Thanks Bus!



This is the most stirring display of gallantry and sportsmanship since Mountbatten gave India back to the Punjabs.

Good job, Bus. This turned out better than expected. Thankfully, we had that Sports Team question.

I can't believe you rat bastards picked Phoenix, Reagan and Interior in such sheepish numbers. Like venusian said, at least I'm not last.

You know what other country had an economy that went into the shitter last year? The United States. I'm sure Iceland's per capita GDP has declined, but then again, so has ours.

Yeah but I thought their decline was much worse than ours.

True, but we at least still have a somewhat functioning economy, unlike, Iceland, which has to send the entirely of its population back to fishing.

Give a country a fish, it will eat for a day. Teach a country to fish, it will have a higher per capita GDP than the United States.

As always, thanks to the Bus for running this and congratulations to everyone who scored better than me.

As for the rest of you: suck it, losers!

I didn't realize the results would be cumulative. I was best man in a wedding last Saturday and didn't have time to participate in this round.

It's going to be a mix of both. Reverse Sheep is usually more fun to do, so that's what I'd like to focus on.

Education was my first thought and I figured it was too easy. Shoulda gone with my gut.

I'll be in for another round, even if I'm always too late to add to the discussion.

Stars and stripes? Come on!

Kudos again to The Bus.

I got about half my answers WRONG! How the hell did you wind up within two points of me?
