Fun with events like badminton where several contestants didn't want to win. Eight disqualifications because of it. I am shocked.

Ah the old German joke comes out. If Her Maj is German - given that this stems from Prince Albert in the mid 1800's, how many Australians are actually Australian

He isnt australian! he is from Tasmania. Which is, as i type, in the process of being transfered cuz of royal marriages to its new rightfull owner.
Thot i saw her on the stands the other day, sitting next to Kate btw. Obviously the deal is being made!

Playing EU3 too much,

Rasmus

P.S Credit is due. Seem well depending on outcome of appeals that the international badminton federation did what the organizers/judges at the games didnt have the balls to do.

The original Australians had their land flogged by the British My ancestors got their land in Ireland flogged by the British too, fitted-up because they complained about it and sent to Australia where, after release, they helped build a country that's now the envy of the world. So I've got no problem with calling myself an "actual Australian"

As long as Princess Mary arranges Tasmania to be governed by strict young Danish women in fetishistic uniforms, I'm all for it!

So, let me get this right. If you're in the Army you can bunk off an operational tour of duty to paddle a canoe in a competition but if you're a Royal Navy submariner you can't miss an operational patrol to be at home for your daughter's birth? Just checking.

No, wrong. If you're in the army you can bunk off an operational tour to row a boat.

England is a country, right? So what's with this Team GB? Then there's confusion about what bits of the UK are in it. Northern Ireland? Wales? British Overseas Territories? Say what?

No confusion. We are four countries - three kingdoms and a principality. Together we are the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. For the Olympics the whole of the UK is in it - e.g. Mark Cavendish is a Manxman I believe; Guernsey and Jersey would be included too. For the Commonwealth Games we compete as our individual countries - no idea why, but its the same for football. I think if you are from the Channel Islands you can play for any of the home countries (not 100% on that). Simples.

Is it really worth it? I mean, I can understand getting a little (needed) competitive advantage from the canibals of P/NG, but the Kiwis? You must really be in dire straits to consider such an act!

Hey, we've got our "Octomom" here with 14 children to her 'credit'. Although she probably wouldn't be interested in competing, as there may be a discontinuation of her government aid were she to have a visible means of support other than the public dole.

It's not working particularly well. Their kingdoms/united kingdoms/united kingdom/countries are getting beaten by other singular nation states. They are being gracious hosts though.
