us from our own city 400km away from each other). We might as well add that bank safe to our wish list.

Oh, and Andreea, while I mostly agree with you, if we are comparing relative area, we kind of have to go with US states. So I'm okay with the comparison. That being said, I know I'd do absolutely terribly if I were asked to name/place any provinces/states/counties/whatever in other countries (other than Canada and the US).

LOL me neither.
*running before JM asks about the Swiss cantons or Evita about Latvian regions, I know some, I know some Evita, and I follow what's on our news about Latvia but let's be honest... *

You know in the non-tennis thread about this (I think) some Canadian asked freaky3man (or whatever his name is, you know the kid) to name Canadian provinces (& territories) and the kid did really well. He had been studying geography.

You wouldn't be able to name the 26 cantons of the oldest true democracy in the world?!

Mea culpa.
Or whatever you'd say in this case. I'd have to cheat with Wikipedia.

Why would we be able to name those 26 cantons anyway?

Because everyone should, no?

I mean, you Europeans expect everyone else to know about your geography, so I expect you to know mine, sounds just fair, no?

"You Europeans" as opposed to "me, JM, the Martian?"


Apparently, there's quite a storm heading for the northern part of the UK, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany.
