I nominate Costa Rica
It's probably number one on my to visit list for Central America.
(although I really liked living in Antwerp)
its like the control in terms of whats being destroyed in the world "ten wales wroth of forest have been burned today", "the japanese killed a dozen wales yesterday"
mrs knees is always noticing the fact that news programs always use wales as an area measurement
postage stamp, football pitch, Wales
Damn their neutrality and everything it stands for.
to be average?
not average cheese, clocks and chocolate.
What have they ever done for us?!
The danish people Ive met are all kinds of fun as well.
Denmark is a great country.
I'm nominating Slovenia. With an honorable mention to Slovakia.
ok I nominate Finland.
Australia is the pinnacle of average - absolutely nothing to speak of.
Biologically/environmentally, it's amazing.
he only needs one turn of bonuses to cripple me so fix up quick sharp, aye?
Headache and I have to leave soon. Sorry. I'll never let it go this long, normally.
get well soon!
It's a beacon of mediocrity.
Three age groups like this country: gap year students, old people and those that have always dreamed of living abroad but have no imagination. These groups are all dislikable.
Fucking dull and its too hot.
It's always around the middle on charts for population and GDP and coolness.
The standard unit of area shall be the nanoWales, defined as 1nWa, representing 0.0000207km2 or 20.78m2.
* Football pitch = 194.89nWa
* Wales = 1,000,000,000nWa
* Belgium = 1.47Wa
* Democratic Republic of Congo = 113.3Wa
* Known universe (rolled out flat) = 19468502x1012x10256Wa
* The eruption of Vesuvius took out an area of 13 milliWales, although the effects of the blast were felt up to a thousand brontosauruses away. Survivors reported rocks and pumice the size of Bulgarian airbags falling from the sky for three days before the tragedy, and experts have calculated the total debris would fill around 120,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
This is a tricky one. The political debate behind it is long and uninteresting, so we will skip it and report only that it has been determined that the volume of Wales has been defined as including all topsoil, land and equipment, up to, but not beyond, one metre below the surface.
This means everything below ground (coal) is English, while the Welsh can retain their cherished national symbol, the leek.
Wales is 20,780 square km x 1 metre depth
= 20,780,000,000 cubic metres = 103,300,000 cubic furlongs.
For those with an unhealthy interest in such things, this is also equivalent to 405000000000000 US tablespoons or 196600000000 biblical letheks.
The standard unit of force shall be the Norris (No), representing 100 newtons.
Scientists believe an asteroid as small as five Bulgarian airbags* in volume could strike the earth with a force of two million Norrises, flattening an area of 500 nanoWales.
*Bulgarian airbag (C-cup Posh Spice - allegedly) = 1.1gf**
**The base unit of volume shall be the EU standard (5cm radius) grapefruit, defined as 1gf***
***1gf = 523.6cc, 4.426 US gills, 0.0144 UK bushels, 0.5236 Chinese Imperial sheng, or 0.9625 Ancient Roman sextaria.
this deserves a bump
I can not think of one reason to go. Not one.
God bless Belgium.
Leffe is nice but I have no need to go to Belgium for a pint.
we're so average and lacking in extremes it's great
God I hate Wales.
