I kind of think it's also a sign of respect to a country to say their name as it's meant to be - rather than using a bastardized form as many languages make it to be.

I'll have to ask my coworker tomorrow, but I'm pretty sure I recall how to say China in Chinese.

Hell, I can't say "Danmark" properly either. I felt kinda lame until maswan told me that I need to fill my mouth with porridge first. [Razz]

Are you sure he said 'porridge'?

BabaKiueria

[edit] for the benefit of those who haven't seen it, this is a very funny satire of the conquest of australia by Europeans. A group of white aussies are having a barbie by the beach when a boatload of aboriginals in military uniforms arrives. The soldiers ask "what's the name of this place" the whites reply "It's a barbecue area"
"I claim the continent of BabaKiueria in the name of the aboriginal people"

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Well, Canada's ok on that count. (The word 'Canada' is Algonquin for "what the Hell is pale-face doing with that moose?")

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)

Hmm, I think Cameron Diaz is very oogly, as is Jessica Simpson *shudder* I'm curious how long it is before people realize she's ugly as a horse and dosn't sing half as well.. Also, Christina Richie and Paris Hilton [shake head] [thumbsdown]

Of course, I can't think of any 'star' that I think is even remotely attractive..

I'm curious... About what, you ask? EVERYTHING!
