Given Obamas drone predilection, just wondering how much he paid attention in geography class, given his Maldives error. Should I be building a shelter?

Brian, you should worry. Where I live is being constantly confused with Tanzania and you know how worrying anything from there can be. :eek:

I thought you were talking about the cricket, Ken. On that subject, I'd say it's about as sure as sure things go.

Yeah....me too!
I thought you were talkin' about the upcoming cricket Ashes Test Series, in which I think Australia will definitely "Get a Hiding!".

I think that England will win but not as by such a large score as earlier this year. Never ever be over confident when playing
any Australian team.

England 3-1 with one draw!

just wondering how much he paid attention in geography class

Since he's from Hawaii, I'm sure Barry knows about all 50 states in the world, not just the usual 48. All the other 11 "countries" are just Disney fantasy, and can be found in the World Showcase at Disney World. Mickey Mouse and Tinkerbell, on the other hand, are real, as any fule kno.

I'm sure Barry knows about all 50 states in the world,During his first presidential campaign, didn't he say he'd visited "57 States"?

A couple of years back I met an American teacher, who was working on sabbatical in Africa, who had taught Mr Obama at his school in Hawaii. He had some trenchant insights in the POTUS that I won't going into here but I suspect that the juvenile Obama didn't really focus on geography as he should have.

Talking of states...

Shouldn't the US of A have 52 states, so 1 for each week of the year?

That would be neat & tidy.

I too thought this was about cricket - being a Scot I dont have much of an interest in the game although I once shared a hotel in Bangladesh with the Scottish international cricket team.Did not even know they existed - nice enough people even if a little bit odd.
