View Full Version : What does the World think of the World?

Okay, I'm sorry I couldn't resist it, I mean bl**dy hell, evey time I log on these days there's a new thread asking PPRuNers what they think about someone's little corner of the earth. I mean next we'll have a thread 'what do PPRuNers think of Afghanistan, Ajerbagan (don't know how to spell it sorry!) & every other 'stan'.

We're going to do a run down of every country in the world at this rate. What's this geography week, nationalist week, why all this obsession with where you live & what people think of it, so what! I mean these threads are in danger of overrunning the forum so I just couldn't resist the sarcasm, sorry! Now how about some original threads eh otherwise maybe a geography/travel forum would be a good idea? :rolleyes:

Glad you raised the subject.

Am thinking of taking a cycling holiday in Afganistan and Azerbaijan, staying at Youth Hostels and small hotels. What would you suggest as an itinerary?:E

Oh no, gone & dug me own grave, I have! :uhoh:


BTW mate your profile doesn't fit 'youth hostels/cycling'. You on a wind up mate? ;)

If we're going to do this properly, we need to start at the beginning and work out if any countries are before Afghanistan, alphabetically.

Anyone ? (no, I don't mean Anyone, the country, I mean...........anyone.)

It remains better than the next best option.

The only snippet that comes to mind is when Mahatma Gandhi was asked what he thought of western civilisation. He replied that he thought it would be a very good idea.

Never been to Afghanistan or Azerbaijan. Been to Aldershot, though.

From the UN list above,

It seems most countries at war during WW2 joined on 24th Oct 1945 except Australia, they joined on 1st Nov
Anybody know why???:confused:

You mean this one?
I'm not optimistic...........
Come back in twenty years, with your Xray, analysis, echographies, scanners...........
Will look what remains as natural ressources, try doing something.............if we can still breath.
