Yeah, but two things: One, how could one use an up to date list? And two, only JasonF answered with Iceland, so does it really matter?

Any country that has buildings like this must be better off than the US

I considered Iceland too, but I immediately chucked it considering how they went into the shitter for the last year.

A quick google showed that Iceland's GDP has yet to collapse because GDP calculations include net import/exports and Iceland's currency is so devalued they can't afford to buy (import) anything, which boosts their net exports and actually helps their GDP.

Re: Politics & World Events (Reverse) Sheep, Round 2 — Electric Obama-Loo

Well, just consider it a tie.

I went back and counted ALL the scores from the past two games. The first game, Sheep, was a positive number. The second game, Reverse Sheep, was then subtracted from the first. Hence, the highest number is the "league" winner so far.

If you scored 100 points in the first game, and 50 this game, your total is 50. If someone else scored 200 points in the first game, and 60 in this game, their total is 40.

Here are the results:

Standings: Through Round 2

Rockmjd23 : 161

Jeremy517 : 151
missflores : 135
wmansir : 131
JasonF : 124
belboz : 121
orangecrush18 : 113
Mordred : 105
CRM114 : 104
Jason : 104
arminius : 96
The Bus : 95
wishbone : 95
Birrman54 : 85
Red Dog : 84
Venusian : 84
Nick Danger : 78
Tracer Bullet : 72
DeltaSigChi4 : 60
Funkpie : 26

If you didn't play both games, you don't appear in that list.

A good tie-breaker for this game would be the one with the most unique answers.

Anyway, congrats to missflores and Rockmjd23 -- well played!

My result was miserable, but I had a lot of fun playing and watching the ruckus unfold. I hope we can do this again! Thanks, Bus!
