what do you know about your country?

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by The_Loose_Cannon, Jul 31, 2007.

  1. weither you were born in america or from another country, how much do you really know about where you came from?

    all those in america can say they are american like myself but you know your relatives came from another country into the US from elis island.

    me, im romanian and austrian with other misc ethnicities but mostly romanian.

    so, really how much do you know about where you came from?

    this video on youtube that i found tells you alot about romania. we arent as poor as you think believe it or not and we do have some of the most beautiful women (achem!)

    ETA- we have a happy graveyard! that explains why i love cemeteries

    Well I came from Canada.
    Scarborough or Toronto to be exact.
    Don't really need to say much about Toronto though other than its not as bad as people say it is, and watching sports there is very fun.

    For those of you from the US.

    Test Yourself

    I got all but 2. One of them was the sate I live in :mad2: The other was New Hampshire. Darn that state. The spelling on some of them took me a while.
     

  4. that was extremely easy. dont you remember the 50 states song from when you were little? it was in alphabetical order! thats one of the few things i remember the most (besides hot cross buns on a recorder :sick: )

    Well england... which formed most of the settlements on america :)
    Now bow down to me and my fellow english men.

    And waterloo in ontario was voted the most inteligant community of 2007 by a forum, hardly something that is set in stone imo.

    I know some Welsh history (e.g. Owain Glyndwr), but perhaps not as much as I should. Useless trivia: St. David's is the smallest "city" in the UK, with less than 2000 people. Also, there are only five cities in all of Wales.

    I know a fair bit, But I can't remember all Monarchs..Theres been quite a few in the time Monarchy has existed >.<

    Basically, I know of the important milestones in the history of my country. I don't really need to know much more.
