Since we're doing the book thing, I thought we could do the Country Quiz

You're Malaysia!
You're really lanky and you enjoy spreading out over a lot of different places, but you've really got your act together these days. It's still hard for you to get respect, so you keep making greater and greater things so people will finally recognize that you've arrived. If you keep persevering, people will hopefully recognize that you have more than a nice spice cabinet to show for yourself.

These things seem to get things right.

Most people think you're ineffective, but you are trying to completely save the world from itself, so there's always going to be a long way to go.  You're always the one trying to get friends to talk to each other, enemies to talk to each other, anyone who can to just talk instead of beating each other about the head and torso.  Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, and you get very schizophrenic as a result.  But your heart is in the right place, and sometimes also in New York.

You're Brazil!
You're athletic, charming, and probably a good dancer.
Unfortunatley, you don't really mind chopping down the rain forest, and you probably
consider homeless people expendable in certain circumstances. Of course, your
personality is so diverse that it's hard to track down exactly what you're like. You
definitely like Pele, the World Cup, and shouting “gooooal” at the
top of your lungs.

You're Thailand!
Calmer and more staunchly independent than almost all those around you, you have a long history of rising above adversity. Recent adversity has led to questions about your sexual promiscuity and the threat of disease, but you still manage to attract a number of tourists and admirers. And despite any setbacks, you can really cook a good meal whenever it's called for. Good enough to make people cry.

You're Mexico

While some people think you're poor and maybe a little corrupt, you know where it's at, enjoying good food and nice beaches. You like to take things a little slower than those around you, and you really wish the air were cleaner, but sometimes compromises must be made.
For some reason, Chevrolet keeps trying to sell you Novas as well, even though they don't really go.

You're Ireland!
Mystical and rain-soaked, you remain mysterious to many people, and this
makes you intriguing.  You also like a good night at the pub, though many are just as
worried that you will blow up the pub as drink your beverage of choice.  You're good
with words, remarkably lucky, and know and enjoy at least fifteen ways of eating a potato.
 You really don't like snakes


Cool - I've got a bit of Irish ancestry, and in this case, the beverage of choice would be some really good, very strong Irish tea. I do love Irish tea - and an Irish friend of mine got me a box of some rather good stuff for my birthday that I keep in my office (turns out it [can] be found in the Irish section of a nearby supermarket of ours - the Super Stop & Shop has *lots* of different things), making for a good way to start some rather early class days. Hmm, thinking of slightly harder to obtain teas, I realized that I should probably bring some Mountain Chai back the next time I'm to CO. It might not be Irish tea, but that doesn't stop it from being a pretty good way to start the day off. Not to mention the fact that I equate some nice thoughts with it [Smile] .

I should probably sleep now, but I think 3 cups of coffee & 2 cups of tea have put a little extra Xanthine-derivative in my blood stream today [Wink] . I'd rather have the real stuff, though [Big Grin] .

You're Canada!
People make fun of you a lot, but they're stupid because you've got a much better life than they do. In fact, they're probably just jealous. You believe in crazy things like human rights and health care and not dying in the streets, and you end up securing these rights for yourself and others. If it weren't for your weird affection for ice hockey, you'd be the perfect person.

 - You're India!
A great thinker and leader, you have a great deal of power despite being really poor. You like movies, cows, and you probably are a vegetarian and may even be a pacifist. You've probably been moving away from pacifism lately, though, as you get more and more defensive that everyone around you is trying to hurt you. How about a nice game of chess?

I like pigs more than I like cows but piggies are so cute! I'm so conflicted. I'm not a veggy though. Hmm...the rest is true. Scary.

I got Iraq!

An outcast from all you meet, you have very few friends who haven't later backstabbed you in some way or another. And you've made your share of mistakes... a little torture, a little coercion, a little stealing, it was all part of a day's work. It's hard to say if it deserves the kind of treatment you're getting now, though. When people look for someone to point to with a worse life than they have, they think of you first.

Whoops [Smile] (I knew I was against the Iraq War for a reason)

You're Poland!
People tend to think you're stupid and you were probably voted Least Likely to Succeed by your high school class. These people are mostly stupid themselves, and are just judging their opinion of you on your ability to defend yourself, which is admittedly pretty poor. But there's lots more to life than defending yourself from being picked on and pulled apart! There's labor unions to join and holiness to produce! You'll survive yet!

You're Japan!
You tried to beat everyone around you physically, and when that didn't work, you turned to mental arts. Not only is this more acceptable to those people, but you're really good at mental arts. Somehow you're able to fit a great deal of industry into small spaces, and this has generated a lot of income for you. Now if you could just stop eating whale meat, you'd be making real progress.

You're China!
Big and powerful, you have a long history behind you with more good and bad than you care to remember, or are really capable of remembering. Lately, in older age, you've gotten sort of crochety and even mean-spirited. There is still a lot that's beautiful about you, but most of the focus people have when they think about you is how hard it is to work with you. There's hope that you might start opening up to people, but lots of people have bumper stickers about how much you should change

You're Vietnam!

After years of muddling through on your own, you've finally repaired yourself to a point of respectability. You would have been much better off had people you didn't like not kept insisting on spending so much time with you. But those times are fading quickly and these days you're pretty sure you won't get burned.
Star power!

You're the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics!
You have nothing to lose but your chains, and since you had all these chains lying around when you lost them, you promptly put them on others. Nevertheless, you are very industrious, with a knack for coming through in the clutch when it looks like all is lost. Despite your hard work, many people think you no longer exist, or that you could break up at any moment. You're good in theory, but the practice needs work.

You're Egypt! Curator of ancient mystical secrets, your life on the surface is fairly typical these days. Though you are in denial about more things than most people. Nevertheless, you're trying to convince people that you're safe despite your more volatile and unstable times that seem to be behind you.You like cats a whole lot.

You're the United States of America!

You were probably a big bully in school, and odds are that
you're still a big bully.  You make promises that you break, you manipulate
everyone around you, and you're awfully materialistic.  On the other hand,
you're pretty inventive and have a really good sense of justice.  You just
never get around to applying the idea of justice to yourself.  Incredible
potential remains yours to take advantage of.

"You're the United Nations......"

I resent that Slander..... Six boolean oriented questions fail to yield statistically relavent answers in this case.

Being "right" 51% of the time may be a "winning" percentage, but that doesn't make it good.
