Hmm, I always thought Northern Ireland was also part of Great Brittain... And that United Kingdoms was the same.

Again, learned something today! I'm done for the day

[pedant mode on]
England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland".

But if Northern Ireland left the union, it would still be "The United Kingdom of Great Britain", the united kingdoms being England and Scotland.

OK - so, just for fun, I put this through a slight transformation dependent on the population of the respective countries. Each line below gives the country name, followed by the number of votes it has polled (correct as of 10:10am GMT today), followed by the countries population*, followed by a ranking number derived by dividing the number of polled votes by the population and multiplying by 1,000,000. They are in descending order.


Canada 60 34290000 1.750
NZ 4 4238000 0.944
Australia 14 20960000 0.668
Germany 31 82188000 0.377
Denmark 2 5516000 0.363
Croatia 1 4483000 0.223
Belgium 2 10422000 0.192
Finland 1 5256000 0.190
Portugal 2 10733000 0.186
England 9 52000000 0.173
US 51 309922000 0.165
Netherlands 2 16794000 0.119
France 6 64908000 0.092
Spain 2 40540000 0.049
Romania 1 22168000 0.045
Italy 2 59023000 0.034
India 1 1191557000 0.001

* Populations derived from this site: http://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/information/population/ with the exception of the England population which I estimated from this site: http://www.statistics.gov.uk/cci/nugget.asp?id=1352 (all rounded to the nearest thousand).

So, if I could vote in the poll Bulgaria would be ranking...
1 /7134317*1000000 = 0,140, which is between US and Netherlands

I'm glad you clarified that. I was seriously conflicted about which of the two winners to boost- place of origin, or residence. Now I know- Canada gets one more vote.

Does dark choc help resolve existential conflict? Or maybe residential one? Bring it on. On second thought, even if it doesn't, bring it on anyway.

So....it will read "Romania/Bulgaria"

Ok. I'm going to try and help DG out. I'm sure that she'll appreciate that.

As the two red areas above indicate She wants to know where you live now. Not where you were born, but where do you call home.

This problem has been solved by greater people than I. But to drive it home, I have a little 34 second movie clip that will stay in your mind.

Some people just don't want help.

DG, underneath your nice pleasant persona is a mean dictator!

Not only do you manipulate votes, but you try to combine countries like Turkey & Estonia! Will be Austria & Slovakia be next? Are you related to Napoleon?


What did I do?

Moderators! Moderators! DG is gonna hit me! HELP!





Ummm. Is it too late to ask for some chocolate?
